WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS FFPS challenger 2017 !

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS FFPS challenger 2017 !

We are so happy to have this title this year with my partner Mayeul Chevalier. 

This year was something for me….   Some competition was very hard. Some competition was successful. 
and This Final competition at Saint Etienne Cantales lake was every thing was well organized and strategy of fishing was just perfect. Of course, for that, We had big help of our Friends, all the Sponsors and family’s support. 
 
Day1: We fished Perch & Sandre until mid day. But, We only had 1 small Keeper Perch. The other’s was way too small. 
In the afternoon. We saw some nice Pike eco in our Humminbird fish fish finder. So, I thought, maybe Pike are active. 
I stert casting big Jerkbait lure with Prorex XR PXX662XXHFBAF with Zillion-HD to steep shore side (3m~14m steep) with rock.   And Jerk and Jerk….  I was able to catch 2 nice keeper size Pike in the afternoon.  So, We finished 2nd position in Day1. 
 
Day2, Our strategy was 100% Pike this day. But, Before that, We went back to he spot where we had good bite of Sandre in day 1. 10min of fishing. Mayeul had nice 58cm Sandre with TN AGS Vertical with Prorex XR 2500RA.  After this Sandre. The Sun is getting out. So, We move to Pike fishing.  We run our Bass boat to where similar structure and topography.  and Jerk and Jerk and Jerk….   in the mid day I was able to catch 67 keeper Pike.  Then move to upper side of Lake where we never been fished in day1.  It the upper side of lake, we looked for same kind of structure and topography.  1h30 before the end. I had huge attack of my Jerkbait.  we landed this big Keeper Pike on boat. It was 98cm !   It was Kicker size ! Me and Mayeul was so happy to have this fish.   With this fish we had some kind of confidence of podium title.  But, We never thought we will be Champion of FFPS Challenger 2017. 
 
Thank you so much for all our friends, all our Sponsors (Daiwa, Suzuki, Bassboat Center, Seasons, Navicom, Creation IMG,  HPA, Onebite Onefishe, Costa,  Club Dragons de Choisy) and our family.  With out you. It would never happen to receive this title.   
 
We are 100% satisfied this year 2017.

WIN ! FFPS north division challenger Saturday 1st of July at Seine river

 

We won the FFPS north division challenger Saturday 1st of July at Seine river. 

 
With my new competition partner Mayeul Chevalier.  We have 25 years of age difference. 
Just like father & son.  I wish is only one thing !  I want educate him as next generation strong zen attitude Fisher. 
That is my goal. 
 
Last week competition was very difficult.  The fishing zone was change in last mins by Organizer.  So, It was totally new zone for us. 
Since water is still not enough.  The river current is very very slow… Water temp of 22c. 
It was very difficult competition. 
 
Understanding this actual situation, my goal of this competition was seeking for Pike. That was the only way, we could be on podium. 
So, I was fishing only big bait lures. Big Soft shad, Big, Hard lure, Big Spinnerbait, etc….  
Using my Fish finder, I was not able to see any individual nice size fish. (except some Silure) 
So, I was sure Pike is hidden in weeds vegetation.   and my guess was correct ! 
 
The winning lure which was Daiwa Prorex CLASSIC SHAD DF 25cm armed with assist 1/0 size hook on top of back body.  
So, my lure will not pick up weeds or leaves of under water vegetation.  and still can swim very close to under water vegetation. (if I was fishing very deepwater situation, I would always put my assist hook on berry of lure)
 
Thanks to this technique.  we are able to fish 1 Pike and 1 Silure form shallow vegetation area (1m deep).  Of course ! , Mayeul’s net landing was perfect too !  
 
The tackle I was casting my Prorex CLASSIC SHAD DF 25cm was,  Rod > PROREX XR PXX762XHFBAF, Reel > Zillion Type HD, Line > Saltiga 12 braid 0.18mm, Jig Head > D’jig Head 15g 8/0, Assist hook > Home made.
 
Thank you very very much for all your support for our team.  
 
We will continue for next competition !!!

Swimming shad, Shad with blade, Spinnerbait, Chutterbait, Crunkbait, Hard big bait, Minnow, Jerkbait, Swimmingjig.

Ouverture Predator fishing 2017

Ouverture Predator fishing 2017. 
I went to a like near Rouen.
7:30 arrived at the lake. More than 50 float tubers, 30 boaters and many Street Anglers are already at the lake. It was amazing seen….    I have never seem such a so many Angler at one lake in France.  It was almost like a fishing party ! 
 
During the fishing.  I met so many People. and had nice meeting ! 
The weather was very hard to us.  Over cloud  and very strong wind….   water temp was 13c. 
 
I stared fishing with 250cm big bait lure. But, no bite no attack for 1h. So, Change to Daiwa SpinTail shad(12.5cm 40g ) Orange Chart. 
The water was very clear. But, It was so low light condition. So, I chose bright color lure.   But, Still no bite….  So, I custom change to Silver blade to gold color and bigger size blade. So, I will have more appeal flashing effect and bigger blade can be use more slowly at same depth.   My target depth was 4m deep water with underwater weed up to 1.5m.  I wanted pass my lure 2.5m as slow as possible.
With this pattern. I had 6 attack and 5 Pike in my boat.  It was good study of flashing effect !

FFPS challenger North devision 1st competition at Lake Moisson.

FFPS challenger North devision 1st competition at Lake Moisson.
We finished in 7th place with 2 Pikes.
It was cold & wet hard fishing day.  Water temp was 14c. Super clear water. I could see the 4m bottom….  That was crazy….

We had 2 Pike.  1st Pike was very beginning of the competition in the morning with over cloud situation with Prorex Classic Shad DF 12.5cm(Chart Pearl) with 7.5g TN D’jig SS round Jig head.  Since it was low light condition. I used bright color and very slow retrieve with aggressive swimming.

2nd pike was in the afternoon with Sun light condition. I was sure that Pike are hiding in the under water vegetation. So,I use Duck Fin Live Shad 15cm(Live Roach) with 15g TN D’jig SS round Jig head. So, I was fishing more deep zone of water and more natural swimming action shad.

The rod & reel, I was using was Daiwa Tatula 6101MHFB with Zillion 6.3:1 speed reel.

This Tatula 6ft10 rod is very good for Swimming Shad rig with long cast and very sensitive rod tip.  and Since It is very early spring season. So, I wanted fish slow. So, I choose 6.3:1 speed reel.

I was very satisfied this result as 1st competition of year with new teammate Mayeul Chevalier.

FFPS challenger 北リーグ 2017年第一戦が終わりました。 2匹のパイクを釣り結果総合7位でフィニッシュ。 新チームメイトとの初試合、とりあえずトップ10入りで嬉しい結果。

Prorex “PX762XHFB-AF”

I discovered this Prorex “PX762XHFB-AF” bait casting rod since release of Prorex series.

I just love it !  This rod can be use what I use most of my Pike fishing in France.  Such as Deps Huge Spinnerbait 30g, Gan Craft Jointed Claw178 56g, Daiwa Spintail Shad 40g, Biwaa Divinator 55g, etc…

This rod is not too fast and not so regular.  So, Very nice easy casting for mid heavy weight lure. and hooking is perfect !

Length of 7.6ft (2,29m) 2 pieces rod is excellent for super long cast and still does not feel so long.

I just love it !!!  Please try everyone !!!
