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. 220) No Fish in Mitsu and Owashi Areas (御津と大芦地区にて釣果なし)

My place is much closer to Mitsu and Owashi areas in Matsue City than to fishing spots in Izumo City such as Ichinose or Ohtoko-bana. However, I had not been to Mitsu and Owashi areas very often. I have almost ignored fishing spots in both areas. Somehow I tended to feel that the farther I get away from my place, the better the chance to catch fish gets. My recent catching a coveted yellowtail amberjack at Saruwatari in Nonami area, Matsue City, changed me. Now I feel like trying more neighboring spots in Mitsu and Owashi areas.
Today I tried as many spots in both areas as possible. The spots that I tried were Nagasaki-bana, Nadaoke, Motoakabira and Umanose to the east of Mitsu Harbor, Ohhira to the east of Mitsu Harbor, and Mizushiri, Susumi-hana and Maruiwa in Owashi area. I spent almost 8 hours on getting to these spots to cast my favorite lures. I also shot my repainted Sea Fly (Tomoe/Palico’s Midnight Kitten Special), which was mentioned in my previous post, moving on the surface. Unfortunately I did not catch any fish at any spot today, but all these spots looked promising.
