where exactly is chicken area please?


On the right hand side when your facing the sea in the parking area there is a wide rocky area sticking out and another small 'island' nxt to this outcrop..Thats "ic-chicken"
Its gnejna's "slipway" where boats are launched from,there is also a bunch of signs saying its illegal to park there.


the chicken area , is the slip way , this saturday i saw a good number of nice sized vopi , while spearfishing .
If I give you a fish I'll be feeding you once, if i'll show you how I caught it I'll be feeding you for ever.


It seems that this year the big vopi is going to be good. It being seen around malta in different places.


thanks, guys.
any idea how deep the water is there (at chicken!)?


Not much at the edge maybe 15-16ft or approx 5m on the side facing the small island and a bit more on the other side say around 7m-9m or there about's  :)


Any ideas where there are big vopi up north please?
I'd rather be fishing.....

What are the best times of the day for nice vopi? Do they bite late evening/early night?


the  good time to vopi is in 11:00a.m to3:00p.m in he s season , and i caught the vopi in summer they was about 15cm, and the time can be different
