Back from Kanazawa Hakkei

Picked up a hat-full of aji and some mackerel – blue, sadly not chub – and I foresee good eating this weekend.  The leftovers will be dried and smoked.

Pick of the catch: the mackerel and the largest aji.  The latter is not even close, in length or girth, to my personal record 38cm fish I caught in the same area in 2006, but it is a good-sized beast.

Thanks as always to Bentenya, of Kanazawa Hakkei, for the friendly and excellent service.  The free bowl of hot miso soup at the end of the day is a life saver after a long day’s winter fishing!
