Miami Beach deep sea fishing is one of the greatest activities around. Of course, if you rent a fishing charter, like the kinds of trips The Therapy-IV offers, then the Captain will have everything you need. However, if you choose to go by yourself, below is a list of the essential gear every fisherman should carry with them.
Rod, Extra Fishing Line, hooks of varying sizes, and sinkers: In regards to the type of rod, either a light or a heavy tackle is ideal; it all depends on what types of fish you are planning on catching.
Live and Artificial Bait: Small fish, worms, dead bait (like squid, sardine, and mackerel) are all acceptable forms of live bait. You can either buy the bait or catch it on the way to the fishing site.
Needle Nose Pliers: Ensure you do not forget this heavily needed tool, as it is used to remove the hook from the fish you will catch.
Line Cutter: Lines get tangled and/or snagged, hence the need for a line cutter, a quick and easy to use fix.
Rope Tape Measure: Good for measuring the fish you caught for future references.
First Aid Box: Fishing can be dangerous, so always ensure you have a mini first aid box with you.
Rag or Gloves: Slippery fish can be a pain; these items will ensure that you do not lose your catch.
Camera: With the rough waters, you do not want to risk losing your expensive smart phone, so bringing a camera is a good idea.
Cooler: If you are bringing your fish home with you, a separate cooler is a smart choice.
