Post by: niru_04 on Mar 21, 2017, 05:01 AM
I'm a Japanese angler. I would like to introduce fishing in Japan. :D :D

Red rock fish fishing in Japan Sea.

Welcome to MyFishFinder! Looks like a nice Pacific Cod, but I don't know the small ones? How deep are you fishing? I am on the Atlantic coast, much of our cod fishing is about 30 and 300 ft (10 to 100 meters).

Thank you for your comment. Yes, it is cod. That day I fished red rock fish in 60m depth. Bait was very small squid, and coincidentally the cod bothered to it. I give it to a friend, she fried it and said very tasty.
Excuse me, it is Goldeye rockfish, not red rock fish. Other fish is Banded jacopever.

Nice pictures! Do you fish saltwater more than freshwater? I have never fished in saltwater but it's on my bucketlist.  I will try and figure out how to post some pictures as soon as i get fishing. Trout season opens today here in new york but we just got alot of rain and the streams are muddy and flowing fast so i am not going trout fishing for few days.

Post by: niru_04 on Apr 02, 2017, 04:54 AM
You all, I'm very happy to hear the words of warm welcome. Yesterday on April 1, trout fishing was lifted in most parts of Japan. Unfortunately, I could not go. In Japan, bait fishing is more popular than lure and fry fishing for trout fishing. The photograph is a picture of a mountain stream fishing that went on in last June. The fish is the same companion as lake trout. I love both saltwater fishing and freshwater fishing.

In trout fishing in Japan, wild things and things of culturing and discharging are mixed. How about in an American river?

Very cool! Welcome aboard Niru, look forward to seeing your posts in the future! We have a very diverse fishing crowd here, from fresh water to saltwater, streams to lakes. I love it all, and am very eager to see all of the contributions others have. We have some Japanese folks that come to the plant I work at. They were very interested in our trout fishing here. Was pretty cool to exchange fishing stories that seemed to be world's apart! Good luck and fish on!!

Even here, it has become a spring season. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The start of trout fishing in New York State is April 1st as well.  It is same as Fukushma-pref. Unfortunately, smelt fishing has been banned from April 1st here.

Thank you for comment.
Even Japanese people are coming near there. I will fish in all locations, ice, lake, river and sea. I would like to post fun pics in Japan.

you post great pictures. trout stocking here is like Japan. Wild fish have stocked fish added to their streams. It is the same in the Great Lakes. I love all kinds of fishing as well including the ocean.

Welcome Niru!

I hear largemouth bass do well in the warmer climes of Japan much to the chagrin of expensive koi owners! Someone apparently illegally introduced them? I believe a largemouth was caught in Japan that rivals the world record caught here in the U.S.?
Title: Re: Fishing in Japan
Post by: UglyStik on Jun 17, 2017, 09:19 AM
Good picture, Niru. Interesting shanties. Which do you think people there like better, ice fishing or open water?
Title: Re: Fishing in Japan
Post by: niru_04 on Jun 17, 2017, 02:35 PM
Thank you for comment. :D :D

Certainly the discharge of bass in Japan is illegal. However, bass fishing has become a very popular fishing here, and the world record seems to be 10.12kg in Japan. Bass fishing tournaments are held frequently in summer even in the lake of the photo.
 I am special in fishing and eating, and I dont bass fishing.

I think that people here love both, ice fishing and open water fishing. Doing ice fishing people are enjoying other fishing such as bass fishing and mountain stream fishing in other seasons. Of course, I also love both.

I thought of this thread today when I went out in a boat. I bought a used motor to try out on my little boat. It is old and in rough condition, but it ran and started easy. It is a Hangkai (Chinese), I wish it was a Honda!  ;D But it was cheap and seems like it will work good after I give it a little attention. After testing motor out I fished a little, but no luck this time.

I went to crab fishing in river mouth, and could catch 12 crabs.
The crab said “Mokuzugani” in Japanese, and is same family of famous Shanghai crab. It’s soup is very very delicious! In order to catch crab, I should be Ninjya. I approached quietly so as the crab not to be noticed and dropped the worm before. When the crab grips it, I raise it and put it in the net.

There may be many similar places in Japan and America fishing spots. On the ice fishing board, it was said from a fisherman in Montana that it looks like this scenery.

