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. 332) No Fish at Etomo Harbor, Mitsu Harbor, and Susumi Bay and Maruiwa in Owashi (恵曇港、御津港、そして大芦の須々海湾と丸岩にて釣果なし)

About this time last year I had already seen some fishermen catch young Japanese Spanish mackerels at Etomo Harbor. Something might have happened to the fish this year. It seems that not only I but also other many fishermen have not caught the fish yet. I switched over from young Japanese Spanish mackerels to Japanese sea bass this morning because the sea was rough. The latter loves the white churning water. About 7 a.m. I started the run-and-gun style fishing from the spot in front of the Ice plant in Etomo Harbor. Then, I moved to Edabo and Nanbo, two breakwaters in the harbor. Nothing exciting happened except when I had a nice chat with a friendly fisherman at Edabo. I gave up Etomo Harbor and drove to Mitsu Harbor. Neither fisherman nor fish were found there. Then I drove to Susumi Bay and Maruiwa in Owashi. There were nice patches of sarashi (white churning water), but I got soaked to the skin by the wild waves before catching any fish. I had to leave right away in order to avoid catching a cold.
