Boat fishing tackle essentials


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

As I have the boat and trailer in hand I can focus on the actual fishing.

As I have very little boat tackle I'm largely starting from scratch. I have bought a selection of hooks, 50lb swivels, zip slider booms, wire french booms, T bar, and mackerel feathers from onepoundfishingtackle and bought a bucket of grip leads and plain leads from facebook market place plus I have a reel of 25lb amnesia 

Plus I have all the normal stuff you end up with doing a load of coarse fly fishing.

I'll just be targeting anything i can really, rays, conger, bream, bass etc, not targeting a specific specimen or anything specialised 

 

I think I'll need a few more reels of line for rig making in various strengths but what else do you think I should be buying and where would you recommend I get it from? I live about an hour from the sea, near Yateley so all the tackle shops only really stock carp gear so I'll be buying most, if not all, online.

 

Rod and reel wise, a mates dad was left a pile of sea fishing stuff a few years ago and he has said I can dig through that so I'm just looking at terminal tackle now

To be fair, I think you have it pretty well covered. Perhaps think about a bait knife and chopping board, plus bait elastic, and also a hand towel or rag to clean your hands on after baiting up.

I also have some soft handled long nosed pliers on board to help with hook removal in those cases where a T-bar doesn't work e.g. deep hooked fish.

Also think about a fish measure or tape measure so that you can accurately measure any fish you want to keep - means you can be certain that they're in size before you knock them on the head.

Where are you going to be fishing from? 
 

in Bristol Channel I use 4/0 pennel on a 80lb snood as a running ledger for all my work. Lands everything apart from Tope....

Hook lengths I usually use 40lb amnesia or blackout, pretty similar. 
Nick a good pair of nail clippers from the top left draw of the dressing table for cutting line.

South coast, probably out from Chichester or Poole area

You should have a really sharp knife, ideally one edge serrated and one edge razor sharp ............. this knife should be located near the transom just in case you pick up a pot rope in the prop .............. being anchored from the stern is a very quick way to sink a boat in any type of tide flow, and you certainly  don't want to be hunting around for a knife !

I keep one on the transom and another in my Lifejacket .......................
