Are you excited about getting into offshore fishing? But you’re not quite sure if you’ll be any good or not? A lot of people share those same concerns. It can be understood why you might be nervous about offshore fishing. It is sort of a nervous task. Being on a boat, hooking the live bait, throwing your line to the sea, and waiting for a catch. Then when you get the catch you don’t know what to do. Your mind will freeze up and you might push when you need to pull, reel when you’re supposed to let the line loose. Before you know it you’ve lost your big catch of the day. But don’t worry, this article will help you bypass all those beginner mistakes, and get you to start fishing in a tip-top way. Here are 4 ways you can get better at offshore fishing.
#4- Use Colorful Lines
A lot of people always opt for the standard transparent line when they go offshore fishing. But little do people know that there are a bevy of line options to choose from. One reason why transparent lines might not be the best choice is because you tend to lose track of them after you’ve thrown them into the water. Using colorful fishing lines will help you track where your line is at all times and will make the chances of you losing your catch a lot less. If you’re a beginner, then you want to start out with a nice, bright colorful line so that it can be visible for you all the time.
#3- Always Have A Fishing Partner
You should always go fishing with a partner or -if you can manage it- a professional like Captain Rich Smith. Having a professional around will be beneficial because they will help guide you and walk you through what you need to do, how you need to hook your bait, how you need to reel in your fish, and more. Even if the person is not a professional, just a regular fisherman like you, they can still help with encouragement and helping you set up your, and with the reel-in process.
#2- Keep a Journal
Keeping a fishing journal will help you look back at the day’s production so that you can assess it and learn from it. You can write all types of information in the journal like where you went fishing, what bait you used, what fish you caught, and other useful information that you can learn from. This can be a physical journal like a copybook, or you can even tape your fishing journeys and then watch them back later that day.
#1- Practice Makes Perfect
Ultimately, the best way to get better at offshore fishing is to practice, practice, practice. You have to keep honing your craft and your skills by constantly performing the activity and looking for a way to get better at it.
