Inlet Fishing Tips

People love to go fishing. Whether it is for sport or just enjoyment, there is nothing quite like sitting by the lake or ocean with a line out, seeing if you can catch a big fish. Fishing is like gambling but instead of money, you gamble a wasted day and a few hours next to a pond, ocean or inlet. Everyone is looking for the next good tip. How to catch that massive fish and put yourself in the memory books forever! So, if you are spending your next fishing day at an inlet, here are some ideas for how to catch the next monster.

 

Time

Timing is everything when it comes to catching a big fish. The tides move the fish around quite a bit. When an inlet dumps in and out of the ocean, it usually is through a small area. Bigger fish have figured out that when the tide is going in and that area narrows, the smaller, delicious fish are forced to go through there to get back to the ocean - so they go there to feed. When you are looking for a big fish, look for them at an inlet mouth during the morning tide. Along with that, back washes typically have tons of large fish as well. The fish get somewhat trapped there when the tide goes out. If their water path dries up, then they are stuck until the next tide. Make sure you are fishing early.

 

Bait

As with fishing anywhere, especially an inlet, it is important to use good bait. Bait is important because when you are fishing in the ocean, there are a lot more other real fish to eat. In order to fit in to the crowd of fish enough to be appealing, you have to use good bait. Good bait is also important because you want to attract a good amount and range of fish. Unless you are focusing on one single type of fish, you always want to get a plethora of different breeds. The meat is different and it makes for a more interesting day!

 

Rocks

Another great tip is to fish near rocks. Fish near where the rocks are pushing out into the ocean. This is because this is where fish like to hide out. Although it gives them more hiding places, it also opens the door for many different fish to be swimming by to check out your bait. Also, in these rocks are plant life and smaller fish that bigger fish like to feed on. Rocks are a great place to find large fish!

 

Inlets are great places to fish because they open a door of opportunity for many different types of fish that are hungry and available. These areas are typically easier to access and are pleasant to spend the day at. The next time you're needing a little vacation from life, check out your nearest inlet and try these tips for getting the next monster fish!
