Deep Sea Fishing

Deep Sea FishingStan Loomis has many hobbies, such as chartering his yacht and deep sea fishing.

Deep sea fishing is a very adventurous sport that is not only fun, but also economically beneficial. By going out to the deeper waters, a fisherman is exposed to a new pool of deep sea fish that require deeper and more open water to feed- and they will definitely put up a fight! To be considered deep sea fishing territory, the water must be at least 30 meters deep.

The article General Fishing Tips for Deep Ocean Fishing offers firsthand information that Stan Loomis believes is most helpful for a successful fishing trip.

The right equipment- heavy equipment such as reels, rods, nets, tackles, and lines are necessary for deep sea fishing. As Tuna, mackerel, marlin, sharks, swordfish, red herring, and kingfish are the most common catch, the equipment should hold a minimum of 30 pounds.

Live bait- When choosing bait, it is important to offer kinds that bigger fish typically feed on. This may mean researching the preying habits and habitat of large fish. Mackerel herring, lungworms, threadfin, hermit crabs, and pilchards are the usually the best option.

No scents or perfumes- Soaps, sunscreens, and other scents are sure to keep the fish as far as possible, so it is important to use non scented soaps before baiting. Furthermore, try to handle the bait as little as possible.

Experienced tour operator- The most important advice is to choose a reputable guide, as deep sea fishing can be very dangerous. Safety is the number one concern and no one should be put at risk because of neglected safety precautions. Ask for credentials, permits, insurances, and any questions that will put you at ease.
