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!"

Trigger-Happy Fishing in Costa Rica
Here's an update from Ot Nebot Santos, our Spanish consultant.

"I'm in Costa Rica - on the Caribean side. I'm looking for spots for fishing from the coast, and this is proving more difficult than I thought. My first fish in this place was this beautiful Triggerfish that I caught on my Okuma Octana rod, Okuma Helios reel and the Savage Gear Seeker Jig! Funny tackle!"

Pike Screamer
Our Belgian consultant, Roy Vanstreels knows how to lure the big fish - even when the conditions are tough. Here's the latest from the young predator ace:

"I had a great weekend in the big office with some hefty pike. Here's a 115cm and 10kilo+ pike that I was super-excited to catch! It hit a 25cm Herring and it was caught on my Savage Gear Custom Predator rod and my beloved Okuma Citrix widebody".

Baitcasting for pike
Our Belgian consultant, Roy Vanstreels, have been busy lately boat-fishing for big pike. He was out fishing a big lake last week, and here he enjoyed some hectic pike fishing. All the fish he caught hit a 30cm Savage Gear Line Thru Trout using Savage Gear Custom Predator rod 8'6 170gr and our Okuma Citrix low profile baitcaster reel.

The Citrix is a great reel for chucking big and weighty lures such as the Line Thru Trout, and it is extremely easy to use.

Thanks for sending in the picture, Roy.

Crank-baiting for Zander
"A true classic in the SG program and one of my favorite crankbaits is the diving prey 90. Superb for trolling and casting on the big rivers where I like to fish. At a depth between 3,5 and 5 meter you can expect any type of predator when fishing with this little noisy fella. This zander had no mercy for the diving prey 90 in lemon back color! Gear used: MPP spin and twitch 20gr, Okuma Trio white 30 and Finezze HD4 0.10. "
