In our last blog post, we started talking about a few tips that you can take with you to your saltwater fishing trip. Though it may not seem like it’s extremely different, saltwater fishing does call for some different types of approach in order for them to be just as successful. The two tips that we covered in the last post will definitely prove to be helpful, but they aren’t the only tips that you’ll need while you head out there. Let’s dive into some more of the things that you can do to make this your best fishing trip yet.
Be Aware of Your Surroundings
One of the most important things that you’ll have to remember with the change of setting is the environment that it comes with. There are some areas that are especially dangerous just because of the saltwater that comes through and affects these areas.
The area that you’re going to want to be most aware of is the ground that you’re walking on. While that is a safety factor, one of the incredible parts of your surrounding that you’ll be able to keep an eye out for are the dark troughs in the water that fish will flow through. These troughs serve as a river of sorts for fish to travel through.
The trick with these is that if you are fishing in these specific troughs, you’re going to want to treat their flow the same way that you would treat the flow of the river. Being cautious of the way that the water changes as you move along and shift the positioning for your fishing trip will help you prepare for the water and the type of fish that you’re going to catch, which is the only way that you’ll be successful.
Equipment & Gear
One of the biggest changes that you’ll see when you switch to saltwater is they type of gear and equipment that you’re using. The salt in the water is pretty tough on equipment, which is why having the right type of equipment and apparel is a must. However, something that is really nice about this type of fishing is that you really don’t need too much. Bring a few 7-foot or 8-foot rods out, some 15-pound-test braid, and your standard tackle box.
These really are all that you need. If you’re going to be fishing in deeper water, make sure to account for heavier fish. This could translate into getting some thicker, more durable fishing line, but also the equipment that you need to remove the fish from the hook, like pliers.
When it comes to the apparel, Mojo Sportswear has got you taken care of. We’ve designed a line of clothes that are custom for the type of work that you’ll be doing while you’re out on the water. Each of the pieces that we’ve designed makes it easy to stay out in the sun for long periods of time, keep cool, and make your favorite shirts last longer. The material that we use is intended to be blood and stain resistant but is also meant to minimize any hooks that may get stuck.
All of these are issues fishermen often see, especially on large bodies of water, such as most saltwater fishing spots. Check out the apparel that we have and make sure that you’re prepared for the trip that you have coming up.
