２００６. AUG Dorado in Miyazaki Yoshio Maruyama
At the end of August, I receive a call
from Mr. Tsurusaki “FCLLABO” saying,
“why don’t we go dorado fishing for a change?”.
As SharapoaChibi had just been completed, I went to Nobeoka to target the dorado’s.
The size of the dorado’s in the East China
Sea during this season is small,
however, probably due to the Black current, there are many massive dorado’s.
Mr. Matsuoka caught a nice size as soon as we started fishing.
Caught on SharapoaChibi (sardine).
I hooked up a same size fish, but was not able to gaff it successfully
and hooked off.
A good size hooked up by Mr. Tsurusaki!
Wow! Nice size.
Unlike the usual Dorado’s, this one was very quiet.
caught the largest fish during this trip!
Caught on SharapoaChibi
In the mean time, I was fighting a fish
and looking elsewhere.
Caught on SharapoaChibi (Hair-tail).
Mr. Matsuoka hooked
Consecutive big dorado’s for Mr. Matsuoka.
Caught on SharapoaChibi (Sardine).
As there were numerous tiny size dorado’s, I rigged up an A-Cup to target only the large ones.
Unfortunately, it was a female medium size fish.
Caught on Forb A-Cup (Bonito).
We landed approx 15 fish which were over 1m during this trip.
There were a scary amount of tiny ones.
It looked like the dorado’s were picky with the size of lures and the bite rate with the
A-Cup was 1/10 compared to the SharapoaChibi.
I tried using the (normal size) Sharapoa, but the bites were far more with the Chibi.
Its great to go dorado fishing once in a
