Hi there, my husband and 3 mates went fishing with Ladyboss last night for 5 hours to try their luck, the skipper tried everything (fish finder) and going to 9 miles out but no luck, not a single bite on any of 7 lines. The man was so upset that when they got back into Girne harbour he gave my husband a 10kg frozen tuna, this was duly sawn up with a woodsaw and placed back into my freezer. The head alone will feed the cats for a couple of days and I got lots of fish stock for curries etc.



My point is that these 4 blokes spent 200 for this trip and I could have gone to Hur Deniz and bought a tuna as big as me and still had change.



And they cannot wait to go again!!! Ah well, its a man thing. But is it now the wrong time for fishing for tuna?

Please let me know what you think

Try some Aniseed flavoured "Gaviscon" on your bait - preferably prawn. It attracts any fish like crazy, and you'll have a big fish BBQ tonite!! Just a few drops.

P.S. I notice many locals use small hooks, you need a big hook to hook a big fish. Simples.

That's why aliens from another universe will never understand the human race! Who for the love of God decided that this combination was worth a go? The mind boggles...

Well it is not called Halibut, I don't know the local name. Same family, looks similar. At Bogaz fish restaurants they call it Halibut, for us English to understand what sort of fish it is I suppose.

This link gives a complete list of marine species for Cyprus:-



http://www.fishbase.org/Country/CountryChecklist.php?c_code=196&vhabitat=saltwater&csub_code=



....and then click the 'show photos' box. You may be able to identify the "halibut".



Anyway it is interesting for fisherman to see what species are around Cyprus.

Its an Ebook, Lots of top information on fishing from the shore, also fishing from a boat.

Lots of pages, lots of info, few pictures,

Very Good Read for those involved in fishing.

Actually what you need is "extract of aniseed", but this is no longer easily available in UK or here. So I tried the Gaviscon (aniseed flavor). Pulls the fish in like no tomorrow. I kid you not! Anyway, I won't be suggesting it again on here. I'm catching all the fish we and our friends can eat, magic buana!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Geoff,



Is this shore fishing you're talking about?

Can I use your tip on a lure from a boat?

No - the use of aniseed is for 'static bait' only, and is highly illegal in UK and some countries in Europe - but Geoff is spot-on with this hot tip - it really works goodo, although I've only tried it in freshwater lakes and river holes. If the lure is a 'spoon', that you jiggle up and down, aniseed works, but you'll need to mix it with something like 'Marmite', which helps it stick to the lure. Otherwise, soak worms, or maggots, or bread, in a solution of aniseed. The bloody fish'll nearly jump into the boat for ya's!

Hi Roy,



Sounds like the bizz.

A hollow lure or small bag filled with this jizzum might do the trick trolling, as it might leave a chum trail!

'JIZZUM', Vaughan - with yours you might even hook a mermaid!