Pic is a local cuisine using crab, "Ganimaki". It crushes the crab, separates the shell from the rest with water. It is a delicious soup seasoned with soy sauce & miso etc and it is very tasty. The crab meat will look something like beaten egg.

I went red sea bream fishing today. 6 fishermen ride on boat and only 4 fish was caught.   I could catch one of them. The tool is 10’ rod and electric reel, the bait is krill.
Red sea bream is special fish in Japan. It was used for celebration.

Thank you for comment. In Japan, electric reel is very popular for ocean boat fishing.
The picture shows a state of fishing in mountain stream on Saturday. The fish is “Iwana” in Japanese, and is same family as brook trout or lake trout.

Electric reel. Very interesting.

Yes  the fish is in the Salvelinus genus AKA the White Spotted Char. Looks very much like our brook trout (Savelinus fontinalis).

Thank you for sharing!  Different types of plants along the coldwater stream than we would find here too.

I'm not familiar with Pacific fisheries in the US so I can't answer.  They look somewhat like a few east coast fish with slightly different coloring.

When I looked at that picture, I though porgy (scup) with a red coloration.  Our scup are actually related to sea breams.  We have porgy here on the east coast that can be caught from shore and out in deeper water.  They are a very good eating fish and are typically caught with small pieces of squid or sea worms.  A fun and popular  light tackle fish.

Thank you for information. :D :D  Sure it seems that fish eat several bait, squid etc. I heard that this fish eat humans body in China. There is 3 method for red sea bream fishing in Japan. First is using krill, second is using shrimp, third is using metal jig. Usually, electric reel is used first method. The first method has low game ability and are boring, but I think that establishment that can catch is the high. I select first method, because I want to eat a lot of tasty fish.

I went kokanee fishing in Lake Numazawa riding on kayak.  :D :D

The depth of the fish is 20-25 m. Bait is simulated bait. I could catch 9 kokanees.
The rod for righteye flounder is just fit on this fishing.
Kokanee is same fish as Sockeye Salmon. It is very tasty and I like it.

My favorite little lake in Mass with no development except for a small swimming beach. Sure glad it's federal nature preserve land now.

That is very neat that the salmon live naturally in some of your lakes. Sounds very similar to the landlocked Atlantic Salmon we have in New England.

Do you know if they were stuck in the lakes or if they chose to become lake dwellers?

Kokanee is landlocked salmon. I think they had been left behind by the lake at the past and became lake dwellers.
They like cold water temperature, so they only stay in Hokkaido in the wild.
It seems that there is Atlantic salmon in North-eastern United States that is the same landlocked type as kokanee.

My picture in here is in my website of smelt fishing. It is no problem. Dacker-san, maybe picture upload system that you use might be down.

Picture is the Kokanee fishing from the shore in same lake. We use chum basket and simulated bait.

When we fish kokanee at the shore, we fish it at about 10m depth from the water surface using float.
 It is about 5m above the bottom.

I went flounder fishing in pacific ocean. The catch was 3, length 29”,22 ” and 21”. Bait was a living sardine. The dish of the pic is flounder with marinated kelp.
I think that flounder with marinated kelp is the most delicious dish among flounder dishes.

Recipe of kokanee

1 Sashimi
 Attention to parasites! But it is the best. Good taste like melting on the tongue.
2 Salt-grilled fish
 Simple and delicious.
3 Butter stir-fry
 Olive oil and butter. Salt with pepper and parsley. Good taste!
4 Soup
 Salt and “Dashi” and chopped green onion. Very elegant taste.
5 Egg pickled in soy sauce
 Originally kokanee is a salmon, it is the same taste. Delicious!

I think that frying and smoking are also delicious.

I caught 33 kokanees last week(the best ever), but this week it was 9.
In Japan, there are many fishing spots restricting the catching number. The number is about 20 or 30.
The number in this lake is 50. But the recreational fee is very expensive, it costs about $45 per day.

A $ 25 per year is good! :D :D
May be cost in this lake is most expensive in Japan. Usually it is $9 to $19 a day, and $45 to $90 yen a year in many places.
There are many fishery cooperatives in each water system. Rates are different for each fishery cooperative.
Kokanee is the most delicious fish among living freshwater fish. And the price of one goes from $ 4 to $ 5. About 10 kokanees can get off.
If I go fishing in the ocean, the cost of the boat takes from $65 to $90 a day. I am very satisfied with the fishing here.

