How to Catch Sea Bream Fish
How to Catch Sea Bream? Sea Bream. No matter what you call it, the taste of the meat of this fish, which is the bully of the rocks and stony areas at the bottom of the sea, and its behavior on the fishing line when caught are among the legends.
This fish, which could be found in our country even in the Black Sea 20 years ago, can only be found in certain quantities in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas due to sea pollution and illegal fishing (trawl, forbidden time hunts).
Sea bream, whose jaw structure is hard and equipped with crushing teeth, mostly feeds on crustaceans, rock organisms, and small fish that it can reach by navigating around the rocks. Despite being a predatory fish, it is lazy and waits for mobile prey to come to its feet.
It prefers to swallow the baby fish all at once but continues to feed in a way worthy of its reputation, by crushing the crustaceans with its jaws like a human cracks the core. This fish, which can grow up to 50-60 centimeters in length, can reach 10 kilograms in weight. However, in our country’s waters, there are usually around 5-7 kilos of trophies.
Like every valuable fish, sea bream is included in the size classification. As you can see, in this commercial situation, there are 3 different classes lidaki, sea bream, and henna. Since the aspect ratio is close to each other, it is usually expressed in terms of weight.
Large sea bream up to 1 kg, which is called portion size, is subject to the next classification as their cheeks start to turn red. But regardless of its size, the sea bream is a warrior fish and does not give up easily. He continues to fight until he is out of the water from hitting the fishing line.
It may not be able to break a fishing rod equipped with good knots, but it will drag you from excitement to excitement with headshots in a way that you cannot easily wind your reel.
There are obvious color differences between sea breams, which are also grown on farms established in the seas because of their great commercial value, and those who spend their lives at the bottom of the sea. Another issue is that the fish grown on the farm and offered to the market must be the same size as if they were measured with a ruler.
I wrote this section because I want you to be careful about the behavior intended to confuse people by referring to the phrase “angling fish”, which is sold at exorbitant prices under the name of “sea bream” (whatever that means, farmed fish seem to grow in different water) in the markets.
Which Feeds Are Used?
Sea Bream’s menu includes many foods, from shellfish to chicken. Among the baits I use the most, my priority is chicken meat and crab, but as always, you should also consider the diet of the fish in the region where you will hunt. However, it can provide you with productive hunts for shrimp, leech, fish meat, and squid/octopus meat. I do not recommend hunting, but if you are interested, you can even see Lidakis eating bread.
Fishing Rod to Use
Whether the fishing line you need to use is for boat fishing or from the shore, without exaggerating the thickness, a bottom fishing line prepared with 3 hooked 30/35 line between 5-1 and no. 5-1 is sufficient. The thick and sharp needle you will use is the most important factor for the result of this hunt.
Sea bream jaw is a strong and tough fish. If you use a fine needle, you can easily break it. If your needle is not as sharp as it should be, then the needle will either not enter the jaw completely or not at all. In both cases, the probability of losing the fish is high. I usually prefer brown short machete needles, I would like to point this out.
Where to Find?
If you are fishing from the shore, you should wait for the seasons when the sea bream approaches the shore. For example, sea bream, which can hunt around the Çanakkale Strait in autumn, will allow you to hunt efficiently on the Asos coastline in summer.
In summer, you can have the chance to hunt at any time of the day. The important detail here is the bait you will use. For fishing from boats, it would be correct behavior to use known stone and grit bearings, and if the bearing is not known, try to hunt in the fish finders detected by the fish finder. I can say that you can catch sea bream in many parts of the Aegean and Mediterranean, starting from Saros.
Tips and Considerations
- When hunting sea bream, which has a very hard jaw, be sure to scoop it out of the water.
- After the sea bream hits the line and is caught, control the fish and reel in your reel.
- Do not take the fish you caught in your palms, grasp it using two fingers from the edges. Dorsal fins can have undesirable consequences.
- Be very careful when removing the needle as its jaw and teeth are very strong.
- The places where the fish travel does not necessarily have to be deep because, in the months when they coast, they travel even in very shallow waters.
