The Bass has now become probably THE most targeted individual species in the UK, and is about the only species where you could use literally hundreds of techniques to catch one.
No other single species could be caught using techniques as diverse as fly fishing or live baiting a sand eel, to using surface poppers or a whole pulley penneled squid! Bass are caught by all of these methods, and our Lure&Bait series can be used to great effect on quite a few of them.
But what about fishing heavier? Bigger baits, live baits and big leads? That’s where our two new Bass rods come in. They are both capable of casting large baits into big seas, and landing bigger Bass, with the Tournament Bass giving you the somewhat unusual option of ‘casting’ a live mackerel into the surf and large launce baits to the horizon on the open beach!
Both of our new Bass rods have had great anglers to test them. Super keen bait bass man from Cornwall, Ed Schliffker, who we asked tocatch basically what the could on them, including bass from his famous surf beaches around Padstow, says:
“Built superbly for casting and fishing and the performance gets a thumbs up from me”.
This 12′ 6″ Tournament version is primarily designed for the use of bass at range in a big sea, when the key to success is bait in the breakers. But as bass fishing also dictates, it wasn’t designed solely for distance but for specific big bait situations as well.
Being 12’6” in length it enables you to cast bigger baits with ease, whether clipped or flapping. You can use fixed spool or multiplier reels with braid if required.
This isn’t a specialist’s rod and to anyone who wants a predominately lighter and thinner beach style rod with a lighting tip to hold in the surf, this is for you.
