The types of fishing tackle and gear that is used for saltwater fishing is different for each species and particular fishing technique. Valid seawater fishing license is must. It’s very important to plan your trips based on tidal movement. Select the correct spinning rod and reel combo. Use of natural baits, like shrimp or bait fish, offers the best opportunity for a good catch. Happy fishing.
I would recommend to use medium power rod with a large saltwater spinning reel and a 20 to 25-pound test line for the best results. I usually prefer squid or Prawn as bait. Consider fishing from a public pier to start. Public piers are great places to gain experience with inshore saltwater fishing gear, rigging baits, and landing fish. Then try your hand at sea, it would give you more confindence.
Saltwater fishing is comparitively harder to practice than freshwater fishing. In saltwater fishing, getting a bite might be easier than landing a successful catch. While lures work great, live bait, shrimp, or squid is always a good choice for saltwater fishing. Shrimp, shellfish, cut bait, and Bait fish are usually preferred. Saltwater fishing rods are made of corrosion-resistant materials for obvious reason. Many saltwater fish actually feed at night especially the snappers which are quite active at night. Saltwater fishing can be undertaken at night too if one prefers.
