mate, redfin would eat a dead shoe! honestley if you bait fish, lure fish or soft plastics. even jigging against dead wood will produce redfin if there there.

 Grew up catching redfin in the Hotham River through Boddington and had best success strolling along the banks flicking little spinners or if I was feeling lazy just a few earthworms generally did the trick

light line and any small lure.  let the lure sink a fair bit.  celta spinners are probably the best. 

a couple worms on a hook and a small split shot to help you cast out.  let it sink to the bottom, then slowly retrieve

worms, worms, worms & worms.

If there's Redfin there you'll catch 'em using worms.
