long time yak fisherman and short time kfdu member, looking to get out and chase some wild fish with the closed season coming to an end, have fun in the stocked impoundments but heard the real ones pull harder... wat size line and leader do we recommend for wild bassin in skinny water on foot or in yak if I can fit it in?
what areas should I start targeting, new to wild bass fishing. (want to break my virginity sooner rather than later when this closed season finally comes to an end)
got a quite capable little 4wd that would be perfect for getting to some spots hopefully :gu:

Hi Josh! All the rivers and creeks up your way have bass in n them and have heaps of public access power it's for you to launch from and explore. I use 8lb braid and 10lb leader during day trips and switch to 15lb with 16lb leader at night. The upgrade after dark is because I cast into country thick with timber that hides some serious bass and I often have no idea where there are going after hook up. Good luck chasing some wild bass and i look forward to your reports.

Cheers

Brad

do your reckon they will be on the bite as soon as open season is upon us, and for this time of year upper reaches or closer to the brackish?

Most will be in the brackish waiting for the next flow to move them upstream. However there will be plenty of what we call resident fish that don't follow the migration downstream and instead stay up in the fresh. I always head out on opening day/ night and find a few, the numbers may not be there like in the peak of summer but they will still be around especially up here in Queensland. They are a bit slower to wake up the further south you go and our winter has been much warmer that usual.
