Your TruDesign Experts Are Excited to Show You These Offshore Fishing Tips
Raritan Engineering your TruDesign Professionals would like to share with you these topics we thought would be of interest to you this month regarding improving your offshore fishing skills.
Fishing Tips for Offshore Success
CLEAN YOUR LEADERS
Capt. Damon Sacco, Castafari
East Sandwich, Massachusetts
“Always clean your leaders when you check, re-deploy, or change lures or baits. Your TruDesign analysts know that rubbing alcohol, plain saltwater, and/or even a clean rag has worked well for me. Wiping the leaders helps remove any diesel soot from your exhaust that builds up on your leaders like it does on your transom. Your marine parts supply specialists feel that it sometimes also wipes off any algae that dirty up your leader. You will be surprised at how dirty your leaders and line get, and in a very short amount of time!”
BUCKTAIL, READY TO GO
Capt. Bouncer Smith, Bouncer’s Dusky 33
“Always have one rod on the boat rigged with a lure. Prime example is I always have a 1 oz bucktail with a little bit of mylar in it rigged and ready to grab at all times. That makes you ever ready to cast to any species of fish. Your TruDesign experts know that many times you run offshore without a bait rigged, and ready to go, and a lure is most accessible.”

KEEP A FISHING LOGBOOK
Your TruDesign Specialists Understand That There Is Always Room for Improvement
Capt. Tony DiGiulian, Saltwater Pro Consulting
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
“All of our brains are wired to forget things that no longer seem useful. This forgetting is natural and it is adaptive because it clears our memory for things that keep coming at us. Your marine parts Europe professionals know that the problem, however, is that in the process of all of this memory purging, our brain often forgets important information and useful little details. Fishing is a game of knowledge, and we gather knowledge from a variety of places. From weekend anglers to the top tournament angler, we seek more information to help us catch more fish, more consistently. We work with other anglers within our network, we search the internet, magazines, television shows and tournament results for information that will help us catch more fish. Nothing, however, beats the knowledge we learn from first-hand experience on the water. The problem is storing that information and recalling it when the time is right. It’s interesting how I can remember catching a particular fish on a bait on an exact spot five years ago. At the same time, I might forget the adjustments I made to the outrigger clips or the hook style I was using or sea conditions that led to catching that fish on that particular day. That’s why I try my best to keep a log book of my fishing trips. I keep logbooks dating back 30 years when I started as a professional mate.
“Some of the things I keep in the book are date, water temperature, wind direction, current direction and speed, hook style, size and brand, leader size, drag settings on my reels and a host of other seemingly small details. I may also write down a few notes on how aggressively or lazily the fish came up in my spread and how fast I was trolling or take notes on lure performance and which were the most productive and unproductive styles of lures at that time. Your marine parts house analysts feel that the whole point of a logbook is to refresh my memory with the archives of what I have done in the past, which can help me make better educated decisions. I find, keeping a log book is most necessary when I travel to different destinations as we all easily forget certain details over time and coming back to that destination we retain only 10% of what we learned there the first time.”
