Big news from Snagex. He was able to catch a really nice Kare (Flat Fish) off the port (pictured right). I'm awaiting details of the catch, but once again he has managed to prove himself as the "King of the Port". He plans on getting an authentic ink print of this one suitable for framing. I'll post the picture when available.
Pictured left is a mess of nice Ayu that were caught just before my Iraq departure. I'll save the details of Ayu fishing for this summer, but this is probably one of the most interesting things that I've ever tried. I'm gearing up now for the start of the summer season.....much much more to follow on this one.
Mebaru / Soi (Rock Fish)
I think that I should be able to break away this week sometime for a little night fishing for Mebaru at the port. Pictured right are a small mess of Mebaru (Red Rock Fish) and Soi (Black Rock Fish) that I caught last Fall prior to leaving for Iraq. Hopefully by the end of the week, I'll have some new Mebaru pictures.
March Big Event - Going for Sakuramasu
I received an Invite from Tenchou to go boat fishing for Cherry Salmon toward the end of this month. This will be my first experience at this and I'm very anxious. The Cherry Salmon is known in Japan as Sakuramasu and is the "out-to-sea" version of the Yamame Trout.
