First Competition ‘Ellevi Mullet league’ 2014 1st Leg.

Hooked On Fishing Club Malta

First Competition ‘Ellevi Mullet league’ 2014 1st Leg.

The 1st Leg of this Competition was held on the 7th September 2014 at Marsascala. This league is only aimed at catching Mullet hence it is more difficult than other competitions due to it is limited to one species Mullet & 19 anglers competing.

We all met up at 06:00 am as usual everyone discussing & eagerly awaiting to see which peg will be assigned to them. Once the allocation of the pegs where drawn everyone started rigging up the rods & preparing the ground bait.

By 07:00 am everyone was ready & wait for the signal to commence fishing to start ground baiting & casting away. It did not take long to start seeing the first Mullets being caught & other were getting bites but not managing to catch any & on occasions there were a few that were managing to get away after getting snagged in the boats mooring ropes.

After a short while the wind direction changed to Northerly winds & as most anglers say the fish just do not bite. In the latter part of the competition there were further bites of this beautiful species Mullet that most of the competitors would tell you that this is the most sought after fish the target with pole fishing. The Competition ended at 11:00 am. 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.

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

The winners of this 1st Leg Ellevi Mullet Competition were Alexander Spiteri , in 2nd place Dorian Formosa & in 3rd place Raymond Farrugia. All we can say that this is the first Leg out of 3 Legs & that the League is still open for anyone possibly to win. 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.
