Title: First post - new to the forum
Post by: gabaj on December 10, 2006, 11:16:05 CET
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 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.
