The Red, the Dead, and The Med…amazing fishing in Israeli waters

Amazing fishing in Israeli waters

Israel features no less than four seas – The Red, The Dead, The Med…and the Sea of Galilee. But it’s the Med that has the fish!

David Kosta,living and fishing in Israel  – has been catching amazing fish in the Mediterranean Sea for ages now?! David lived and spearfished South African waters for many years – and is now back in Israel and is the Rob Allen and Mydo Lures distributor for the country. What is really amazing though, is that he is catching some of the very same species we get back here in Southern Africa. (Jules Verne’s subterranean channel maybe?)

Featuring ‘couta and monster amberjack in this insert, David has perfected the art of big baits fished deep down. He has used Mydo lures for many years and has perfected the art of deep dropping big baits for big fish.

Below is a picture of the rig these guys use to fish deep. The number 4.5 Mydo – get’s the bait down deep yet it still has an action – especially on the drift in current – in waters up to 40m or more.
