Flatland Warmwater Keiryu Maybe?
(Lowcountry, South Carolina)
So after reading up a bit on here about short light line for this type of fishing I decided to give it a go. Now I was not using a very long rod (only 10') but I had 10' of 2# test fluorocarbon line and a size 14 hook baited with a piece of worm. I caught a couple bluegills, some yellow perch (including what is considered a nice one for here)and one small largemouth bass. Sadly I did not think to take pictures but I was videoing the whole thing so I made a couple captures of the perch and bass. I am also including a picture of where I caught them. It was a lot of fun and next time I will try a longer pole. Hopefully this summer I can make a trip to some moving water in less flat land LOL. BTW I did the video to show my Grandnephew who I am sending a complete setup so when he visits his other great-uncle in West Virginia he can fish the streams. Sadly I will not be able to teach him the how to except by video before he makes the trip but thankfully that is at least an option unlike when I was his age.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
