Let me Give you some brief info on the fish and how to catch it...Vopa (bogue) Can grow up to a foot! and a total  wight of 500g, Lives Close to the coast especialy in late summer, To catch this fish use a size 12 hook with a small float and a light rod, As bait you can use bread,prawns or (hniex)..It is caught mostly at sunset.

Bongu guys!

Last I fished for vopi in Exiles (Sliema) was November time and as someone mentioned in an earlier thread it was pretty good time. Can one still fish for vopi now?

cheers

Work is for people who do not know how to fish

This year there was a shortage of Vopi. The only few that was caught was from Popeyes Village. Now it had dissapeared. During this time we used to catch some from Bahar ic-caghaq and Qawra, (Ta Fra Ben)

sarda is the best ...... try fishing the vopa as it is not always evident that there is vopi around ... sometimes it is mid water other times it is completely at the bottom so try different levels ...... korean worms are good but not the ideal ...... vopi prefers shrimps as bait.
