Deep sea fishing in the open ocean

Deep sea fishing became a basic occupation in coastal areas. It is done in Gulf of Florida and in the Pacific Gulf, which includes the Gulf of California, the Sea of Cortez, and the Baja and Yucatan Peninsulas of Mexico, north of New Zealand, in Nova Scotia, Hawaii, and Mexico and so on. The possibility of catching big fish along the coasts is higher than in the other regions where the various large species live in deeper waters.


Fishing in coastal areas is possible near the mouth of rivers and streams. In coastal areas, closer to shore, the ocean bottom may have sections of exposed rock. But most of its covered with sand or sediment. Fish live at all depths in coastal water, but most stay close to the bottom. Many feed near cover, such as a rock or a coral reef, where they can ambush prey. Other fish roam, searching for an easy meal.
    Most saltwater anglers fish in coastal waters because there are dozens of different fish species there. Many marine fish migrate up and down the coastline seasonally. Smart anglers monitor water temperatures to determine which species they should fish.

    Deep sea fishing involves several techniques out of which the first to mention is trolling, that is a form of angling performed by drawing a baited line on the bottom of the ocean. The bait usually resembles squid or other smaller fish regularly used for bait and it is used at the rear of the boat. Deep sea fishing boats have an equipment called stabilizers or outriggers that make the fish catching area larger. Another technique is the chumming or chunking which requires that large pieces of bait fish get thrown overboard in order to attract the larger wanted species.
    Southern Gulf species include sailfish, marlin, swordfish, dolphin, mackerel and amberjack. The Pacific Gulf has roosterfish, billfish, marlin and many species of tuna.
