Shore fishing pills: practical tips not to be mistaken

Almost all fishermen are convinced that the more you can cast the bait far, the better. In reality in shore fishing this is absolutely not true, especially in the summer months, when even the finest fish such as sea bream and murmur move close for reproduction. It is good to be aware of the morphology of the seabed in which we are fishing, in order to make the most of it. If we are in summer it is useful to take a ride in the water with the mask.

The mixed seabed , characterized by strips of sand mixed with rocks, are always the best ones, as they host large quantities of organisms that fish are looking for. If we are fishing in a seabed of this type, we are going to place our bait in the sand strip close to the rocks . If instead we are on a totally sandy beach , we recommend the use of two rods, one to probe the area immediately behind the wave step , and one instead as far as possible , and then shorten the distance until we find the ideal point .

RECOVER THE BAIT
When to retrieve the bait ? Knowing how to correctly answer this question means determining the fate of our shore fishing for better or for worse. In reality the answer changes according to the season in which we find ourselves and the bait we are using. It is necessary to start from the principle that fish are attracted both by the movement of our bait and by the smell it gives off when launched into the water. When these two factors (odor and movement) fail, the effectiveness of our bait will drop dramatically.

If we are fishing in the summer months , the water temperature will be high and the smell given off will spread very quickly, while in winter this process will be significantly slowed down. For this reason, in the first case it is recommended, unless there are signs of bites, to retrieve the bait every 15 minutes. In the second case instead every 20-25 minutes. Retrieving the bait after 2-3 minutes as many fishermen do is totally unnecessary and will only be a waste of time.

CHANGE THE BAIT
We have recovered the bait and this is intact or partially eaten. What to do? For the aforementioned reasons, even if our bait is intact, in reality it will have already lost much of its attractive power. For this reason, in shore fishing, unless the bait (like American and bibi) is still full of liquid inside, it is recommended to replace it with a new one. We try to make rather systematic launches , without changing continuously, since the smell emanating from the previous bait will still be used as a “groundbait” at the point where it was launched and therefore we can exploit it to our advantage.

Where does the fish we eat come from?
The consumption of fish is generally very popular for those who are following a diet, for those who follow a complete and genuine diet and for those who cannot do without it. It is on the genuine and on the authenticity that we want to dwell. The large consumption of fish leads us to often divert attention to the origin , yes, not all fish are the same and not all fish come from the same guaranteed place!

In reality, the fish we eat is the result of farms . The routine of farmed fish and the food it ingests have nothing to do with a fish that lives free in the sea. The properties we adore about fish, omega 3 , are assimilated by fish through meals based on other fish, plankton and algae.

Any fish fed in any other way will destroy personal nutritional value and it will be useless for us to include it in our meals. A farmed fish will not provide our body with any benefit . Many of the fish on the market today come from farms and unfortunately, as a rule, we sometimes fall into the temptation to buy it because it would cost us a bingo as fresh fish .

How to read the fish label
Always reading the labels and making it a habit can only help us. Whenever we find written bred in we know that the fish we are going to buy is better to put it on the counter. When, on the other hand, we find the catch written with the place of reference where it was caught, we can be sure that it is sea fish. In fact, we are sure that it is sea ​​fish , but which sea?

The situation of the seas only gets worse and the pollution is rampant, that’s why eating whole fish of all its peculiarities is increasingly difficult. The seas are full of heavy metals that threaten the organisms of fish and come to us who ingest them and who often risk incurring high health risks.

The best thing to do is to choose caught fish and always prefer small fish such as mackerel, sardines, anchovies, red mullets. The FAO area is normally always present on the fish labels.
