OSP Hardbaits

Post by Firstoutfisher » Thu Oct 21, 2021 5:18 pm

So, I picked up an OSP louder60 popper a couple weeks ago. Finally had a chance to go out and try it out. Man I am in love with this thing, the finish on it is amazing, it just feels quality. By far the easiest to work popper I've had. Went and looked at their colors and they are awesome now I want more. They also make it in a 50mm that I want to try for trout. :-k :laugh1:

Anyway, I was looking at their other hardbaits and now I want to try and sample a bunch of them. Any suggestions for which OSP baits are worth trying? Also, I noticed they are incredibly hard to find in stock anywhere. Including asia fishing portal and other japanese sites. What are good places to find OSP baits for sale?

They are my favorite lure company by a wide margin. The Blitz Max series is true greatness. The Bent Minnow is also wonderful. The Power Dunk 57SP is a real treasure on clear water smallmouth lakes. The Asura II series is nice, I love the PL07 color and it is so hard to find.

The asura II definitely on my radar as a small jerkbait. Don't even see the pl07 color on their website. What exactly is the power dunk? I know the blitz max is a squarebill and the bent minnow is some weird topwater/jerkbait hybrid.

I pretty much stick with OSP and Jackall these days, soft and hard. The Louder 70 is my go to popper. The Dai Buzzin is another awesome OSP top water bait.

OSP Rudra and Varuna. They don't outfish my Duos but time and place for everything. They cast well and darr side to side nicely.
Long live the Jerkbait

I really want to try the asura and varuna jerkbaits. Just picked up an OSP high pitcher max and man does this thing feel solid and the color is out of this world. Every bait I've got from OSP so far has been super nice. Wish the availability on them wasn't so bad.

The OSP Bentminnow is a must have imo. Love fishing this bait - awesome and unique action for sure.

I primarily throw the 100 size, fishing for smallmouth. Medium light plus / medium power casting rod. Whatever you prefer to throw jerkbaits on should work fine.