They are smoked rainbow trouts.

I made them by hand-made cardboard smoker last winter.
Saumur is 12%salt water(in a little sugar) within Allspice, white pepper, black pepper, Laurier, sage.
After picking fish in it for 18 hours, drain out salt for 40 minutes and dry for 2 hours.
I smoked the fish with smoker for 6 hours. The temperature was about 158 ℉ and smoked chips was Hickory.
It seems to be popular in the USA to smoke making. I like it too.

Believe it or not someone dropped her off one night at the local animal shelter. I adopted her for $15.00 and with the requirement she had to be neutered.

It is good! Akita, along with Shiba, is the representative dog breed in Japan. It is known as a faithful dog to his master.
Richard Gere movie starring “Hachi: A Dog's Tale” is the story of Akita. In Japan, dogs were kept from the Jomon Period before 10,000 years ago.

I went to Inawashiro Lake for lake trolling on Sunday.
I couldn't catch trout, caught other fish. But my buddy caught 3 trouts. Weather was good, I fell so fine. :D

They are smoked rainbow trouts.

I made them by hand-made cardboard smoker last winter.
Saumur is 12%salt water(in a little sugar) within Allspice, white pepper, black pepper, Laurier, sage.
After picking fish in it for 18 hours, drain out salt for 40 minutes and dry for 2 hours.
I smoked the fish with smoker for 6 hours. The temperature was about 158 ℉ and smoked chips was Hickory.
It seems to be popular in the USA to smoke making. I like it too.

I went to red sea bream fishing in Japan sea, and the cost of a fishing boat is about 65 dollars in half a day.
An interesting part of this fishing is that when the fish bite, the rod tip pierces the sea surface.
Red sea bream is special fish for us and it is regarded as a very auspicious fish. Even when sumo wrestler wins, the big fish is served at the celebration party.

Niru_04-san,

Just noticed you list your location as Fukushima City, Japan. Were you there the tsunami hit and the nuclear plants were breeched? How are things now?
Title: Re: Fishing in Japan
Post by: niru_04 on Oct 24, 2017, 06:24 PM
taxid-san,

That's right!
The nuclear reactor building of the nuclear power plant exploded and the radioactivity caught up to Fukushima city where I live.
There are places where residents still can not live because of radiation, but they are returning little by little.
Also, the sea has been contaminated with radioactivity, but now it has been purified and is returning to the front.
Some rivers are also polluted and still can not be fished.
I had a terrible experience at all!
It was the hardest time for me to have a time when I could not fish. :'(
Also, at the time of the tsunami, the American army helped us as "Operation Tomodachi "
Thank you, everyone in the United States!

Smelt fishing is very popular in Japan and before ice fishing season we fish smelt on dome boat.
The charge is about $ 35 a day.

Niru_04,

Do you know what genus species your smelt are? Are they a native smelt or were they introduced? Our inland smelt here are the genus species Osmerus mordax known as Rainbow Smelt.

Thank you!

Title: Re: Fishing in Japan
Post by: zwiggles on Nov 27, 2017, 03:10 PM
Rainbow smelt are distributed throughout the world are they not? Pretty sure they were only introduced to inland lakes such as the Great Lakes. I thiught they existed naturally in both the Atlantic and pacific oceans in the colder climates, so I’m assuming they are native.
Title: Re: Fishing in Japan
Post by: niru_04 on Nov 27, 2017, 03:55 PM
>jacksmelt-san
Thank you. Soon it will become the ice fishing season. This lake freezes at the beginning of January, and at the beginning of March it becomes ice (ice crowned with snow falling on the surface of water) thicker than 1 m. The picture was posted to iceshantycom last year. Rainbow trout and Brown trout are transplanted to Japan, but Brown trout seems to have a bad influence on native species, in particular.

>fishin4eyes-san
Thank you. In Japan it is very popular to catch smelt in a large boat floating on a lake. There are also heating and comfortable, some people make it a date place.

