That's one beautiful size reddie & in great condition too..  I used to catch some large ones like that many years ago in the lower Torrens River in the Underdale area.. probably full of carp now days.. Finniss River used to hold some decent ones back then too...

cheers

No photos but my best was up at the Warren in the good old days.

42cm and fat and healthy caught on an 8" scrubby.

I would say your fish is in the high 40s and pushing 2kg or over.

Stunning redfin mate and congrats on a new PB.

Unfortunately, I didn't measure this one ( how stupid of me )  so 40cm was a guess, was a chunky fish which took the lure  1 metre from my feet from the undercut was awesome to watch it scoff the plastic

Yeah most of mine lately have been on weedless Z-man grubs in shimmer pearl and midnight oil.

This fish got pinned by my mate on a shimmer pearl and then went for my grub on the way in.

And three big lunker redfin followed it in to see what all the fuss was about.

Well fed fish.ed4254ed67a12599ebde1c96014ac38d.jpg

1/12 snakelocks in weedless.

Sometimes use 1/8 in the larger waters to cover more ground.

Another way to use them is to remove the weight at the front and fish unweighted but even though you still get good casting distance Z-mans are buoyant and don't get down in front of the fish as well.

Been experimenting with small splitshots on the leader 10cm from the lure when fishing unweighted.

Floats the plastics above the weedbeds.

TT snakeheads is the correct name.

I started calling them snakelocks coz the plastics never get pulled off the jighead.

Rigged correctly you don't even need glue like on other brands of jighead.

Biggest I've weighed was 2.1kg and a touch over 50cm, but that wasnt caught on rod and line. 

 

Have seen a mate land a very healthy 49cm fish and have caught some mid to  high 40's fish myself but no others have cracked that 2kg mark yet. 

 

All have been throughout the hills

Cheers mate..... 

All fell to a pink Z man Grub.... All 3 were caught in the exact spot each cast. Not sure if they were doing there "thing" or was just right place right time.... Also noticed it was just before a big storm was forming... Barometric pressure might of had something to do with it...

Nice looking fish there guys . 

Correct me if I’m wrong but Redfin are a pest aren’t they and can’t be returned to the water ? 

Im assuming you catch them to eat  ? What do they taste like ? 

Just curious 

Good work any way guys

Adrian you must be older than me . Underdale was carp when I was young but a rep that would call into my job would tell me stories of Redfin there .

Found a photo of the big girl. She may have seen even better days previously, judging by the size of her head, but what a beast it was.

      Crabs are still going OK around Semaphore and The Black Pole. Water temps have dropped markably meaning the whiting should now show up during the low and high periods. This is a great time of year when the weather is right where if it calm in the morning it would probably be calm all day. Some nice whiting have come from the Star Wreck, Cabbage Patch, Grange Tyre Reef, West Beach ground, South of Brighton and out from Stanvac. Crabs can still be caught from the Black Pole, Shipping Channel. Largs and Semaphore. Squid are in full swing out from West Beach, Semaphore, Largs, Black Pole and Marino as this is the time where they are breeding and are very aggressive. Port River has plenty of salmon trout between the North Arm and St Kilda. Nice bream have been caught from the Port ramp towards the Birkenhead Tavern. Mullet are still being caught near the mouths of the creeks within the Port River system. West lakes has bream near the rowing club along with some nice soapies. Snook have been thin but there are still a lot between the Black Pole towards St Kilda. Snapper have been great some days but nothing others. Persistence is the key. Best places are No 5 Beacon in the shipping channel, Glenelg breakwater, Stanvac Barges and the Broadway grounds
       
      YORKE PENINSULA
      Port Broughton has plenty of salmon trout, snook, tommies and garfish in the channels. Wallaroo has small mulloway in the marina along with some bream. Crabs are still doing well off the jetty and North Beach. Squid are off the jetty and south of Wallaroo towards Bird Islands. Port Hughes has been doing well in the southern bay for whiting and big garfish, The Light still has plenty of nice sic garfish. Tippera Reef has small snapper south side in 5-6 metres of water. Balgowan has big whiting north towards the cliffs and south towards Chinaman’s. Snapper catches have improved out wide 40KMS SW of Balgowan with fish coming in at 8-9 Kilos. Whiting have now moved in with great catches at Port Hughes, Port Vic, Hardwick Bay, Point Turton, Edithburge and even Stansbury south of the spit. Squid have really fired with squid coming from Clinton, Ardrossan, Port Vincent, Stansbury, Edithburgh, Turton, Hardwick Bay, Port Vic, Port Hughes and Wallaroo.
       
      SOUTH
      Waits has produced a mix of salmon trout and salmon and Salt Creek is still firing on the mulloway towards the TEA TREE
       
      FRESHWATER
      Callop are doing very well along the Murray from Cobdogla down towards Mannum.
      Sorry for the short version but haven’t been well so this is the least I ca provide for my followers. Hope to do better next week when I fully recover.
