Deep Sea Fishing
Fishing for Marlin and Tuna
Deep Sea fishing, often called offshore boat or open water fishing, is fishing in deep water and at some length from land. It is unsafe compared to shallow water or lake fishing. More knowledge is needed about weather patterns, sailing and safety precautions, and this is not an activity for novices.
Deep Sea boats are generally much better than inshore boats, and may need to be tied up in a marina. They are sturdily built so they can brave sun and rain and water conditions met in open waters. Though they differ in blueprint and purpose and prices vary widely they are generally too costly to build and keep up. Most offshore amateur fishermen charter boats rather than own them. It is often a interest of the moneyed, and there is a demand for charter boats equipped and catered to luxuriant excess.
Deep Sea game fish, like marlin and tuna, can be very big and overweight tackle is needed. Fishing is usually done with sea perches.
