Jungle Perch North Queensland

Good wet seasons throughout the last decade have seen the population of Jungle Perch in our creek in north Queensland recover from the extreme droughts of the mid nineties - time to go fishing....

One of the pleasures of fishing for Jungle Perch is the extremely beautiful country they live in - they generally require good clear water (being such visual predators) and dense overhanging riparian vegetation for a supply of terrestrial insects - the clarity of the water this fish was caught in can be seen by oberservations of its mates swimming around after it was hooked.

Awesome footage Jim, thanks for sharing.  :thumbsup

Junglies are a great fish, could watch that sort of footage all day. In water that clear you'd need to be quiet & no shadows hey?



Here's some more JP footage

Here's some more footage from our special creek in NQ

Jungle Perch are extremely inteligent fish and you seldom get a second strike out of the same hole once a fish has been landed or they have felt the hooks of an artifical lure - the fish in this pool were a bit keener!

The last fish accessible pool below the impassable upstream waterfall always hosts large Jungle Perch - the strike from this one demolished my fine mono leader and broke me off....
