Caught 2 small cerviolis in Mellieha Bay this morning. It's the best thing to do at the moment when it's so windy and you have a small boat like mine!

What did you catch them with ?

ciappinu

White small rubber octopuses from Armor, the common ones. I find them best for Cervjol. WIll be going again this weekend if the weather persists.

Not really no, they need another 2 weeks of feeding. Which kind of Sawrell are you talking about exactly?

I must admit I never knew they grew so much. Do you know a good way of catching them?

there are two good methods i use which are
1 tie up with the pens and fish for vopi
once you catch a few hook one upand cast it out with a running float and wait

2 troll slowly using small lures (5cm) or live bait around the pens

Ok. I'll definitely try them. I never caught a Sawrella ta l-Imperjal. My friend caught lots of Sawrell last weekend during the night, big ones. Next to the St.Paul's Bay Awrat farms.
