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. 230) No Fish at Mitsu Harbor (御津港にて釣果なし)

I had worked so hard today since early in the morning that I felt I needed a break this late afternoon. Although there was less than one hour left before sunset, I drove to Mitsu Harbor. I just felt like casting some of my favorite lures in order to relieve my stress and refresh my brain. When I arrived at a parking space about 4:30 p.m., one lure fisherman just came back from one of the breakwaters. He said he had tried to catch squids but the water temperature was already too low. Knowing I was after Japanese sea bass, he kindly told me that, unlike squids, they might be around. I showed my American tackle to the friendly fisherman. Then, I started casting my lures from the tip of the breakwater. I primarily used the Darter and Jetty Swimmer Plugs made by Couch’s Cedar Works (CCW). I love the painting of them. It imitates the bunker. CCW plugs don’t have eyes, but the big black dots on the sides look like adorable eyes. What a cute lure!!
