I search the forums, and was surprised that I did not find much sail-fishing info.

Does anyone have a tips or suggestions to better join sailing and fishing. My youngest kid loves fishing, and because of our better success on the hook, we find ourselves spending now actually sailing.


Thanks.

Try this:

Sail Delmarva: Yo-Yo Fishing

We have many rods, but we catch more with this minimalist gear, because we use it more. As for lure types and locations, local knowledge rules.
