Northern Rocking!!

2016.10.21
Hey y’all!

This past week I was fortunate enough to spend a few days in the Tohoku region of Japan. The Tohoku region is renound for having a record stock of rockfish.

This trip proved that hype to be true. I managed to catch decent numbers of fish each night , and also landed 3 fish that measured over my previous record.

Those 3 fish were taken on 3 different OSP softbaits!

1st fish measured at 37cm and was taken on an HP Shadtail 3.1″ rigged on a 1/16oz jighead which I used with a steady retrieve.

2nd fish measured at 37.5cm and was taken on an HP Shadtail 3.6″ which I rigged texas style, with a 3g head weight. I used a lift and tension fall presentation with this rig. The tension fall approach allowed my bait to stay in the strike zone longer and also allowed me to feel even the smallest of strikes.

3rd. Fish measured at 39cm and was taken on a DoLive Stick 3.5″ which I rigged in a back slide setting tipped with a 1/16oz. nail sinker. I used this rig to make technical approaches around and under docks.

Needless to say, but with a doubt, OSP softbaits have a bright future in both fresh and saltwater applications!

Can’t wait to try them next week in southern Japan!

Until next time, Great fishing!

The DoLive Shrimp has become the winning lure in Australia!!

The Gamakatsu Team Series grand final in Ballina was run and won. Lucky by Tony Moore and myself!!!!

We hit the water on the first day with out a pre-fish and noticed that the river was still running fresh, due to recent rain.

With this in mind we made the decision to fish the bottom of the river, to hopefully find some salty water. Our bag came very quickly fishing a combination of Cranka crabs and OSP DO-Live shrimp along rock walls.

Weighing a bag of 3.07kg we were in the lead!!!! Day 2 we started fishing with the same plan in mind and quickly had to change things up, the fish that were on the wall had moved due to the pressure of 70 anglers on the first day.

A change of tactics and a move to deeper water resulted in a flurry of big fish. Making long cast up current with a dolive shrimp rigged on an 1/8th proved deadly. Fishing in 8m of water feeling the bite was imperative. When fishing plastics I chose to use a edge 702-2 BSR it has a soft enough tip to keep small hooks!

in soft lips, and for crabbing a 701ISR, because of the sensitivity and bottom end power. Tony and I weighed 2.69kg that day which was enough to take the win. img_products_main_doliveshrimp

Perch fishing in Paris by Agogué Olivier

2016.09.22
September is usually a busy month with many birthdays, first day of school for kids and many other family stuff… therefore I have less time for fishing and I can only make tiny-sessions of 1 hour maximum during my lunch break or on my way back home after work.

I take advantage of it to go fishing unknown places et some of them are promising, specially on perches which are very difficult to locate at the moment. Indeed, Paris is full of baitfishs but perches are not near the shore hunting. I have to fish with long casts as they are in the middle in the river.

Nevertheless, the O.S.P softbaits always takes care to kink them, for my biggest happiness. Like this fish caught on a brand new spot thanks to my Dolive Stick 3.5 ” rigged on a 5gr Jig Head and livened up by small twitches in the current level with the bottom.

Whether it is at lunch time or at the end of the day, fishes are scattered and susceptible to be in all layers of water. Indeed, I caught fishes as well by fishing on the bottom that by fishing in middle-water and sometimes at the beginning of the descent of the bait.

w2 w3

When I manage to find a shoal of fishes, if I catch one or two, others get scared and don’t bite anymore event taking care of releasing the fishes severla meters away. The solutiopn was to use a Dunk 48 SP (color Real Perch) to irritate them and incite them to bite again.



The animation is rather simple, you need to vary ! Sometimes with slow retrieve, sometimes with middle speed retrieve with stops and tiny twitches.

They can’t resist long to an O.S.P bait !

Greetings!

Been a while since my last report, so let me first apologize before starting.

Sorry yall:).

Now with the formality out of the way, let me dive in to the good stuff!

Boy have i found paradise! Let me tell you. Until recently, I thought I needed to drive north 5hours To find some decent rockfish hunting grounds. I couldn’t have been more wrong! Just a short hours drive from tokyo , I found some of the most premeir grouper hunting grounds found in japan.

