On this episode, we visit scenic Ise Shima in Mie Prefecture to meet an angler who loves to catch the beautiful blackhead seabream. He employs a strategy that begins with bait shaped into a ball of paste in which he hides hooked live bait. This draws in small fish that nibble the ball and thus muddy the water, which then attracts the curious blackhead seabream who can't help but bite when the ball finally breaks and releases its live bait. Will this elaborate deception succeed? Join us to find out!
