Different Kinds of Fishing

different kinds of fishingThere are many different kinds of fishing to choose from. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced fisherman looking for some variety, these types of fishing are worth a try:

  1. Fly Fishing – This angling method uses an artificial fly as bait. You can purchase a variety of flies to use to catch different fish or hand tie your own. Fly fishing uses a different casting method than other types of fishing, and uses special line as well. Fly fisherman mostly catch trout, grayling and salmon, but can also catch bass, pike, and carp, as well as redfish and tarpon. This style of fishing has been around since the end of the 2nd century.
  2. Deep Sea Fishing – If you go deep sea fishing you can catch huge fish that you wouldn’t catch anywhere else, such as marlins, swordfish, and tuna. You must be fishing in waters as deep as 30 meters in order for it to be considered deep sea fishing. The bait used is usually other small fish such as mackerel. Deep sea fishing requires a lot of patience since larger fish take much longer to get tired and to be reeled in.
  3. Ice Fishing – You’ll want to bundle up but this can be one of the most fun fishing experiences you’ve ever had. You have to have the right equipment – an ice drill, short poles, and plenty of warm clothing. Some people even bring a tent or hut that can go on top of the hole you make in the ice so that you can fish shielded from the elements.
  4. Shark Fishing – Not for the faint of heart. If it’s your first experience you’ll want to go with someone who knows what they are doing. Reeling in a shark can be extremely tiring, so make sure you have someone who can take over if you run out of steam. Shark fishing can be one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life, but it can be dangerous. Bait the sharks with squid, shrimp, or other small fish.
  5. Lake Fishing – Fishing out on the lake can be very relaxing. You’ll want to get on the lake early in the morning when fish are hungry. If you have a small boat, drive out onto the lake slowly and then kill the engine and wait. Fish won’t come near you until the motor has been off for a while. You can drop your line and just wait, you don’t need to recast your line very often.

Whichever way you choose to fish, be safe and have fun. If you catch anything, be sure to bring your fillet knife set so you can cook your spoils.
