“London Bill” fished Macenas beach and rocks again this week with mixed results. One day not a bite or take and the next he bagged up. When the fish were behaving themselves he caught sea bass, palomete and Atlantic scad while spinning. Inshore bream such as dorada, cow and striped were caught bottom or float fishing. Meagre were had spinning but only small fish and nowhere near the weight they apparently grow to. Just imagine hooking the equivalent of a 110lb sea bass! Wow. Spinning also captured a couple of decent sea bass weighing about a kilo. (Well it’s good for here!) Popping produced nothing and I think the autumn months will provide better sport.
“Kenolo” fished the beach at Pozo during the week and although he didn’t catch anything he thinks the mark near the La Frontera Restaurant has potential. Ken was able to walk out about 70 yards before being pushed over by waves. He says the bottom is good and he’ll try fishing there again soon. Ken spoke to a holiday maker that had been out on a boat from Garrucha and a lot of salmometes (red mullet) were caught. I’ve only ever seen one caught before and that was by my grandson “beachcomber H” last year.
“Captain (Duncan) Sunshine” and “Captain Rory” took out a party of six mates (Two boats) who were celebrating Tony’s 70th birthday I hear. They fished in front of the River Abajo and Garrucha Marina. The sea was flat early on but it wasn’t long before the inevitable happened, the wind came up and the anchors were needed. It wasn’t a prolific day by any means and they landed 40 to 50 fish between them but nothing worth mentioning.
Just heard from “Captain Brian Cuba” who is in the Uk, he’s pulling his hair out and has the shakes, says he can’t wait to get back and out fishing.
“Baza Barry” fished most of the week at Negratin and even camped out a couple of nights but didn’t fish during the hours of darkness. He and his mates caught shed loads of carp and barbel and at one point were catching the same fish twice in a matter of minutes. Although I’ve seen it happen before, two fish were caught on one hook. Competition for food was so intense; being caught wasn’t putting fish off feeding. The biggest fish caught was by Barry’s mate John; he landed a 12lb common carp in the early hours before the smaller fish got back into the swim. Barbel were landed to 4lbs and Barry had some small trout and black bass while spinning during quiet spells. Barry would have liked to take his friends to his favourite lake in Murcia but unlike Andalucia (using our loophole) it’s not possible to get Murcia licenses without an NIE document copy.
Talking about licenses, beach and boat licenses should be back now and Andalucian coarse licenses are hopefully going in soon.
“Flobalob Pete” has just returned from a few days on the Ebro and caught carp to just over 40lbs. Small cats were also caught but nothing big which was ok because like me he can’t stand the slimy monsters.
For further information on any of the above or to find out about beach, boat or coarse fishing licenses, see John at the Beachcomber Bar Restaurant on Mojacar Playa or tel 950 473 099. In case of difficulty reaching me (Probably out fishing) ask staff for my mobile number.
Tight Lines, Beachcomber John.
