Spinning in the sea is one of the last born fishing methods in the sea; basically it consists in throwing an artificial lure and by recovering it we try to tempt a predator to capture the lure so that it stay worried about the hook on the lure.
To practice we used spinning fishing rod with fishing reel of different length and action that vary according to the fishing place and the method employed.
General feature of spinning fishing rod are flexibility and lightness with a good resistance to corrosion. For that concerns fishing reels, the choice can vary between the traditional fixed ones with sensitive clutch and the ones with twirl reel designed for this use and providing major ranges and capacity of string.
The artificial rules used in spinning essentially are that used for trolling, above all trolling from the coastline.
The main preys of spinning are predator species even if it often happens to capture other fishes (for instance salemas, painted combers and trachinidaes) which attack the artificial lure just for their natural aggression or for defending the territory.
The main preys are European basses, saddled seabreams, garfishes, amberjacks and leerfishes.
This method is used all year by our guides.
