Five Tips for Saltwater Fishing in Washington

Take Advantage of Fishing Reports – If you take advantage of the fishing reports in Washington, then you will have a better idea of when to fish for certain species, which baits work the best and even when other anglers are having the most luck.

Take Care Of Your Equipment – Remember to clean your equipment with fresh water after each fishing trip. Even though you have equipment designed for the saltwater environment, you still need to go through the clean-up process to help extend its life and protect your investment. It’s also important to store your equipment properly when not in use to keep them in good shape.

The tips above can help to make all of your Washington saltwater fishing trips more fun and exciting. Being prepared truly does make a difference but you should also follow all safety rules when fishing. Your safety should be your number one concern and put before anything else. If you’re going out on a boat be sure and wear your life jacket even if you are a good swimmer.

Check the weather before heading out. Being out on the ocean in bad weather can be very dangerous. Keep in mind that the weather can change dramatically and very quickly so, you should always be alert and ready to head inland in the event bad weather strikes. It’s best to go saltwater fishing with a partner and at least one of you should have experience with this type of environment.

It’s also a good idea to have a cell phone with you, a two-way radio or some other reliable way to reach someone in case of an emergency. There should also be someone onshore that knows where you plan to go fishing and when you plan to return. If something should go wrong, they’ll have an idea of where you should be. Having a safe trip means returning back to Washington for many more fun and productive saltwater fishing trips.
