Hey all, I just got back from a really fun fishing trip to Busan. What an awesome city - the beaches and seafood were incredible.

One thing that totally blew me away was the Jagalchi Fish Market. It's massive, with hundreds of stalls selling all kinds of fresh catches. This article does a great job describing it: https://www.remotelands.com/travelogues ... obsession/.

The market comes alive around dawn each day as all the fishing boats come in. You can watch the daily auctions, which are really competitive. Later, the stall owners called "ajummas" sell the seafood. They're formidable bargainers but also so friendly.

I mostly fished from the beaches, which were stunning. Caught sea bass and blue crabs using topwater lures while enjoying the scenery. The locals were very welcoming too - one fisherman shared some great spots with me.

If you're ever in the area, I really recommend checking out Busan. The seafood, scenery and people made it one my favorite fishing destinations.

It sounds like you had an amazing fishing trip to Busan, @doingitwithubs! On my visit to Busan, I also went to the Jagalchi Fish Market. It is a lively and busy area for enjoying the local seafood culture. Some vendors can speak English and are really friendly. However, I haven't experienced fishing in Busan myself. Fishing from the stunning beaches and catching sea bass and blue crabs must have been a truly memorable experience. The warmth of the locals and the beauty of the scenery truly make Busan a standout destination for fishing enthusiasts. Thank you for sharing your wonderful Busan adventure!

It really was an amazing experience. I have to give a shout-out to my guide Changwoo from https://gowithguide.com/korea/busan - he was incredibly helpful in planning my time there. He recommended I check out the Jagalchi Market and also suggested some great beaches to try fishing. He even provided me with maps of the areas marking good spots. I'll definitely be back in Busan to do some more fishing. Such a great city!