>taxd-san
Thank you. Smelt in Japan is saying Hypomesus nipponensis, it seems to be distributed in the Okhotsk Sea coast, partly in California State, centering on the northern half of Japan. Especially the discharging business is thriving and more than 100 million eggs are released to this lake every year. It is slightly different from the American Osmerus mordax, even if it grows its size is as small as 5-6 inches.

>zwiggles-san
Thank you. Rainbow smelt seems to diffuse throughout the world, but it is not transplanted to Japan. Essential species are cherished, and it is released to the domestic lake.

It is a threat to the conventional ecosystem in many places, but it seems that it coexists in the lake where I fish.

In Japan smelt fishing is highly gaming fishing just like Bass fishing in USA.
We are enthusiastically engaged in fishing, as is the venue of fishing tours every day.
In the Lake where I go, there are smelt fishing boats more than 10.
The boat where I went is distributing the memorial towel to the man of the top. I was fortunate to be the top.

It was a difficult point of this time that the structure is weak and the heater of the heat source is weak. I would like to improve next time.

I am burning a Hickory smoke wood like a incense. I like its fragrance very good.
The temperature is managed by combining an electric cooktop and a thermostat.  The cooktop is 600W, and is weak.

I like hickory smoke, especially on pork and beef.

I'm getting ready to smoke our Christmas ham.  I use only corn cobs for that. It's a family tradition.  I'll post pictures of my homemade smoker when I get started.   ;D

I set up my smoker today. It is a 55 gallon barrel fed by an old coal stove. The barrel is covered with burlap and a wool blanket to let the smoke seep. No heat reaches the meat. It is a "cold" smoke.
(https://s31.postimg.org/xdactz1br/20171220_150236.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/xdactz1br/)
I am going to smoke a 14 lb. ham shank and two 3 lb. boneless hams.

(https://s31.postimg.org/7vryagbwn/20171220_151354.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/7vryagbwn/)
I use whole corn cobs. That is the only thing that has been burnt in this stove for at least 35 years.

(https://s31.postimg.org/40ok7gsmf/20171220_151926.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/40ok7gsmf/)
I hang the basket of ham in the barrel and light the cobs with a propane torch. No paper or other kindling. Just cobs.

(https://s31.postimg.org/4dfydzazr/20171220_152223.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/4dfydzazr/)
I will burn about a dozen cobs a day for five days. Then I consider the hams done.  My grandfather taught me this many years ago. If I don't smoke ham for Christmas and Easter every year, my daughter's get angry with me!

It’s wonderful! Especially feeling of used tool is very good. Boneless hams looks tasty. Christmas celebrating with homemade food seems to be very fun! I think that "cold" smoke is a difficult way. Someday I would like to make smoked salmon by “cold” smoke.

It is a product consisting of pottery and the underlying metal dish and stainless skewers. The pottery consists of two ones, one on that outside and the other table on which charcoal is placed. On outside pottery,there are 14 holes in the outside towards the inside, and I insert a stainless steel skewer there. Place charcoal on  table is placed and bake the fish with skewers and bake it very well. Fish is very delicious.

Thank you, I thought it was some type of char. I’m in Maine, USA and we have a hybrid of brook (aka speckled) trout and lake trout that get stocked in some lakes, and those looked very similar.
This is the hybrid that we call splake, I caught it about a month ago

Thank you for the picture. Surely it is most similar to brook trout. In Japan, Iwana is the fish most living upstream of the river, it is a popular fish in mountain stream fishing. Bait fishing, fly fishing, lure fishing, we can fish in any way.

I could find a school of kokanee where is front 40m of my kayak. And I was able to detect their course. The function other than live view was not necessary. I may have made an excessive investment. But it is good toy of fishing.

I got the ps22 a couple weeks ago myself, I’ve used it twice so far and bringing it out again tomorrow. It may be pricey, but I already feel it was worth it. I see it as about the same as investing in a gaming computer. People spend just as much if not more into other electronics, and most of it keeps them indoors, while we get to play in the real world.

I agree with this changing the way I will fish. It’s better than having under water cameras, those can’t see far enough, the water has to be perfect for it to be useful. I got mine as the ice fishing package since I feel that is where it will make the biggest difference. Plus, it’s portable so I can use it in my boat or in any of my friends.

