Shimagaijin's fishing pointers -- January

Date Posted: 2002-01-04

Hello, fellow fishermen! It痴 time again for this month痴 fishing pointers. The weather has been terrible this month and fishing has been difficult and cold, but be on the lookout for diehard fishermen. Big fish can be caught! During this time of year, fish aren稚 as plentiful as during other seasons, but this is certainly the time of year for catching big fish! Right now, the winds are strong and the waves are big, so be patient and always stay up-to-date with the local weather forecasts. This season can be dangerous, so be aware of any changes in the weather.

When I知 not out working in the ocean, I normally spend my time kayaking in shore, lure fishing. I知 still having fun catching chin and small jack travel using light tackle. You don稚 really need to have a kayak though. You can go anywhere. Even the small canals in Chatan and the Awase Port can make for a fun afternoon.

Recently, working at the Awase piles, we致e been running into a lot of sharks! Please, be careful! They may be small and look harmless but they have enough teeth to inflict damage on yourself or others. If you do decide to boat one of these fish, be sure to stay away from the mouth and quickly remove its head. Even after you remove the head, it is still good to use plyers to remove the hook because they can still bite you! This is a serious issue, so be careful! The Awase piles are located 25 to 30 miles offshore of Awase.

This month, many big fish were caught including an 80lb Tuna in Awase by trolling, a 120lb Sail Fish off Maeda Point by shore fishing, a 10lb Lobster, 50lb Mahi Mahi, and 16lb Makebo all caught boat fishing in Awase.

Chris Pancoast profile

Chris Pancoast came to Okinawa about 10 years ago as a member of the U.S. Air Force and claims 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 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.
