Fishing has many sides to it and, although it is sometimes dubbed as a boring sport, the likes of sea fishing is anything but. Not only doe they provide the opportunity to delve into deeper waters and leave the shore behind but they can also be quite dangerous.

Some people love nothing more than relaxing by the side of a river bank on a Sunday afternoon, and while this is lovely, some require more of a challenge and a change in scenery. Going further afield and venturing beyond the shore once in a while provides a bit of variety and new experiences.

Sea angling by boat or kayak is not only fun, but there is also a greater opportunity to catch rarer species than shore anglers such as fish from the ray family, tope and sharks. Underwater structures such as wrecks, reefs and sandbanks are an excellent habitat for fish and you find will that they vary in species.

For sea anglers who plan to delve into deep waters and aim to catch large fish then boat rods and reels are a necessity, like the Fladen Charter boat rod or Shakespeare Salt boat rod as they have tremendous power, balance and resistance. Fly, bait and lure fishing can all be used to entice sea fish, but fly fishing is becoming increasingly popular and is definitely worth a try.

Some of the dangers around sea and salt water fishing is, quite obviously, the weather. Always check the forecast for how strong the wind is forecasted to be, and in which direction it is expected. Summer is the opportune time for offshore fishing but that doesn’t mean it will be plain sailing. Waters may be calm in the morning but, as with anytime of the year, this could all change in the afternoon.

There are many charter boats and trips, as well as clubs for saltwater fishing and they are a great way to try out offshore fishing and can be great fun!
