Here is the video footage that I took with a few slow motion sections to show you what we can work on for the next time we have a practice .

Nitro Messiah and 75 Gram Busted lure

Talk soon :water:



I'd really recommend watching this one in particular. The adjustments JS made to my OHT cast here were probably the most helpful of all the different techniques of casting I've picked up.

Also god damn I was out of shape there...

Thanks for posting; I really should spend some time learning how to get more out of my casts too. A couple of my mates have had lessons with JS and have improved dramatically.

It might be a dumb question, but what is an OHT cast?

OHT = overhead thump, OTG = of the ground.

The OHT only works on the vertical axis. It is much much easier to learn and be accurate with, however the distance is not the same.

The OTG goes further but is far more difficult to learn and execute because you're using your bodies rotational energy and footwork to assist in transferring power to the rod.

I stick with the OHT because it's more economical for spinning and casting with pulley rigs, or when space is limited or footwork is difficult due to terrain.

I'm not actually trying to cast as far as I can, due to long fishing sessions and spinning with heavy rods i'm looking for the most meters for energy I can find and the OHT seems to fill that slot.

yep just some practice casting after the rain thought the water would,nt be right and talking to one of the local icebergs/swimmers he said there was still a funny taste in the water caused from the runoff of the fire chemicals used to put out the fire near the warmies
