The first slow pitch catch in Malaysia


We have a report from Juzz in Malaysia.


Hi Totos,
I am very glad received your reply.

Yup I agree with you, It was a tough jigging for a beginner with poor set up of slow pitch. I was jigging in the ship with sea anchored. The current at that time not that strong. And usually we are fishing in shallow in between 40-60 meter depth. Thats why I am only using jig lure between 80-120gm. On my first attempt I did the slow pitch, slow punchy pitch and occasionally with long fall jerk but fail to get any contact. On 2nd attempt, after the jig landed on the bottom I did 3 spin fast retrieves and followed by a long fall jerk, the moment I doung the next slow pitch jerk, I realize something caught on my hook. Like you said it a very typical presentation. Here I attached the photo of me and the fish that I caught with slow pitch jigging technique.


Good catch, Juzz! Yes, 3 fast lifts and the following falls. A lot of fish find it irresistible! But I can see you trying different actions purposefully. That is very good to see. Let’s see how you’ll do with Slow Jerker 603-3 you just got. Keep exploring!

    Hi Totos,
    I already received the Slow Jerker 603-3 rod in safe and sound.
    Thank you for the arrangement and your encouragement on this post.
    I can’t wait to test the rod on my next fishing trip.
    Will give you feedback then.
    Wish me luck.

      Good luck to you Juzz!
      Keep exploring and refine your tuning!
      Sato Sensei says 90% of your success comes from the preparation. But the preparation has to be based NOT on what you’ve heard, BUT on what you sensed in the field and how you reflect back on your failures.
      Looking forward to your future reports.

    Hi Totos.
    Recent fishing trip i manage to test the Slow Jerker 603-3.Depth of sea around 60-70m.The current was moderate.The wave was quite choppy at night.The Slow Jerker rod was performed very well.I can use any variety of jig weight,even with 200gm jig weight with no problem.I can the situation is quite tough but i can still performed the slow pitch with no hassle.It is very worth it to invest in this expensive rod.It proven with variety fish that i catch with this Slow Jerker rod.I manage to catch a lot of Baracuda,2 skipjack tuna and a 3kg Caranx Sexfasciatus.I will email some of the photos to share with you.Thank you Totos for your guidance.
