When it comes to fishing, sometimes it can be a good idea to change things up a bit. A popular option is up-tide fishing, with it being both an enjoyable and productive way of catching a number of different fish species. This method of fishing means you need to cast a 6 ounce weight with a trace, baited with a number of different baits up-tide of the boat you’re on.
The tackles you’d normally use is a 9 foot up-tiding rod with either a small 6500 or 7000 size multiplier filled with line. It’s essential it has anywhere between 15 and 30 breaking strain. Up-tide fishing is normally done when in shallow but inshore waters, with the water being no deeper than 90 ft and also less than mile from shore.
