Deep Sea Fishing Tips

deep sea fishing tips


Here are some helpful tips when deep sea fishing that may help you catch the big one you have always dreamed of catching or perhaps catching many more fish than you ever imaged.

  • Fish Near a Reef – many smaller fish live near the reef. Large fish go there to feed. This could potentially be a gold mine.
  • Watch the signs– If you see birds that are feasting on small bait-type fishes there are probably large game-type fish below the surface of the water.
  • Look for floating wood or debris – In most cases when you chance upon a large floating wood, you will find a larger game fish in the area.
  • Motion Sickness– if you don’t have sea legs watch the horizon and stay on deck. This will generally help you if you are having sea sickness. There are medications you can take to alleviate some of the symptoms.
  • Fishing for Tuna– Look out for dolphins because these two species often school together. Be careful however not to catch a dolphin, they are protected.
  • Cut and Burn-If you have trouble cutting through a spiderwire braid, try using a lighter or a match.
  • Crabbing– Do this when there is a full moon, use soft crab imitation as bait. This is the time when crab shed their shells and stripers come looking for them.
  • Anchors– When your anchor is stuck at the bottom, try attaching a float. Return after the tide has changed in direction. This should be sufficient to loosen the anchor.
  • Fish where the Fish are– Some fisherman think they should be catching their live bait over the reefs before going to deep waters. This makes no sense. Wouldn’t the larger fish be in the area where the bait fish are?
  • Snook Fishing– Snook like to be around ledges, posts and rocks.
  • The Circle Hook– Circle hooks will give you a higher hook up ratio. These hooks help to insure you catch more, because of the minute gap, and the reverse point. They are also better for the fish since they do not hook in the gut but just in the lip.
