This is probably one of the best I have seen so far:)

Too bad I did not read the original.

Woke up at 3:30 myself today to hit the sunrise on the surf. No luck with stripers but ocean was beautiful.


In my humble opinion, the greatest fishing culture has to be the japanese. If I see japanese names on the log, I am so not in the pot.


Nope! Vietnamese all the way! You should see what happens when my grandma gets out to a lake with her pole. The fish basically leap STRAIGHT INTO HER WAITING ARMS. No lie.


Just haven't seen the japanese in action. Theres not a ton in the bay area so you don't really notice, but some of the best guys out there are nisei. Takahiro Omori ain't no fluke. If you get spanked badly by an asian guy, odds are he's japanese.


The old-school japanese fishermen are getting long in the tooth and the next generation are not learning "the ways." Where's Mr Miyagi when we really need him? My brothers and I are the youngest j-brutha's out there and we're in our 40's, which is too old to be waking up at 4:30 and riding a gear-laden bike out to a rainy, cold-ass pier.


You'd be surprised how many young Japanese-Americans I run into on a weekly basis... In fact I would say they are carrying the torch quite well. Thanks for all the commentary on this one.
