Deep sea fishing could be an exciting and enjoyable experience indeed, particularly to people who love the ocean and fishing. Listed below are a few tips to help you find and catch the right kind of game for your upcoming water adventure.
Deep Sea Fishing Tips
Look For Signs
If you are out in the ocean and you see seagulls swooping down to take small bait type of fish, then you know that that there are bigger game type of fish out there that are hunting as well as driving these fish into tight balls close to the surface. In some instances, you will find bigger fish swimming near the floating debris or wood.
In general, these bigger fish prey on the fish that reside near the reef. More often than not, fishermen try to get live bait fish close to the reef and also head to deeper waters hoping that they could catch the big ones. But, this strategy is almost never successful and it is highly recommended that you fish around the edges of the reefs.
Types of Hook and Fishing Rods
Utilizing lighter fishing rods out in the streams, lakes, rivers, and even when surf fishing is just fine. However, if you go deep fishing for bigger fish such as large sea bass, marlin, stripers, and tuna, you will require a stronger rod that could take the weight of the fish, endure the time it requires to catch one and deal with the struggle between fisherman and fish. That’s the reason why it isn’t surprising to see anglers choosing graphite fishing rods, which are light but durable and strong for heavy duty deep fishing.
Even though graphite is likewise used to create fishing rods for other kinds of fishing, the Myrtle Beach deep sea fishing rods that are crafted out of graphite are denser, wider, and longer. The only disadvantage to graphite is that they are not that flexible, and that is one of the reasons why some fishermen fiberglass fishing rods for deep sea fishing because they are less durable but strong as well as flexible yet light.
When it comes to hooks, circle hooks are perfect for deep sea fishing. They have higher chances of getting more catches because they have a reverse point and a minute gap. This kind of hooks are far better for the fish since they hook the fish in their lip and not in their gut, which means minimal suffering for the catch.
A popular fish among anglers who go deep sea fishing is snook. They could be found around the rooks, posts, and ledges. Stripers are another popular kind of fish and the best time for you to fish is during full moon. During that time, they will be hunting for crabs, which have recently shed their shell. You should also consider using crab imitation as baite. Yellow fin tuna is also popular and commonly found schooling with dolphins. So, if you see a dolphin, you will most likely find some tuna as well.
