If you’re a deep-sea fishing beginner, you’re probably excited about an unforgettable experience on deep blue waters where the fish are huge. However, preparation is key. So, here are essential tips to be better prepared for the occasion and enjoy it the most.
Get an expert
Deep-sea fishing is exciting and challenging. That also means that you need to be careful about several details. Even small mistakes can prove expensive, which is why it is best to have an experienced deep-sea angler with you. Alternatively, you could go deep sea fishing as part of a group with a good mix of both beginners and experienced anglers so that you can learn from the experts and share that experience of first-time deep-sea fishing with others like you.
Master the fishing knots
Knowing how to tie the proper fishing knots is an often-overlooked skill. However, any experienced angler will tell you that knowing how to tie the appropriate fishing knots is extremely helpful for deep-sea fishing. When you’re learning to fish, learn about knots too.
Get some string or the type of fishing line you’ll be using. Look up videos on how to tie the knots you’ll need. When you’re deep-sea fishing, knowing how to tie the proper knots can help you –
● tie lines to different sized hooks
● join two sections of line together
● form a loop for the fish at the end of the fishing line
● attach monofilaments to the hook
Deep-sea fishing videos on YouTube or TV only show you the big catch, but they usually skip talking about the long waiting periods between throwing in the line and the big catch. It can be a long time before a big fish takes the bait, and you catch your first fish. So, you need loads of patience on your deep-sea fishing trip. You need to persist because when you do get a bite, you’ll want to be ready.
Have an open mind
You may have your eyes set on a specific type of fish, but you need to remember that there’s an entire ocean out there. Find out in advance about the kind of fish that are likely to be around that part of the ocean where you’re heading at the time of your trip. You might be surprised what you may find on your first deep-sea fishing trip.
Also, remember to pack any medications you take (including motion sickness medication).
Always remember you’re there to have a good time, breathe in the fresh air, enjoy the sea, and keep your eyes open!
