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. 348) Mysterious Plastic Buckets Found at Susumi Bay while No Fish at Owashi and Sanami Harbors (大芦港と佐波港にて釣果なしも、須々海湾にて不審なポリバケツ発見)

The swell was still strong when I started fishing at Niregi-no-hato in Owashi Harbor this morning. I hoped I would catch a Japanese sea bass, but nothing happened. Then, I moved to Ogu-no-hato, another breakwater in the harbor. It seemed that there was no creature in the harbor except several surfers who waited patiently for strong waves. Because of the tenacious swell, I still hoped I would catch a Japanese sea bass somewhere, so I drove to vacant Sanami Harbor, and then to Susumi Bay in Owashi. Neither spot produced any strike, but I found the mysterious plastic buckets at Susumi Bay. Since this February it has been reported that a large quantity of mysterious plastic buckets drifted ashore in the Sanin Region. Some of them reportedly still contain a strong acid. If you find it, you had better avoid it.
