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. 231) No Fish at Sakitaka-hana in Sanami (佐波の先高鼻にて釣果なし)

This morning I drove first to Saruwatari in Nonami. It was about 5:45 a.m., way before dawn, but there was already a car in the nearby parking lot. I made a U-turn, and drove to Sanami Harbor. I anticipated that there were several cars at the harbor too, but surprisingly I found no car in the parking space. Following the path in the woods, I reached vacant Sakitaka-hana. With eager anticipation, I started casting my favorite lures. I was alone for a while, but about 7 a.m. several bait fishermen started arriving at the spot one by one. We shared the spot peacefully. I was the only lure fisherman and no fish seemed interested in my American lures. Until I left the spot, I saw the bait fishermen catch one striped beakfish and several largescale blackfish. I did not stay long. I left the spot at 9 a.m. I was thinking about Etomo Harbor. Although I had not posted it on this blog, I was at Etomo Harbor yesterday evening and saw some boils. They might have been young Japanese Spanish mackerels. I will chase them this evening.
