Fishing unlike what so many people have come to believe is an exciting sport. It’s a hobby that allows a person to enjoy a weekend with his family or with his buddy. Though fly-fishing is sometimes perceived to be extremely boring because of how fly fishers look in most of the pictures during actual fishing; this hobby/sport actually needs a lot of knowledge and perseverance before someone is able to fish for species from both salt and freshwater.
Similar to freshwater fishing, there are also important guidelines you need to follow to be able to fish properly in salty waters. When using sand shrimps as bait, for example, you need to learn how to keep it hooked while you are fishing. Using a pin would be helpful for this. Be sure though to keep the tail and the pincers of the shrimp free to move when underwater. Aside from the scent of the sand shrimp which attracts bottom feeders quite easily, leaving the lower part of the shrimp free to move about attracts species as well.
As for fresh shrimps, make sure that you keep them alive in a cool container. It is very important to keep them alive because live shrimps catch more fish. Also, while they are in a container, remember not to keep them congested. Also, avoid using ice blocks to keep the shrimp cold in the container. Use frozen plastic containers instead so even when the ice melts inside the plastic, it does not affect the rest of the shrimp inside the container.
When fishing in deep, salty waters, you may sometimes spend too little time waiting on a spot you think does not give you much (or any) capture. Keep in mind to always have the patience to try an area of the water long enough before you move on to the next.
You can also try switching or changing the bait you are using. With fly-fishing, timing and combination are everything. Try each of the tools you have and when you do, feel the moment. Do not rush up on things.
