All about fishing

  1. 1. Big Game Fishing|5 Areas to Improve in Doing Tarpon Fishing & Marlin Fishing Successfully Big game fishing, which includes marlin fishing and tarpon fishing, is one of the more challenging sportfishing activities, due to the size of the game you are trying to capture. Depending on the waters that you are trying to test, plus the gear that you brought with you, it is very possible to catch that big fish, if you know how to use your skills, rod, and bait correctly. Here are five areas to work on (and how to improve them) to have leverage over that saltwater giant that you want to reel in. Locating the Fish  Tarpons and marlins like warm saltwater. The best time to do tarpon fishing is during their mating season (around May), and August and September months are the best to do marlin fishing.  Tarpons are easier to catch in beaches and under large bridges, while marlins are often group travelers in the deep.  The best way to locate them is always to have a good captain that would guide you where they are normally found. It is also a good idea if you want to travel in other waters such as Costa Rica and Mexico to find them. Using Your Bait  The best natural baits would be the threadfin herring, shad, and crabs. Tarpons are not picky when it comes to baits though – they would eat anything, dead or alive, that you place in the water near them.
  2. 2.  Marlins are best fed when they try to eat the bait. It is also wise to use fewer baits to be sure where the fish would go.  Make sure that you watch your teasers and the bait. The idea is to have the rod in your hands before the fish touches the bait. These fishes act fast, and they can put up a little fight when caught, so be prepared. Buying Rods and Reels  Most rod manufacturers would provide you specs that you could choose from when it comes to big game fishing, but it is important that you anticipate the weight of the fish that you would reel in.  Big game rods normally have stainless steel roller guides, which makes them ideal for stand-up fishing and trolling, while reducing stress and friction on the lines during a fight. The longer foam grips on these rods would also make them ideal when handling heavier fish.  To make sure that your rod would not break, make sure that you use composite rods, which is sensitive and tough, thanks to its fiberglass and graphite materials. It is also flexible enough to prevent breakage. Fish Catching Skills  When you hook up the fish, you may feel that screaming drag in your hands. Don’t reel the fish in so quickly – make use of the elasticity of the nylon and the length of your line. Chase the fish to a more open location and enjoy the fight.  If you released other baits, watch them first and see if there are other fishes that would get caught in them. That’s the time to get to a chase and try to reel them in. Catching and Releasing Right  Make sure that you are using circular hooks, instead of J hooks. That would lessen the injury in the fish.
  3. 3.  Avoid fighting or chasing the fish too long. Take note that if you are fishing in the deeper waters, lurking sharks may be watching the fight, too. Catch and release the fish quickly for it not to be too exhausted upon release. The Ultimate Newbie Fishing Guide | 6 Tips on How to Fish like a Pro Fishing like a pro is not rocket science – you just have to have the right set of gear and skills to help you have leverage over the fish that you want to catch. This fishing guide would not only teach you how to fish, but also help you get the right gear and experience of a pro 1. Choose the right rod. Normally, rods are made with graphite, fiberglass, or composite (the combination of both materials). Composite rods would lend you the strength of the fiberglass and the flexibility and sensitivity of graphite, but they normally would cost more. However, it is wise to choose the more expensive but better quality rods – you would be surprised how much you would be spending if you keep on choosing lesser quality rods that would break easily. 2. Choose the right hooks. If you intend to catch fish that you would like to take home, it is okay to buy J hooks. However, if you want to catch and release the fish afterwards, choose circular hooks or any barbless solitary hook, since these would not injure the fish.
  4. 4. 3. Research on locations of different fish, or hire someone who knows them best. The Internet is home to a lot of resources of known gaming fish locations, whether they are freshwater or saltwater dwellers. However, if you want to fish locally, make sure that you keep a record of where and when you would see the fish. If you want to fish in a lot of areas in the Atlantic using a boat, it would be wise to hire a good captain that can bring you to ideal fishing locations in different waters. 4. Work on your footwork. All kinds of fishing guide are active and a small disturbance in the water can immediately drive them away. When walking through river, be careful to not create too much noise. At the same time, refrain from talking too loudly, or operating any noisy machinery. 5. Check the weather before heading out. The weather is the ultimate guide when it comes to knowing if it would be safe to head out, and what you should wear. While there are people who actually prefer to fish on a bad weather, it might not be wise to follow suit, especially if you are not familiar with the waters yet. 6. Select the right bait. Yes, there are baits created to lure different kinds of fish, and there are fishes that are quite picky when it comes to baits. Earthworms are universal
  5. 5. baits when it comes to freshwater fish, but leeches would attract more fish at once. Artificial baits would also do the same trick, depending on what type of insect or fish they imitate.

This report would tell you how likely it is to catch anything, based on other fishermen’s experiences. Based on what other anglers tell about how they think different factors affected their fishing, it would tell you if it would be ideal to go trout fishing for the day. Reading it would save you a lot of time and money, and it would allow you to prepare better for your day near the waters. Here are the reasons why: 1. It tells you if you would catch trout today. It is very frustrating to wait all day by the river or lake, and then feel like there is no trout likely to show up at any time. Reading the report would allow you to prepare different baits and tackles that other anglers recommend. Note that there are sites that do hourly reports, and it would be ideal to stay tuned to know what kinds of fish are likely to bite during your fishing time. 2. It would help you know what kind of clothing you should wear. The report would also tell recommendations about the ideal clothing gear, and reading it would tell you what to wear while you are out there. Being dressed right would allow you to stay by the water more comfortably, and it would allow you to fish for longer hours.
