RTX vs. Monster Perch
Mads Grosell is a great allround fisherman, who has a real knack for catching big predatory fish. He usually spends considerable amounts of time fishing for perch during winter, and this year isn't different.

During his latest fishing trip to one of his favourite perch venues in Denmark, Mads gave his Okuma RTX quite an excersise. He hooked an landed a stringer of impressive perch on a Savage Gear 3D Bleak lure, and the biggest one was a staggering 50cm and 2,1 kilos.

Spanish Winter Pike
It is winter all over Europe, but in Spain the temperatures have remained fairly mild, and as a result, the pike fishing has been quite good.

Guillermo Carmona has been out targeting pike on a number of occasions, and he has used the 3D Trout Rattle Shad and 30cm 3D Real Eel to induce the takes. The results have been great with a stringer of lovely fish landed and released, and while none of the fish have been veritable monsters, they have been decent sized ones with great appetite.

Happy New Year!
It takes some Savage attitude to go out when it`s dark, freezing cold, windy - and snowing on top of everything!
But when your gut tells you to go - you should go! Also there is something very peaceful and rewarding in dealing with extreme elements in your fishing.

Here's the latest from Dalien Vignjevic, who challenged the harsh Croatian winter conditions the other day.

"This New Year`s zander struck an 11cm 4Play Pro shad in the Fluo yellow white-colour rigged on a 20 gram jig head right on the fall in between two reel cranks of the Okuma Trio 55 reel.

It is the most common jigging technique used here in Croatia.
The 4play Shad is such a great jigging bait because the jointed tail will kick and rock even on the slowest fall rates. It is a 100% confidence zander lure for me!"

Going Deep for Pike
In the winter time, when the fish go for deeper hideouts you simply cannot beat jigs. The Savage Gear Cannibal Shads are as good as a soft plastic shad can get. Here is Kristian Wolmut from Slovenia with yet another nice pike caught on his favorite 12,5 Cannibal shad rigged on an 8 gram jig head presented slowly over the bottom...

Baitcasting for Pike
German predator expert, Christian Wieneke, who writes for some of Germany's biggest fishing magazines, has been out fishing with our Okuma Komodo Baitcaster reels and some of Savage Gear's 3D Line-Thru Trout. The results have been staggering, and Christian has caught and released a stringer of beautiful brackish pike that have completely inhaled the lure.

The trick has been to slowly fish the lure along reeds and drop offs.

One test cast was enough
Here's yet another report from Plauersee and Fred Kotowski.

"Here is my pike from the weekend. This lady measured 115cm and it hit a 16cm Herring Shad in the Brown Burbout colour. I actually just wanted to show the guest how the bait behaved and worked in the water. We were in the middle of hunting a school of perch in about 20 meters of water. The impact came just below the boat. I love this bait!"

The gear used was the following:
Rod: Savage Gear 20-60gr Bushwhacker.
Reel: Okuma Trio 4000
Line: Savage Gear Finesse 8HD
