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. 295) No Fish at Setokaze-bana and Takase in Mitsu and at Uppurui-bana (三津の瀬戸風鼻と高瀬、そして十六島鼻で釣果なし)

Today I started fishing at Setokaze-bana in Mitsu, Izumo City. It was about 5 a.m., and as soon as I started casting my lures, a few fishing boats gathered around the spot for some reason. I did not want to interfere with their professional fishing. I drove to a nearby spot, Takase, a big rock at the east end of Mitsu Harbor. No baitfish was sighted. The calmness of the sea was so discouraging that I soon gave up the spot and drove to Uppurui-bana. Unfortunately, there was no big difference. There was neither baitfish nor a good current. I swam around the tip of Uppurui-bana. There was nothing in the water except some floating seaweeds.
