hi guys

I am a great fan of fishing for this bream, the best set up and method i found is
a 4.2mt feeder rod coupled with a 60 feeder reel
the reel is filled with 200mt 20 diameter spectra
bottom trace is  1.5 mts of 20 or 25 fluoro carbon with a gamakatzu 3113 red worm hook size 1
method is running ledger (comba tigri)
bait is king rag worm or shel fish

i collect some sea urchins and crush them with bread and bits of fish shape them into balls and freeze them.
i go to the area i am going to fish at about 6 pm, cast out and check for current then i try and launch the bait balls as close to the lead as possible.
i bait the area every half hour for the first 3 hours then 1 every hour.

my best is 3 of over 2kg

did anyone find a better method or one that works as well

any particular places you know for giltheads, maybe around the south of the island?  I used to catch giltheads at Kalkara creek; those were the days...

Have you tried in the St. Paul's Bay fish farms? There are many!

deep sea - try Birzebbuga port. Be quick as they already started throwing nets now that summer has ended and swimmers are no more frequenting shores.

I managed some nice giltheads in good numbers over the past few weeks.

Last weekend I landed one nearing the 1kg Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

Simon, the running ledger is great, sometimes I also use a feeder made of mesh chicken wire instead of lead weight.

I found the running float also interesting for Giltheads especially when fishing shallow waters (not more than 5 mtrs) you will be amazed at how the float moves when the giltheads have the bait in their mouth, especially when using starlights at night.
