On the third day back home, September 17, it started raining early in the morning. The wave is about 1 to 1.5 meters and there is no problem, but it can’t be helped when it rains. We spent a leisurely morning cleaning the house, but it started to drizzle, and by midnight we were in a good mood. We started to prepare for fishing immediately and left the port at 12:30. We went to a secret base at the same depth of 100m line as yesterday. The gums may or may not reach the bottom, and it will googgle. I don’t know what to say… I couldn’t wait for two minutes and ended up reeling it in.
It is not an atmosphere of floating a small boat on a big sea and taking it easy. It is quite busy with the repetition of going down and going up and going up and going down. I hung a fishing line at the same place and in the same conditions as yesterday, but for some reason the fish shadow was different, mackerel and horse mackerel were not clear and today it was all about the sea bream. Even so, I raised and lowered the fish 20 to 30 times and caught about 30 bream. I tried a little harder, hoping to get at least 50 cards, but by 3:00, it was just a few more. As it rained, the waves got higher and higher and the white waves started to rise. A fisherman says, “Don’t lick the sea. Watch the clouds and turn back immediately! . My friend’s words flashed through my mind. I know I can catch fish if I go down, but this is where I have to make a decision. With a twinge of regret, I made up my mind and raised the tide sail. The wave was about 1.5 meters and it was not much, but the wind was strong and the bottom of the boat collided with the wave. The boatman flew and sank with a droning, droning sound. The captain roars loudly to the enka “Brother Ship” and summons up his courage. I don’t care if you are tone deaf. Even so, we returned to the port safely after 4:00 p.m.
On the day of the festival, there was an event to remember Emperor Go-Daigo’s presence. At 7:30 pm, 1250 fireworks were set off. Unfortunately, it was raining, but the fireworks from the sea were wonderful and there was a lot of yelling of tamayah.
It was good only for these two days, and after that it was not good for fishing by the influence of the rain and the typhoon, and the plan to return to Osaka was made, “This is no good…”, but at 6 o’clock in the morning of the day, “Ping Pong Pa, I will inform you from Nishinoshima disaster prevention center. Today’s Oki Kisen, Ferry and Rainbow will be cancelled due to sea time. On the day of the tour, Oki Island is an isolated island in the sea. The only thing I could do was to indulge in reading, and in the end I returned to Osaka the next day.
