Big-game fishing is a form of recreational fishing which entails targeting larger marine fish such as tuna, marlin and swordfish for recreational purposes. While catching big game fish requires luck as much as skill or preparation can do the job!
Choose the appropriate lures for your big-game fishing adventure is essential. Your lure selection should reflect both the species you are targeting and your chosen fishing method (casting, pirking or trolling behind the boat). Plus, size of lure must match species targeted. Season and temperature also play a part in selecting lures; some species of fish only respond well to certain lures when water temperatures meet optimal ranges.
Your choice of lure will also depend on the type of bait, whether live or dead, that you are fishing with and the specific conditions at the time of your fishing trip. High quality hooks, swivels and rings should be attached as these will endure much strain during a battle between fish and your hook; using high quality lures will increase the odds that it pierces a fish successfully since these have been designed to be more robust.
Additionally to the technical gear necessary for big-game fishing, you will require additional items that will ensure an enjoyable and safe fishing experience. A life jacket and sturdy men’s or women’s fishing boots that provide ample support are both important requirements. A cooler or insulated tote for holding your catch, nonperishable snacks, and water are essential additions.
If you want to set a record at big-game fishing, it is highly advised that you hire the services of an experienced guide. They will be able to supply the appropriate equipment while possessing extensive knowledge about where you’re fishing in order to help guide you towards landing big fish. Plus they may offer tips and tricks that may increase your odds.

A knowledgeable guide will be able to offer guidance as you develop effective fighting techniques; learning to read body language of fishes may also prove useful when trying to land big ones!
