Games in Miura – Day 3: Offshore Sagami Bay

20 Sep Games in Miura – Day 3: Offshore Sagami Bay

My uncle’s summer house is only 15 minutes drive away to Nagai Port where offshore game fishing boats leave for summer game.

Party of 6 left for offshore.

P1040681

We’ve encountered schools of bluefin, yellowfin, and skipjack tunas.

P1040679

None allowed us to get close enough. Every time boat gets closer within 100m readius, tunas dive deep.

P1040683

We also stopped by floating obstacles to play with dorado. I took the honor of catching the first fish of the day before showering or chumming, which turned out to be baby size dorado. It was descent fight on my 10wt tackle.

There seem to be schools of baby size dorado one after another, so we’ve decided to enjoy catching them for quick release.

Then we came across a big school of skipjack tunas staying on surface. I couldn’t catch within the 2 chances, but I’m given my share.

P1040687

Good size skipjack tuna whom turned into nice dishes of sashimi.
