Beach ledgering is the sister technique of surfcasting. A lighter technique that does not require a meticulous organization such as that required by surfcasting.
The beach ledgering, however, gives the sublime sensations especially among fans with a special fondness for sea bream.
Beach ledgering: ready for anything
The beach ledgering unlike surfcasting is practiced with calm sea. A fishing technique that allows fans to go fishing at various times of the day, even when a surf beat would give a coat as a result.
Very similar technique but practiced with a lighter equipment, the beach ledgering is characterized by the use of telescopic rods from 3.80 to 4.20 meters long with a fiberglass filled to get a better view of the prey’s eaten.
Launch is not the priority
Unlike surf rods, beach ledgering rods do not allow long spins where the wave breaks and sea bream grunts. But, however, it allows you to launch a good distance between 50 and 80 meters in search of bream, bass, sea bream and mormore.
A technique for everyone that can be practiced both from the beach and from piers and breakwaters.
Where and when to fish at beach ledgering
A technique practiced as already said on the beach where the sea degrades in an important way. The fisherman then finds himself fishing on the sandy-rocky bottoms of the mesolittoral where most of the coastal fish graze. For example, the bream and the sage are massively present in these areas. Another excellent fishing area for beach ledgering are the channels that lead to the sea and where Eurialini fish such as sea bream and seabearts venture out in search of food. The channels unlike the rock areas are to be preferred if in the presence of fishing because they will allow us to fish without losing the terminals stranded between the rocks.
In the channels, for example, it is important to observe the tides if they are entering or leaving. In the event that the sea water enters and creates a current zone in the middle of the channel along with it there will be microorganisms followed closely by fish such as sea bream and sea bass.
The beach ledgering is a fishing technique that can be used all day and even at night. A waiting fishing that can bear good fruit if the fishing spot is a passage area for fish.
Which equipment to use for beach ledgering fishing
As already mentioned, the beach ledgering fishing asks for telescopic rods from 3.80 to 4.20 meters with a throwing action from 80 to 150 grams. The reels to be used are small size (from 3000 to 4000) unwound with nylon thread of 0.28 / 0.30mm. Of great interest at this point is the ultra sensitive car that allows you to hear the micro touches of the fish even the most ‘discrete.
The assembly of the beach ledgering
The assembly for this technique is the classic sliding assembly with an olivette. A piece of wire of about 1.50 in fluorocarbon and a twisted sea bream hook which allows to have also a multi-specifity to capture other coastal prey, is used at the tip-to-head swivel.
Of great importance are still the tripod that allows you to put the rods in fishing and have them under control for all the time of the draw. The elastic thread that allows us to tie the bait to the hook and the bright starlight to scrutinize the carriage in the dark of the night. During the day, however, you can also use the bells at the tip of the barrel that will resonate with the fish.
The prey of beach ledgering
All coastal species in addition to those already mentioned. Serranid, pagelli, eels and moray eels, umbrellas and bogues. Unlike the surf prey will not have a record size but we can gain in quantities of tips.Needless to say that in case of catching prey under measure the best thing to do is release them immediately in the water.
Fishing on the beach will be the mormora instead the species that more than others will peep at your terminal. To fish the murmur at beach ledgering the advice is to use small fishhooks and trigger them with the beach. Always on sand can be part of your game rhombus, soles or leccie star.
Bait for beach ledgering
Bibi, rimini worms, Korean worms, razor clams, clams, murals, bernardo hermit crabs and shrimp are all excellent baits for beach ledgering. However, a good supply is ideal and testing more baits allows you to adjust and select the prey you want most to catch, avoiding bogues or small gobies.
