Izmir’s fish-rich bays

The biggest attraction for amateur fishermen is the coastline of Izmir. One of the most critical factors is the abundance of fish species and the beauty of fishing areas. When these two factors are combined, there is no obstacle to the happiness of fishing enthusiasts. Correct positioning and skillful fishing guides pave the way for plenty of anglers to catch a week’s worth of fish in one day from Izmir.

The fishing beaches of Izmir, Chili, and Guzel Baghche can be mentioned for the inner bay (inside the city of Izmir) and Karaborun and Fuca for the outer bay and outside the city of Izmir. There are differences between these two regions in terms of wind strength. In the inner bay, the location of the mountains prevents the wind from blowing, so the sea area is calmer. In the distance between Karabron and Focha, the situation is reversed.

the most suitable bait and equipment for fishing in Izmir

If you’ve reached the perfect spot for fishing, it’s time to give your back a break. Because the fish don’t keep you waiting, you may not know when they will be hooked. This is where the importance of proper equipment and type of bait becomes apparent. Many details, from the thickness of the thread to its color, from the length of the fishing line to its material, are essential in fishing. Fishermen prefer their lines to be invisible under the sea. This is important because the more we protect the natural environment of the sea, the greater the chance of successful hunting.

The most invisible thread is known as the fluorocarbon thread. The quality and attractiveness of the bait at the end of this line make fishing more accessible and enjoyable. Different baits are used for marine fish and freshwater fish. So, in the Aegean, you should carry the bait that the Aegean fish prefer in your bag. These baits include live baits, whole dead fish, leech baits, slap baits, squids, oysters, and shrimp. Before this, don’t forget to bring a fish basket, water, a water bucket to keep the fish, a fishing net, a fishing rod, and a hook, the most basic fishing equipment.

Equipment needed for Fishing in Izmir

Fishing in Izmir is much more blessed by boat.

Sea fishing from a boat has many advantages. When you are away from the land, you leave the pollution and noise of the city behind you; fishing becomes a different pleasure. Apart from the experience that soothes your soul, you should also know the advantages of a boat for fishing. A ship in the sea leaves no room for you to wait for the fish to come to you. If you’re trying to fish from the shore, the farther you cast the line, the better chance you have of catching, but in boat fishing, you can go to areas where you know the fish are more prolific and have a better chance of seeing them. Catching fish that swim against the current is also part of the theme.

In this sense, it is helpful to know the places where the flow is good. Because especially if you know the underground currents and their direction, the probability of increasing the fertility of your hunt increases. Choosing a dark bait in sunny weather increases the chances that the fish will see and catch the bait. In night hunting, fish gather where the moonlight falls, and large predatory fish rise to the surface. Fish prefer shade during the day in summer.

We start a fruitful day on the shores of Çeşme Izmir.

Cheshme is a beautiful city in the Orlay region of Izmir. This settlement, which is almost popular with fishermen, is 15-20 minutes from Izmir and 40 minutes from Manisa. On family trips or with friends, you can catch Chopra fish, coral, yellow wing fish, and many other fish, such as scallops, in different seasons. Alti Spring is a settlement with fertile fish, and its sea allows you to catch sandfish at night. As the border point of Izmir Bay, Cheshme Alti is one of the places where fish are abundant.]