  6. 6. 3. The sun and the moon have impact on fish activity. You may have known the universal claim that fish breed and feed mostly during dusk or dawn, and it is the perfect time to catch trout. However, certain solar and lunar activities also have impact on fish activity. The report would tell you about these astronomical activities and let you know how likely it is to catch the fish of your choice when they happen. 4. It gives information about water clarity. You may rely on the drag to tell you if you were about to catch a trout, but a better angler would rely on his eyes. The report would tell you about the clarity of water in your area, and if you think it is muddy, you would have to find the statistics on the chances of fish travelling to clearer areas. This would help you in finding the best position to cast your lines. With our luxury fishing service at http://royal-safari.com you will get the best access to all fishing places all over the year. 5. It tells you about the seasonal patterns and trout activity. The report also acts like an almanac of some sorts which tells you about trout activity in your area – like any living animal, trout reacts to water temperature, pressure, salinity, and everything else that would happen in their natural habitat. Not only does the report help you know the best tactics in catching trout, it also helps you understand the fish’s behavior better. That prepares you well in fishing in other areas to catch other kinds of trout.
  7. 7. 5 Tips on Catching Fresh Water Fish | How to be an Angler in Rivers and Lakes Freshwater fishing is one of the things that you could enjoy by yourself or with the rest of the family. These five tips would teach you how to get started with this recreation, and how to catch more fish in a single fishing day out. Get the ideal angling gear The right rod would depend on the type of fish that you intend to catch, but having a composite rod, which is made of mixed graphite and fiberglass, would allow you to have a rod that can take on majority of fresh water fish. At the same time, you should also prepare a bait bag, which you can fill up while you are scouting for the right location. Choose the right bait When choosing the right bait for fresh water fishing, make sure that you are selecting the ones that are most attractive to the fish that you are trying to lure. The most accessible bait is the earthworm, followed by grasshoppers and leeches. You can also choose artificial baits that would look like insects to attract fish. When attaching bait to the hook, make sure that your hands do not smell that can repel to the fish, like smoke. This would improve the chance that your bait would indeed attract the fish.
  8. 8. Read fishing reports before you head out These reports are very ideal to read because they don’t only tell you about the likelihood of getting a particular fish in your area, they also tell you when fishes are most abundant, depending on several factors. These reports are heavily relied on by anglers, beginners or pros alike. Look for the direction of the wind and water Note that it is also very important to note where the wind is blowing and where the body of water flows, because baitfish or insects are normally blown to the downwind area of the body of water. Where these animals go is where the game fish would swim to feed. Shores are also excellent locations – you get more bites there. Mossy areas are also ideal for casting baits, since fishes also go there to hunt for food. For salmon fishing, head towards the surf, or the gut at the river mouth. Make sure you bring something to help you keep your patience You may not get a bite immediately, so it is very important to be patient. Take a book or a radio with you to help you while away time waiting for fish. 5 Tips on Saltwater Fishing | How to Do Tuna Fishing like a Pro Angler Fishing in saltwater is done on the shore, boat, or pier, and the type of gear that you need to have would largely depend on the type of fish that you want to catch. However, the way you handle your resources and catch your fish would define your skill as an angler. Here are some ways on how to make sure you would always get a good catch.
  9. 9. Keep Your Live Bait in Good Shape If you prefer to use live bait in saltwater fishing, it is important that it is in the best condition possible to make sure that it would do the job of attracting fish. If you use aquatic bait such as minnows, an aerator that would keep the right oxygen level in the bait tank would help. Get a Good Spot Location is one of the most important things that you need to know, especially if you are trying to get a particular type of fish. Fishing maps can be useful, and if you are particularly interested in tuna fishing, it would be important to know what type of ocean structures they frequent form breeding and feeding. You won’t need to buy these maps – there is plenty of free research on the Internet. Practice Knotting A knot would often separate a catch from a runaway fish, and it is important to secure your fishing knot that can retain its full strength. Mastering the bimini knot would allow you to get that result. Talk to Locals in a Fishing Area The best resources about tuna fishing activities would be the fisherfolk. They would guide you on the best shops for tackle and the best bait to use for a particular fishing season. They would also guide you on the best chartered boats in the area, with a good captain that can bring you to the best locations for hunting tuna. While you’re at it, you may also want to join angling clubs to help you cut cost by fishing together in a boat. Make Sure You Treat the Fish Right You get to experience the best saltwater fishing in certain territories because of responsible anglers, so make sure that you follow their lead. To do that, avoid using hooks that would injure the fish, which would make it vulnerable once you release it back in the water. Use circular hooks instead.
  10. 10. To make sure that the fish would survive, make sure that you do not get the catch out of the water longer than you can hold your breath, and as much as possible, do not touch it to preserve the slime that protects the game’s body from bacteria. Always do catch-and-release during mating season to help them preserve their species.
