Giant Horse Mackerel Fever in Susaki, Japan!

 Hello, everyone!


It is getting cold in Northern Hemisphere and hot in Southern Hemisphere.


How is your catch recently ?


If there is any chance to visit Japan and you want to try to fish in Japan, why don't you try to catch "Giant Horse Mackerel" ? 

There is no such species name but regular size of horse mackerel in Japan in offshore is about 30cm, 1ft.


However, here in Susaki, there are horse mackerel way bigger than we think.



1 more centimeter to reach 50cm, 20in!!!


This blew our knowledge about the size of horse mackerel !!

I have never seen such big mackerel like this.

Each horse mackerel is worth about 1000 JPY which is about 9 USD and the biggest will be over 2000 JPY, 20 USD for sure in market price.

What a result!


This information have been provided from Yoshino Marina (Only in Japanese).

Captain Okkamu above is mainly fishing with raw or live bait but we, Susaki Tourism Fishing Center, provide lure fishing service as well.

Fishing style is called "Tairaba" which is effective for Red Snappers and other kinds of snappers. Here in Susaki, winter is the best season for big snappers. We highly recommend Tairaba style fishing service.

Detail is here.



As well as lure fishing service, we also provide the service that carries anglers to offshore inlets for Smallscale Blackfish and Striped Beakfish. Both fishes become fatter and fatter in winter and more tastier.

It is highly recommend to aim those fishes in winter . Detail is here.


Well, this is it for first update of the year. We will see you at next information update and hopefully at Susaki for fishing in future!


Fish on!!
