Tsunade sends out Naruto under the guise of a top-secret mission to keep him hidden away from the Akatsuki. Naruto leaves Konoha with Aoba, Yamato, Guy along with three other unknown shinobi. They are however, held up at the pier due to a report of a monster attacking ships causing nobody to want to set sail. When Guy and Aoba go out to see if they can solve the problem, they encounter a giant marlin and a fisherman named Yūsuke who lost his father to the marlin and wanted to avenge him. On the next day, Yūsuke is given a boat and a fishing pole, and after much struggle, he finally catches the marlin with his own strength. After that Naruto and the others finally set sail for the Land of Lightning.
