lure designers he is known throughout Japan as being one of the best
“MONSTER BASS HUNTERS”… and there is a good reason for that.

was caught on an Optimum Heavy Cover Double Spin and tipped the scales
Satan is one of the most influential swim
bait anglers in Japan and continues to develop some of the best known
swimbaits in Japan.
