OMA-BRAND TUNA Pole Fishing Observation Tour

The appeal of the tour

Tsugaru Strait is a serious fishery: it’s a battlefield where humans and huge
tuna face off! A genius tuna fisherman once said, “I do everything I can do,”
when fishing for the ocean’s natural gift, tuna. Schools of tuna fill this fast,
wavy fishery and hundreds of boats gather to fish for those shimmering,
black ocean diamonds. Normally, only local fisherman can get on the boat
so this is a very valuable tour that lets you feel what it’s li ke to fish in
Tsugaru Strait. With any luck, you’ll feel the heat of the tuna battle up close
and personal.