It’s wonderful that your lakes are already frozen! In Japan(Honshu), ice fishing is usually start around the end of December. In my lake (Hibara lake), ice fishing will be start around mid-January. Until then, it will be fishing on a dome boat. I gona go to dome boat for smelt fishing next Monday. I'm planning to post to iceshanty.com about the picture of ice fishing.

I went smelt fishing yesterday. It was difficult to catch it. Because bite is very little and I had to hook it by intuition. Garmin’s panoptix system is excellent! I could watch school of smelt on the bottom. On the screen it is the yellow green part below. I’m looking forward to use it in ice fishing.

And Merry Christmas guys! Good luck for fishing.

Smelt fishing is very popular in Japan. The Japanese smelt is very small. About 2-4 inches.
We usually use an electric reel using AAA batteries. Terminal tackle is small 5-7 hooks with 4-5g sinker.
Bait is maggot cutting it in half. We enjoy very small bite that’s on rod tip.

Very beautiful as always, I bet it’s nice getting out to a stream again!  The scenery and trout look like just like what we’d have here in Maine too. Very curious what kind of trout you have, that really looks like a brook trout.

My guess is Salvelinus leucomaenis, or "whitespotted char"

They look real similar to brook trout when young/juvenile but start to look distinctly different as they grow older.  While the landlocked variety seem to be similar sized to eastern brook trout (fontinalis), it looks like they can get quite larger than eastern brook trout when sea-run/anadromous.  Very cool fish for sure...

It’s “Iwana” in Japanese, and scientific name is Salvelinus. They are in the same group of brook trout and lake trout. “Iwana” is living in most upstream, and so popular fishing target fish in Japan. The biggest size is over 24".

Yep, Iwana = whitespotted char.

Salvelinus is the genus, leucomaenis is the species.

I opened the restaurant on the lake. Menu is only butter fried kokanee.

I love your mountain stream and the trout you caught. I  just returned from the Catskills in New York State and fished Fir Brook , a small trout stream which contain brook trout; caught 4 from 6-9 inches on a tan caddis size 16 fishing one afternoon in the forrested mountains near De Bruce, NY. Also fisahed for brown trout in the Beaverkill and Willowemoc Rivers getting 46 browns to 20 inches all on flies. Great fun; come visit!

Wow, cooking in a kayak, that takes some skill. Even when are out in a bigger boat, we still go to shore to do any cooking. That’s an amazing way to have your meal, and a nice batch of fish too. I always enjoy reading your posts and seeing your pictures. I hope you’re enjoying your panoptix, I just got a separate mount for my ice package so I can scan around with it in a boat without clamping it to the trolling motor.

My panoptix system is working well. Tomorrow, I'm planning to shoot a video of the situation. When editing is over, I'll introduce it here.

Awesome video Niru! The salmon must hit the rod and then head towards the surface? It’s odd seeing the rod lose tension when the fish hits.

Thank you. :D :D This fish has the habit of swimming upwards after biting. So It is signal of bite that there is no tension at the tip of rod. They pull 112.5g sinker.

Our land locked Atlantic salmon where I live so the same thing. Sometimes they are out of the water before you can get to the rod!

I see. They like jumping. Kokanee is landlocked sockeye salmon, so very delicious. I love it.

Yhank you. :D :D  I love this fishing method. Maybe I think it was transmitted from the US. I thank to the person who invented this method.
And also love Garmin sonar.

I don't see many people on the lake with you. I would think as densely populated as Japan is, there would be more?  I realize the area you are in is not densely populated but still...

And thank you for sharing!

Entry fee on this lake is expensive. It costs about $ 250 a season (April to September) or $ 45 a day.
So I think there are few anglers.
I really like the kayaking fishing table I made myself. The rod and transducer can be fixed, which is very convenient.

niru_04,

Thanks for your reply. Yes when money is involved that separates the serious ones from the not so serious. That said I would gladly pay $250.00 per year to fish a lake like that!

Very nice platform. Your skill at building things is impressive! Is this in your line of work?

Thank you. :D :D I like handmade fishing tool. It has nothing to do with my work, but there are many attractive tools that my father-in-low is using at wife’s house. It is very fun to devise and make various tools.
