Fishing Report


The Highschool Angler on the Roll

Here is Luke in Australia.  He is pounding heavy on the aussie fish grounds! What a great job!  I’m so glad that you have continued to explore fishing at such excellence. Regarding some questions in your report, When you choose a slow pitch rod, we don’t care about the target size.  In our point-down fighting style, we don’t lift with rod anyway.  And even with a little heavier rod, it’s still a slow pitch rod and it’s not really made for lighting the fish.  We think that the rod is good enough if it parries sudden impacts because the reel will do the job with the drag against the runs.  We primarily concern the jig weight and the action tone in choosing the rod model.  If you are concerned with the target size, I would get a bigger better reel to match with that light rod. There are so many slow pitch rods in the market now.  I can’t catch up.  The cheapest way is to find something you can get locally.  So ask me when you see something.  But don’t expect me to evaluate what’s not available in Japan.  It should be hard when you don’t have many reviews by slow pitch jiggers you know.  Maybe you should become a field tester of a rod maker or get a sponsorship! For micro jigging, 3000 Certate will be sufficient.  I bet the field is shallow?  Around 30m?  Any light jigging or eging rod …

Grouper catch and cook in Jordan

Here is Mark in Amman, Jordan, reporting his catch with micro jigging and the cooking.   This is the first message he sent me. So I replied;   And here’s his second message a few days later.   That looks really good!  Congratulations. Who said you are a useless cook???   You did a beautiful job!   So aging has gone great in Pichitto wrap without drying out, huh?   Now you know how to do Ike-Jime, how to prepare aging, how Pichitto sheet works, and how to cook Chinese steamed fish!  That was a lot of lessons and you pulled it off nicely!  Way to go!
