A couple of nights camping mission at Lane Poole with Mum and Nonna saw me land my first redfin perch! This perfectly complements my recent freshwater success with trout.
I caught two perch from the Murray River running nearby our camp site. One was too small to keep and the other a bit bigger but good enough to fry up for breakfast. We camped at Baden Powell camp ground which is perfect for camping with the oldies, with good toilets and fancy camp kitchens. We camped a couple of months ago, before the fires in the area that devastated Yarloop. It was quite cold as you can see by nonna rugged up catching some early morning rays.

Fermented fish and deadly nightshade? I’ll stick to batteries!
You can’t eat batteries!
Nice pics Joe — is that little fish you are holding the Bait or the catch ??
Hey Bruce that fish was the one we kept and ate for breakfast. I wasn’t feeling that hungry so decided to catch a small one.
Redfin is an introduced pest species (although good eating and fun to catch). “one was too small to keep” – the article does not say what you did with it however it is illegal to put redfin back in the river irrespective of size.
Yep the small one was dispatched humanely but not kept for eating.
