Bottom fishing is probably one of the easiest methods of fishing, the technique is really simple, consisting in a rig for fishing on the bottom with a weight attached to the line, and a hook at the end of the line.
For bottom fishing, you will require either a simple rod and reel set up or it is even possible to complete this fishing technique with just a handline.
You will also require a sharp hook, some bait suitable for the area and most importantly a lead weight used to sink your line to the bottom of the water.
You can use this method in almost any body of water around the world as long as you know there are fish species that feed close to the bottom of the water.
Try this technique in dams, lakes, rivers or even the ocean. It is also possible to complete from a boat or while fishing on land.
