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

Shallow Pike
Spanish predator expert, Guillermo Carmonas, has been out targeting pike in some of the major reservoirs in Spain. He has fished with our Okuma baitcaster reels and a selection of Savage Gear Lures such as the 3D Real Eel, 3D Trout and 3D Herring. Using these softlures has allowed him to fish the shallows with great precision and the results have been great.

The above fish was caught on the 30cm 3D Real Eel on a steady but fairly slow retrieve.

More Croatian Pike Action
Here is another nice pike taken by our Croatian consultant, Dalien Vignjevic, on the 20,5 cm Rattle Trout. This lure flat out catches them, says Dalien.

Dalien once again used our Okuma Komodo Baitcaster reel in combination with a Savage Gear Big Pike rod for casting the big Trout lure and reeling in this lovely pike.

Urban pike fishing
Here is another lovely urban fishing pike from Ljubljana caught by Dalien using his Komodo with the big 300 gram Line Thru trout!

Dalien was on a recent visit to to the RD Barje pike event in Ljubljana. The day started with his seminar on jerkbaits and swimbaits for about 40 people who attended the event, followed by a day of fishing on the Ljubljanica river.

The seminar points could not be underscored better as this Ljubljanica beauty struck the 30 cm Line Thru trout. This was one of the two biggest fish of the event! Great job!

Hard at Work with the Hard Eel
Our Croatian consultant, Dalien Vignjevic, has just sent us this great picture:

"The autumn atmosphere in this one is just right! Hard Eels will be great to fish over the remains of the weedbeds and between lillypads stems in the coming weeks. I use the Okuma wide body reels like the Komodo or Citrix, fish them on a straight retrieve and I have had lots of fun. For some reason, the pike always hit the body - and they won't let go!"
