Sagamiko Wakasagi Fishing

The ‘dome ships’ (doumu-sen) on Sagamiko; a seafaring man would cringe at the name, as they are really just moored rafts with huts built on top.  With an oil heater inside – where you can boil a kettle – and Western-style toilets without, they are very well-equipped for a relaxed day’s fishing.  The manager ferries you across in a small panga and you are free to come and go, such as for lunch or shopping, with just a phone call.

After stuffing myself with tenpura, the leftover wakasagi were wind-dried overnight and stowed in the fridge:


For breakfast, I skewered a few of the fish and grilled them; they were quite good.



World’s Smallest Game Fish?


Not quite (that particular honour falls to tanago, I imagine) but these fish are tiny: wakasagi.  Taken on Sagamiko yesterday.

Despite being set upon by the office cats and having to bribe them with some of my catch, the bag was good:



Many thanks to Tenguiwa, of Fujino.
