There are numerous huts situated along the banks of rivers and valleys, as an eloquent testimony to the passion for this discipline, which has been handed down over time. The small boats moored along the canals and rivers and the large number of fishermen lined up along the piers show that there is still a fervent passion for fishing, which is practised all year round.
One of the most relevant sites worth mentioning is the breakwater north of Porto Corsini, which extends 2.7 km out to sea, providing a space for everyone and all kinds of fishing techniques.
The stretch of beach between Foce Lamone and Casal Borsetti is characterized by small artificial reefs and breakwaters, and is a good, uncrowded place to fish for types of fish such as umbrine, bream, eels and weaver.
For those who enjoy pelamyd, mackerel or bogue offshore fishing, the ship Gladiator organizes trips 12 miles off the coast every day from spring to autumn.
In the Lidi Nord area, the man in the know when it comes to this sport is Marco Montanari at the Marlin Blu shop in Porto Corsini, who is passionate about fishing and will recommend the right equipment and bait for everyone, whether they are beginners or professionals.
