Finesse power fishing?

Although no where near my personal best perch, this one fought like a full grown fish. I may sound like I'm exaggerating, but I'm not because this fish really did put on a good fight. It was on a late summer's evening, I power fishing near some reeds by the river with a 1/8 oz spinnerbait retrieved very close to the bottom. I knew that there had to be something down there. It was pure fishermen instincts. I was targeting the same spot and it did not take long for the hit to come. The fish was a good fighter from hook-set to the net. I was surprised to actually find that it was just an above average size perch measuring slightly less than 30cm! Nevertheless, it was one hell of a 'power packed' fight. If you're into 'finesse power fishing', this is 'the' fish that you would hope to catch on every cast.

The excellent weather compliments this 'power packed' fight on finesse tackle. The fish was only about 30cm in length. Some big ones don't even fight as good.
