When sea fishing, whether you are fishing from the shore, a pier, or a boat, you need to ensure that you have the most appropriate fishing tackle. For example, while shorter rods tend to be better suited to pier fishing because of the limited space, longer rods will be required for beach casting to ensure that you can cast out far enough to enable a decent catch. Similarly, the water conditions and the type of fish that you are hoping to lure will determine the types of sea fishing tackle, such as lines and hooks, and the breed of fish that you are angling for will certainly dictate the type of bait you use. Wherever you fish from, sea fishing presents its own unique set of challenges, including the typically harsh and difficult conditions in which you will be fishing.
Having the right fishing accessories, including everything from fishing tackle boxes to waterproof clothing, will help ensure that you have as positive an experience as possible while trying to land a catch.
Shore fishing relies heavily on being able to cast long distances, and you should choose fishing tackle that enables you to achieve this. Once a shore angler has cast their line, they will usually place it against a rod rest and wait for a catch to tug at the rod. The whole rig needs to be strong and powerful, in order that it doesn't easily break or snap while being used. A need to cast 100m or further from the shore also means that a large rod with a long sea fishing reel is necessary.
A specialist beach caster rod offers a casting distance of up to nearly 200m, although it will take a lot of practice and skill to achieve this kind of distance. At Gerry's Fishing, we not only have beach caster rods but we have a large selection of terminal beach fishing tackle. We can provide bait and, if you are fishing around the Morecambe area, we are happy to discuss possible fishing spots with you too.
Buy heavy duty reels, heavy weights, and strong reels, in order to ensure the strength and suitability of your rig.
Pier fishing naturally requires less casting ability and a shorter casting distance. This, combined with the limited availability of space that is usually available, means that you will need a shorter rod. This also means that you will be able to support and catch larger and stronger fish, as long as you buy the fishing tackle to match your pier fishing needs.
Although you will have more direct access to deeper water when fishing from a pier, you still need to clear the pier itself in order to land your line in the depth of water you want. Buy a short rod, strong line, and bait and sea fishing tackle to match the fish you are hunting.
Similarly to pier fishing, boat sea fishing does not require the use of a long line. Anglers usually take the boat out into the depth of water that they want to fish, and then cast close to the boat. This means that shorter sea fishing rods may only be 2m in length but this allows for the catching of stronger fish too. You can use longer rods if you wish; choose according to where you are fishing as well as your own personal preference when choosing sea fishing rigs.
If you are looking to make a record sea fishing catch, then at Gerry's of Morecambe we have everything from sturdy boat poles to strong and durable terminal fishing tackle. For the largest fish, you should also buy boat reels.
One of the most popular breeds of fish for anglers buying sea fishing tackle in the UK is bass. We are privy to some of the largest and greatest examples. We have one of the best selections of fishing tackle for bass fishing so that you can create the ideal rig setup. We have specialist tackle that is designed solely for the purpose of catching some of our largest shore-based fish breeds.
