Kitayama was 5th at BATNET 2017 first!


Toshimichi Kitayama was 5th at BATNET 2017 series first held on Oct.2nd at Lake Biwa.

He talked about the day

Oct.2nd I fished the first match of BATNET 2017. I focused on the north east of Lake Biwa where weeds are scattered like patch on 1.5-2m depth. I checked inside the weed and edge with Texas rig and short leader drop shot and on the weed and around weed I fished with weightless rigged “Do-Live Shad” and 3320g kicker fish attacked 4.5in violently. It helped me my 5th place prize.

Reel:Steez 100SH
Rod:Blacklabel +6101MHRB

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

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.

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 !
