As part of the Perth Boat Show for 2023 a limited 25-team tournament was organised, spots filled up fast in anticipation, and the Swan River didn’t disappoint with some quality fish caught over both days.
Mother and son duo Jenny and Joseph Gardner extended their day 1 lead to hold on to 1st place with a strong day 2 bag including the big bream for the day coming in at 1.160kg. The pair fished man-made structure with the new Blue Lip Baits Pygmy Mussel in both Dark Night and Muddy Bank. Thrown tight to the structure, letting it sink before giving it very short and subtle hops.
2nd place getters Stuart McCarthy and Aden Miller decided to stick with man-made structure as well, bringing back a great kicker fish both days and two very consistent bags. The pair caught their fish using the Blue Lip Baits Pygmy Mussel and Zipbaits Rigge 56 hardbody lures.
Adam Smart from Team DG took out the Big Bream prize for day 1 on his 3rd cast of the morning, using a Zman Slimswim 1/16th with 4lb fluorocarbon leader.
A big thank you goes out to the Perth Boat Show for letting us put on this event and the sponsors.
