Tenkara in Lowcountry Swamps

A place to discuss techniques and rigging options for use in "non-mountain stream" areas such as lakes and warm-water areas, as well as non-traditional tenkara techniques such as nymphing.

Tenkara in Lowcountry Swamps

Postby myles.brandt@gmail.com » Mon Dec 23, 2013 2:18 pm

Took my tenkara rod out on a hike through some old rice canals left over from the plantation days outside of Charleston, SC. I caught plenty of brim, but what I was most excited about was two redfin pickerel. The blackwater is very slow, so I figured slow action would work the best. However, fast action was most productive. Puslating the kebari quickly and a quick retrieve on bass poppers worked. The redfin pickerel are quite aggressive. Fun fish in the most unexpected of places.

Looks like Mr Redfin is finding plenty to eat too. Nice fish.
