After a humiliating day on the water being outfished by bait fishermen, I had an epiphany. I’ve decided that I’m giving up tenkara. It was fun while it lasted but after seeing these guys outfish me ten to one with worms and corn, I can’t see any reason why I’d stick with a “cane pole version of fly fishing” when live bait catches so many more fish. Let’s face it, bait works and tenkara is for jerks! So, I’m selling off all my tenkara gear and dusting off the old spinning rod and bait bucket. Effective immediately, I’ll also be retooling the site.
Ladies and gentlemen…allow me to introduce:
That’s right. No more sakasa kebari, yamame, or other funny Japanese words. From now on, it’s just straight talk about the best way to fish worms, minnows, crayfish, and dough balls. Thanks to all my loyal fans who followed TenkaraTalk over the years and I hope you’ll enjoy BaitTalk just as much. So put down that silly 13 ft. cane pole and grab your snelled hooks. Join me on a journey of fishing the way it was meant to be–staring at a bobber for four hours while drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon.
