Japanese are no.1 squid-loving people in the world. A half of the catch in the world is said to be consumed by Japanese.
That is why many Japanese do squid-fishing.
Many Sword-tip squids are caught in the Sea of Japan in the summer.
They are lured by Egi in the depth of 50m water offshore.
You can get large one in the size of more than 40 cm, and they really strongly pull.
