Answer . You can make it as simple or as complicated as you wish:-) I'm in the UK, so am able to fish around the Med several times each year, as a part of vacation trips, and the methods vary very little from country to country.. If you are in an urban centre / city, it is possible / probable t…hat you will be able to take part in organised fishing trips on board a boat, which can be anything from dangling a line overboard to big-game fishing.. Most fishing probably takes place from shores / breakwaters, in harbours etc ... and remember, tides are not really an issue in the Med, as for all intents and purposes, they do not exist!:-). Fishing methods can range from the lightest rod that you own, with a naural bait (virtually anythiung edible!), to a powerful rod capable of casting 5 ounces (160grams) well over 150 yards / metres .. or anything in between, including the full range of lure / baitcasting rods.. It REALLY is that flexible .. take what you have and simply enjoy yourself .. like the world over, you'll find that anglers talk to each other:-) (MORE)

Answer . The Mediterranean does have some tidal range, but it is slight compared with other places on earth. Because the Mediterranean is nearly landlocked, with the only major opening to open seas being the Strait of Gibraltar, the Mediterranean at large is not affected by the movement of large …volumes of Pacific waters. The tidal range in mid-ocean is about 2 feet in some areas, which may seem strange at first. But in mid-ocean, there is so much water everywhere, that substantial movement of water at a given place is matched by similar movements all around, amounting to a kind of huge cycling shift. The effects of tide are greatest usually near coastlines, where the water moves up against the unmoving land. (MORE)
