You will find information about the species you can catch, how to get, locations, tips and regulations. I saw a group of middle aged anglers, at Luton Airport, drinking and talking about their fishing adventures in different countries while I was waiting for my flight to Larnaca. I said hello and asked what species of fish they are dreaming of catching in Cyprus. They replied all together "the biggest fish in the sea" and we all laughed. As we chatted more and more, I noticed that none of them knew they actually could catch lots of fish in the reservoirs as well. They didn't even know freshwater fishing is possible on this tiny and dry Mediterranean island. To be honest, it didn't surprise me. Because, most of the people I talk about fishing in Cyprus have never heard about these amazing dams which are full of perch, carp, zander, bass,

How Giant Trevally Attacks Birds

Image
Have you ever seen a big fish hunting birds? There are some fishes in Amazons and some other tropical rivers and lakes that eat fish, I have seen it. They simply attack them if there is a little bird bathing or swimming. But this one is very different. Giant Trevally in tropical flats chase the birds to catch them as part of their speed and hunting games. They don't actually eat them. There are a lot of delicious bait already where they cruise everyday. As you know we use big poppers to catch GT and when people ask why we pick the big and shiny ones, I start explaining first of all what kind of species Giant Trevally are.  Now I don't need to talk hours about it. This short BBC documentary tells us a lot about what the GTs are after. I bet many of you have never seen these gorgeous predators doing such an acrobatic jumps before. Absolutely captivating. My Name is Fish but I never attack the birds like these GTs. Enjoy one of the greatest show from the azure water

Fishing Catfish With Live Bluegill Bait

Image
Live Bluegill Bait For Flathead Catfish Another successful catfish catch with live bluegill. You know, flathead catfish are carnivores, they like fresh meat. So it prefers live prey and the poor bluegill is one of the flathead's most favourite meals. Day or night, sunny or rainy, if you are planning to catch decent size flatheadcatfish, you need to find a good spot to grab some bluegills where you have to keep them alive or hook them up as soon as you land them because they don't stay alive too long out of water. WHAT SIZE OF BLUEGILL BAIT FOR FLATHEAD CATFISH Logically and obviously the bigger bait brings the bigger fish. But it's always like this, especially in freshwater. Majority of the catfish species actually are lazy predators. It doesn't like chasing the prey. Even a huge flathead can just lay on the bottom of the lake or river and wait for a silly small size fish to pass in front of its mouth. And it swallows the bait with its large mouth. So, the live
