Saltwater Game Fishing

Black Drum   The black drum is considered an inshore fish making it popular because they can be fished whether you have a boat or not. Many anglers prefer shore fishing and this species thrive in the shallow waters close to shore. They can also be found in bays and marches and areas with muddy bottoms. Another place to find them will be around lagoons and bays.

Its natural food source is crabs, mussels, oysters and crustaceans. One reason the black drum is one of the top 5 saltwater species is because anyone can enjoy fishing for them regardless of their skill level.

Saltwater fishing will continue to be at the top of the list because it has so much to offer. It is fun, entertaining and can be a challenge that keeps you on your toes. If you are new to saltwater fishing, then it is very important to take some time to learn what needs to be done to keep safe while out on the water.

Fishing in saltwater is a lot different than fishing in freshwater. There are many obstacles that you need to be aware of. For example, the weather plays a big part on your safety and well being. If you are far away from the coastline and a storm moves in it could put you in a life threatening situation. To avoid this you need to always stay up-to-date on the latest news and weather forecast.

Keep in mind that in many areas storms tend to pop up out of nowhere so you should always have some form of communication available. Pay attention to everything around you and have a plan in the event something unexpected happens.

You should always make sure that someone on land knows where you are and when you plan on returning home. This will help to make sure you get the proper help you need in the event something should happen and you do not return on time. Protect yourself each time you go out so all of your saltwater adventures can be a great one.
