3Lb is a VERY nice fish. The biggest I ever saw was 1Lb from a bomb crater pit on the Wirral, UK. Before and after that day the water only produced 4oz perch.

@Vodkaman I didn't weigh him but looking at some length to weight charts I guess it was about 3 pounds as you stated. I have access to a large lake here that is restricted to very few people and is catch and release only. Due to its location and the fact that the owners only allow catch and release means there are some huge fish in there. The average size perch that I have caught there is about 38 centimeters.

@Big EppIt sure was! As I was telling Dave above its a pretty special lake that's just full of giant perch. I'm out three or four days a week at the crack of dawn before work (its about a mile from my office) with the kayak.
