Deep sea fishing is a form of angling that requires deep waters and usually takes place further away from land. The water depth should be at least 30 meters to be considered deep sea fishing territory. This fishing method is also often called offshore boat fishing, sport fishing, and big game fishing.
Glad you asked! By going out on a boat into the deeper waters, the fisherman is suddenly exposed to a pool of deep sea fish. These are totally different than your regular shallow water fish. We are talking big game fish - sharks, tuna, marlin, and swordfish just to name a few. You normally will not find these species closer to shore, as they require open and deeper waters to feed. The swimmers and surfers are surely thankful for that.
Check out this video to the see the kind of struggle that often take place during deep sea fishing.
This should be obvious by now, but let us discuss it anyway.

To describe an average deep sea tuna fishing expedition let's take Prince Edward Island in Canada is an example location. As you set out on your boat, you will often find whales, dolphins, and seals on your way to the fishing spot. For bait you will normally use mackerel, which you can catch or purchase before you set out in the deep sea.
PEI features the large bluefin tuna that often puts up a fight of two to four hours. There have even been recorded cases of blufin tuna fighting for as long as 24 hours. Finally, when the fish tires out, it begins making less energetic circles and this is the time to begin reeling it in.
Your trip is usually over at dusk, hopefully with a picture of you standing beside a huge tuna to take home.
A blue shark caught deep sea fishing off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada.One of the first and most important mentions according to the guides for how-to deep sea fishing is conservation. Always keep nature first and fun second. Fishing for sharks can be an exhilarating experience, but they are slow to reproduce and we must take extreme caution to not overfish. Therefore, the catch and release method can be extremely fun and a lot more conservative on the environment.
