Welcome Pierluigi. Many Bass down that way??

Bass is a fall/winter fish here in Italy....this is pelagic fishes season......unluckily now I'm working all the day every day (I work in a holyday resort) so I can only prepare my LRF new tackle for September....:wink:...I'm falling in love with this new (for me) fishing.

Welcome to the Forum Pierluigi. It's good to hear from another International member. Where in Italy do you live and what is the fishing like? I am sure there are a lot of members like myself who would be interested in reading about the fishing in Italy.

I live in the far South of Italy, at the south end of Puglia. Bass is our fishing goal in fall and winter....we try it especially in low deepness and among waves both on the rocks and beaches. In the last three-four years we have had a great rise of the number of bluefish and barracuda. they are fishes of from 1 to 6-7 kg (not so common). In summer we can try to dolphin and various other pelagic fishes......

But now I want to try with rockfish (both hrf and lrf)

Welcome pierluigi and hope you enjoy the forum as much as everyone else, what lures do you use in Italy for the bass????
The trend now in Italy is for long slim lures...such as Daiwa Shoreline Shiner 140 and 170, Tide Minnow slim 145 and 170, Lucky Craft Sea Finger 130-150-170-190, Megabass X120 and X140, Rapala Max Rap. Most of them move at their best with jerking action retrieve, while quite has no own movement on linear retrieve. Rapala Max Rap has got a own movement on linear retrieve too.

Good luck with adapting techniques to fish in your area.
Please keep us informed (good and bad).
