How To Fish Amberjacks


The amberjack or seriola, its morphology

This type of fish has a flattened and elongated body. His eyes are small and the mouth ends in a round shape. The color of the seralas depends on the type but in a generic way we can say that blue and silver colors stand out. Some specimens may have a yellow line in their lateral dorsal area. It has two fins well differentiated. The maximum size that can reach this type of fish is around 160 cm and can weigh about 60 kg, although as we say it will depend on the type of species of seriola. This fish is known by several names, the most common is the lemon fish, also milk or amberjack. We can find it almost anywhere in the world, from the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean or Mediterranean Sea. He likes the tropical waters where they live surrounded by reefs. The breeding season occurs in the summer and spring seasons, although this depends on the area in which it is found.

Fishing aviary spinning, catching the lemonfish

Types and fishing of amberjacksWe make known  how to fish amberjacks or spinning seralas, powerful fish that will give us exciting fishing days. The most captured fish of this species are those of smaller sizes, up to one year of age and one kilo and little weight, because they are the least astute, the most coastal and the most abundant. The small baby Servlets begin to appear along the Iberian coasts in August, in rocky environments and around floating objects. They are very small fish of 10 to 20 centimeters but endowed with a remarkable growth capacity, that at the end of September or in October we will be able to find some ideal pieces for the ultra light equipment, type rockfishing or light spinning. Between the end of October and November with the change in temperature of the waters, the Azolans gain more depth, decreasing their density near the coast, although between 15 and 30 meters of sounding usually remain some groups of Azole, which will play during the  fishing in winter to those lucky enough to know from kayaking and place them in spring and poke his nose out the rocky coasts being most favorable to spinning fishing amberjack

The Secrets of Fishing in the Sea

Do not you still have the best book on all the Secrets of Fishing in the Sea?


Only those fishermen who have fished from shore will know what I'm talking about and you can stick a fish on the surface that makes a vertical dive of 15 meters in two seconds and breaks you with the ground , leaving you with the feeling of not knowing very well that is what happened. This forces you to oversize the fishing equipment but it is that on the coast there is no other. There are three species of aviary mostly found in the Atlantic, such as the amberjack, the black and the loquillo . The black one reaches a good size, while the loquillo is a small-sized amberjack, but it is the one that pounces on the lures more aggressively and shows good power. The three species occur in the Canary Islands and Cape VerdeOnly the Azole regularly arrives on the coasts , being very rare the catches of the other species, although some bold specimens have been seen through the mediations of the Strait of Gibraltar.

Fishing equipment ideal for fishing for serious fisherman

Servifolius are powerful fish , but this is not what will prepare us to choose our fishing equipment, but its malevolent mania to run towards submerged obstacles to try to break the line. On the coast to fish aviary spinning we must talk about a fishing rod 10-30 grams action to fish 300 gr fish , although under normal conditions we could have a team of 2-10 grams and in spring it is the largest serviola a team of 15-40 grams. To fish aviary to spinning we must take all the equipment to the limit since the fishing knotsThey are the weakest points. It depends a lot on the type of fishing we do, but usually we will have to learn how to make special knots, both in the under-line connection and in the bass of the lure, since it exerts a lot of friction on the knot to recover as quickly as possible. decoy jig since a bad knot would burn and therefore lose our precious capture.

Lures most used to fish amberjacks

The most effective lures to fish spinning ailerons go through metal jigs and slug type vinyls , with leaded heads that make darting. I do not mean by this that we can not fish amberjack with a surface walker or with a submerged stickbait driven to twiching, I just want to say that jigs and vinyls are the most effective, they must be very excited to make them bite.
