※Kuwase tsuri tecnique：
A kind of fishing style recently becoming quite popular in Japan. Boat looks for a group of bait fish such as sardines, horse mackerel and so on, and anglers fish them first. After hooked on small bait fish, anglers leave it without reeling it in and wait until predatory fish such as Five-ray Yellowtain, Amberjack, etc feed on the bait fish. Since the rig is used to catch both bait fish and predatory fish, thick line such as 40lb or more is used to avoid predatory fish to get into structures. Also called "Otoshikomi tsuri tecnique" in Kyusyu and Kinki area in Japan.
