How Inshore Salt Water Fishing is Done
It is undisputable that fishing is important the world over. It is important for economic reasons as well as for sport. Different countries have different types of fishing. The two main types of fishing are fresh water fishing and salt water fishing. Fresh water fishing is mainly done in landlocked countries. Those which border large oceans such as the Indian, Atlantic and pacific oceans would favor salt water fishing more.
There is a wide variety of fish to catch in salt water fishing. Fresh water fishing does not however allow for a wide variety of fish species. Fresh water bodies would mainly contain tilapia species of fish. Mackerel, redfish and catfish are some of the many fish species that you will find in salt water bodies. Diversity boosts profitability of salt water fishing. The wide variety of fish species means that there would be a choice for buyers and also that it would not be easy to deplete the fish in the water body.
How would you do salt water fishing? Edges of beaches form the best areas for salt water fishing. Small boats are usually ideal to many people for salt water fishing. Edges of beaches are therefore ideal since they can be accessed even when using small boats. The other advantage of beaches is that their proximity to land means that growth of planktons and other sea weeds is supported. The planktons serve as food for fish hence the population of fish near the beach would naturally be high.
After identifying the correct location to do salt water fishing, you need to determine the equipment you need to have. Consider the type of boat you will use in the fishing expedition. It is good to note that salty water can lead to corrosion of some metals. Ensure that your boat parts are made of materials such as steel that do not corrode. Seas and oceans do also experience tides. Use a boat that would not be destroyed by such tides. Make sure that your fishing lines are also strong enough for use in salty water.
Equipments can also be determined by the type of fishing one wishes to do. Small fish can be caught easily using small non-complicated equipment. However, if you need to capture large fish, it would then be prudent to ensure that you have a large boat with a strong engine as well as strong fishing rods and hooks. Fishing is also dependent on the time of the day. Oceans and seas do experience rise and fall of tides. This would definitely affect position of fish during different times of the day. The best time to catch fish is when the fish are near the beach. This would mean the time when tides are low near the edge of the beaches making them calm enough for the fish to survive.
