Tips to help you make the most of your fishing boat trips

  • Ensure that you have all the necessary equipment onboard before you leave – once you’re out on the water, you won’t be able to run back to the car to get it. As well as the required safety equipment and your fishing gear, remember to bring food, drinks, towels and sunscreen.

  • Plan your fishing boat launch ahead of time, and complete as many tasks as you can before you arrive at the boat ramp. Boat ramps can be very busy places, and there’s nothing worse than holding up a queue of frustrated boat-owners while you load your boat and fiddle around with your fishing gear.

  • Learn about the type of fish you’re fishing for. This will give you a better understanding of the movements of the fish and how they behave; for example, their migrating patterns, and whether they’re likely to be found in specific areas.

  • Choose your time of day carefully. Learn about the type of waters in which you’ll be fishing to find out what kind of fish are available, and whether they are more likely to be active during the day or at night.

  • For deepwater boat fishing, braided line is better than nylon line. Made from gel-spun polyethylene, braided line is more expensive, but it has a couple of advantages; it doesn’t stretch, allowing for greater sensitivity, and the material is much stronger, so the line is significantly thinner than the equivalent nylon breaking strain.

  • If you’re really serious about catching fish, you might consider investing in a Fish Finder. A Fish Finder is a type of radar that is integrated into the navigation system of the boat. Using active sonar, it detects the location of the fish and the depth of the water. Fish Finders generally use either an LCD or CRT screen; for the recreational fisherman, an LCD screen is likely to be more than sufficient, and will generally use less power and carry a lower price tag.
