Big Game Fishing Tips
If you’re a fisherman with some experience and you want to get bigger thrills on the next fishing level then big game fishing you know requires an amount of previous experience of any type of sport fishing. You don’t have to rig your tackle, bait a hook, cast a line, navigate or get a beer. But know your way to the boats washroom just in case!
In big game fishing, whether at home or vacationing in some coastal country, what you need first of all is money, a good clean boat, a captain that knows his way around good fishing spots and a trained crew! Once called deep-sea fishing in another era, now big game fishing refers to sport fishing for big game fish species. Marlin, sailfish, swordfish, all sorts of tuna and shark are big game potentials. A good captain will know what sort of best rigs to use in his fishing area.
If you have time on your hands, check out their flyer's and see what they have to offer.
Visiting the docks when big game boats return and see what kind of species they are fishing, it will tell you where you´re at.
Talk with the passengers when they leave and ask about their experience, boat management and if they would do it again in the same boat.
Ask how many times they have come with big game fish and how many they have docked empty handed. It does happen at times.
Inspect the boat if you can after a big game fishing trip.
The boat will not look its finest on its return from a day’s fishing trip, mostly smelly and with blood from the catch all over but it will show you the essentials.
But is it clean and well maintained? Does it have proper radio equipment? Long wave and or Short wave radio installed?
Remember that your cell phone out in the blue will probably not have reception.
Does it have life saving equipment and raft? Is it inspected yearly by a coastal authority?
Is the running gear and fishing tackle well kept so they won’t have to deal with it and waist time when you go out?
Differences in costs depend mainly on how far the fishing boat must go to reach main fishing waters, but you can settle that nicely with the captain before you ship off.
