Sea Fishing for Beginners Part 2: How to Detect a Bite

How to detect a bite

There are lots of factors that can effect your bite detection when you are sea fishing.   They can all effect one another to mislead you about what is happening under the water. The 3 ways of detecting a bite are:

  1. Rod Movenment
  2. Line Movement
  3. Indicator Movement ie floats

 

Detecting the bite

The basic key to Detecting the Bite is Practice.

> Watching the rod, line or indicator for any movement, which is not being effected by the sea or wind.

> Looking for any movement or jerking on the rod tip or line, a bobbing on a float or even a rattle.

> Holding the fishing line and rod is best and it will help you focus and allow you to feel the rhythms that are going on under the sea.


Sea Fishing for Beginners Part 1: The Essentials

Starting out in Sea Fishing?

We have put together the Basics you will require to start on your new hobby.  As you progress, you will be able to purchase products which are more specific to your needs.

Right lets start:

Fishing Reel

A mid sized fixed spool reel will be easier to cast than a multiplier. It will cope with the different fishing areas.

– Size 70 Reel

– Ideal for Shore Casting and Beach Fishing

FLADEN CHARTER 421 240YD REEL only £8.99

Great Quality Reel with Front Drag, Balanced Handle, Left or Right Retrieve and comes pre-spooled with Line

FL11-420701 Blue Reel

View all Reels >>>


Fishing Rod

A flexible Rod which does not snap back, with a gradual curve to the tip is a good option. We would suggest that the length of the Rod for beginners should be 10 to 12 ft.   Your casting weight needs to be considered, what distance are you going to fish at? A lighter casting weight is suitable for pier fishing, whilst a heavier weight would be more suitable for longer distances.  A casting weight of 1- 3ozs is considered light, 3 – 6ozs is moderate and 4 – 8ozs being heavy.

Our stock of Fladen Xtra Flexx Rods are due in soon, but we have plenty of other choice to choose from >
