BF 140 prototype lure


Hiramasa 22.5kg on 8ft prototype rod + KLL 011A

For some reason, fish chased only this lure while others used Bluefish and γ(Gamma) at this time of the day.


Hiramasa 16.75kg on 8ft prototype rod + KLL 011A


Hiramasa 10.2kg on 8ft prototype rod + KLL 011A


Hiramasa 14kg on 8ft prototype rod + KLL 011A

It was so obvious that fish chased only this lure rather than others at this time of the day in this location.


Hiramasa 12kg on 8ft prototype rod + KLL 011A

We encountered same situation also in GT fishing before and we are confident that fishing can be improved further by switching lures to meet condition at the time of day and location.


Both on Maihime


BF 100


8ft prototype rod + KLL 011A

This was the last fish this lure caught before it changed action due to soaking water.....
