Hi guys

I am interested in doing some spinning from shore. I am COMPLETELY new to this fishing technique but it seems to be fun! Can anyone please recomand me some good lures which I can buy, and what type of fish is caught on them? And can you please tell me other important things that i need to keep in mind whilst spinning?

Thanks

It mostly depends for which type of fish you will be targeting and from where you will be fishing!

try the halco lures 40 or 55grams!!!!
and use a 0.40mm or thinner line....
you can get many kinds of fish from barracudas to dentex.....depends on how deep you let your lure sink before you start spinning...
all you need is alot of patience and luck!!!!!

@ SPITEC - since ia m new o spinning, right now I am not targeting any particular fish, just in general. Then when I get used to it, I will start targeting particular fish. Regarding fishing places I do not know some particular places which I can spin there. Probably in the area of Birzebbuga or Zurrieq. Thanks for your help.

@Spinner35 - Regarding the halco lures, are there some names of the lures which you think are best for a particular fish? Eg with that lure you can catch that type of fish. THanks a lot.

As you said you are a begginer.I would suggest you buy a spinning rod and a reel if you don't have them allready and a couple of different lures(3 or 4 differnt colours and diving depths).I would suggest to try different places because you cannot say where you are gone find some fish.I prefer to go early morning,a little bit before sunrise.It's not that easy to catch something spinning but never give up because you will be really satisfied when you catch something with this type of fishing.Good luck.

I can confirm this! Viva il munga lures! LOL Grin
@sajjiedf2
Basically as SPITEC said if you intend going around b'bugia & zurrieq area best if you buy a spinning rod & reel and a few lures and try an hour before sunrise or sunset as these are the best times to hook up a barracuda which is a good fish to get started on  Grin

As regards lure's there are many choices and differing opinions re colours etc depending on where your fishing and what your going after.
I can reccomend a couple of good "all rounder" lures which i always keep in my lure box..The Yo-zuri crystal minnow (& pin minnow's!) the blue/mackerel colour and the red head colour which is an awesome lure.Rapala x-rap's are also a very good lures to have and various colours work well fire tiger,blue/mackrel,red head..have a check on the forum as there are numerous topics about this.
Try using .35mm line (or braid equivilant) as you'll get a decent cast range on a light spinning rod set up... and finally the best peice of advice i can give you...Stick with it! Spinning is 90% perserverance! and the rest is up to the fish! or sometimes just plain,dumb luck!

Hi mike.d ta fra ben is not a bad area for spinning on yhe side of salini the part where most of the people go swimming is shallow but I caught a few cudas from there and on the other side is good for everything basicly.You never know at what distance you will find the fish but the further out you cast the better.40mt cast is very good considering 9gr lure.What do you think Martin?

Yep def for a 9g lure!!! Although casting distance will depend on what thickness of line your using too,don't go too light on line thickness as you might hit into a nice fish up there early in the morning at this time of year Grin
