NOW Thats a different colouration.  Never seen one like that before.

Were you using crazy deeps or something similar?

Nice fish, that's pretty

Nice fish, that's pretty standard shallow water colouration (on the east coast at least). 

Usually fish from water deeper than about 20 metres are a pink colour.

nice trout andy .ive had

nice trout andy .ive had similar problems loosing trout to the reef .ended up tripling the lenght of our leader and uping the leader breaking strain to 100 lb. you got less hits and the lures dont swim as deep but when they bury you into a bommie you could drive back around and reeeeef them out.saved myself a heap just by getting the lure back and not donating it as fish jewlery
always in it just the depth that varies
