Saltwater Fishing Gear

When you are sure that you have all your saltwater fishing gear in good, working order, it’s time to set out. Check that the boat is fully fueled so that you don’t run out of gas at a bad time. Make sure that all of your safety gear is loaded and all of your saltwater fishing gear is readily available but safely stowed. Choppy waters can make fishing rods slinging around the boat a really dangerous hazard, and if your tackle box isn’t sealed tight, you may have problems with hooks flying around, making your trip even more dangerous.

One piece of saltwater fishing gear than many anglers like to use, especially on long trips where bait rests in the water for extended periods of time, is a rod rest, where they can simply secure their rods to the edge of the boat and watch for a bite rather than having to hold the rod at all times. Of course, in order for this piece of saltwater fishing gear to be useful, you have to know how to spot a bite from the type of fish you’re targeting – some look more like the hook has snagged on something below the surface.

Any way you look at it, having all the right saltwater fishing gear is even more important than gear for any other type of fishing excursion. Once you get out to sea, there is no turning back to the nearest store for supplies!
