PB redfin from lake buffalo victoria.


Recommended Posts

Went out for a yak session last Friday to lake Buffalo. Fished for about 3 hrs and covered 7km of lake. I caught a few smaller redfin in amongst a fairly freed section. Just as I thought that they were all small tellers I get this hit, peel some line off. I recently bought a raider II Mexican fire 1-4kg rod to replace my daiwa protester-X IM7 (shaped it in 3 prices, but that is another storey). The new rod is a tad lighter and bending like I have a small marlin on. After using my hobie to pull us outta the snag while I tame the fish, I i get him in the yak and easily my PB redfin. Measured 37cm. Caught on SD-40 and 2lb line. Redfin arson surprisingly tasty, so he came home for a feed. Great way to break in a new rod. I will put up a pic when I can get back on my pc. power is off atm, think they are replacing power poles down the street.

jeez! been a while between reports nitris!!

loving the fishing down there? or up here better?

nice redfin too. good to see the ole afo tape too :P

The fishing is ok down here, it has taken me a while but I catch fish every time I go out weather it be redfin or trout. Took a while to work out trout but I got them worked out now. Will be moving back up to Queensland in 3 weeks, and looking foward to fishing up there again. I do prefer queensland for fishing more variety. All I can catch here are trout and redfin.


Caught that brown last week @ 32cm


caught this little rainbow today @ 25cm

both trout just down the road from my house. I will miss the walk to trout fishing, but will be loving some salt water again. I love that AFO tape, I use it all the time :woohoo:
