Offshore fishing lets you experience the thrill of catching some of the biggest fish you’ve ever seen.
Unlike when you fish on the bay, heading offshore gives you a chance to haul in the biggest beasts of the fishing world.
If you’re not familiar with offshore fishing -- here are 4 tips we give all offshore anglers who board The Megabite:
1. Take cover.
One thing that will quickly ruin your offshore fishing trip is getting overheated and sunburned.
Make sure you wear clothing that will protect you from the sun (hats and long sleeves) and bring plenty of SPF. Also, it’s important to take shade breaks so you don’t take in too much heat at one time. Drink plenty of water, too.
2. Stay confident.
Time after time, we’ve found that confident anglers seem to catch the biggest fish.
Whether it’s the law of attraction or just good vibes, keeping a confident and positive mindset is a gamechanger.
Set your mind to believe you’re going to catch that trophy fish and chances are that you will.
3. Learn from the best.
Whether you’re a beginner or have some solid experience, one of our best tips is for you to closely watch the anglers around you.
As an educational charter, we love giving you all the feedback and techniques you need to take your angler game to the next level.
The Captain and the mates have spent years learning the exact type of bait, lures and techniques needed to catch:
Don't forget to ask ALL the questions. We love curious anglers who want to learn from our expertise - it’s why we do what we do!
We promise no matter how experienced you are, you will learn something new every time you come on one of our charters.
4. Avoid being seasick.
One of the worst things you can do on an offshore fishing trip is to get seasick. However, there are a few things you can do to avoid this and ensure a great experience.
Many people take medicine such as Dramamine the day of the trip, but oftentimes this causes drowsiness - not what you need for a full day of fishing.
Captain Joel offers some solid advice: Take one nausea medicine formula the night before, then on the day of the trip take ½ of a non-drowsy nausea medicine formula. This will prevent any seasickness and ensure you a great (sick-free) day of fishing.
Still feeling a little queasy? Keep your eye on the horizon or a fixed point to balance your body and make sure to get up, walk around, and stretch every once in a while.
Follow these tips and you’ll be sure to fully enjoy your next day out in the deep.
Now that you're ready. . .
