Night fishing for sea bass
21-03-2016
Yesterday night was like an LRF seabass party for our Turkish consultant, Savas Dursun. He tried the Savage Gear Mini Sandeels and got some beautiful and hard fighting fish.

"The Savage Gear LRF rod is the best among the ones that I've used so far", says Savas. "And the Okuma Inspira reel does an impeccable job at tiring out the fish".

Float Tube Fishing for Zander
14-03-2016
Here's a quick report from our Spanish predator ace, Ot Nebot Santos.

"Last Saturday morning is went for a float tube fishing session on a local lake looking for zanders, and I got a beautiful one - not too big, but it was my first time using the Savage Gear Soft Vibes lure!

In the afternoon I went for Black Bass and with the increasingly cold weather I got a powerful bass on the Savage Gear 3D Crayfish - that's my favourite bass lure!!! The spring is coming!!

All the fish were caught on my SG Bushwhacker Light 10-30g rod and my trusty Okuma Komodo reel!"

Zander Fishing
07-03-2016
The zander season is now over in Croatia, but it isn't in the rest of Europe - it is only just beginning.

Our consultant Dalien Vignjevic, who is one of Croatia's most experienced predator fishermen, has found out that zanders can readily be caught on a series of untraditional lures - such as Line-Thru Trout and Crazy Blade Jigs, as long as the presentation is very precise.

He fishes the lures very close to the bottom, and he makes sure that they move very unpredictably and erracticcaly with lots of small pauses and stops. This will inevitably make the zanders loose their temper and zoom in for the kill.

Enjoy!

Barbel on Lures
29-02-2016
Yesterday I got a big Barbel fishing the 13 cm Fat T tail minnow on a 12 gr jig head. It completely inhaled the lure - amazing!

Super slow presentation near the bottom fooled this fish into biting. I was suprized it could fit the largest chunky 13cm T tail, but it did. I believe it was because I used 9` 15-15gr RTX rod with medium fast action which allows the fish some give on the strike.

Cold water bass fishing means lipless cranks and suspending jerkbaits. Savage Gear offers great options for both of these lure types.

Fat Vibes is an extremely effective cold water bait great for covering water especially in grass lakes. Making contact with grass will trigger those reaction strikes. The shiver on the fall is amazing with this lure, so there is no way of retrieving this lure wrong. Steady, yo yo, ripping, stop and go... The bass will absolutely crush it!

On our recent trip my buddy and I managed to catch three fish on the 6,6cm Fat Vibes model. The Water temperature was 8 °C and they completely inhaled it on steady retrieve.

I fish this bait on a short baitcasting set up, because of sensitivity and fast reaction.

The Okuma trigger One Rod or SG Finezze rod paired with Komodo baitcaster works great!

Big Zander Techniques
15-02-2016
"The season is right for big zander, and on my first vertical trip Monster Slug delivered again. Upstream slow presentation with trolling motor really close to bottom got another massive strike and another beauty went in front of camera before getting back to the green depths of river Sava.

I used the Savage Gear Finezze 25 gr trigger rod and an Okuma Komodo reel for ultra precise presentation.

The entire February is in front of me so I hope I will connect with another big fish and reveal more details about this effective "big zander" technique..."

Floattubing for Pike
08-02-2016
This just in from Ot Nebot Santos:

"Yesterday, we went on a local lake looking for pike from our float tube. After a mere 10 minutes of fishing with the 12,5cm Savage Gear 3D Trout Rattle Shad, I had a big strike on the bottom. Immediately after I began battling a big fish with my Savage Geart BushLight 10-30g rod and Okuma Komodo reel. The fish turned out to be a real big mama".
