Would you rather go saltwater fishing or sit on the sidelines of life until
it’s your time to lock up and die without ever truly living?
We didn't think you were ready to throw in the towel.
If you decide to book a charter, we do however stress the importance of making sure the charter is
licensed and insured by the state you selected for the beginning of your new lifetime adventures.
Most reputable charters provide the rod and reels, tackle and bait used during the trip. The only
thing you will need is your food, sunglasses, sunscreen and beer if it is allowed by the Captain. Do ask what is
provided and if beer is allowed when you book the charter.
Hopefully, you will enjoy yourself so much that you can’t wait for the next saltwater fishing trip.
You might just make some life long fishing buddies by getting off of the couch and experiencing life.
Who knows, you may just decide to buy your own boat for deep sea fishing.
Surf and Pier Fishing Do Not Have to be Expensive
You do need to have a license for surf fishing and some piers allow you to fish without a license.
Verify the saltwater state regulations before
heading out for a day of fun.
Watch out for being allowed to fish from a pier without a license. If you hook a fish on the pier
then proceed to the shore line to land your catch, you could get a ticket for fishing without a license. Read the
We’ve seen beginner anglers use their bass rod rigs to pull in fish from the beach and piers but a
word of advice is to make sure you wash your bass rig with freshwater right away after fishing to remove salt
residue which will kill your bass rig. Man-In-A-Hurry is not recommending using your freshwater equipment. We are
just letting you know what has been observed out on the beach and pier.
There Are Many Types of Saltwater Rods and Reels That Will Get the Job
Some anglers like the spinning reels while other anglers prefer bait casting reels. Many anglers select rods
rated medium action in the 6 to 10 foot range. The longer the rod the further you can cast out into the water.
The shorter the rod the more control you have over the rod. The medium action rod allows more play in the rod
when using live bait. The fish will take off with the bait for a distance which gives you time to set the hook.
Make sure you buy a salt water resistant reel and don’t go for the cheapest model unless you have
plans to upgrade to a better reel in the very near future. Cheap models will wear out faster than you will expect
and the money lost could have gone towards a better and tougher saltwater fishing reel.
