Perch fishing

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Why not have a go at catching some specimen perch this winter.  Some of our lakes have perch up to 3-4 lbs in weight and are in cracking condition.  Jordan Sands sent in these photos with three perch he caught on Alice Springs, one of which was 2 lbs 6oz.  All were caught on worm and prawn.
