Drift Fishing Trip
Fishing is an extremely popular sport, especially on the West Coast. But not all fishermen are looking for the same types of fish- some like to catch and release, while others prefer to keep their prizes. Drift fishing is a type of fishing that's best done in large bodies of water such as the Pacific, Great Lakes, and Mississippi Rivers. It's a great way to catch bass and other fish without wading into the water though it can also be done afloat. Drift fishing can be a great way to spend a nice summer morning.
Drift fishing requires only a few simple things: a pole, line, hook, and bait, usually worms or crickets. You also want some float, so you don't lose your bait. You can use any pole for this- just ensure it's strong and sturdy enough to catch the large fish attracted to your bait. The line should be strong enough not to snap when you catch a big one. Hooks should be very sharp and small so they can penetrate a fish's mouth. You'll also need worms, crickets, or small mollusks such as clams or mussels.
There are several places on the coast where drift fishing is possible. You'll want to find a good spot that has some structure in the water. Structures can be anything from a weed bed to a rock or even artificial structures like docks. The key is that humans must put whatever it is, so it should be relatively stable and safe to stand on as you fish. You'll also want to find a spot with minimal boat traffic that is deep or shallow. Forget about fishing from bridges- they go way too high up and need to be more stable for standing; plus, many have too much boat traffic underneath them.
