Hello everyone !I got another opportunity to visit Bahrain and to to do what i love ..fishing
.This is my third visit and bang in the middle of my vacation.Last two years i managed to catch palm sized fish on prawn and squid.This time i planned to catch something different.First four days i tirelessly threw spoon lures from the shore .I varied my retrieve with pauses but didn't hook anything.The lures were chased down by the occasional seagull and also had some follows by ballyhoos.I also rigged up a ballyhoo with a single circle hook .The whole fish was eaten except the head and the hook!Next two days rigged ballhoo with two hooks but no takes.Today i planned to live bait breams from the shore.Live baiting was done on a fish finder .The one bream i hooked with a 3/0 circle tail end.Three hours went by and only the front part of the fish was bitten.Then today afternoon i was catching bream when i boat went by and i lost my hooks ,swivel and weight thanks to the boat propeller
.went back home to re rig again.I once again live baited bream on two circle hooks but sadly the fish was attacked from below.
.I have been dreaming of coming here for the last two months but the fish here seem to outsmart me each time
Please do advice.Watching the birds dive into the water is a real treat .
