Deep Sea Fishing as a Sport
Deep Sea Fishing is not an activity for those who are starting out Fishing. Necessary skills and training for Deep Sea Fishing include First Aid, Navigation and Meteorology.
Deep Sea Fishing vessels are larger than boats used for Fishing on lakes or rivers, generally much sturdier in order to endure battering by waves, higher wind velocities and or weather conditions.
Although this is not a sport to be done on your own if you do not have any experience, there are many companies that offer recreational Fishermen the chance to hit the seas for some Deep Sea Fishing. The companies take care of all the technicalities of the trip; you only have to focus on catching some fish.
Popular game fish in Deep Sea Fishing, a particular type of Deep Sea Fishing is Big Game Fishing, include tuna, marlin, swordfish, tarpon, barracuda and even sharks. Fishing is done with sea rods with lines that can take weight up to 50 kilograms.
