Deep Sea Fishing Tactics That Work

Bait is ever so important in a deep sea fishing trip. It’s best to use live bait. Use smaller fish like mullet, herring, and don’t forget that a lot of fish like to dine on crabs and shrimp. It is important to know what kind of fish you are going to be fishing for before you hit the bait and tackle shop and buy too much bait. Remember that this bait is going to have to remain alive and well up until you drop into the water. So packing a lot of bait in a container is a mistake.

Watch for some signs that will help you find the fish. If there are a lot of seagulls flying around an area of water, you can bet there are bait fish swimming around in there and the bigger fish who like to eat them. The same is true for pelicans. If you see dolphins putting on a show, you can almost guarantee that there will be yellowfin tuna swimming along with them. Yellowfins like to hang out with the dolphins!

The last but not least important tip for deep sea fishing is to make sure you have a clear and concise weather report before you even hit the water. Many fisherman who were inexperienced on the sea have lost their lives to storms while deep sea fishing. Don’t be a statistic. If you don’t know the signs of an approaching storm long before it gets to you, don’t go out without the aid of someone who does know the signs. The skies could be blue and clear one moment and the next thing you know you are being hurled around like a rubber ducky on the water! Take special care to mind the weather when you go deeps sea fishing.
