The Basics of Bottom Fishing

Perhaps the most common of fishing techniques, bottom fishing is a means of catching fish dwelling near the sea floor, just as its name suggests. Despite coming across as a lazy method of fishing, bottom fishing requires significant technique when it comes to drifting and anchoring. As fish such as the grouper and red snapper typically hang out near wrecks and reefs, bottom fishing is considered one of the most effective means of catching them.

Bottom fishing can be done from land or by boat using rods or handlines. The technique involves dropping the bait towards the sea bottom to attract the attention of fish and get them to grab onto the lure. Once the fish grabs the bait, it will feel the weight resistance and will bolt away, causing them to hook onto the bait hook. This weight is also helpful in making sure the bait stays put even if currents are strong.
