QOOU/OX@@Chooja, Korea @@KOZO@OKUBO

I went to Chooja again this year.

The previous trip to Chooja a month ago in Aug,
we were betrayed by the Kingfish which were suppose to be active on the top-water lures.

The water temperature was over 30, actually near 31 and 32 degrees which is unbelievable.
The Kingfish could not be seen on the surface and probably due to the lower water temperatures in deeper waters,
they seemed to be more active below. In these conditions,
I managed to pull out 2 Tuna which happened to be feeding on the surface.

Baby Blue-Fin Tuna.
In addition, this lure was developed to catch Tunas.
The first catch of the
gChopper 69h prototype lure was this Tuna!
This was one of the first Tunafs to be caught in Korea,
and it was the talk of town throughout the cyberspace community in Korea
.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I was able to catch another one with the next feeding frenzy.
gChopper69h has plenty of potential.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Mr. Yamada from JST hooked up a nice fish with the A-Cup.
It was a Cobia. This was also the first one in Korea.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Casting the A-Cup in the feeding frenzy, I caught 3 bonitofs in a row.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
At the very end, we spotted fish feeding on the surface and I managed to cast accurately in the area.
It was a prized fish as this was the mail target. Caught on Sharapoa.

The above were the fish caught on Top-water lures during the trip in August.




@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
So, lets see how the conditions changed in Chooja after a 1 month interval.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
When the current started to move, a massive Nabura surfaced.
The captain casted immediately and hooked up.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
It was an 80cm yellow-tail.
Caught on the Forb A-Cup (Hair-tail color 35).

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
This Nabura was the long awaited Nabura which was feeding on the baby Hair-Tails (approx 40cm).
As soon as this is the set pattern, the A-Cup Hair-Tail color is super strong.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Approx 60~70 Kingfish and 8~10kg class Yellow-tails were fighting over 1 lure!!

@@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I also hooked up on my next cast with the Sharapoa.
As soon as we cast poppers, a huge school of fish surface and attack the lure.
These conditions continued for some time!!


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
It is an exciting game as the fish run furiously in the strong currents.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Caught on the gChopper69h prototype.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
As soon as we catch one, we get the boat to go up the current, and start casting again.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Then we get immediate results.
I hardly had time to take photos, so this is only a hand full of photos.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Unfortunately, the lure and the head of the fish was cut out of the picture,
but both fish were caught on the gA-Cup Hair-tail color.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
We head up current again. Another fish!! It seems big!

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
It was a Yellow-Tail caught on the gChopper69h prototype.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Another double catch with the gA-Cup Hair-Tail color.

@@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Considering these conditions, I thought that we would be able to do anything,
so I actually aimed for a double catch!
Caught on the gChopper69h.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The wind picked up, so I used the A-Cup long-cast version (prototype).


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I tried casting the gChopper69h  Hair-Tail color, and as expected, I got results from the first cast.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Next was a double catch by Smiths tester and my single catch. Triple catch???

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The next day, the sea had changed considerably, and the action was very quiet in the morning.
This is what fishing is all about.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The last chance in the afternoon.
I managed to land a 10kg over Kingfish with the A-Cup.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I also hooked up a big one with my next cast.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Size up! Great size Kingfish.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I caught another good size kingfish on the gChopper69h prototype.



@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
Although it was a smaller one, double catch!!


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
I added another to the list at the ending! Caught on the gChopper69h prototype.
