Hooked On Fishing Club Malta
2nd Leg Singles Hooked on Fishing Club League , Sponsored by Xuereb Installations Ltd.
This Competition was held on the 07th June 2014 on a Public Holiday at ‘Qbajjar’ in Gozo. This match was completely different from the usual ones in Malta due to we all had to get up earlier & start making our way to ‘Cirkewwa’& get a ferry to the Island of Gozo.
This Venue was chosen during the club’s registration meeting where we all the members had a vote to see if we wanted to have Gozo included in our Singles Competition .
All the participants met at ‘Cirkewwa’ at 05:00hrs to enable us to make the 05:45 ferry. Around 05:30 the ferry started to load up with cars. We all took advantage to go up to the ferry’s deck to have a look at the sea & try to spot any fish around the ferry. In fact we managed to spot a few Sea Bream & everyone was commenting on how they would try to fish for one. During the ferry trip fishing was obviously the main topic that was being talked about (Our Hobby). Once arrived in Gozo we all drove over to ‘Qbajjar’ and soon after we started assigning pegs as per the draws that were held. The atmosphere was as usual just like one big family & everyone took their posts. Immediately all anglers started to rig up the gear & prepping the ground bait for this match.
The start signal was given at 07:30hrs where all the participants started using all sort of techniques & bait, although the seas where very clear & not many fish where biting. As time went on there was a slight westerly breeze when at that time there was a couple of particular pegs that were managing to catch descent size fish especially Parrot fish, every now & then the other pegs were seeing some activity too. The Competition ended at 11:30hrs.
The usual gathering at the end of the match whilst all the fish were being weighed in with everyone discussing what went on that morning, learning from each other knowledge experience & techniques used.
