Hooked On Fishing Club Malta 3rd Leg Doubles 2014 Competition.


Hooked On Fishing Club Malta 3rd Leg Doubles 2014 Competition.

This Competition was held on the 2nd March 2014 at Senglea. Commenced at 07:00 & finished at 11:00. In this Doubles League Match we had 40 Anglers competing.

We all met up at 06:00 next to the ‘Macina’ at Senglea where the pegs where allocated for the teams. Same as every other day when the ‘club’ members meet you can hear them all talking about what they all love doing fishing & giggling on some mishaps that could of happened to them. Very nice to see such a big group of anglers so close and sharing each other’s ideas & techniques & all ready to help each other. On the day this coincided with the Carnival weekend so we also had some members wearing wigs & fancy hats for the occasion.

Reason behind using Senglea as the venue was due to the warnings of strong winds & heavy rain that was forecasted. In fact the rain did not stop for the duration of the competition with a heavy shower around 08:00 lasted till about 09:00. Since there was no danger for the anglers the competition kept on going which proved more challenging for them , but persistence & continuously kept on fishing to using different techniques. Although the anglers gave their best shot there was not much fish caught however the total fish caught was just over 13Kilos, with most of the fish being Annular Bream. The most awaited fish by the anglers was the Mullet which was not the case as this species is normally later on the day. In fact none of the 40 Competitors weighed in any Mullet.

After the fish was weighed in & released again all anglers gathered like usual discussing the fishing events of the day whilst eating some homemade cake & coffee, good to see everyone together as one big family as this ‘Club’ s main intention is to have everyone sharing & learning about different techniques & enjoying each other’s company.

Unfortunatly there was some issues with the pictures taken & only managed to save a few.

Winners of the match day where presented with Vouchers from our sponsor ‘Fishin Fever tar Rabat’

The winners of this Competition was team ‘Dolphins’ with 1 Kilo & 960 grams , in 2 nd place team ‘The Catchers’ with 1 Kilo & 740 grams & 3rd place team ‘ Ta Pulis’ with 1 Kilo & 140 grams. Total fish caught 13 Kilos & 040 grams which is a good result for this time of year. Wish to emphasize that all the fish caught where all released. The Club practices catch and release in order to ensure sustainability and to avoid overfishing of fish from our waters.
