Hi Totos,

This is my first report for Slow Pitch Jigging from Israel.
My name is Itsik Bar Siman Tov; I am a Friend of Samuel.

Thanks to Samuel, I discover this site and starting from this moment, I am in love.

Last Friday I go to fish, I met Samuel before going to sea and he gave me a new Seafloor Control Rector 180g.

I go to my first Wreck of the day on 30m deep water, start to play with Slow-pitch, Long Fall Jerks…
I got a phone call from other angler, when I start taking with him he hear me Hook my first Fish on my New Rod.
It was so excited; the first fish to catch on my new rod is White Grouper it is a gift from the sea.

Have fun with the Movie:



I remember my first fish on slow pitch very well too. It was a 2kg amberjack.

You shared that whole moment with your friend on the phone. I don’t know but it seems that fish hit you sometimes when you are not expecting at all. It’s like one of those times when you release your tension after a couple of rounds with fully charged spirit.
Maybe it’s an energy thing. Focus can bring contacts, but charge can scare them away, it seems.

Anyway, congratulations Itsik!
