Surf Fishing with Tenkara?

Postby grampa » Sun Aug 07, 2016 10:10 pm

Has anyone out there taken Tenkara to the surf, particularly on the West coast? I've been fishing trout via Tenkara for several years in mountain streams, but the mountain streams are 2+ hours away, while the beach is only 30 minutes from home here in SoCal.

I'm thinking that a heavier Tenkara rod might be suitable for surf perch, croakers, corbina, etc, but would love to get some instruction from someone who has already done it.

I haven't fished the surf with my Yamame but I thought about it. I'm in SoCal too and have fished the surf in the past. Carpenteria, Santa Claus Lane, Malibu, and north of Santa Monica. Where do you fish the surf?

My Tenkara Rods:
13' Ayu, 12' Yamame, 11' with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

My Wife's Tenkara Rods:
12' Ebisu and 13.5' Amago, 12' Iwana with a conversion handle, and an Ito.
