Adapt to a different style.

It's time to throw away your style of fishing en route for a new one. I myself am a plastic guy, I love fishing slow, using plastic craws, hog style baits, and finesse style wacky rigging. But when the fish are biting other things, it's time to adapt to a different style.
Although I own a handful of hard baits, I normally don't fish them as much as I should. I probably should though! The past outings I've been sticking to shallow cranks, mainly flatside cranks such as the Jackall Bling 55, and the Jackall MC/60 SR. Turns out it was a good choice as even my friend was able to catch one on a crank the other day. This is by far my biggest fish of the year, and my biggest fish on a hard bait. I think I'll be cranking a bit more often!

My gear for today..
A few Jackall Poison Heritage Rods paired with Shimano Reels, with my new Jackall Tournament Cap (must be a lucky cap).
5lb 1oz Crankbait fish
Rod: Jackall Poison Heritage HC-610SR "Master Stroke"
Reel: Shimano Core 100Mg
Lure: Jackall MC/60 SR "Table Rock Shad"

  1. I love your passion for fishing and I too am a fan of Japanese fishing techniques, particularly the "FlickShake" technique. Bass Pro Shop's version called the Flick-n-shake in the Plum color, 4.8" size is killing it here in Arizona.

  2. @ddavidroberts, Yeah I heard about the BPS version of the Jackall Flick shake. Judging by the pictures it looks strikingly similar and it's also cheaper! I have to try them out.

  3. Hey I noticed you have a Jackall Tournament cap.
    Could you tell me where you got that?
    I've been looking to buy one of those.


  4. Yusuke, I got it on eBay a few weeks ago. Already sold out though. I wanted to buy the Sight Magic one too

    Yeah I emailed jackall usa here and they told me that these are Japan-only items.

    So I emailed the headquarter at Jackall in Japan.
    They told me that Mr. Terada of logistic department will contact me once he figures out a way to ship the items oversea to cali. If they say they can do that would you like me to order the Sight Magic for you?

    You can pay me later... I have paypal or you can pay me locally since I live in Long Beach...

  6. I'm fine with the one I have. So you live in LB? let's fish together man! Did you go to Bass-a-Thon? I might go back again on Sunday
