Often there is a misconception that you have to go deep-sea fishing to catch trophy saltwater fish and thatís just not true. As long as you have the right gear and know a few saltwater fishing tips the back water is tons of fun, especially for the kids and families.
We will usually use 2 different tactics for back water fishing:
Anchoring: Anchor up and cast soft plastic lures, metal spoons or live baits up current, allowing them to drift down and sweep past the fish.
Drifting: We will drift the boat through the deeper water or over and along the shoals while bouncing jigs or bottom rigs.
We will catch redfish, snook, tarpon, and so much more. This is fun for everyone, as we can see dolphins, manatees and hundreds of bird species to make your back water fishing experience a great one.
