Shimagaijin's fishing pointers -- March

Date Posted: 2002-03-08

This past month wasnít the greatest for getting out to the Piles, and the fishing wasnít all that good, either. On an average day we caught about 70 fish, with the largest weighing about 20 to 30 pounds. The mahi seemed to be thinning out, and we were only able to catch three or four per day. Shore fishing was even worse. There were some days when I wished Iíd been fishing on the Internet rather than with a rod. So now that I have depressed you all, Iíd like to say donít worry! This coming month is definitely going to be better. The big eye tuna are on their migratory route back through Okinawa, with a large school of mahi on their tail. Inshore fishing will also be better, with gudakun and red snapper on the rise. Also, the amber jack and grouper will be a little more aggressive. Offshore, bottom fishing is sure to pick up, as will river and inlet lure fishing.

Following are some of the big fish caught during February:
Big eye tuna (93kg) Boat fishing/lure Near Dito-Jima
Swordfish (70kg) Boat fishing/lure Near Dito-Jima
Yellow fin tuna (53kg) Boat fishing/lure Awase Piles
Amber jack (15kg) Boat fishing/lure Inshore

Well, good luck and if you happen to hook a big one, give me a call. Iíd love to hear from you all! Iím also trying to organize a small light tackle lure tournament/barbeque around March 23 or 24, so telephone me for more details. For weather reports or any other information, or to sign up for my fishing chartering service, ring me at 098-939-7682 or 090-9788-0282. Iíll always be there to help. I hope everybody has a safe month of boating and fishing!

Chris Pancoast profile

Chris Pancoast came to Okinawa about 10 years ago as a member of the U.S. Air Force and says he started fishing at the age of three, 25 years ago. He dreamt of being a fisherman while growing up, so that is the occupation he chose to pursue. After five years of service in the military, Chris left and has been making ends meet with his love for fishing ever since. He is currently working with the Awase Harbor boat captains running his own chartering service, taking fishing fanatics wherever they want to go.
