Essentials to Remember to Catch the Big One when Fishing in Florida Keys

Category: Fishing Information and Tips

 It's been said that the whale in the novel "Moby Dick" isn't just a whale, but rather a symbol for a man's object of obsession which can cause his destruction. For fishing enthusiasts, however, such fanciful ideas are irrelevant as they are true sportsmen aiming to catch the big one. If you plan to do some fishing in Florida Keys, it would be helpful to follow these tips:

Use the right lure and bait.

When fishing with rod and reel, you have the choice between using live bait or artificial lures, depending, of course, on the fish you aim to catch. While live baits are, undoubtedly, the most attractive to fish, many artificial lures convincingly mimic delectable creatures like squid or baitfish when trolled behind a boat or reeled in quickly.

Use the right tackle.

There are various rods and reels you can use to catch the big one, and they largely depend on your fishing spot and the gamefish you are after. Saltwater tackle can vary from heavy trolling rigs, surf-casting rods, spinning rods, and even flyfishing setups, especially in the Florida Keys where Bonefish, Snook, Redfish, Tarpon and Permit can be hooked in the shallows. Be sure to choose the appropriate line weight, length, power, and action for the kind of casting you aim to do.

Use the right method.

The techniques in sport fishing in the ocean are varied. Beaches are often lined with anglers wielding long rods as they surf cast for bluefish, seabass, and other species. Many other anglers do more relaxed in-shore fishing, dropping their lines off a dock or boat. The ultimate rush, though, comes from deep-sea fishing in which massive fishes like tunas, dorados, billfish, sharks, and mackerel can be taken while trolling from a boat.

Use the right boat.

When you choose a Florida Keys boat rental company, inspect the fishing boat assigned to you; and make sure it’s in perfect condition. Familiarize yourself with its steering design and controls. Remember, boats are constructed differently; with some designed for shallow water handling, and others requiring deep water under the keel. For your safety, rent a charter boat from one of the companies listed in sites like Islamorada Fishing Source, which provides a comprehensive roster of fishing boat and equipment suppliers.
