I've caught Black Fin Tuna and Mahi Mahi with a lure and strong tackle right off the S. Florida coast while sailing....just kept the line in the water - trolling - until it hit. Yummy!

Re: Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

Whenever speed & traffic permit, I drag a "deep diver" lure using an inshore rod and 20# line. I'd estimate that I score a Bluefish every couple of days this way. I don't make any effort to find the fish, I just troll whenever and wherever conditions permit. When moored or anchored I have better luck using bait, especially squid, which gets me a Striper now and then.

I'm thinking about getting a down rigger to troll for trout at Lake Jocassee. and custom build davits to hang my kayak of the back.....I to am a fly fishing addict.

Re: Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

I ALWAYS have lines out while sailing...it provides me with fun and dinner...here in the bahamas, rarely do you get "skunked"...and if that does happen trolling....hop in the dink and fish a cut for snapper, or pull out the sling and find a crawfish or two....you cant really go hungry out here if you are trying....a great book to pick up would be "The Cruisers Handbook of Fishing" by Scott and Wendy Bannerot....tons of good info...I use it like a bible...

Re: Who does a lot of fishing from or near their boat?

I usually have a line or two trolling behind while sailing in preferable waters. One line will be on a trolling rod and the other a yo-yo. Caught this one below on the rod about 10 miles before Georgetown in the Exumas. We also spearfish with a gun or a sling where we can. I also will take the dinghy out fishing to reefs in range or on flats.

The best fishing though is done from a fishing boat so it is nice to have friends that can take you out to where the fish are running or to bottom fish the reefs.

Yep always get a rod out. One time I caught a 16" rock on heavy tackle doing about 6 knots. I noticed him dragging on top of the water after a seagull tried to pick him up.

I've had charter boat captains huck baitfish at me for getting in their way until they see my lines trailing aft and realize I'm doing what they are.

Caught tons of fish in the Bahamas last year, but anything over a couple of feet long is a real pain to get aboard without risking life limb and worse, the loss of the fish........So I bought a Sportfisher. Now I have to figure out how to sail two boats at once.
