Whether you are fishing out in the sea or in a river, there are always challenges getting around. It is necessary to have patience and try your utmost to catch the fish when they finally turn up.
First, you will need to get a fishing license from your local government and the laws regarding fishing are different depending on what state you live in. For saltwater fishing, you will have to get a boat. Depending on how many people join you, the vessel size would vary from a rowboat to a yacht.
In shore fishing can be done on a fifteen-foot sailboat with a cuddy forward to shelter passengers from the rain. The boat needs to be sturdy so that waves or bumps along the beach and rocks don’t affect it but it shouldn’t be too heavy.
Start by throwing your line out at the edges, not the middle so that it doesn’t scare the fish away. You will encourage the fish in the middle by sticking to the edges. A cod line will be a benefit to a person who wants to go “down below”. You can use a perch line as well. If it is mackerel fishing season, you can benefit from a mackerel jig too.
The best time to start fishing is on the ebb tide. That is early in the morning because that would make your day more productive and if the wind it light or fair, it would help you on your journey home. Try to find a spot where the locals go fishing. That is your best bet for a successful day.
Don’t be too impatient, many anglers would move from one spot onto the next and this motion may reduce your chances that day. Start from the shallowest spot to the deepest, throwing your line out a few times without changing your bait.
Another thing that may affect your fishing chances are sharks. If you have one following you, pour fish blood onto a newspaper or a paper towel. Roll it into a ball and throw it overboard. The sharks will follow the current and the fish will return thereby increasing your likelihood of obtaining fish.
