What is Fishing?

Now you must be thinking, how to find time with family or friends without distractions and have a great time bonding with each other. It is quite simple, take them fishing! With absolutely no distractions whatsoever, and a whole lot of time to spend together in the open ocean your family will not realize the time spent and eventually, the bonding will happen effortlessly.

Fishing is a great activity that allows you to cut yourself from all the technological strings that tie you down. Phones, the internet, television and the like is all left behind when you venture into the great blue ocean. Here, when you come face to face with nature at its best, you are sure to forget all the worldly tensions and relaunch yourself.

Sport fishing is a form of recreational fishing where the primary reward is the challenge of finding and catching the fish rather than the culinary or financial value of the fish’s flesh. The distinction is not completely rigid – in many cases, sport fishers will also eat their catch. The philosophies and tactics used for sport fishing, however, are usually sufficiently different from “food fishing” to make the distinction clear enough.

Adventure Sports Charters offers you two trips to choose from. If you only want to take a quick ride to check what is biting, a four-hour package might be the right choice.

Deep Sea Fishing involves going out into the sea and fishing in deep waters or at the bottom of the sea. This is only for the experienced anglers who want to take recreational Fishing to the next level. It offers fishermen a great opportunity to catch different fish species which are definitely more massive than those normally caught when fishing in shallow water. It can also be very challenging so adequate planning, enough knowledge on the ins and outs of this offshore activity, and suitable pieces of equipment are of utmost importance.

Deep Sea Fishing
What are the health benefits?

Full Body Strength: The protagonist in Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea battles a great marlin for 3 days. That’s one strong dude. Your average hobbyist won’t be called on to strain day and night to reel in an adversary. But battling even a small fish call engages the shoulders, back, arms, core, and legs in an excruciating workout. Fishing encourages sportsmen and women to train their body so that they have the strength when the time comes for the big catch.

Family Bonding: Fishing is a skill passed on through the generations, with grandfathers taking the younger kids out to a familiar pond and instructing them how to hook a worm. Spending time with your family promotes feelings of security and well-being, making fishing a worthwhile activity to learn.

Boosts Immune System Vitamin D helps your body regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, two minerals that improve immune system function and help defend against disease. The best source of vitamin D is a day outdoors under the sun.

Promotes Relaxation: A beautiful day spent in a mountain stream followed by a dinner of grilled fish. Sound idyllic doesn’t it? Spending long hours in nature with a focused task is akin to meditation, an activity linked to lowered blood pressure and decreased anxiety.

Improves Cardiovascular Health: Fishing burns an average of 200 calories an hour, depending on the kind of fishing you like to do. Maybe it isn’t true if you are sitting around with a cooler of beer and a king-size bag of jerky. But if you are walking around to test out different spots, recasting your line, and (fingers crossed) reeling in a fish, you’ll have put your heart and lungs to work.

Teaches Self-Reliance: In our service-oriented economy, we rely on others to perform all kinds of functions in our daily lives. Fishing puts you out in the wilderness and calls on you to master a variety of different skills. The more involved you get in the sport the more you’ll learn: from driving a boat to hunting down tackle. This impromptu troubleshooting will spill over into your normal life. If you can fix your rod with just your ingenuity, what else can you do on your own?

Bestows Patience: In our world of over-stimulation and instant gratification, fishing puts your patience to practice. Unless you are extraordinarily lucky, you don’t just drop your line in and hook a fish. Some days (and even some trips) you go home empty-handed. But persisting makes you a more patient person, accepting of defeat but unwilling to quit. M.J. Ryan, the author of “The Power of Patience,” explains that learning patience benefits health. Impatience causes stress, weakening your immune system and raising your blood pressure. Patience, meanwhile, makes you calmer and more content.

Encourages Travel: At HFR we promote travel whenever and to wherever you can. Travel expands the mind and makes life more fulfilling. Fishers are among the most accomplished travelers on the planet. Whether head to the Great Lakes for Walleye or Florida for Marlin season, you’ll get to see more of the planet with this hobby.

Enjoy The Great Outdoors: Fishing inspires a closer connection with nature and all the creatures in it. Fisher is tuned in to the harmonious ecosystems in coastal environments. They know all about the different fish that live in the water, the insects they eat, and their predators. The exposure to fresh air, sun, and being on the water has numerous health benefits.

Improves Balance: As anyone who has ever reeled a catfish into a canoe can tell you, fishing requires some acrobatic maneuvers. Balance requires core strength and benefits flexibility, both of which help offset back-pain.

Fishing Methods

Line Fishing

Line fishing

Line fishing is environmentally sustainable and has been practised by worldwide fisher for centuries. Tag along for a chance to see the locals using the traditional ‘pole and line’ fishing method and show off with your catch during the barbecue dinner.
If you’re thinking of taking kids fishing, but aren’t sure where to start, sports fishing might be the best choice with kids. Even toddlers will enjoy a being on the water. Look at the sea for fish, talk about fishing, eat some fish! Just get them out there and exposed and build anticipation.




Is a method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water. This may be behind a moving boat, or by slowly winding the line in when fishing from a static position, or even sweeping the line from side-to-side, e.g. when fishing from a jetty. Trolling is used to catch pelagic fish such as salmon, mackerel and kingfish. Trolling can be phonetically confused with trawling, a different method of fishing where a net (trawl) is drawn through the water instead of lines. Trolling is used both for recreational and commercial fishing whereas trawling is used mainly for commercial fishing. Trolling from a moving boat involves moving quite slowly through the water. This can be accomplished with the use of a special trolling motor. Multiple lines are often used, and outriggers can be used to spread the lines more widely and reduce their chances of tangling. Downriggers can also be used to keep the lures or baits trailing at a desired depth.




An outrigger is a part of a boat’s rigging which is rigid and extends beyond the side or gunwale of a boat. Outrigger poles are typically made from aluminum to withstand the harsh environment of salt water.Outriggers telescope out away from a fishing boat to be able to drop fishing bait lines up to several feet away from the boat into the water. When a fish bites on the bait, the line rigged into the outrigger automatically transfers to a fishing pole that is properly secured into a gunnel on the boat. The pole collapses to allow for bridge clearance, trailering and storage. In an outrigger canoe and in sailboats such as the proa, an outrigger is a thin, long, solid, hull used to stabilise an inherently unstable main hull. The outrigger is positioned rigidly and parallel to the main hull so that the main hull is less likely to capsize. If only one outrigger is used on a vessel, its weight reduces the tendency to capsize in one direction and its buoyancy reduces the tendency in the other direction.
