5/6wt seems much underpowered for the bass I'd caught when I explored this, but then again they were really good sized large and smallmouths. The flies I threw at them also required some real grains to propel. Once hooked, their dives into the thick weeds would harm my abilities to crank them out. I guess it's a matter of how you approach the pursuit since bass come in such a wide range of sizes and environments.
