Title: Laham tas sega
Post by: Reelin on November 10, 2008, 09:59:30 CET
does any of you guys know if there is any way i can buy laham tas sega? i recently moved house and the local butcher said that he already gives to four other anglers so availability will be poor. I used to find it one of the best baits for mullet

If I were you I would try at big shops like chef's choice in marsa scala or prime meat in marsa. For sure they will have planty of that staff daily.

I never tried laham tas sega for mulett,but i know a lot of people who use it.Will surely giva it a try.

Laham tas sega is surely great for mulett but there and again i prefer farka as camkev said.


Title: Re: Laham tas sega
Post by: Reelin on November 10, 2008, 17:19:33 CET
semolina and smid are the same thing ganni....i believe.....

go ahead camkev give it a try it's worth while, the protein present in meat induceses some kiond of feeding frenzy and aty night the blood leaves a trail...the occationala gilthead and other breams are also hooked just like on farka last june i also got 2 nice strill at night...but still i must admit that farka is a killer bait.....

fisheye did you actually buy sega from them?...or you're just suggesting?


Title: Re: Laham tas sega

I might try it out as alf first,mix it with cefalu.

If the cutting machine left over (Tas-sega), is hard to get by, why not use ground meat mix with bread crumbs or flour put in a contaner and pound with a piece of wood like a pecil and mortal (meris) untill it becomes a paste. The bread/ flour will absorbe the juices and blood. It should make a good paste. Or else use the food processor at home, but don't tell HER I gave you the idea!!

When i use such bait i just take some (laham tas-sega) with me and just add some semolina (smid) on the place where i am fishing. i never prepare such poaste at home. there is no need!

@ reelin I am only suggesting, usually I used to get it from my local village butcher. Asking them will not harm. goodluck

Courtesy of KSFA Malta:

?Farka? : The best mullet bait secret.   

"Method:   

First and foremost the bread roll has to be the type rolled in snail shell form, one which has been formed in the shape of a snails shell. Fresh and cooked at the bakers, place the fresh roll in luke warm water and let the roll absorb the warm water, one can also use warm milk. Once soaked remove roll from liquid and without damaging the roll gently squeeze the roll between your hands slowly and gently removing the access liquid. Open out the dough to its original shape before its was formed into a snail like roll. This should look like a long sausage form length of dough. Prepare a dry towel and wrap the dough into the towel gently removing more of the liquid absorbed by the bread. Remove from the first towel and wrap into a second towel, leave roll wrapped in towel, place into a plastic bag and put into the refrigerator over night. The result will be a long length of stringy bread, with your fingers pick and pull a short length of this bread and hook it onto your hook as you would hook a worm. Leave some extra length hanging below the hook. The bread becomes very rubbery like when left overnight in the fridge and is presented excellently in the sea. Use the remaining liquid \ milk to add to your ground bait.

Try this, it really works well, as good as if not better than fresh sliced bread pinched on the hook. Which by the way is my second best option. It takes a while to get it right but once you get used to it you will not go back to anything else.
