2009/8/5 Shore Game for Small Fish: Misaki, Kanagawa
I went out with my cousin for brief fishing in the afternoon. We found a good looking inlet near Misaki Harbor, so my cousin took out his sabiki tackle and I took out my 6wt with floating line.
As my cousin placed his chumming rig on upstream of the current, I tied my micro X fly and put it on natural drift and fall. I spotted mullet, baby size black porgy, and bay anchovy; but none actively biting on fly.
Then I managed to catch new speci, Japanese surfperch (Ditrema temmincki), in 14cm. Almost no fighting whatsoever, and I had to release it quickly as it showed a sign of fatality.