Not that there were any super monsters locked away there , but they are in there thick and ready to explode on a well placed texas rig!

I started the day using a 3゛DoLive craw on a #1/0 offset hook and weighted down with a 1oz bullet sinker and didn’t need to change my lure selection the whole day. Selection stayed simple because every grouper being caught were regergitating small crabs and shrimp! I don’t want to brag to much so i’m going to stop right here, but if your looking for some fun fishing close to tokyo, check out this guide service right here:http://mera-matsueimaru.com/

They will put you on the fish!

Until next time! Tight lines,

O.S.P pro staff Masaaki Endo won Tokyo Bay Boat Seabass tournament 3rd.

Tokyo Bay Boat Seabass tournament aka BST was held on 17th May, 2016. That was the third event of this year and O.S.P pro staff Masaaki Endo won with total length 262.5cm (5f).

IMG_9102

This is Endo’s comment.

It was a rough and gusty day almost 10m wind speed. I narrowed down the spot after practice but I headed for different spot to avoid fishing the same spot with other anglers.

And I decided to fish weed area and traced weed edge. Then caught 3 fish with Rudra. Then I moved to some spot near Futtsu. I got bite as I expected by retrieving Varuna at the edge of break line. There were a lot of sardine in this spot. That is why I used Varuna because it dives deep enough.

I used Rudra and Varuna properly. To search the spot I used Rudra and to let it dive deep I used Varuna.

IMG_9108

As for color, I selected natural color and new color coming this July. I fished with these colors but all I caught with new color “ Island Cruise Double Chart Conoshiro “ I really think that is a good color.

RUDRA MAESTRO ♪

2016.05.16
After spending the first half of the month chasing after monster rockfish, I switched up my tackle and heading out into Tokyo bay in search of some seabass and yellowtails!

yellowtail

This time of the year, the Seabass are just starting to feed up and return to their fighting weight after their long winter spawn. On this past trip out, I managed to find a few number of Seabass foraging on finger mullets and sardines. When the Seabass are munching on these two sources of food ,you can’t find a single lure better than O.S.P’s RUDRA 130S and VARUNA 110S! seabass2

I started off the day casting RUDRA 130S and scored a few nice Seabass! Unfortunately, the RUDRA bite died off rather quickly and that forced me to downsize to my second favorite lure, VARUNA 110S! (Due to the increased number of guides on Tokyo bay, we start off the day casting larger lures and finish the day on smaller sized ones.)

Within a few cast, I got the fish fired up again and just hammered them almost the whole day!

If you love seabass fishing as much as I do, you owe yourself a favor to score up a RUDRA and VARUNA! You won’t be sorry you did.

Until next time, Tight Lines!

SPRING HAS COME !! I got to fish with O.S.P CEO T.Namiki and also tape an original O.S.P YouTube video together!

2016.05.06
With spring finally here, it’s time to pack away those heavy winter blankets and get to fishing.

This past Saturday and Sunday was the annual 「LURE FESTA in SENDAI」fishing show!
(BTW: It was great to meet and greet so many OSP fans and enthusiastic anglers! )

While at the show, I met up with a local fishing charter service( EARNEST) and planned for a trip out with him yesterday.

Wasting no time, let’s get to the action! I don’t have much to say other than yesterday was damn awesome !

1

I got to fish with O.S.P CEO T.Namiki and also tape an original O.S.P YouTube video together! We were fishing for greenling using O.S.P’s fine line-up of soft baits.

I started off the action by catching a monster sized greenling on a 1/2oz jig head rigged with an HP SHADTAIL 3.1″ Man talk about fight! This guy was dodging the guides net for about 2minuets!

2

Shortly after landing that first fish it was all out madness! Both myself and T. Namiki just tore them up using a wide variety of lures( DoLive Craw 3″, HP SHADTAIL 3.1″&3.6″)Catching fish after fish until our arms were dead!

I don’t want to spoil the video, so please stay tuned to O.S.P’s website for its release!
