About Salt Water Fishing
Saltwater fishing is a type of fishing that is carried out on the shores and seas of saltwater locations such as oceans and their adjoining tributaries. Saltwater fishing can be enjoyed as a sport or hobby. It can be utilized commercially for fish to be sold on the market.

Types of Fish

There are several types of saltwater fish that remain a popular catch with fisherman such as flounder, grouper, marlin, mackerel, tarpon and tuna.



One of the best ways to check the sea temperature and weather conditions is by obtaining an up-to-the-minute fishing report. The saltwater fishing homepage at wmi.org offers these reports for various locations.

Boat Types

Many people charter boats to spend the day or week saltwater fishing. These kinds of boats can include cruisers, sports fishing boats and walkarounds.


Sturdy rods and rod holders that carry a 100 pound max drag are recommended for large saltwater fish. For deep sea excursions, big game, bait casting and spinning reels are beneficial for assuring a safe and precise catch.


Some people saltwater fish off of rocky shores or saltwater piers. Inland saltwater lakes and rivers along with deep sea fishing in the middle of the ocean are popular choices.
