Target Fish for May
Gilthead Bream – Sparus aurata
A very deep bodied, powerful fish
with spiked dorsal and anal fins
and a prominent forked tail. It has
a slightly larger mouth than its
black cousin. The main
identification is the shiny gold
(gilt) bar between the eyes.
Minimum size: 1.134 kg (2.8lb) Specimen size: 2.268kg (5.0lb)
Paul’s Pointers
Paul Robinson suggests a very simple running ledger for targeting gilthead bream;
you can use an American snap swivel or a zip slider, a small weight (1oz) so as not
to spook the fish and a strong size 1 hook.

Who is Kevin Williams?
Kevin is Billy and Ellie’s dad. He has been fishing on
and off since he was a teenager with limited success.
However, since Billy joined MBAS three years ago the
family catch rate has greatly improved, thanks mainly
to Mark Willey and Paul Robinson passing on their
knowledge and tips. He now wants to help other
people to be more successful and for their catch
rates to improve.
