It was Mr. Hidaka who hooked on the first fish under cloudy conditions.
It was a nice proportioned GT caught on the Faube G-cup (cloudy black)

A mega tone super size GT attacked my lure at an ordinary point.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
After a 5 minute fight the fish was surfaced.
The incident actually happened while testing for the new Hammer-head prototype lure, 115g C-cup.
The hook size was Decoy GT special 6/0.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Yes!! Although we were not able to weigh the fish, it was a 164cm GT.
Regarding the length of a GT, my record had been 163cm, so I managed to renew my record by 1 cm.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I was so happy, so here is another angle.
The muscular body and the thickness was amazing, but most of all,
the base of the tail was as thick as my calf.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
To my surprise, captain Yu-chan also took a picture with me.
You can see how tough looking this 164cm GT is even when held by 2 (not so small) men.
The 164cm GT was only 4cm short of my self being 168cm.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
With the help of the captain, it was successfully released.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The first fish caught during the first test run being 164cm is an amazing start to a lure.
Hammer-head Forb C-cup.

The strength and potential of the Decoy GT special 6/0 hook was also proved.
Actually, when this fish surfaced, only 1 rear hook was hooked up.
I may be repeating my self, but was able to recognize the importance of accurate hooking up,
and total balance of the tackle to successfully land the fish.

It was raining non stop and was even cold.
It comes naturally to use the cloudy black color lure.
Faube G-cup GTSP 8/0~2

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Average size GT caught by Mr. Hidaka using I-cup short.
He continued to catch the same size GT with this I-cup short.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Another average size caught on my propotype C-cup.
Faube C-cup (prototype)GTSP 6/0~2

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Average size caught by Mr. Hidaka on the popping pencil (cloudy black).

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Mr. Chiba is also on fire. He hooked up a big looking one at a difficult location.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The GT that surfaced with the G-cup in the mouth, was a expected, super tough looking.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
A new record for Mr. Chiba. 133cm GT was successfully landed. Congratulations Mr. Chiba!

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Mr. Hidaka also with a GT approx. 20kg caught on G-cup (cloudy black)

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
This was also an average size.
Faube C-cup (prototype) GTSP 6/0 ~2

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
There are many Needle fish and pikes around in these waters so this color popping pencil cannot be forgotten.
Popping pencil GTSP 8/0~2

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Another big one I hooked up.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I did it again!! No other words describes it, but gMonsterh.
Another 160cm over fish! It was 162cm.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
162cm GT. I was able to catch 2 GTs which would have been most likely over 60kg in 1 fishing trip.
There is nothing that could beat this feeling.
These 2 GTs are only a stepping stone for an even bigger moster GT to be landed in the future.
