Knowing The Beach
A smart fisherman will always read and try to know something or almost everything about the beach he/she is going to explore. It is advisable to check out the surf conditions before hand, that too from a higher vantage point. Before you are ready to go out with your fishing rod and bucket and venture in to your favorite beach, first wait and try to figure out how and where the waves are breaking. Keep a keen eye on the dark blue channels and see where the whitewash is forming.
If your beach is offering you rip areas, deep V shaped gutters, shallow sand banks etc. then it is the perfect place for you. Even a beginner should start his/her beach fishing experience from one such beach only. But one should not forget tide and weather conditions to take into consideration as well. If you study about all these parameters and then plan your adventure, it will be certainly turned up to be an extremely pleasurable one.
Gutters are regarded as the highways for the fishes. You get uncountable of fishes there. In beach fishing, gutters play the most important role. Fishes prefer to be there as these places are regarded as the channels of deep waters. Finding or determining a gutter is really very easy, as they can be easily characterized by dark blue or green colors. And more interestingly they run parallel with the beach. These gutters can be of any length and is attached with outlets and fishes come to feed themselves in these outlets only. The best of all gutters are those where you will find a narrow outlet as well as a good casting distance. Bait spinning is the technique you should use when your doing beach fishing near a gutter.
When You Should Fish
There are a number of parameters including weather and surf conditions, time of the day and tidal influences which will be the determining factor about the fishing. Most of the anglers prefer to go out in dawn or in dusk in the beaches to get their fishes. But if the surf conditions and gutter formations are perfect, then you can enjoy beach fishing during the day as well.
Dawn is the time when you can see the fist light touch the surfaces of the sea as well as the earth. Arguably, dawn is about an hour earlier the actual sunrise, so this is the time when the water is really mellow and fishes are also on a rest near the gutter spaces, so you can bait in that time. Although judging the place can be a little difficult as the light will not be that strong.
While fishing in the dusk will be a little easy, as in this case you can read the beach before hand, before it goes too dark. The water and weather conditions are somewhat similar if not totally same as in the case of dawn. But this time is also a fruitful time to enjoy your beach fishing.
