Title: "New" to Spearfishing
Post by: jon109 on August 16, 2007, 17:52:14 CET
Hi there, I?ve been a member in this forum for two week now and I really like this forum! What I really like is that everyone is open and the pros helping us beginners.

I used to go fishing and spearfishing a few years ago but now I am back again. I tried fishing (coast casting) but I didn?t have luck yet! However I enjoy mostly spearfishing! This weekend I am going to Gozo and hopefully I will get some fish from there :) Will show you my catch if I get any!!

So wish me luck ? will post something later on next week?

Nice Bream jon, for the Maltese waters, it's a nice one.  :o :o :o

The biggest I had caught was of 4.5kg but if I remember SimonG had caught bigger. I hear ed that they had being caught around Malta from around 2 weeks. Willing to find some of them because it's nice to improve technique with them.

We can try our spot again Simon, but so far the next few days the weather is looking crappy, high winds.

I saw a large shoal of Tuna, 5 miles out from Marsalforn today. They where wrecking a shoal of small bait fish. Tuna where in 10-15kg range, maybe some even a little bigger. I would expect them to be passing by Mellieha today, however its too windy to go out!
