Hello all.  I recently got stationed back on the "Rock" Okinawa, Japan and have heard there is some good fishing spots to catch bass here.  i am an avid bass fisherman from Florida and left all my gear back home to my son.  I have currently been ordering and restocking yet another few sets of rod, reels and equipment.  I know of some places here that produce, but anyone know of some spots not so hard to get too?  I live right next to Zakimi Lake and have a Sea Eagle 285 in route for use while I'm here.  Can anyone assist with some advice on baits and locations?

Not able to offer advice for Okinawa but, you are in a great place to buy quality baits and tackle.

If you look a few posts down in the International Fishing Reports section, there is a thread about bass fishing in Okinawa.  Most of the information is 7 years old, but there are some updates from people there more recently.

Okinawa isn't a great place for freshwater lures, but if you head up to Tokyo, there are a few great shops....Just save up, first.  I walked in with $500, just for lures, and walked out wishing I had brought more money.
Yes, that is a gator in my profile picture, but I was trying to catch a bass, so it counts!
