Fishing Tips for Lower Back Pain Prevention

Any sport or hobby that involves physical activity can potentially cause injury, and deep sea fishing is no exception.  When trying to reel in large fish, there's always that slight possibility that one unintended movement can cause some back pain.  Fish both large and small can take up to thirty minutes to catch and with all that calculated reeling, deep sea fishing can become an intense endurance workout.  The following strategies can potentially help you to avoid lower back pain.

The first tip is something you've probably heard throughout your life: keep your back straight.  As you reel in, fish will be pulling against you towards the ocean floor and may cause you to be pushed against the railing of the boat.  You may also want to try and get into the habit of using your legs as a means of preventing back pain.  The customary thing to do is to use your back and your arms to pull in whatever fish you're catching, but you can try bending your knees and then straightening them as you're pulling in, shifting the force to another part of the body.

Use the ocean itself to your advantage by keeping an eye on the waves.  As the boat is going up the wave, start winding once it gets to the top and starts making its way back down.  The idea here is you won't need to stress your arms and body as much by pulling up on a fish that's swimming against the ocean swells.

Lastly, go wherever your fish decides to go.  In other words, if it starts to swim towards the sides or decides it wants to swim circles around the boat, follow its movements and try to stay in front of it by moving your feet.  Twisting your body in odd angles will cause unneeded stress on your back.
