On September 4, 9 (Sunday), we were able to hold the Omura Bay Family Chinu Fishing Tournament, which had been canceled for two years due to the corona vortex, for the first time in three years.
There were 36 participants and 17 pairs in the general division, and 42 participants in the family division (participating children were 4 children from 3 years old to the third grade of junior high school), a total of 24 people.
This time, the port that was used as the reception venue in the northern part of Omura Bay, which had been used until the last time, was in trouble due to problems such as garbage being left unattended, but Nagayo Town kindly accepted the use of the venue.
Therefore, the venue for the reception and the opening and closing ceremonies was changed to the multi-purpose square in Nagayo-cho, which is adjacent to the high-speed boat terminal.Inevitably, the fishing grounds shifted from the northern part of Omura Bay to the southern part.
Since the first time, this family sea bream fishing tournament has adopted the cannonball method, so those who have been participating for a long time and those who often go fishing in the northern part of the prefecture can reduce the actual fishing time and use it as a travel time. Some people were planning to run to the northern area where they were accustomed to fishing, but after the reception and the opening ceremony, they spread out to their favorite places and enjoyed fishing.
This time, I rented life jackets for children at the Nagasaki Prefecture Fishing Association Council, and I felt that most families were prepared and it was wonderful.
The two who were involved in the victory were the two who chose the river that flows into the port of the venue from the tendency of the local fishing spot that they were used to fishing even though it was their first fishing spot.Among them, Mr. Sugasaki, who came in 2nd place, even got the big prize.
In the staff's pre-fishing, although the weather was stormy, the fishing conditions at the nearby port were not very good, but as expected, the participants of the general division, who were full of veterans, won the championship with three fish weighing 3 kg. 4,25 kg even in 5th place. 3,47 out of 36 people had 18 fish, and I could feel the depth of the fish in Omura Bay.
