Saltwater fishing or freshwater fishing? If you don't know your stuff then it can be hard to decide between the two. That is why we have put together an article highlighting the basic similarities and differences between them, so that those who are new to the sport can make an informed decision. At first glance, it may look as though they are the same thing and there are indeed many similarities. With both saltwater and freshwater fishing, you use bait and can catch both small and large fish. You can fish from a boat, as well as using a rod and reel along the shoreline.

However, there are some differences as well, one being the technique used for each type. When fishing in saltwater, the aim of the angler is to bring the fish to him. He does this by dragging bait from the back of the boat, hoping that the fish will see it and bite. In most cases, saltwater fishing takes a longer time, meaning that the angler will have less time to take part in other activities such as playing partypoker or board games. With freshwater fishing, the angler will use a trolling motor and patrol the perimeter of the lake. He will cast in the area where he thinks, or knows, that the fish are in an attempt to catch them.

Another area where the two types of fishing differ is in the size of gear that is used in the process. When angling in saltwater, the reel tends to be much larger than the reel used by those fishing in freshwater. This gives the saltwater angler the capability of catching the types of really big fish that you may find in the open sea, as well as the ability to fish in much deeper water than is found in freshwater lakes. There are a few other differences, and if you are still not sure then it is advisable to try out both, and simply see which you prefer.
