Saltwater Fishing

Choose a good fishing ground, but also to determine the specific fishing position. The natural environment of the ocean is more complex, and fishing should be considered from a variety of factors. There are a few general principles that apply.

First, should try to choose sea fishing, avoid shallows. The shallows are full of sunlight, most fish have a light protection, generally only at night and in the morning and evening activities in the shallows.

Second, in the bay fishing should choose stagnant water area. Stagnation area in inland sea, including river estuary, living wharf, breakwater, etc. These places are more underwater silt or sand, slow water, rich bait, generally more fish.

Third, reef fishing should be selected to face the impact of the sea tide, that is, commonly known as the tide surface. Tide surfaces are also ideal for fishing because they are rich in plankton and produce oxygen when they collide with rocks.

Sea-fishing, like freshwater fishing, in the same waters with the same equipment, can sometimes produce very different catches. In addition to the difference of fishing technique, season, wind direction, bait and other reasons, the more important is the correct selection of fishing position.

Rocky fishing spot selection

Rock fishing originally refers to a kind of ocean fishing activities or fishing methods carried out in the coastal areas such as the headland of the mountains, the front of the cliffs and the vicinity of the rocks on the continental shelf extending into the sea. With the development of sea fishing activities in recent years, the modern interpretation of rock fishing has broken the traditional concept of rock fishing. Rock fishing has been transferred from shore to islands and rocks in the ocean, and it is subdivided into heavy and light rock fishing according to different fishing methods. But everything changes, the choice of the right and otherwise is the first condition of rock fishing.

(1) The selection of fishing spots for rock bluff fishing

This kind of fishing method of its station selection in the sea on the cliff. Its fishing tackle is equipped with several long-cast fishing rods, and its casting distance is mostly more than 60 or 70 meters. The pole tip and the sea surface are basically 45° baits to resist the impact of the sea current. This kind of fishing method in the fishing position, fishing spot selection, must master the most critical point that is to find the right "fishway". Because of the sea cliff more commanding, the vast sea vision is open, anglers can be observed with the naked eye to find fishing points.

Marine fish habitat, cruise, foraging in the underwater reef and Marine plants as well as the edge of the current through the area, this, fishermen can be determined according to the color of the sea and the shadow of the underwater fishing position. The entire surface of the water is blue, and parts of the water are scattered dark blue or dark blue, which can be identified as the growth of underwater reefs or Marine plants. On the surface of the sea, the curved "white band" of swimming changes of different width and width is the area through which the current flows. For this reason, the selection of fishing spots for rock bluff fishing should be in the area defined above, the critical area or the edge zone of current activity. The main reasons for this choice are as follows: First, there are many crustaceans such as oysters, shrimps and crabs living near the underwater reefs and Marine plants. It provides a convenient precondition for fish to forage; The second is the reef between the gullies, gaps and caves, is the fish habitat and escape natural enemies refuge. In addition, Marine fish mostly swim with the ocean current, and the dissolved oxygen in the surrounding waters is more abundant than that in other waters, which provides a favorable precondition for the foraging activity of Marine fish.

(2) The choice of fishing position in the reef castle:

This fishing method of the station selection in the fall according to the tide and exposed to the reef, reef fort on. Its fishing tackle is equipped with 1 to 2 long sandpole. The method of 90° vertical fishing with the sea surface is adopted. But the key point must be careful to grasp the tide change time, the lowest point to fish.

This method of fishing point selection should be deep trenches, reefs between the cracks. And we should pay attention to the "go fishing method", not like rock cliff fishing "stick". No fish here, no fish there. Go "deep" while you fish, until you reach the lowest point of the tide (but do not risk going there). This point choice mainly because, when the tide falling, the original high tide submerged in underwater reef exposed gradually, can be directly below the surface forms of trench, aperture, and second, with the whereabouts of the tide, the more fish in the shallow water area before the tide back all are free in situ and pd to the deep trench, cracks in hiding, is the perfect time to catch. The author for many years in the reef castle rocky fishing when many use this method, once in the southern part of the city "bang hammer island" sea area and "stone trough" sea area and so on, hand holding a pole "catch the tide "(that is, according to the tide time change fishing), often not cheap fish.

(3) Selection of fishing spots for island and reef fishing

This kind of fishing method requires corresponding objective conditions in the geographical environment, that is, there are islands or reefs in a distance along the coast, and it needs to be carried by ships, so it is more complex than the rock strata, reef forts and rocky fishing along the coast. But because it is far away from the land road, few people live, the relative fish situation is better than the coast, in recent years this fishing method is more popular.

Island and reef fishing, most of the selection of fishing sites in the current through the island and large rock reef standing on the sea surface. First, the depth of this kind of fishing point, more channel branching, the scope of current activities is wider, the second is less people to go, the density of the fish is larger, the island, reef is a variety of fish migration "post", more in this to avoid the wind and waves and reserve "physical ability" and crazy foraging, and the lack of fear. In this regard, the choice of fishing spots can vary according to different fishing methods. Just because the islands and reefs are located in deep water, the distance of casting line is relatively much closer, and the trenches and crevices are also easy to find, which is much "superior" to coastal rock fishing. The selection of fishing spots can be "adjusted to local conditions", which is similar to the above coastal cliffs and reef forts. However, the sites of island and reef fishing are mostly reef-cluster ridge and narrow relative range. Therefore, we should try our best to choose the crevices in the abrupt sea, the cliff like sea gullies and large reefs under the water as the fishing spots.
