Deep Sea 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.

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.

Common Injuries

Deep Sea Fishing can be a very dangerous occupation, with those who make a living from the activity facing the possibility of injury or death each day.

Fisherman can fall overboard and drown. Many are lost at sea as a result of this accident. There is always the possibility of drowning whilst at sea, so ensure you wear a Life Jacket.

As well as this, a sudden change in the weather or an onset of bad weather can exponentially increase the danger of the trip.

Pay particular attention to any children you may be Fishing with and make sure they are not near the water unattended.

If Fishing hooks do become embedded in flesh then seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Before embarking on a Deep Sea Fishing holiday it is a good idea for each member of your group to receive CPR training from an organisation such as the St John's Ambulance.
