Deep sea bottom fishing

 

 Different types of Deep Sea Fishing

There are many different ways to catch a fish, and the method you choose will depend on the fish you are trying to catch, as well as the

time of day and how they are feeding or presenting in the area of Sea where you are fishing. The most common types of sport fishing are

trolling, chumming, popping, and jigging. The most popular method to fish for Tuna, Marlin, Wahoo, even Mahi- Mahi is by trolling.

Depending on the species you are trying to catch you’ll want to maintain a speed of 6– 10 knots. The deeper you set your bait, the slower

you’ll want to troll.

 Where you choose to troll will also depend on what species you are expecting to catch, as well as the bait fish spotted in the area.

Trolling is effective with all kinds of lures and bait, which on one hand can be great, but on the other hand may make it hard to choose

what to use. It’s ideal to have a good variety of options onboard, and be ready to switch things up. But, one thing is for sure: it won’t be

boring! Favorite all-purpose baits are squid, and it’s common to Jigging is another way to draw a large fish to the surface. 

In these scenarios, the boat will be drifting along an underwater the sea mount or ridge.

Anglers will drop lines with lures at different depths and jig to attract the bite. The best place to drop a jig is in the middle of a bait school.

 

Deep Sea Bottom Fishing

Even when you are far out in 150 to 200 FT water you can go bottom fishing. Bottom fishing scores a different kind of fish, demersal

instead of pelagic. Demersal fish live and feed on or near the bottom of the sea in the demersal zone.

The objective for rigs that are used in bottom fishing is to take your bait to the bottom, where the water hits the sand, and lure in the

fish. Bottom fishing mostly uses live bait like squid also uses artificial lures but.

Fishing is done when the boat is stopped (anchored or drifting over “spots” where fish are known to lurk in shallow water – 100 – 300

feet deep.)  

By dropping a weighted line in the desired location, you can catch a number of demersal fish such as snapper, grouper, and more.

The bait, of course, has to be appetizing to the fish, which is why live bait is often used more often than artificial lures.
