Saltwater Fishing Tackle
Saltwater fishing tackle is unique compared to other types of fishing tackle.
The rods and the reels are bigger than with freshwater, you use live baits and the tackle is a lot stronger that when freshwater fishing. The main reasons for this is that saltwater fish are normally much bigger than any freshwater fish.
Another big difference in saltwater tackle is the water itself. Because of the high salt content normal freshwater fishing reels and rods have a tendency to rust if the salt is not removed properly. Saltwater tackle on the other hand has been treated to make sure that the tackle doesn’t rust when exposed to the saltwater.
Some information on Saltwater Fishing:
Saltwater fishing can be done either out on the open seas or from the coast or the rocks. Each one has different types of saltwater fish that you will be able to catch and as such you will need different tackle for each type.
Types of saltwater fish mostly being caught are Barracuda, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Dorado, Galjoen, Yellowfin Tuna, Kob, Red Steenbras, Sailfish, Shad, Striped Marlin and many other. Each with their own set of fishing tackle and baits.
When going out on the open seas with a qualified skipper you can go fishing for the giants of the seas, fish such as Marlin, Sharks and Sailfish. These monsters offer a fishing experience un-like any other fish that you will probably ever be able to catch. If you get the opportunity to go deep sea fishing then it is certainly not something that you should let pass by.
