皆さん、こんにちは！「 FRESH JAPAN FISHING」です。
Hi everyone! Today’s fishing report is about my extremely tiring day-trip to Sagami bay in Kanagawa prefecture. I took a flight from Osaka to Tokyo on 27th October 2018, Saturday, and stayed at a capsule hotel alone in Kiba, Tokyo.
It was pretty clean and the bed was comfy, but the noise from people walking or talking made it hard for me to hit the sack. As a result, I only slept for 2 hours. I got up at 2 a.m and my fellow Singaporean angler-friend picked me up at 3 a.m to drive down to Chigasaki, Kanagawa together.
We got on a boat called Okiemonmaru. The good news is that there are English speakers so you can make an inquiry in English and not have to worry about communication barriers! Here’s the address:
4 Chome-23-２０ Nango, Chigasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture 253-0061
Price: Men: ￥11,500、Women：￥8,500
In the morning, I lost 2 big fish near the surface of the water. Then a Mahi-Mahi went for my shrimp the minute I dropped the bait in and started jumping out of the surface. Unfortunately it started dashing around 3 lines and tangled them up. The deckie had no choice but to cut the line midway and give me a new hook. It was pretty sad as it’s not my style to leave hooks in a fish’s mouth.
Then about 2 hours later, I jerked the rod using a lift-and-fall method to release shrimp from the cage. At that time, I felt a bite, then it became a hard pull!
I got it!
This time, I reeled it up carefully to ensure that I wouldn’t lose it again. It was seriously pulling my line and trying to make a dash for it. Luckily, I managed to scoop it up with a net at last!
It’s about 5 kilos!
People who have gone fishing with me would know my style, and that is, it’s better to treasure one fish than to catch too many and leave no fish for our future generations.
