Beginners Guide to Fishing

I sometimes get customers who haven't fished before anywhere. That's ok but keep in mind several things. First is that this is a light tackle sport fishing trip and it does cost hard earned money. I don't troll so it is up to you to do the actual fishing , fighting , and catching. It would help to have at least a rudimentary knowledge or ability to operate a spinning reel. I can deal with an individual but a boat load would be a bit much. I want you to enjoy a trip and catch fish, but you have to help me do that. Practice casting and retrieving before you charter and that would help greatly. I'll show you our techniques once you're here. You can pick my brain for info on fishing for other species, fresh or salt water and I'll be happy to oblige.

Basic fishing tackle


Fishing tackle is equipment you use to get live or artificial bait into the water, dangling in front of the fish. It's not necessary to have a lot of tackle if you are just taking up the sport of fishing, but you do need basic and proper tackle. If you are a beginner, it's best to keep tackle to a minimum until you hone your skills. Then, and only then is the time to try more advanced tackle.
