    So I am about to start fishing off the coast of Lanzarote, here is the gear I have so far...plus a 2.7m rod and a reel my dad gave me...I plan to fish off the beach/rocks...looking to catch sea bream/dorada ...or anything reasonable to feast upon.
    So am I good to go or have I missed something? (apparently the locals use bread and 'murder rigs' but I'll try this way first...before I go for the murder rig)

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Bait the traces up with some squid, buy it frozen from the shop, you might get a seafood selection with squid prawns and mussels, all good baits, attach the weight and chuck it out, I'm sure you can catch something.
    You might want a bit more gear if you are fishing somewhere rocky.
    Good luck.

    In my experience fishing abroad, always do what the locals do. Your float with a treble underneath will probably catch you smaller fish, this helped me when fishing from the rocks in the canaries where a single hook just wasnt working for me. Fished lures with little success.

    Either way, take your gear and have some fun.

    what do you mean mate:confused2: sorry i can be a bit slow on the uptake. If its in regard to my comment about people on here i meant a few guys on here are from Lanzarote, they was very helpful when i wanted to fish out there.
