■ Kumamoto / Mr.Jerremy ( Kumamoto,Japan )
The sea is calm today and the biggest chance would be while it is still dark or dusk, so head down to the rocks at 5am. As soon as I get to the point, I rig up my Hammer-Head prototype lure (Sharapoa) and start checking the surface. I have been to this location many times and have a fair understanding of where the fish are most likely to be. As I cast to one of the likely places near a submerged rocks twitching the lure on the surface enacting bait fish, the Blackfin emerged out of the water attacking the “Sharapoa” lure with a huge “Splash”. As it was full-moon, I was able to see the whole drama and giving the fish a second or two, I hook it up!! Although I previously said a submerged rock, most of the section was out of the water and honestly I was a little worried. I hold the rod tip up high to give it as much angle as possible to avoid the rocks, while the fish furiously fights with an aerobatic show.
I reel in at this moment to avoid the rocks and managed to land it. Although it was a small fish, I believe it demonstrates the future possibilities of the lure.
