The fish might be energetic!!

I used Geecrack “HIP BAG type2” for the first time.
It is big enough to carry big tackle cases such as VS3020.
It has inside pockets for small items.
It helps to store small accessories.
It is a very convenient HIP BAG for anglers!!!

Place : A Dam in Hiroshima prefecture
Rod : DoubleDutch CATWALK /
GALAXXY GXY C65MLF BLUE PANTHER
Lure : NEW G-CRAWLER3.8 / NEW MOON CURLY 3 inch /
LEAF SHRIMP3.8

 

I went fishing to relax.
I could see Mountains covered with the colors of autumn
and felt the autumn wind.
I used DACE SS and ORENTA, but there was no bite.

 

Well then… drop shot fishing.

My fishing buddy and I caught largemouth bass on NEW G-CRAWLER, but we wanted to catch bigger ones.

 

o0480064013790692898

 
Bluegill was caught on NEW MOONCURLY 3 inch.

It was a fishing trip for largemouth bass, not Bluegill, but I enjoyed Bluegill fishing as well.

We started to use a fishfinder to locate fish.
We found fish with it and wanted to catch it.

Cast Leaf Shrimp + Nail Bomb3/32 and let the lure drag along the bottom. Then I had a bite!!
The drag started to slip and the line extended!!
I was a bit panicked, but I really wanted to catch it.
It jumped but I could set the hook firmly in the mouth of the laegemouth bass.

Nice size!!!

Catching fish in cold water can be tough but fishing in cold water is fun!

Field report / GYROSTAR # WHITE PEARL GLOW

Spring tides!!
I was waiting for tide.
Strong wind and surging waves but wade fishing.
I saw bitfish such as sardine and heard the sound of fish boils as well.

 

First, I cast MOHICAN JOHNNY to search out fish widely,
but there was no bite.
I thought fish might stay in the deeper water.
I cast 14g jighead + GYROSTAR (# WHITE PEARL GLOW).
Soon I had a bite! I felt it clearly.
The fish was about average size, but it was very lively
and it wasn’t easy to land it.

After landing it, I looked inside the mouth of the fish.
It was just before swallowing the bait.

Fish were biting like crazy.
Gyrostar looks just like the prey that bass are feeding on.

Windy morning.
It was a light rig fishing day.

 

o0360064013790517769

 
I caught fish on DaisySpin and ORENTA50,
but as it was really windy fish moved down to deeper water.
I am an shallow fishing angler so the fishing condition was a bit tough.

 

o0360064013790517772

 

Anyway the results were…

・40cm – one fish
・35cm – one fish
・20cm ~ 25cm – 30 fish

 

o0360064013790517779

 

There was an area which held a lot of fish.
(Windy sunny area with timber)
I caught about 20 fish only in the area.

Field report / Sea bass caught on DaisySpin

o0640048013790373505

 

Date : October 29
Place : A river in Shizuoka prefecture / Japan
Lure : DaisySpin3/8oz(Blue-Chart-Back)
Rod : DD GALAXXY GXY-C70H DRAG STAR

 

It rained the day before I went fishing.
The river became swollen with water.
I wanted it to rain more though.
I had planned to go to a river which is far from my area first
but I didn’t felt like going there and went fishing on my local river.

I went fishing for sea bass three weeks ago.
I found a boil after I cast my lure, but it wasn’t close to my lure.
I cast SUGURI60 and had a bite, but the hooked sea bass jumped and shook its head trying to throw a hook or lure and I wasn’t able to catch it.
I had many short bites after that, but wasn’t able to set the hook .

I cast DaisySpin just for a change, and finally caught one!
It was 73cm in length.
When I miss a bite and attempt to set the hook again, Daisy Spin works really well.

Field report / Caught more than 100 fish with “Cat Walk”

Date : October 29
Place : Southern part of lake Biwa / Japan
Lure : MoonCurly
Rod : DoubleDutch Cat Walk DDS-70UL

1/16oz Drop shot.
I caught 8 fish in a short time.
The worm didn’t get damaged, I think I can use it again.

I caught more than 100 fish with the rod “Cat Walk”!!!
It increases the chances of getting a good hook set
and landing the fish.
It is a reliable rod!!!

Field report / Casting ORENTA 70 around standing timber

 

Angler : Geecrack field tester Mr. Ito
Place : Kochi prefecture in Japan
Lure : ORENTA 70 / TUMBLE HEAD
Rod : DD GALAXXY GXY-C67MH Camel Clutch / DoubleDutch DD-72MH Spanky
Line : Nylon 14lb / Fluoro 20lb

Every time I go fishing, it rains.
It was rainy again but ORENTA70 produced good results!!
The chances of snagging a vibration lure are greater around standing timber, but I used ORENTA 70 for fishing in areas close to standing timber.
ORENTA 70 was very effective for catching largemouth bass that were suspended in standing timber.
I had chances of getting suspended largemouth bass to hit.
And it greatly appealed to largemouth bass and it began chasing the bait and took it.

Cherry rigged G-CRAWLER and TUMBLE HEAD3/8oz + MOONCURLY 4 inch were effective in the bedrock area
with standing timber.
I caught nice fish!!!
