Re: Fishing in the Eastern Med

Thanks for the replies. And the photos!
As usual it seems the middle way is best. I've just set up 2 handlines with 100 kg line and wire traces. A few of my favorite lures, and strike bungees. Small bag of tricks maybe = nice fish. We'll see.

Re: Fishing in the Eastern Med

How do folks handle the drag from the boat sailing/motoring when trying to reel in a fish? If I let the boat keep sailing, the pull of the fish plus the boat's speed is too much if the fish is more than small. If I try to stop the boat, a Chinese fire drill ensues and the fish can get away and/or some thing/one gets broken/hurt. If I am close hauled, I have had success in tacking over to a heave-to position, however if I am on a broad reach or run, the sails are not properly trimmed and that method doesn't work very well. Does anyone have a better technique?

Good luck! I used a medium size Rappala diver on a 20 meter lead and dropped 40 meter of line. Boat speed 6 kots. Caught our Sword fish during a feeding session, so keep a watch over the water as they usually feed at the surface.

Re: Fishing in the Eastern Med

You will be sailing one of the better places to fish. There is a regular run of tuna off the coast of Sounion, South of the tip of Kea, and around Kythnos. We catch them and have found that the more often we put the lines in the water, the more often we catch something.

But it's not like the Atlantic. We slay them there. Yes, I'm bragging.
