Shimagaijin's fishing pointers -- December

Date Posted: 2001-12-07

Hello, fellow fishermen! Itís time again for this monthís fishing pointers. Right now, pile fishing is very effective. The numbers for tuna are very good, but theyíre a little on the small side. Yellowtail and mahi-mahi are still large, but they are slim. Also, taman, chin, grouper and jack fishing has been pretty productive. Recently I went to Yagaji in Nago and caught chin and grouper using lures. Pencil- and minnow-type lures are working very well. Now, for recreational fun, bottom fishing or shore fishing in Kin Bay and Nakagusuku should be enjoyable. However, at this time of year the winds are strong and the waves are big, so patience and weather information are a must. This season can be dangerous, so be aware of any changes in the weather. Also, right now, float fishing using worms and bottom fishing using cut sama for bait are doing very well. A 130 cm. Awase tachiyo will be a good catch until about February. My fellow fisherman and I had a good month last month with many great catches, including a 2 kg. chin, a 20 kg. grouper, a 3 kg. taman and a 100 kg. tuna. During the month of December, the following fish are in season, so grab your pole and head out to the big blue sea!

Type Bait Method Location
Chin Lure (minnow) Off-shore Yagaji
Grouper Bait (gurukuma) Boat Awase
Taman Lure (minnow or jig) Boat Kin Bay
Tuna Bait (moraaji) Boat Uken

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 the service 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.
