Greg Hart with a great 42cm Estuary Perch caught on a Zman Slim Swim just before dark last night. There has been some ripper perch caught this past week as the water began to slow down and clear up a bit. These fish have been spread right throughout the Hopkins River and other south west estuaries. Metal blades have also been fishing well for them and on the bait side of things fresh shrimp has been getting the bites.
