Different fish targets often require different baits and lures. For example, sheepshead and bonefish prefer crustaceans such as crabs and shrimp. But plenty of different species will also eat the same natural baits and lures. Shrimp, crabs and baitfish are common grub for the majority of inshore gamefish. If you’re headed offshore, bait-sized mackerels, mullet, blue runners, tunas and ballyhoo attract the attention of most bluewater species. Find out which baits and lures work best for your favorite game fish.
Having the proper rod and reel is like having the right tools to fix your car. To maximize your fish catching, you’ll likely need a number of different fishing outfits to get the job done. If you only fish for inshore species, your rod rack might be on the lighter side. But if you fish for inshore, nearshore and offshore species, then you probably need an arsenal of fishing gear, including baitcasting, spinning, casting and conventional gear. Check out the latest rods and reels available to add to your collection.
Pick the best main line and leader for your day of fishing. Braided lines have a stranglehold on the fishing world, growing in popularity year after year. Still, monofilament and fluorocarbon lines have their place too. Fluorocarbon leaders are popular for inshore anglers, while monofilament remains a strong option for offshore leaders. Check out the latest lines and leaders, plus tactics and fishing knots to better use them.
Terminal tackle is what you tie to the end of your line, hence the name. Hooks, weights, jigs, split rings, floats and swivels are common pieces of terminal tackle. Terminal tackle is relatively inexpensive, so anglers tend to load up on the gear and store it in organized tackle trays. Just think of how many circle hooks are on the market! Check out the latest terminal tackle today.
There is more to fishing gear than fishing tackle. All the fishing gear that doesn’t fall into the main categories of rods, reels, line, leaders, lures or terminal tackle gets clumped into the fishing accessories category. Gear such as nets, gaffs, coolers, pliers, castnets, nets, and knives are common fishing accessories. Check out the latest fishing accessories on the market.
