Daisuke wins FGB×MONOPOOLMTM CUP2020 with Do-Live Beaver 3.5

FGB×MONOPOOLMTM CUP2020 was held on 6th December at Inbanuma in Chiba Pref. O.S.P pro staff wins using Do-Live Beaver 3.5

His comment

Fishing garage black and I fished FGB×MTM Cup hosted by MONOPOOL MTM.

51 anglers fished on that day.

The day’s water temperature in the morning got down to 8 ℃ influenced by the cold rain of previous day and the lowest temperature of this year.

It was a toughest condition for shallow lake but I got precious bite using 6g texas rigged Do-Live Beaver 3.5(ebi-miso black) into the withered grass when water temperature gets high a little.

As expected the tournament was very tough. The anglers that brought fish on that day were 3 and fish were also three. But I was lucky to win with 1 fish 1260g

A lot of people fished this time but we made firm consideration for Corona virus like simple ceremony and meeting That is why we can enjoy the tournament.. So I would like to appreciate the host of this event.

Developing staff of O.S.P Hashimoto section wins year end tournament

Developing staff of O.S.P Hashimoto section wins year end tournament of Typhoon Marina on 6th December with 3 fish 4430g using Varuna spec Ⅱ and Asura Ⅱsp. He caught 6 fish total more than 8kg including the practice of previous day.

Every year- end I am excited with Typhoon Marina tournament because winner’s prize is free boat parking for next year. But the weather of Chiba and Ibaraki pref. on the previous day was rainy. And it was very cold with hard north wind. Nevertheless the water temperature was unexpectedly high and I got many bites from morning. I gave 2 jerks and 1 pose to fixed weight Varuna Spec Ⅱ(black and gold orange belly) around structure of 1 meter depth. I sensed different feeling like something touching at every cast. Then I got a bite right after that and caught 1kg class fish.

There seemed to be lot of fish in the water because I got many bites of bass and other fish too. I even hooked mullet on the body. After that my partner got a big bite with High Cut SP (cinnamon pearl shad) in spite of he was annoyed by short bite. That fish weighed over 1700g!

I did not think jerk bait pattern but I changed my plan and I started to check jerk bait area. So I went to the wave-dissipating block along east coast where north wind was blowing. There I caught many fish with Varuna in January several years ago. I convinced I can catch fish because the water was a little stain and I hooked salangidae when I jerked. I chose weight transfer Varuna SP(crown) in the wind and I caught 1kg fish.

Mt partner missed fish with Varuna SP(chart back shiner). Again he missed at windy side rock area after that. We got 5 bites at 3 spot and caught 3 fish total about 4 kg. So the practice was very hot in spite of cold condition.

The tournament had 32 participants and they all wore masks. Our flight was 4th so we headed directly the spot. I caught 1400g by second cast with Varuna Spec Ⅱ-SF(crown).

Right after that I missed bigger one but I caught over 1600g with the same bait.

When the low light time was over and the clear sky was visible, I entered the silence time and got a bad feeling. We fished 3 area 2 times with Varuna, Duruga, High Cut but got no bite for 5 hours. We needed to size down the bait because of clear sky and pressure and the main forage was salangidae. But if we get the bite, the bass is big and fthe fight was very strong, so light line was dangerous. Then I chose 9cm AsuraⅡ-SP(pink lady)because I can use 12lb fluorocarbon line and it has small silhouette. That is my confident bait that I made utmost effort to renew mold last year. I went to the spot where we fished in the morning three times and caught 1400g fish by tempting with soft jerk just 10 minutes before the finishing time. So we made limit with jerk bait only.

Total weight was 3 fish 4430g and we won the game. That is my record of Kasumigaura.

Jerk bait pattern begins from December every year. I t seems the season has started.

O.S.P New Item Information, Dec-2020



SCRUM : Only for Neko Rig
The O.S.P HOOK SCRUM is a hook exclusively designed for neko-rig under snaggy cover to bring out 100% of the worm’s performance. By burying the hook point in the worm to improve snagless performance and holding the worm between the V-arms, the worm does not easily move even in rough handling. In addition, the underwater posture is also corrected so that the hook point faces upward, and hooking is firmly performed on the upper jaw. Even when the lure is hanging through the cover, the stable posture reduces the transmission loss of the rod action and brings out the performance of the worm to the utmost limit. Assuming the use under heavy cover, a domestic hook is adopted because it is hard to stretch even by big bass when you use PE line with an MH class rod. The O.S.P HOOK SCRUM takes the cover neko-rig strategy to the next level.

ASURA II-F (JDC new 5 colors)

BLITZ EX-DR (JDC new 2 colors)

Yoichi Hashimoto came in 2nd at ABU Cup of JB Kasumigaura series

O.S.P pro staff Yoichi Hashimoto got second prize at ABU Cup of JB Kasumigaura series held on Oct 4th using Blade Jig Eco 3/8 and Do-Live Stick 4.5.

Here is the report written by him.

I fished Lake Kasumigaura for about a month before the tournament and got some fish , but I was not able to find reliable pattern. Bad water was diminishing from a week ago. and I sensed that fast moving lure was becoming effective because I caught good bass with High Pitcher 3/8oz the previous day.

I start my fishing with Eco High Pitcher only because using many lures will bring me nowhere at such condition. I headed for the 1 meter deep rock area where I caught bass the day before.

I searched for the stretch one time but it was not easy in deadly calm condition. So I switched to Blade Jig 3/8 ECO (black) which has transparent blade to be made for bass that hate metallic glitter.

Then I fished the same stretch and got bite immediately and 1700g good bass came out.

But I did not get bite after that so I changed area and restart fishing but got no bite.

I switched to aim at bush because the weather was getting brighter. And I caught valuable 600g fish with Do-Live Stick 4.5(dark cinnamon, blue &pepper of glide away setting.

Flexibility is really important in fishing!

I went around several bush but got no fish so I used Blade Jig again at the rock area and got 600g fish. Time was 10 o’clock then.
I tried to catch more fish and increase my weight but the time was up.
I thought I would be barely among top 5 but my score was 2946g that was more than I expected which made me runner up.
I am satisfied because I got second prize with fast moving lure in this season.

Kenichoro Honda became the A.O.Y. of the WMC(Weekday Megro Cup)

O.S.P pro staff Kenichiro Honda finished 3rd at the final of WMC(Weekday Megro Cup)

held by Gold House Megro in Lake Hibara with 2360g using 03 Hunts 11g & 14g + Do-Live Beaver 3.5 and this made him the A.O.Y. of the tournament.

This is his comment
Football jig is a light rig for me at Lake Hibara which means the strongest bite creator. and the most confident bait.
Shooting football jig using the power of Do-Live Beaver is the strongest method.
Dark color is effective in deep water because the silhouette is clear.
