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. 333) No Fish at Etomo Harbor and Owashi Harbor (恵曇港と大芦港にて釣果なし)

About 7 a.m., before I started today’s fishing at Nanbo, one of breakwaters in Etomo Harbor, I talked to a friendly lure fisherman at the nearby parking space. He said he fished for flukes today, and he gave me some useful information on current conditions of Etomo Harbor. Some fishermen had already caught young Japanese Spanish mackerels, but they had been sporadic. The water was as cloudy as yesterday. I expected the Japanese sea bass might be interested in my big American plugs, but the fish seemed totally lethargic again. Although the lure fisherman was at rather distant place from mine, he and I left the spot almost simultaneously. Both of us were without any catch. I drove to Owashi Harbor. The water in the harbor was clearer than that in Etomo Harbor. I fished at from Ogu-no-hato, through an unknown small jetty, to Niregi-no-hato. While I enjoyed casting my plugs from those perfectly open spaces, no fish attacked my lures.
