So your a fisherman and you know what brought that giant smile to your face once ago and so you want to take your children, family or Friends fishing and pass along a feeling of contentment, joy and the pure clean adrenaline rush of getting in that fish. Oh how I remember and still experience that feeling every time I catch a fish or have caught one. Its incredible and empowering. I have successfully caught and can feed myself or my family from the ocean and that I skillfully managed that fish onto my hook and into my cooler as Bruce Willis say’s Yippee kiyaa.
I get these questions a lot and thought this would be the best way to answer this now and in the future with this article.
I Just need to catch something and would prefer it to be edible
where and how do I catch some fish for my Family and or them catch fish??????
Well Freshwater is not the best around me, Its contaminated so I suggest Saltwater, but even then there is still environmental issues you should make yourself aware of, most coastline seafood has levels of not so good chemicals so check with Florida State for your area.
Beach is my choice, you will have an array of fish to go for using a simple rig and Combo, most will be pan fish ranging from 1/4 of a pound to 3 pounds and bigger sometimes.
What might you catch, Edibles Croakers, Whiting, Grunts, Jack crevale, Blue runner, Snapper, Hog Fish. Seasonal Edibles, Pompano, Bluefish, Flounder, Red Fish. Not so Edible Lizardfish, Ladyfish.Bonefish. Assorted Sting rays, I am sure a few others.
Medium Rod and Reel or a 9 foot to 12 foot Surf Rod and reel, fully lined with 15lb or 20lb test minimum, you need pompano rigs with Circle or Khale 4, 2, 1/0, I like to have all three, you can also make your own Chicken rig, drop loop rig or pompano rig what ever you want to call it, use pyramid weight you will hold bottom better, you will also need sand spikes for your rods.
