Underwater Fishing of Large Predators

Fishing Technique Waiting, Underwater Fishing In The Depths Of The Sea

Today we focus on a technique of underwater fishing called fishing lurking or waiting, this technique requires a great physical condition for the fisherman. It is generally focused on fishing for larger predators or pelagic fish.

There are many factors that will depend on the success of stalking, depending on the psycho-physical condition of the diver, depth of fishing, average length of dives, usually last between 1 to 2 minutes. The in-depth fishing technique is performed with deep dives of about 10 m to 20 m, which generally  makes the apnea more durable.

A tip for these dives safely is to make the surface time is at least 3 times longer than the dive time itself, that is, if our immersion in hard apnea one minute must remain on the surface for 3 minutes Minimum.

The best time for stalking is generally in  the early hours of the morning, but the results are satisfactory throughout the day.

The sea currents caused by the tide greatly influence the eating habits of the fish. During underwater fishing, it is best to use these marine currents that provide nutrients and organisms, these currents increase the activities of the food chain, so we will encounter larger predatory fish, experienced fishers know these currents and use them for Know where the fish will move.

The choice of  terrain  for deep-sea fishing technique is fundamental. The most suitable are steep, narrow coasts or canals and banks and shallow reefs. In these areas, the marine life becomes very intense, this terrain offers fishermen great places for fishing lurking according to ALLTIMEFISHING.

The key to  success for all undersea fishermen, therefore, lies in the familiarity and knowledge of these places and the understanding of the basic factors that influence marine life (winds and currents).

All these factors determine the behavior of predatory fish. The experienced fisherman should not have problems with the correct choice of location when using deep underwater fishing technique, so it is important to know the fishing zone or at least be accompanied by some fisherman knowledgeable about the area.

When fishing for lurking, we can count on the curiosity of the predatory fish.Pelagic species are usually less timid.

Steps To Follow When Fishing:

The first part is immersion, this diving technique is no different fromthe usual dive in apnea.

In the second part, the fisher must not makeany quick or unnecessary movement, while drifting in the depths of the sea.

The last part of the dive should be carried out practically without excess of movement due to thenegative buoyancy ofthe fisherman.

The fishnet must choose the most appropriate position once it reaches the bottom of the sea and choose an area where it hasshelter or is sheltered by rocks and other natural protrusions.

When the desired depth is reached, it should bekept immobile. The technique of fishing waiting in the depths of the sea usually attracts the curiosity of the predatory fish.

Regarding the position of pescasub on the seafloor should be chosen the most camouflaged places possible , such as caves, hollows, songs…
Therefore, the exploitation of the direction of sunlight when positioning on the seabed is fundamental For the lurking fish, the fisher must choose the areas more shaded to go more unnoticed since it is well known that the predatory fish has a great capacity of vision and therefore they are more sensitive to the light of the sun.

As a general rule and according to experiences of underwater fishers, it has been proven that the average waiting time to notice the fish is 30 seconds. If the fish do not appear within this time, it is not wise to keep waiting and we must rise to the surface.

When it comes to the purchase of underwater fishing equipment, saving is not a good choice.Secondhand clothes are often damaged or worn out and this will increase the loss of body heat and in this way increase the use of oxygen in each dive.

It is necessary to add to this point the importance of the choice of the  fins, since their quality, hardness and material will strongly influence the displacement. This has a very important role when it comes to climbing back to the surface.

When choosing our weapon, a rifle of 110 cm in length or even more is usually a good option, in the technique of fishing lurking or waiting the rifles can be heavier than usual, thus allowing the use of a Thicker harpoon, which in turn increases penetration.

Latest Recommendations For Underwater Fishing Safely:

The technique of underwater fishing awaits in depth must always be carried out in the vicinity of a boat, for our safety it is advisable that someone supervises us in our dives. If there are no strong currents, there is no need to anchor the boat, the proximity of the boat will not disturb the fish of the seabed under any circumstances.

The choice of the depth to which we want to fish must be adjusted to the real psychological abilities and physical fitness level of each fisher, not to go beyond what we are prepared to endure.

We hope that it has served as a guide to begin to carry out this technique of submarine fishing , and remember always safety first and foremost.

Next we leave you a video of the Youtube channel of Espesca.es  where Francis, one of the members of the Espesca.es team makes his own, do not miss it!
