How's everyone doing recently?
Today, we would like to share the information for family fishing here in Susaki.
We have been introducing boat fishing for a while but, we share our good place with new angle of fishing.
In Susaki, there is a bay surrounded by the Peninsula called Yokonami.
Bay 's name is Uranouchi where there is probably the densest Akame living in Japan.
This bay is very calm with lots of accessible fishing spots such as surf, pier, stony coast, and so on.
For family, safety alwasy comes first. Most of area in Uranouchi Bay is quite safe for elelmentary school kids or above.
Second thing to coming to parents mind would be "Is there fish easily to catch?"
There is no problem.
This bay gets depth steeply, so if you cast only for 20m (67ft), you can reach many fishes.
What kind of fishes?
7 Silver biddy, 3 Japanese Sillago, and 1 Richardson's Dragonet. Sillago on right is 23cm, 9in!
These are quite easy to catch with simple rig. Light sinker around 15~30g with two hooks.
Bait is polychea. Method is also simple. Cast for around 20m, get a bottom, take a line slag and get a line tension.
Then, drag a rig slowly for 30cm (1ft), stop, wait for a bite, drag a rig slowly for 30cm again, wait for a bite.
If you keep doing this, you will get a bite soon.
It's super easy to catch these fishes within 30 minutes.
This is Uranouchi bay surrounded by Yokonami peninsula.
There are so many safe spots for family fishing.
These fishes on a picture is also edible with simple cooking such as fry and grill.
If you are interested in something big from boat just like we have been introducing all the time,
this is what we recommend !
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.
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.
It is highly recommend to aim those fishes here in Susaki . Detail is here.
We will see you at next information update and hopefully at Susaki for fishing in future!
