Gone fishing

Vacationers enjoy fishing in Tokyo Bay on Friday, the first day of the Golden Week holidays. Tokyo Gate Bridge, which spans Tokyo Bay, linking Wakasu in Koto Ward with the Jonanjima Seaside Park in Ota Ward, can be seen in the background.

Wow! It's windy enough to blow a dog off its chain today! I can't imagine fishing would be much fun. However, the weather for the rest of GW looks pretty good. Stay safe and avoid the highways in peak hours or you'll spend most of your vacation sitting in traffic.

Fishing IN Tokyo Bay? They're game

You are so right about that strong wind today. Good luck keeping those poles straight up in position.

I certainly wouldn't eat anything coming out of there, and fishing for sport is stupid. As for the wind, agreed.

Folks in case you don't know there is a LOT of fish caught in Tokyo Bay that ends up on the plate, a LOT!

And the water quality is a lot better than the 60-70s

This is very true. There are a couple of hotspots for fishing in Tokyo Bay where the submerged sandbars draw in huge numbers of fish. One is just southeast of the Bayside Marina in Yokohama. There are always dozens of commercial fishing boats anchored out there over one very specific spot.

Doesn't mean it's good, especially if they're catching bottom feeders. And I'm not suggesting it's better everywhere else, either.

Who says they are fishing for sport? Have you ever seen any results testing the water quality in Tokyo bay? Are you in any position to determine what is stupid? Does anyone care what you would stick in your big mouth?
