    How to Pick the Right Fishing Boat | Saltwater Fishing

    August 18, 2019


    “Hi, my name is Captain Layne Wagner of Hawk
    One Charters. I’ve been a captain for over 40 years. I’ve fished all over the world and now I’m
    up here in Long Island, New York. You can find me online at Hawk One Charters,
    www.hawkonecharters.com. I’ll be talking to you today about saltwater
    fishing. The saltwater fishing there are three basic
    boats that I’m gonna discuss right now. One is an inshore, bay flats boat, one is
    an offshore, near shore fishing boat and one is a deep sea fishing boat. Now these boats can be interchangeable, but
    they each have their specific use. The inshore bay flats boat goes in shore,
    shallow water fishing, back bays. Then there’s the near off shore which goes
    in deeper water, it’s a little larger, a little stouter a little sturdier, able to take rougher
    water. Then you have your deep sea boat, thirty or
    more feet, tuna, sail fish, sword fish, deep sea fish. So that’s the basic three types of boats there
    are. ”

    3kg Bonito fishing from the rocks!

    So we just arrived on the spot, it’s very cold and there’s a terrible wind. We’ll see if we catch something My hands… Yes ! I don’t know if it’s a bonito. Ah yes, yes yes ! Argh I lost it… yep. My leader got cut, I can’t believe it How is this possible again ? Maybe my clips are the problem I don’t know I think so, but I’m not saying anything no more. It’s trempling a lot. I think it’s a bonito man It’s not an atlantic bonito.. It was really trembling It’s a little tunny ? It’s a nice fish ! Well, a little tunny and we’re back at it. I think my clip was the problem before, might have broken or something. Maybe it’s too big, and witht the friction it breaks the leader. I just changed to a small jig we’ll see. Wait, I’ve got something ! What is this ? maybe a squid… It’s really small. No no I hooked something. Yeah horse mackerel. I can cast it like this ! Must be another one. Hey not bad. Nice little fish. Noo I’ll release him. So, end of this morning session. I got broken again, on a bonito I think. Seeing the rush that he did. It’s the third time it happens, It’s true we have a tiny leader (25/100) But I think it’s breaking at the clip jonction. I just won’t use them anymore. I won’t take the risk anymore. So I lost a lure, put another one on and caught a little false albacore. It must be aroung 1 kg And after that 2 little horse mackerels. We’ll stop for today and we’ll come back before the weather is too cold. See you soon !! It’s 7 am, we just arrived. Sun is rising slowly. It’s about 3 or 4°c no more. We’re waiting for the sun and for the first hits to come. See you later. We had the wind from the side now it’s coming from our back so it’s better to cast. Oh tha’ts it !! I don’t know what it is, just jumped on the surface ! Maybe it’s a bluefish ? It’s very weird, it gives big head shakes. You’ve got one as well ? I’m sorry but he’s going sideways. Man he’s going towards you. He’s right here but I’m afraid to put too much pressure on the line. Coz we have a tiny leader. Man he’s running.. Look at that ! He’ss gonna empty my spool. I’m getting smoked. Look at that ! It’s no bluefish !! Yes, bonito ! At first I thought about a bluefish coz he jumped ! No he took it rpetty far but jumped right ahead. Finally ! Nice bonito. Amazing fish Look at this mouth full of teeth.

    The wind is so strong it’s blowing spray right
    off the top of the waves. StrongWind and Wave sounds. Be a rough day in the boat. Fishermen
    going out onto the main lake. Gunning the engine. Hitting the waves hard. Decided to
    give up. I think the are going to try it again. That;s probably enough. Can’t hardly see the
    boat when it’s down in the wave.
