Fishing off the Mediterranean coast has a number of peculiarities, from location and time of fishing up to characteristics of marine fish, and not only fish – for example, in the Mediterranean Sea there are squid, which are caught at nightfall, with the help of outboard lamps, and a spinning with a plastic shrimp bait, which serve as a tackle.

It is important to choose the right equipment for fishing. Now fishermen are offered a great variety of inertial reels, baytranners and Exceler reels; fluorocarbon fishing lines, flies for fly fishing, leger rigs handy for catching all species of fish, and fish strings for keeping and carrying the catch.

Bottom tackles for feeder fishing should be mentioned separately. They consist of combined high-tech components: a rod with a sensitive tip, Power Pro multifilaments, a fixed-spool reel and a feeder, fixed at the end of the fishing line.

All of these forms and techniques of fishing have been successfully used for sea fishing in Israel. For example, barracuda, this “sea pike” is caught in ports, near reefs or in shallow water at low tide, by means of fly fishing, or in the open sea with the help of a spinning.

Grouper

Grouper, or a stonebass – is a predatory fish that lives in grots and underwater caves; it can also be seen among coral reefs or rocks. Skills of underwater hunting with a harpoon are of use when fishing a stonebass. This type of fishing is extremely popular in Israel.

Fishing in Kinneret

Lake Kinneret (also known as Lake Tiberias or Gennesaret or the Sea of Galilee) – is a real diamond in the crown of the nature of Israel. Stable sunny weather and warm crystal clear water are perfect conditions for successful fishing. No wonder, that according to the legend, Apostle Peter used to fish here. The lake is home to freshwater fish – carp, catfish and barbel.

How to Fish a Carp

The most coveted prey for anglers – is a delicious carp, no wonder in ancient China dish of this fish was considered to be an imperial delicacy. One of the most effective types of fishing – is fishing with a ‘hair’ rig with the help of boils. They are protein bait balls having different smells, which depend on the type of a fragrant. Tackle for distance casting, a match rod, in particular, and a so-called shock-leader, is good for catching a carp – owing to this device there is no risk of tearing a fishing line when casting.

Barbel attracts fans of game fishing with its strength and agility, it is very cautious and cunning. Barbel is caught at night, by means of bottom fishing, with the use of a sliding sinker. Barbel is especially tasty when smoked, and its balyk is considered a delicacy.

Catfish is the most successful prey of a spinner fisherman. The powerful predator is nocturnal, so it should be caught at sunset or at night, by means of leger rigs or artificial lure – a tarred cord, with long leashes with hooks tied to them. The long tail is the fattest and the tastiest part of the catfish, in the old days people used to cook famous coulibiacs and small pies (‘rasstegays’) of it.

For successful fishing do not forget about … the moon, which means -about its well-known impact on the tides – the fact that the peak of probability of biting accounts for the apogee of the tide. However, at low tide a fisherman can find what to do as well: this time it is the best to look for sea worm – excellent bait for any kind of fish.
