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. 323) No Fish at Maruiwa and Susumi-hana in Owashi (大芦の丸岩と須々海鼻にて釣果なし)

There seemed still a lack of baitfish around Susumi Bay in Owashi. The sea was not calm but choppy with swells, which looked promising for fishing, but nothing interesting happened this morning. I might want to temporarily suspend chasing big yellowtail amberjacks using big plugs. Instead, I would spare more time for catching young Japanese Spanish mackerels using small metal jigs. I might have to be a guide for some fishing beginners this fall and winter. Unlike the amberjack, the mackerel can be caught more easily at a much safer spot such as inside a harbor. I will recommend the beginners to chase the mackerel.
