Seabass Fishing in October (2)

Niigata East Port

I usually enjoy yellowtail fishing in autumn. But yellowtail fishing in this year was not good. So I continued seabass fishing, and luckily got the results beyond anticipation.

The spot was Niigata East Port. I fished deep inside of the bay. I always fish seabass on the river mouth. Seabass fishing in a bay was my first experience.

Fishing methods

I got up early and went to the spot before dawn, cast minnow plugs, retrieved it slowly, and then a seabass bit it. When a day rises, fishes will disappear in depth. Therefore, the chance is before dawn.

This was the first time I went to the bay. It was so dark that I was afraid a seabass could not find my lure. But my anxiety was soon gone. I got two seabasses easily.

Pic.1 shows a small seabass of 41 cm of length. Pic.2 shows the other seabass; the length of it was 65 cm and the weight 1.9 Kg. Though the condition of these fishes was not good, it was very best for the beginning of a game.

I got a seabass of 61 cm in length and 1.4 Kg in weight in this dawn. Its body was also thin. I thought seabasses in this bay were tired out in summer and never recovered yet. After then, the bodies of seabasses I fished were gradually improving and I got some rankers. I will tell you about it soon.
