We are going to Pernera next week and i will be keen to see any feedback you get.

My son (13) wants to try a bit of fishing from the rocks,we are both complete beginners but the FI law has set him up with a small telescopic rod and some lures,hooks etc.

To be honest he will probably get bored if we don't catch anything after 10 minutes,I think there are a few boat trips that go further out with all the equipment provided leaving from Protaras & Pernera.

the fish round shoreline all small in size about 4-6 inches from what ive seen snorkeling the gar fish a little bit bigger but difficult to hook the shape of their mouths.take light tackle small hooks, the smaller the better say size 18 and smaller a float about 3bb in size should be fine the fish attack your bait in shoals so the float will bob up and down like mad so its trial and error when to strike to hook a fish.when i first went never had any luck fishing as not many fish about so now dont bother but they seem to do well from the small island off fig tree bay the right hand part is where most fish from you have to swim over to it but is easy enough just keep your bread dry.bread the bait of choice keep it cool so it doesnt dry out in heat just a small ball on hook, also seen them fishing along the boardwalk between pernera and protaras near cains bar.
