Bass fishing is a thriving sport in Australia. Because of the new lure designs, large tournament trails and nationally-covered competitions, more and more Aussies are getting into Bass fishing. The main difference between American and Australian Bass fishing comes down to the fish itself. The Australian Bass is a unique species found only on this continent. Aussie anglers love the aggressiveness and toughness of Australian Bass, making it the most popular freshwater sports fish in the country.
