the world record is not 4 pounds 3oz because over here in england the record is about 5 and a half pounds and perch over 4 pounds are very common

That, my friend, is a gigantic perch!!!  :o :woot: :o And it is "only" 4 lbs. 6 oz.!
The state record perch for Pennsylvania was caught Ice Fishing in February, 2000.
It was 16.25" long and weighed 2 lbs. 9 oz.

Just FYI.....the perch in the UK are not the same as the yellow perch in the US. The european perch are Perca Fluviatilis ...and the yellow perch in the US are Perca flavescens.

Well, UKpro, I'm siding with Esox on this one.  The European/Asian perch is completely geographically isolated from the North American one, and most scientific thinking is that the two are separate species.  The European one (P. fluviatilis) is HUGE compared to the N.A. one (P. flavescens) , and is often called the Redfin Perch as opposed to the N.A. Yellow Perch.  For a good, but general comparison, go to the link below to see the difference.

They dont even look the same.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

Those world records can not be correct.  The New York state Musky is 69 lbs. 15 oz.  This list shows the record as 65 lbs.

That fish, caught by Art Lawton in the St. Lawrence River, is no longer recognized by the IGFA as the world record, due to conflicts regarding the actual size of the fish (doubts were raised as to how accurate the weight was, based on length and girth). So the IGFA now recognizes the current record, which came from Chippewa Flowage, in Wisconsin (It was Chippewa Flowage, was it not? Correct me if I'm not...). However, the state of NY still recognizes Lawtons fish for the state record.

If there are European perch in Canada they were probably illegally imported. I know it would be illegal to do so here in the U.S. However there are a few renagades doing some reaseach on them here in closed systems but they aren't supposed to have them. I was told this by a PHD colleague but he had no names.
I live in the midwest now but have fond memories of fishing in New England as a kid.

one of the main differences i can see in these fish is that ours doesnt have red fins, and the UKs does ;D
