Answering one of the requests of our readers.
Is smaller jig better???
There are seasons when fish chase for specific targets only. Like when there are so many tiny new-born bait fish hanging out and fish chase only small baits. Or maybe there are times when fish prefer to chase crustaceans only.
Except these times when fish have specific preferences, we believe that the jig size does not really matter for most fish.
But when we move to shallower, we tend to switch to smaller jigs. Why?
Because in the shallower waters, the water resistance will be less. That means that the rod action moves the jig more and that the jig tends to fall faster. We change to smaller jig when we don't want the jig to move so fast.
Maybe we want the jig to move faster, and we want to stay with heavy jig that we use in the deep. Maybe you are under a lot of water resistance and you want to remain heavy.
The point is, the jig movement is the main bite factor. The rod power to jig weight match in relation with water resistance primarily determines the action tone. I pay more attention to that than to the size or the color.
Slow pitch jigging at 200m deep. From Australia.

Shimano will not produce Ocea Jigger Limited any longer.
We've heard this from inside Shimano. It's not an official announcement. But it's been a while since the last time Shimano supplied OJ Limited to the market, and it seems they won't again.
Shimano does not have OJ1500 Limited in stock any more. I don't see any stock in online shops either. We have confirmed that some local shops here in Okinawa still have just a few OJ1500HG Limited, righthands and lefthands, but that is all that's left.
I still see many stock left for OJ3000 Limited. But if you are thinking about getting OJ1500 Limited, HURRY!!!
Send me your order by emails only. I will work with each of you in order of the arrival of your order. Please understand I can't guarantee that I can fill every order. Waste no time.

Chris O'neil New Zealands Shimano JDM program has put quite a few of these reels in to New Zealand tackle stores. Very sad, they are no longer being produced a very solid reel!

I'm so happy when my sharing helps people enjoy fishing and cooking more. This message just came in.
I want to thank you for broadening our fishing knowledge! Everything you write is so true, I can see everything in the field!
Slow pitch jigging is extremely effective, offering some beautiful experiences... Beautiful snappers up to 5 kg come easily to surface, by the way you describe, that's not pumping the rod. Every trick you reveal through your videos works just fine in our waters too, eg the change of pace..
And ike-jime has helped me appreciate more my honored opponents, and offer me the most delicious fish I've ever eaten!
Thank you very much for teaching us!
John from Greece!
HELLO FROM GREECE-THESSALONIKI!!!!

Recently I realized that I haven't posted my profile or my contact information. How would I have done this without it? Everyone should have been nuts to trust me!
I'm kidding. I really appreciate the trust you have given me guys.
How far off the bottom do you play?
This is a very critical question. I mean, this really makes a big difference on how productive you are. You may be fishing for the same amount of time as someone next to you. But if you are moving your jig where there’s no fish, the contact rate will be so much different. If someone always catches more fish than others, he’s probably spending more time in where the fish is.

Japanese Angler's Secrets The third dish is a very popular fish cooking in Japan. Nitsuke. I would call it Teri-boil in English. It's half boil and half steam cooking to make the fish absorb the teri sauce which it's cooked in. Will post the recipe.
