Yellowfin Tuna Game Has Started in Susaki!!!

The biggest was 15kg(33lb)!! It was caught when anglers casted lures for bonito.

Because I have never done Yellowfin Tuna game before, I was imagining yellowfin tuna is the fish for summer, but anglers can catch them even in Spring.

Season started that early, then we might be able to see record-breaking monster this year!

The biggest one I have seen  so far is one caguth by the captain of Yoshino Marina Resort, 70kg (154lb)!!



This is a bonito. As introduced in last article, spring bonito has been said that less fat compared to bonito caught in fall season but one I ate the other day was quite tasty with appropriate amount of body fat. Not this year at least, but if you ever have a chance to come to Japan in Spring, this is a must to try.


This day, angler got a lot of bonito along with yellowtail tuna. ↓


Blue stripe lining on the back is so cool!


Even though Yellowfin Tuna season has just started, how many in total anglers got in one day.

Take a look at below!
