Kyushu is the 3rd largest island of Japan. Lake Biwa fishing guide Yuho Ito went there for video shooting for Geecrack Channel.Mr. Shibata(Geecrack field tester in Kyushu.) joined him at the airport,and they went reservoir fishing.
They used G-Crawler, Bellows Gill 2.8″ and Portio. Bellows Gill 2.8 paired with Bredy was the most effective on the day. It really attracted bass to strike!
[Day 2] Yuho and Mr. Shibata targeted bigger bass on the second day.Yuho caught big bass on his first cast of the day(Bellows Gill3.8 / No sinker style)!!After that, he chose Bellows Gill 5.8 / Running sinker rig, and cast it two or three times. Good sized bass was caught!!Bellows Gill 5.8 / Running sinker rig worked really well and Bellows Gill paired with Bredy was also effective on the second day.
We field tested lures with Lake Biwa fishing guide Yama P(Norihito Yamashita) on the water of Lake Biwa. We’ve been developing a big crankbait “AVANTI MAGNUM DMR”. We field tested it and checked its diving depth, swimming action and etc.
Also we tested the Joint Bait which we’ve designed and developed with Yama P. We’ve been testing it since last year and it is almost into the final stage, We’ll keep filed testing it and if it needs some further improvements, we’ll improve and tweak the performance.
After the on-the-river fishing instruction, I remained for fishing practice.Though YAHMANSTICK 8 / No sinker style was really effective and I had 3 bites, I couldn’t catch a single fish.So, I got up early the next morning and went to Oe river for fishing.I was totally up for it on the day.I tried 3 likely bass holding areas but I didn’t get any bites.It was early morning but the river had high fishing pressure from many anglers. I found an area where YAHMAN STICK pattern would work well Finally I was able to catch nice bass.
Ishiguro Fishing Tackle Store staff experienced our products on the water of Gosan river and Oe river.They received an on-the-river fishing instruction from our field testers, Mr. Kuroda and Mr. Oya.They learned what type of Geecrack lures and fishing techniques work best depending on the conditions and the mood of the fish.
Lure : RIVIVAL SHAD 4 / AR RIG SPIRON 2.8 / Nail rig
Targeted break lines.I chose RIVIVAL SHAD and cast it.Bottom bumping generated a strike.Afterwards, I found a school of bluegill hiding in the underwater structure.Cast SPIRON 2.8 into it quickly.Nice bass was easily caught!!
