Hi to all members.This is my first post even though I have been following the discussions for a couple of months since I am new to fishing and found all topics of great interest.

Let me introduce my fishing history first.
I used to fish a lot inside the harbour with a rod when I was a kid but then stopped and restarted about two years ago when I bought an old 13ft bahri form a friend who had not used for it. I mainly use it in summer in the MScala area and enjoy myself a lot even the catches consit of small fish.TH

Thanks Skip and Kempy for the welcome.
 ???I have so many questions that I would like to ask.
Here go the first two - what to fish for in the Mscala area in summer (May - Sept)and which are the best spots.
                             -the other is re planti fishing.On several occassions I saw people coming in with plamti catches from the fish farm area. What gear,tackle and technique to use to catch these fish?

Thanks in advance

Thanks Kempy and Busumark.

This leads to another question re plamti.What size of hook and line to use for such a fish and where do I buy the kavalli?

u can use mustad no9 tal label hamra if the plamti are more than 2kg.if you dont use a lot these hooks u can buy something similar but in a small packet. if ur using a rod u can use line 60mm but if you are not using a rod better use line 80mm or 90mm. u can buy some kavalli from marsaxlokk on sunday because otherwise you have to buy a box from pixkerija but you will have a lot just to go for plamti.
