Young tuna season has come!

Hello, world anglers !

How is it going?


Here in Susaki, though there is no official announcement from Japan Meteorological Agency yet, it seems like rainy season has finished,

by looking at the  weather forecast, rainy season has been over already.


Then, what people in Susaki chase is this fish.

Young bullet and frigate tuna.


Large groups of these tunas swim around the coast of Susaki bay. These tunas are quite fast to lose their freshness. So, only anglers, fishermen, or people living near the port can eat fresh tunas.

The way to eat them is bit unique.  There is a kind of citrus called Busyukan only harvested in Kochi Prefecture. We squeeze it a lot and mix with bit of soy sauce.

And, dip fresh cut of tuna meat into and eat. This is considered as the taste of summer in Susaki.

There is even Tuna Festival held every year in Susaki though it has been canceled due to corona virus.


On July 26th,  several boats launched to get tuna and came back with these!

With tuna, there are several mackerel which are good to fry.


マダイThese are not from anglers who tried to get young tuna but tried Tai-jig. It is quite interesting to see that even Horse mackerel attacked Tai-jig which is the rig for Red Snapper.



Susaki Tourism Fishing Center provides this kind of lure fishing service as well.

Fishing style is called "Tai-jig" 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!


Fish on!!
