Best Fishing Techniques Uncovered

Equipment

There is nothing more exciting than going deep sea fishing; it is completely different to any other kind of fishing as there is nothing around you but miles and miles of ocean.

Whether trolling for kingfish, bottom fishing for a snapper or offshore fishing for blue marlin and black fin tuna, a day of deep sea fishing can be an adventurous and adrenaline pumping experience.

Overcoming Seasickness

If you’re prone to motion sickness, don’t let seasickness ruin your trip. It is a good idea to take some type of medication beforehand and not drink alcohol the night before your trip. Make sure to bring medication with you just in case. One trick to overcome seasickness is to stay up on deck in the fresh air and watch the horizon.

Listen and Follow the Captain’s Rules and Orders

During your trip, make sure you’re with a local expert who has extensive experience in Deep Sea Fishing. A captain will bring you to the best fishing spots and will tell you what bait is best for which fish. Be sure to ask questions if there are any misunderstandings.

Safety should be everyone’s top priority. A prepared fisherman is always safer than those not prepared. A life jacket, flares, and a radio are a must to be safe when out in the sea.

 

Check Out the Weather Conditions

Keep an eye on the weather forecast. A gorgeous day will yield far better results rather than a day that has bad weather, such as rough winds and a hard rain. You should also check the tide schedule.

You attire should also be comfortable. Remember that you will very likely get sweaty and dirty from your journey. Wear something that is comfortable and wear rubber soled shoes so that you won’t slip on the wet deck.

Items you should take with you:

• Aspirin or other pain reliever
• Sunscreen
– Be sure to rinse your hands after applying sunscreen while out on the boat. The smell and taste can transfer to the bait you’re handling, causing the fish to stop biting.
• A hat or cap
• Your Identification Card and some extra cash

The Benefits of Having a Good Guide

You’ll be with someone who knows the waters where you will be fishing. Your guide knows the area and knows the movements of the fish and they will also know where’s the best area to catch fishes and what type of fish that has been caught.

All these tips should help your next deep sea fishing excursion. If you pay attention to these tips you should have a great time with successful results. The number one thing to keep in mind is enjoy your time on the waters.
