I have lately invested in some spinning gear for spinning from land and also got a large variety of lures. The only thing is, i'm tired of catching barracuda, i'm now interested in catching some tumbrell, spnotti, cerviol/accjol if thats always possible.

If anyone could provide fishing spots, what types of lures the fish go for and also the times for fishing the different types of fish, it would be kindly appreciated  Smiley

At this time of the year it is very difficult to catch the kind of fihes that you have mentioned. The best times for these fish are from September till December, sometimes even in January. You can try both harbours. Eventually you will see may boats trolling for these kind of fish. Anothe good spot is in Gozo, il-Qbajjar, where lots of Kubrit are caught during the month of October. Spinners and red head are the most commonly used.

Tumbrell isn't caught from land or maybe once in a blue moon 10x to martinb.

how far out would you need to cast to be in with a chance of catching anything, i had 1 hour practice near fra ben (hotel side) using a 9gram yo-zuri minnow and am limited to 40 yards, (thats what it says on box), so do i need heavier lures, Huh Huh Huh

mike you need at least 20 grms so you will cast far remember the more area you cover the more chance you have. I am not saying you cannot catch with that 9 grms okay?

Imsell the most important thing is to match the lure weight with the rods casting weight. If the rod is 15gr to 50gr you have to use lures in that range of weight. Using a lighter lure and you end up with a very short throw and very good chance of birds nests using a heavier lure may result in damaging the rod. Having the wind from behind you will help you increase the distance when using lures on the lower weight range, some times by 1/3 or 1/2 of the distance.

go to TONY'S or Notanic in Bugibba.

they have some nice lures. You should be looking for something 7-10cm.

on the front where the Mcdonalds is located. They look like souvenier shops but are quite equipped with various tackle.

you'll recognize them since they display rods outside the shop.
