Species of Fish
This is an American species that was introduced into the Peninsula in 1955 and currently lives in all our reservoirs. In winter, they retreat to deeper waters and become almost inactive. When the pre-spawning season gets closer, they come out of ‘hibernation’ and begin to approach the shore. Because of this, the best season for fishing in our reservoirs is from May to November and the biggest catches can weigh in at 3kg. We always use artificial bait.
This is an exotic species introduced to the Peninsula in the lat 1940s. Currently they live in all of our reservoirs. They have a sedentary and greedy nature and so we can fish for them throughout the whole year although winter is when it is most popular. The heaviest catches can weigh up to 12 or 13 kg though we have heard that heavier fish have been caught. We always use artificial bait.
