Top 10 metro redfin hotspots ?

Post by ChrisD » Tue Mar 12, 2019 8:33 am

After giving the SPs another crack yesterday afternoon on the Yarra....and having many follows from Redfin, just couldn't hook on up, I thought I should keep trying.
Figure Redfin weren't a bad target species, however short of a few spots along the Yarra I don't really have any solid leads on metro Redfin.
So figured it might be worth asking for the wisdom of the crowd to come up with a Top 10 locations.
As always, not looking for spot on locations but rather general ideas to go towards a Top 10 list.

How far up in the yarra did you encounter those redfins?
Karkarook lake used to be swarmed with them, but I haven't caught any for a while. Unsure where else in Melbourne that holds redfin. Carps everywhere.

Best spots along the Yarra that I have found are - Yarra Glen, Worri Yallock and Millgrove.
I'm sure they are throughout the Yarra but I have been unsuccessful tracking them down anywhere else so far.

Caught my PB reddie at Karkarook and used to see people pull them out one after the other down there, although that's going back a few years now. Can't say I've caught very many within the boundaries of metropolitan Melbourne, but I have been catching a few at the Upper Coliban Reservoir and the Coliban River, both of which aren't too far beyond city limits.
