Deep sea fishing is a wonderful and extremely enjoyable
activity. Here are some tips that will make your salt water
fishing adventure even better.
1. Watch the signs
If you see birds e.g. Seagulls that are feasting on small
bait-type fishes, there are probably larger game-type fish
below the surface of the water. Also, look for floating wood
debris. In most cases when you chance upon a large floating
wood, you would find a large game fish in the area even
2. Stop, Snook and Listen
Fishing for snooks is quite similar as fishing for bass.
like to be around ledges, posts and rocks.
3. Crabs for full moon
During full moons use soft crab imitations as bait. That's the
time when crabs shed their shells and stripers come looking
4. If you're looking for tunas, find the dolphins
Yellowfin tuna are usually found schooling with dolphins. So
you see a group of dolphins, chances are there are some tuna
5. Cut and Burn
If you have trouble cutting through a spiderwire braid, try
using a lighter or a match.
6. Good Reef
The best place to fish is near reefs since big game fish feed
on fish that live on reefs.
7. The Circle Hook
Use a circle hook if you would like a higher hook up ratio.
These hooks guarantees more catch, because of the minute gap,
and the reverse point. They are generally better for the fish
since they do not hook in the gut just the lip.
8. Donít have sea legs
Watch the horizon and stay on deck. These would generally help
you if you're having trouble with sea sickness: Stay away from
the boat fumes, breathing it only exacerbates the problem.
9. Anchors away
When your anchor is stuck at the bottom, try attaching a float
to it. Return after the tide has changed in direction. This
should be enough to loosen the anchor.
10. Fish where the fish are
A lot of fisherman have the idea that they should be catching
their live baits over the reefs before going to deep waters.
the live baits are not in the area you're planning to catch
larger games, then why would you come up with the idea that
large fish are there. Wouldn't they be in the area where the
bait fish are?
