There are specific months in which pelagic species of fish migrate to
waters around the Maltese Islands thus making it possible to organize
trips in order to target these fast swimming and powerful predatory fish
that always give a good fight to the angler and get the adrenaline
running as soon as the reels are heard screaming due to a strike.
The most common species are Albacore tuna (mid June till end of August)
and Dorado also known as Dolphin fish (end of September till December)
Extreme - Abyss Fishing
At abyssal depths ranging from 200mt up to 700/800mt it is possible to fish for a number of deep dwelling species. The most common are Red Bream, Grouper, Stabot Fish, Dog Fish, Scorpion fish and Mediterranean cod.
In order to fish effectively at such great depths specialized
fishing tackle and equipment must be used in order to reel in fish that
may vary from 1/2 Kg Red bream up to 20kg+ Groupers or even the
occasional seven-gilled shark.
With this method of fishing one can never be sure which fish will take the bait next and the depth of the sea with all it’s mystery always reserve surprises and memorable captures.
This method of fishing is done all year round though certain months of the year are more productive than others.
Some predatory species such as Amberjack, Dentex & Barracuda can be found patrolling shallower waters around reefs relatively closer to shore. By using live bait and trolling at slow speed, around these reefs we can come across some large specimen fish that offer great sport to even the most experienced of anglers.
Also in this case the fishing action is carried out using light tackle which offers a great deal of fun when playing such powerful fish. Several times the fish will either try to get loose of the hooks or find refuge in cracks along the reef but with the help of the skipper and the angler’s ability, from the moment the rod bends, that will be the start of a long battle with the fish.
This is a very versatile form of fishing and can be applied practically
to target all game fish. According to what bait is used, the location or tackle set-up, you can end up having from a 2lb Black Bream to a
200lb + Bluefin at the other end of the line. It
is important to note
that fishing for Bluefin is strictly within EU and
Due to the surprisingly large variety of species available with this kind of fishing most of the times the angler will not know what will take his bait next. This ’unknown’ factor raises more the anticipation and all eyes are always on the line that from one second to another can start screaming line out of your reel as the fish swims away at very high speed.
Introduced in the Mediterranean region just little more than a decade ago, this style of fishing has successfully been adopted to target several species of fish including Amberjack, Snapper, Barracuda, Grouper and many other predatory species. This method is as rewarding as it is hard to practice. In fact the continuous and frantic action by which the action of fishing must be carried out is advised only to seasoned anglers who are familiar with this style of fishing.
