I went GT fishing on the Yosemiya 3 in Okinawa.
It had been 2 years since I had last come fishing to Okinawa.

I joined Mr. Katofs team (Nagoya) for this trip.
Ifm not sure if this is as usual, but throughout Japan,
extreme weather has influence all aspects of life, and when we thought spring came,
a cold front comes and its back to Winter, effecting all fish species.

However, for some reason, the GT fishing in Tokara and Okinawa seemed to be on a great start, with lots of good news.

The first fish was hooked up by Mr. Tanaka.

This lure is the best in the afternoons.
G-Cup low-light orange nicely hooked up.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
It was a 25kg GT. Congratulations Mr. Tanaka.

I was next! I managed to hook up on the 2nd bite!
Although the first fish I lost was small, I took extra care in fighting this fish.

I canft say that this was the size I was after, however, it was a 23kg GT with a sexy mole by its eye.
I was glad to have caught a Okinawa GT since 2 years. Thank you Captain Maeda!

The next day, Mr. Katou (Aichi) hooke up. Fighting hard, it seems big.
After a while a decent GT surfaced.

Mr.  Katou and his 30kg GT. Congratulations Mr. Katou!
The GTs in Okinawa tend to be thick for its length.

Mr. Katou and captain Maeda sharing their joy!

I went GT fishing in Okinawa on Yosemiya 3 again.
The domestic GTs are on a great run this year, so intend to go on many trips to catch a bigger fish.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
On the first day when the GTs were reluctant to attack our lures,
Rumiko hooked up what seemed to be decent by jigging.


@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The fish landed by a jigg was a small GT!

Surfer Mr. Jyumonji who was casting beside me hooked up a big one!
Strong fighter! I get heated up by just looking on at his fight.

@@@@copyright(c)@south times@all@rights@reserved.
The GT surfaced and Maeda Captain carefully netted it.

The next fish attacked Mr. Nishifs (Okinawa) lure.
This time he was carefully fighting. He actually lost a fish prior to this one just before landingc

Although small, he was a happy man.
