    Default Some Mediterranean Sea bass

    Last saturday the 19 May, we are out for a sea session.
    It is a good seabass season this time of the year.
    As we have heard from other guys the fish starts taking after the sun is up.
    We decided to check out a piece of rocky beach next to Netanya(Israel).
    So we had a cup of tea and started to walk.
    Jimmy was fishing with spinning rod and topwater lures and I was fishing a fly.
    We find the first current, I have started with tandem of olive clouser no.6 hook and a small BMS fly above it.
    A good bite and first bass comes to visit.
    We have tried to catch some bream, without much success.Many bream are present, but we could not convince them to take a fly.
    On our end point is another good current, and the waves were starting to get a bit high to walk on the reef.
    2 good size bass one after another take my olive clouser.
    An we are on our way home.
    This is One great day...

    Nice fish! I hate to be a buzz kill but I have been told that you should never hold a fish like that (unless you don't plan on releaseing it) as it damages the ligaments etc in their mouths and they will probably die!

    i would think that holding it like that would be ok if its supported under its belly.....im sure if its true about the ligaments then all bass species would be extinct by now
    stephen is wishing he was fishing location x right now.......
