• Essential Deep Sea Fishing Tips

    Whether you’re preparing to go cod fishing or you’re getting your rods ready for some quality flounder fishing, there are a few tips and tricks you may want to try during your upcoming fishing tour in order to get the best catch. Deep sea fishing differs greatly from standard freshwater fishing, but once you get the hang of it, you’re sure to have a great time and to return to land with a prize or two. Here are a few essential deep sea fishing tips:

    Keep a Lookout for Wildlife
    Once you’ve set out on your fishing tour, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for signs of wildlife in the waters around you. Large mammals, such as dolphins, are typically a surefire sign that there are some larger fish in the area, as these animals like to feed on fatty fish like cod and mackerel.

    Stay On Deck to Calm Sea Sickness
    If you’re finding it difficult to find your sea legs while on your fishing tour, be sure to ask your captain or guide for tips on avoiding further discomfort. Typically, the best strategy for fighting sea sickness is to remain on deck and to focus on the horizon. If you find it difficult to focus on the horizon, try closing your eyes for a while until you’re ready to continue cod or flounder fishing.

    Know Which Bait Works Best
    Another essential tip to consider while out on your deep sea fishing tour is to use the proper bait. For example, experienced fishermen know that stripers can’t resist soft crab and that tuna often respond well to mackerel on the end of a line. The seasoned cod fishing and flounder fishing professionals leading your tour can help you choose the right bait to snag that perfect catch.
