Saltwater Fishing Articles
Freshwater and Saltwater Bottom Fishing
: Mar. 3, 2015 Bottom Fishing -
One of the easiest types of fishing is bottom fishing, and it’s also very productive. Many fish species prowl along the bottom of a river, lake, pond, or the ocean in search of food. This method of angling doesn’t require a lot of work or strategic moves. It uses a fish’s natural instincts and behavior to entice it to take a bait.
Florida Flats Fishing
: Mar. 3, 2015
Florida Flats Fishing – How ToTo best fish the flats, you’ll need a skiff – a boat with a flat bottom and a shallow draft. The flats can be very deceiving. The water is so clear that it’s all but impossible to correctly judge the depth, so if you’re not familiar with the flats, you might think you’re in just a foot or two of water, when in fact you might be in six or eight feet of water.
Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters
: Mar. 1, 2015
The Chesapeake Bay provides rich and varied fishing grounds, and this is a huge body of water. In fact, before white Europeans began exploring and settling the area, many of the Native Americans living near the Chesapeake found it difficult to believe that an even larger body of water lay just to the east of the Bay. Within this expanse of water are several different types of fish habitats, along with a wide range of fish species that anglers find attractive.
Chesapeake Bay Striper Fishing
: Jan. 3, 2015
Deltaville, Virginia is a quaint community that’s located on the eastern point of the state’s Middle Peninsula. Once the center of the wooden ship-building industry on the Chesapeake Bay, the town is now a tourist center dotted with yacht clubs, marinas, and sailing charters.
Virginia Beach Tuna Fishing? Go fly a kite!
: Jan. 1, 2015 Whether it is tuna fishing in Virginia Beach or some other region I know many of you diehard offshore tuna fishermen have spent hours if not days pouring over sea temperature charts and fishing reports trying to sort out where that elusive tuna bite is going to happen during the early and middle summer season.
Tuna Fishing Time In Massachusetts Fishing Grounds
: Sep. 10, 2014 The sheer amount of tuna in Massachusetts Bay over the past few seasons has been staggering. Large schools of small football size tuna, along with some true giants, have been frequent visitors to the waters off Cape Cod, presenting an incredible opportunity for anyone willing to put in the time and effort.
Springtime Speckled Trout Fever
: Feb. 16, 2014 Springtime speckled trout fishing fever is an addiction only the hardcore speck angler can relate to. It's the time of year that offers speckled trout anglers the opportunity to land a real wall-hanger.
Naples Deep Sea Fishing Charters
: Feb. 14, 2014
Naples is located in Southwest Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico. Many people visit for the beautiful beaches, the shopping, and the culture, but for visiting anglers, it’s all about the fishing! The waters around Naples are blessed with warm year-round temperatures and abundant food sources for fish, so a wide range of fish species thrive here.
Fishing For High-Powered Cobia
: Feb. 10, 2014 Fishing in Florida - Though they are second only to tarpon in size, pound for pound cobia yield nothing where power is concerned.
Snook Fishing from Shore
: Jan. 2, 2014 A lot of people think that you have to have a boat to fish, especially to fish for Snook. This is just not true. I have spent the last 5 to 6 years fishing for Snook on shore. I have also fished for them in a boat, but I have found out that I am more successful when fishing for Snook from shore.

Buoy Data Observations
Been tying that same old fisherman's knot over and over for every species? The fisherman's knot, also known as a clinch knot is a good knot but not for every situation. Different species and different situations call for different
fishing knots. Tuna fisherman need have little interest in knots used by trout fisherman, who, in turn, uses knots that are not necessarily suitable for bream fisherman. All sportsmen should have at least 3 or 4 fishing knots in their arsenal that they can quickly tie.
Likewise you should feel confident in your knot and know that it won't come loose when you hook a big daddy? See our knot library for detailed instructions on tying fishing knots. Why take chances losing lunkers because you had a granny knot? Whether it's a snell knot, bimini twist, palomar knot, or offshore swivel knot,
