dont need ideas, just need info as some Maltese fisherman have raped these waters through illegal fishing and bad fisheries management by the government, coming from Australia where fisheries are managed strictly and properly there is no need to ask about when to catch fish as fish are there 365 days per year more than you can catch, for no other reason than there are limits on how many you can catch per person, here I see MFC coming back with 2 buckets full of Lampuki and in M'schlok last Sunday there was two MFC fisherman bringing in Swordfish in broad daylight without a care in the world

If you manage to go you stand a good chance of catching some nice one not too far from land this time of year.
The more you go the greater chance you have and even have the most possible hooks since this time of year the weather will only be good on little ocassions so you have the best chance.

If your having good catches keep it constant.
I dont know from where you go out fishing (I am assuming imsida), but from Halfar - gnejna area  they catch swordfish from 2-5 miles mostly. They come in close dont worry i have friends who lay lines from land using an imrejkba

no Vanuatu! No way you would get that much here, lucky to get any I will forecast with what I have seen, Vanuatu I had to stop as the boat would carry no more. Australia its against the law to catch with longline
