Tenkara on Lake Erie

by JEFF D.

I caught my personal best Goby at Lake Erie this Fall. Tenkara is a bit risky on this large body of water as you never know when a large sheepshead or Smallmouth Bass may try to wreck your rod. 1 lb tippet, size 24 Tiemco hook with a small piece of worm. Your site is awesome BTW.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


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