I had a gentleman contact me through my site asking fishing related questions for his upcoming trip to Japan. In his email he mentioned that his visit to Fujigoko would coincide with the sockeye salmon season opener, which I found surprising as I had no idea sockeye salmon could be found in the Fujigoko.
I came across this article that says that Lake Sai is famous for salmon fishing. A quick google of 紅鱒 西湖 returns no further information though. I’m gonna keep digging. Anyone have any insight on this?
Fish hats (魚の帽子を) seem to cost about 1,400 yen, plus or minus. But to get the official Sakana-kun hat, I think it requires both the proper amount of yen + an honorary doctorate of marine science awarded by Tokyo Universality.
Ok, just kidding. I am assuming the fishing ban for all types of fishing ends March 20th.
Plans for fishing one of the Fujigoko or some place else?
Odd weather here. 80˚ F, and sunny here today, but snow predicted for the coming weekend. However, spring is close enough I am trying to pull a Tom Sawyer on the spouse, convince her how much fun it is to mow the yard.
