Angler : Mr. Nagao
Lure : Imo-ripper 40 / Leaf Shrimp 2.8(My original rig)
Place : Nagoya port / Japan
Fishing for marbled rockfish.
Cast GIGA AJI JIG HEAD 0.7g + Imo-ripper 40(Green Pumpkin)
and pumped my rod to move the bait up and down near the bottom of water.
20 minutes after I started fishing, I caught my first marbled rockfish of the day.
After that I didn’t get a single bite.
I moved to another fishing point and cast leaf Shrimp2.8(MAD-SHRIMP).
I used the same fishing method as I used for my first catch.
It didn’t work well first, but I thought I could manage to catch fish
because fish took the bait three times and the tidal bottom current was good and the water was moving.
My second cast … I got snagged.
The tidal bottom current was quite fast.
To avoid snagging, I cast GIGA AJI JIG HEAD 0.3g + Imo-ripper 40(Ghost Gill) .
Then I got plenty of bites!!!
The biggest marbled fish I caught on the day was 22 cm in length.
I also cast Leaf Shrimp(Water melon) / My original rig and caught some more fish.
I caught 12 more fish in 1 hour.
If I didn’t stop fishing, I might catch nearly 30 fish.
Imo-ripper and Leaf Shrimp are effective for fishing largemouth bass and have produced great results.
They are really effective for rockfish fishing as well.
Great weapons for both bass fishing and salt water fishig.
