The scream of a tightly stretched line when a fish strikes is no less than a pulse racing experience for me. From fantastic landscapes to luxurious surroundings, deep sea fishing experience is truly one-of-a-kind. It was early July, and I thought it was a good time to take my family along with me for an awesome deep sea charter fishing trip. So we booked a charter and headed straight towards eastern Caribbean route.
They say that even a bad day at fishing is better than a good day at work. Probably, these are the same guys who consider fishing to be almost an alternate religion. And I must admit that I am no different from them.
Deep sea fishing – Getting closer to the action
For me, being close to the untamed and spectacular nature is a big attraction of deep sea fishing. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a beginner, I feel deep sea charter fishing is always an incredibly exciting experience. The moment me and my family stepped on our deep sea fishing charter, we realized how exhilarating the experience is going to be, much of which came from not knowing what sea creatures are lurking under water. Our charter was equipped with world-class chair in the cockpit. Additionally, guests on our charter could enjoy their fishing experience on a smaller console boat with a local guard to get even closer to the action.
As per our captain, the deeper the water, the bigger is the fish. It feels great to share with you all that we spotted Wahoo, King Fish, Tuna, Barracuda, White and Red Groupers, Bass, Catfish, Mackerel and Mahi Mahi among others. The journey was worth every minute. Interestingly, we had options for snorkeling as well. This gave us a chance to view the beautiful coral reefs and the aquatic life closely. My kids were excited to know that our deep sea charter fishing trip also includes custom dives with a local guide. This gave us an opportunity to find our own lobsters or even conch for a healthy and tasty conch salad.
While we were on board, our captain gave us few tips on deep sea fishing such as:
Large game fish are found near reefsLarge game fish can also be spotted under floating debrisTuna is generally found near schools of DolphinsDeep sea fishing charters – A luxurious experience
I feel it’s always wise to hire deep sea fishing charters because:
The captain and the crew of a charter exactly knows what to fish for and whereCharters provide special equipment’s to their customers beyond a single reel/rodCharters plan, pack and prepare for overnight fishing tripsCharters often take customers to fish off reefs, wrecks and oil rigsChoose your rod with care
Here I’d like to add that those who are new to fishing should choose their rods carefully. You can look out for graphite fishing rods. Get fishing rods based on your fishing experience and skill. Also choose your bait wisely. For artificial bait, colorful lures work best. For Shrimps, Minnows, Squids and Mackerels, good live baits work. Sharks get attracted to bloody baits.
Look no further – It’s time to set out
So what are you waiting for? Instead of visiting a quaint village or the same old theme park, why don’t you take your family for deep sea charter fishing this vacation? Go ahead and enjoy excellent fishing in uncrowded, pristine water where there’s plenty of adventure you’ve hardly experienced before.
