Hey mate,

How do you find the Tenkara rod for bass? Living in Queensland I will probably be chasing bass and bream on the Tenkara and then sneaking off to Ebor etc. to fish for Trout when time allows.

Cheers,

I've only caught 2 so far and had another opportunity this morning, but I am fishing land based and have only been going for about a week. I usually fish for them off my tinnie with a regular fly rod. I guess I'm just using the bass for practise for when I go down south to chase trout. I can tell you they are a lot spookier than most trout with less opportunities(in the summer that is, winter is another story)The hard part of bass fishing on Tenkara is finding locations, off a kyak would be good but land based needs some practise as you'll be roll casting and even bow and arrow style down steep embankments under snags and then being able to distinguish the difference between mullet and bass when sight casting as the larger mullet can look the same as bass and it takes a while to work it out. Creeks with a bit of run and shallows are far more interesting than slow flowing rivers. Waters worth investigating and I intend to do so are the creeks around Rathdowney (when they have had some rain) and the Albert river upper reaches. Queensland is interesting though as we have some suitable streams up north with sooty grunter and jungle perch. I also think southern saratoga could be a viable target and can't wait to have a shot at these also. I do change my leader length a bit when I fish from 12 footers to 18 footers and will probably go up to 23 (mostly furled style) depending on the situation.
