Fishing on Ibiza

Had a weeks holiday on Ibiza the fist week in June and of course took a telescopic rod with me. We went to a resort called Portinaxt very much like Cornwall, lots of coves, and rocks to fish from. The fishing was good caught lots of beautiful small multicoloured fish that would have looked at home in a tropical fish tank.
Using a piece of fish on a number 4 carp hook and a pike float with 15lb line I tried for somthing a little bigger and was rewarded with an eel, it was about 2 foot long and a beautiful copper colour. It had a fin running the whole length of it's body and a pointed head with an impressive mouth full of teeth, it gave a good fight.
It was nice to be able to fish in nice weather, wearing shorts and a tee shirt instead of the usual wet weather gear.
Next time we go there I would tale some lighter gear as I missed lots of bites.
