10 Deep Sea Fishing Tips
Whether you are fishing on your own or alongside some of the most talented anglers in the deep sea, we have racked up quite a few hours of fishing experience, with your hook, bait, and stunning fishing sunglasses. Along the way, we've learned a thing or two so we started making a list of some tricks and tips about fishing kayaks that make fishing more fun and more productive. The following are the top 10 deep Sea Fishing Tips for you.
1. If you're looking for Tunas, Find the Dolphins: Yellow fin tuna are usually found schooling with dolphins. So if you see a group of dolphins, chances are there are some tuna in the area.
2. Stop, Snook and Listen: Fishing for snooks is quite similar as fishing for bass. Snooks like to be around ledges, posts, and rocks.
3. Cut and Burn: If you have trouble cutting through a spider wire braid, try using a lighter or a match.
4. Watch the Signs: If you see birds e.g. Seagulls that are feasting on small bait-type fishes, there are probably larger game-type fish below the surface of the water. Also, look for floating wood or debris. In most cases when you chance upon a large floating wood, you would find a large game fish in the area even encountering dolphin.
5. Fish where the Fish Are: A lot of fishermen have the idea that they should be catching their live baits over the reefs before going to deep waters. If the live baits are not in the area you're planning to catch the larger games, then why would you come up with the idea that the large fish are there. Wouldn't they be in the area where the bait fish are?
6. The Circle Hook: Use a circle hook if you would like a higher hookup ratio. These hooks guarantee more catch, because of the minute gap, and the reverse point. They are generally better for the fish since they do not hook in the gut just the lip.
7. Anchors Away: When your anchor is stuck at the bottom, try attaching a float to it. Return after the tide has changed in direction. This should be enough to loosen the anchor.
8. Don't Have Sea Legs: Watch the horizon and stay on deck. These would generally help you if you're having trouble with sea sickness: Stay away from the boat fumes, breathing it only exacerbates the problem.
9. Good Reef: The best place to fish is near reefs since big game fish feed on fish that live on reefs.
10. Crabs for a Full Moon: During full moons, use soft crab imitations as bait. That's the time when crabs shed their shells and stripers come looking for them.
