No fish

Again, I got skunked. Today, I took two pairs of fishing rod & reel on my floating tube, because I wanted to compare them under the same condition. However, it was very bothersome to take care of them.

Slow fishing

I prowled and prowled to catch a big bass. It's getting cooler and I expected to strike a bonanza, but all that actively hit were small ones.

Tuna fishing, canceled

We planned to go on a tuna fishing trip in Kume Island, Okinawa, but it was canceled because of an expected typhoon. I was looking forward to catching big fish and have prepared lots of stuff such as fishing reels, lures, wear, and so on. The sea is very calm around my place in the western Japan, and would like to go another fishing, but it is too bad most of my saltwater fishing reels are still in the mail to Okinawa!

Quiet fight

It's getting a little cooler early in the morning after the Typhoon No.9 passed away from Japan. Today, I went bass fishing around my area first time in a while. In the first pond I visited, I caught a bass with a Chugger Spook in WBS (white with black spots) color. The hit of this bass was so calm that I barely noticed it.

After I caught this bass, I also fished in a couple of more ponds, and caught another small bass (I took no pictures of it and released it immediately). The water temperature was still very high and fish were not more active than I expected, but It was very lucky to catch fish. Anyway, I enjoyed a lot.

Today's tackle:
ABU Record, Phillipson F562, Stren 14lb (Clear Blue), Heddon Chugger Spook, Zara Spook, Wounded Spook, Zaragossa, Lucky 13, etc.
