    Biggest Redfin Perch?

    Nice. Worth the hard yards for a fish like that. Bait or lure mate? Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    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. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Biggest Redfin Perch?

    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. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Another adventure chasing trout..

    I try and walk quietly and fish in stealth mode in the waters I fish. Must admit I am bit stuck in my ways when I do fish trout waters and am usually targeting redfin. Almost caught a nice trout for the first time recently but a bit of tailwalking and headshaking let the hook fall out. Carrying some little Mepps spinners next time I go up there. I think trebles will definitely help more than a single hook jighead but swear by plastics lately coz I can rig them weedless and pepper the structure. Trebles get snagged too easily so that is why I am curious about any techniques to pin trout on soft plastics. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Biggest Redfin Perch?

    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. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    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. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Stunning fishing real estate matem Bit more user friendly than some of the trout waters we have in SA. Out of interest have you ever caught a trout on soft plastics? They seem to compete with the redfin to grab it but are too fussy to get hooked up. Smart fish[emoji54] Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Small Daiwa spin reels Vs Shimano?

    I have never had an issue with any of my Shimano reels from Siennas up to Stradics. And my local tackle shop takes care of any warranty issues with other stuff I have bought. I have never had to deal with the manufacturer. And that's why I don't shop at BCF or as I call them CBFd.

    I like Shimano. Ten year warranty. Nuff said. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    And fish your lures slow for bream. They usually hit it on the drop or pause. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
