Fishing for Goatfish

We continue with our basic tutorials of fishing by species, today we give the passage to the Cabracho, a fish of alive color and dangerous armored, a challenge of greater level for fishermen not so beginners. The fishing of the goatfish can be a bit rough if you do not take forecasts, so today at PescaCosmar we teach you how to venture to fish the red or cap-roig without suffering consequences.

Knowing The Scorpion

Scorpio, Scorpio, Cap-roig, Gallina and Roja are the popular names of theScorpoena Scrofa, a Betonic fish family of the Scorpids. Its size is prominent and its armored head has no teeth, but has multiple venomous spokes on the anal fin.Its scales are quite large as are its eyes and stands out for its colorful.

Color

He is called Red because of his color in this hue, although sometimes he pulls towards orange, yellow or dark jasper, since his excellent camouflage abilities allow him to adapt to the color of the background in which they are. It also has whitish tones around the head, and sometimes the center of the dorsal fin is black, due to the toxic mucus in that area.

Behavior

It is a nocturnal fish, because during the day it remains lethargic and in the nocturnal hours begins to hunt with great secrecy. Due to the minimal movement they make, algae usually grow around their skin, so every two weeks, the goatfish changes skin.

Habitad

It likes the seabed that are around 20 and 200 meters deep, where it remains very quiet camouflaged with the environment and the reefs. The closer to the coast, the younger the specimens.

Size And Weight

The average catch is about 30 cm, but the maximum size they can reach is 50 cm.In terms of weight, we usually find specimens from 1 kg to 1.5 kg.

Feeding

The scorpionfish is an omnivorous fish, like almost anything but it prefers to feed on small fish and crustaceans. Devouring them whole.

Where To Find Goats

Due to their morphology and their need for camouflage, the goats tend to prowl coralline backgrounds, cavities, or rocky bottoms, sometimes they are in solitary and sometimes in group. The level is varied, from the 20 to the 500 meters of depth, with greater probabilities of finding them before the 200 meters.

It will be difficult to find or obtain scorpion bites before sunset, since they are nocturnal species. We recommend staying in the same area and not moving the low line at high speeds, as this species avoids scrolling.

The goatfish prefers to be surrounded by vegetation, and during the hot seasons it chooses to submerge to greater depths.

They are found in the waters of the North-East Atlantic, and abound on the coasts of the Canary Islands, Madeira and the Azores. They can sometimes be seen in the Mediterranean Sea, but are totally absent in the Black Sea.

The Fishing Of The Cabracho

The goatfish has a white and delicious meat, highly valued in the gastronomy, so that many fishermen spend some of their day to fish and take it home. The larger specimens are further away from the coast and should be selected, as it is recommended not to fish sporty, because stress caused by fishing makes life difficult for young specimens, as well as their reproduction later.

When To Fish Goatfish

The best times to fish Cabracho are in the springtime it’s best to set off on a fishing expedition or at the end of the winter lets you very active with water catching plants.

As for the time of day, it is good to set sail in the afternoon and have a good location and the equipment ready to start at sunset. As it darkens the bites are more recurring.

Fishing Mode

The bottom fishing is the method used and the most recommended to fish scorpionfish, you can do with light or heavy equipment fishing. It is also common in underwater fishing, but we will not play that mode here.

Tips For Fishing Goatfish

The goat has no major tricks, if you pay attention and find them in your area, you just have to be patient.

As for the baits you have the advantage that almost everything can work, the natural bait calls the attention for the smell, so it uses fish of strong smell like thesardine. Although if you like working with crustaceans, use whole crabs. You will be surprised how you devour them. The annelids and pieces of squid also like alot and earn a lot of sacks.

Later, the relatively complex temptation of the goatfish will be to detect its sting, since it is usually very stealthy and quite difficult to see if the line is hundreds of meters deep. You must be very aware of the sensations of the toe and the tension of the line.

Once near the surface, you have to be very careful when putting it on the boat, if the poisonous thorns touch you you will suffer much pain and swelling in the area, in case it happens you should visit a doctor immediately and if possible, take the To take the respective measures.

The scorpion can stand for several hours out of the water, so hold it or kill it instantly to transport it more safely. If you want to release it, do it with delicacy, avoiding thorny radios touching you.

Fishing Gear For Scorpionfish

The advantage of the goat is that it does not need a specialized equipment, you can use from the rod that you use for trolling until the light spinning rod, however the reel must have a considerable capacity, since you probably have to reach funds that are around 200 meters of depth.

The line in turn is the one that requires more detail, since when fishing in rocky bottoms, entanglements and the risk of cutting the line frequently, it is preferable to use inexpensive elastic monofilament fishing yarns with a thick measure.

“We hope that this guide is very useful to start you in the fishing of the goatfish, do not forget to tell us how you went on your day, luck and good fishing”
