After living in the United States for 15 years, I came back to my hometown Matsue, a small city in the western part of Japan, in November 2014. I imposed a simple rule on myself. Use only American saltwater lures for at least one year and report what they catch...... When a year had passed since then, I decided not to lift this ridiculous restriction. I am still using only American lures.(2014年11月、15年間のアメリカ生活を終え、島根県松江市に帰郷した私は、自分自身に一つのルールを課しました。少なくとも1年間、アメリカのソルトルアーだけを使い、釣果を報告すること......。そして1年が経過した時、私は、この馬鹿馬鹿しい制約を解除しないことに決めました。今もまだ、アメリカのルアーだけを使っているのです。)

(No. 214) No Fish at Sanami Harbor (佐波港にて釣果なし)

Typhoon No. 18 had passed over Matsue by this morning, and I realized that I would not be as busy today as I had expected. So I had the luxury of going to Sanami Harbor this afternoon to fish for one hour and a half before sunset. As you may already know from my past posts, I have been intrigued by the commentary on the harbor in the “Sanin Fishing Spot Guidebook.” This very useful guidebook says that you may catch Japanese sea bass inside the harbor when the sea outside the harbor is rough and muddy rainwater flows into it. Since I read this commentary, I have tried this small harbor when I thought the condition might fit the bill, but I have not caught any fish. Today was not an exception and it was a bummer of course, but I enjoyed nice chats with some friendly fishermen who came to catch squids in vain. Talking to them was satisfying enough.
