Cheers Brownie and Lx, my mate landed teddies at 45 and 45.5cm in the weeks leading up to that catch.
Those are some beautiful fish guys, it’s very interesting how fish can look so appealing to some (fishermen/fisherwomen) and not so much to others. Keep the pictures coming!

That’s a ripper fish there Brownie :thumbsup: My best Redfin, caught at Lake Wendouree. A mate bought a few of those cheapo “pen rods” for a laugh, casting a small hard body the tiddly rod buckled then the fish put up a good fight trying to tangle me in the rowing lanes. It was a fatty that went 46....

If your main issue is tangles, a twisted dropper rig is good for reducing them. The droppers come off the main line at a 90 degree angle which reduces tangles greatly however they take a little more effort to tie. Nowadays I pre tie my rigs with a swivel at the top, put them in zip lock bags then wh...

I haven’t seen the wanderer awning in person, I was going to get one but the side walls were expensive when I was looking (might not be the case now) so I ended up going with one of these: https://www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/products/awnings/adventure-kings-2-5x2-5-awning/adventure-kings-premium-4wd-si...

If worried about losing jigs, using heavier line and leader can improve your retrieval chances if you snag up. Heavy enough line (around 20lb) that you can pull on the snag and straighten the barbs works for me, it will reduce casting distance if using light 2.5 jigs though.
