Journée pêche à Carro
Martigues - Sport divers - Sunday 15 August 2021 between 7 am and 6 pm. Date to be confirmed.
It is simply a traditional fishing game where everyone participates in the same way, on an equal footing whether at sea or on foot.
- 7 am: Registration open to all, no license required. Meeting at the fish market, 5 euros per person.
Two categories: on foot or by boat.
If you own your boat, build your crew but be careful, the total weight of the fishing will be divided by the number of fishermen. In this way each participant will be classified individually.
If you are on foot, the shore of Carro offers many possibilities. The seaside is full of rock fish. The quays of the port allow children to fish dozens of gobis safely (beware, always under surveillance).
- 7:30 am: Top start!
- 11:30 am: return from fishing. The fishing is weighed in front of the public and you leave with your fishing.
- 6 p.m .: prize giving to all participants and aperitif. No loser, a prize for each participant and share the glass of friendship together!
Do not forget: an equipped fishing rod, a hat, cap or bob, bait (also on sale on site), patience and 5 euros (with change if possible).
- Animaux Acceptés
