KSFA Tubertini 2015 Doubles League 2015 Overview

20/04/2015 22:17

 This year's league had a new and a fundamental regulation, and the first time that a Maltese fishing club started using these types of rules.

All anglers on equal terms with regards to both fishing and ground bait, including quantities.

These were provided prior the start to each competition.

In this way the league was the most fair for all since everyone started on the same foot.

A total of 14 Teams registered for this League, an increase of 2 teams from last year. 
In total the league consisted of 5 Matches, having 3 of the venues new for KSFA competitions. These were held between end of January till mid-April.

A total of 74.34Kgs of fish were caught (a high percentage of the fish was released back in it's habitat after each competition), at an average of 14.868Kgs per match. 


MATCH 1 

Valletta Waterfront Quay    Date:-  25th January
It was the first time that our Club has organised a competition at this venue.

A total of 2 sections were drawn early morning.

It was a nice competition where the fish caught most were annular Bream, wrasses  and common Pandora.

Also some pegs had some nice sized mullets.

One of these was caught by Club Secretary Jonathan Vella that was the biggest fish for the league recorded weighing 630Grms.

Match 2:-  Manoel Island       Date:-  15th February 


Expectations where high, where normally at this venue nice weight are recorded.

Unfortunately this time round bottom fish were not biting much and the main difference was mulett.

All top 3 teams had mulett in their keepnet at the end of the competition.

Match 3:-  Birgu - Toqba       Date:-  15th March 


It was a really windy morning and before starting it was already clear that with clear waters and a forceful wind it was going to be a difficult match.

Unfortunately again weights were quite low but still much better than the previous match.

Bogue fishing made the biggest difference.

The fastest team that adapted most to the weather and fish won the competition.

Also it should be noted that 3 overalls had some nice specimens of sparli and bottom fish.

Match 4:-  Corinthia Marina San Gorg Paceville   Date:-  31st March 


A new venue was tried and as expected members where really eager to try it.

Till now no Official Club had organised a competition on this quay.

Yet again, the competitors where again faced with a Force 5 Wind from their sides.

Still it immediately got noticed that fish were biting much more than the 2 competitions we had before. 

Small mullets were caught on quite alot of different pegs.

Also a good amount of marmora where caught on the day.

Congrats again to Team Milo for again winning this match too.

1st Overall Team Milo - Roberto Bugeja & Adrian Nelson   2.420 Kgs

Match 5:-  Valletta - St. Elmo     Date:-  12th April 

 
Last match for the KSFA Tubertini Doubles League was held at Valletta underneath the Fort St. Elmo fortifications.

It was a return to this venue where it had been a couple of years missing from KSFA calender.

At the start of the match it was noted that most teams were catching some nice sized bogue and a good mixture of bottom fish.

Later on during the match some changed over to Damsel fishing.

This match was won by Joseph Ellul & Andre Borg who apart from the bogue had a good mix of bottom fish with a nice amount of pajzan too.
