Saltwater Fishing

Tested saltwater fishing gear and proven saltwater tactics to help you be more successful on the water.



The salt eats away your gear, the tides battle against you, and the fishing is as unpredictable as the weather, but saltwater fishing has a special pull on anglers on every coast around the world. Some anglers like to steer their boat along a depth line, watching their rod tips sticking out the side of their boats connected to stringers, waiting to nail a giant on the troll. Others like to wade the skinny water, straining their eyes and stretching their casts across a flat to cruising striper, bonefish, permit, tarpon, redfish, giant trevally, and more, hoping for an epic eat.
