Deep sea fishing

This type of fishing generally requires a decent amount of travelling away from land. You will be fishing in potentially large depths of water but generally chasing tuna or marlin type species that live closer to the surface. Famous pioneers like Ernest Hemingway made deep sea fishing and big game fishing very popular. For deep sea fishing large, expensive boats and strong fishing tackle are required.

Equipment required for Deep sea fishing

With the need to be in the deep waters a boat is an obvious requirement for deep-sea fishing. You will also potentially use a game chair onboard the boat to assist with landing the game fish you are targetting. A strong rod, reel and line combination is also just as important.

Species to target when Deep sea fishing

Fish species big and small can be caught using this technique. Smaller species often caught include wahoo, dorado, barracuda and smaller tuna species.

The above species are usually caught as a result of fishermen targetting larger tuna, marlin or shark species.

Best Places to try Deep sea fishing

This type of fishing is famous in areas such as Spain and Portugal in Europe as well as many locations in Australia and the United States.

It is also possible in many other areas around the world where deep water and larger fish species are found regularly.
