Great Places and Tricks for Fishing from the Shore

Great article on Fishing from the Shoreline

Recently we at Shotem and Caughtem had a friend that moved from the midwest where fishing from the shore around farm ponds and watersheds can yield some big fish to the Gulf of Mexico and no boat.  We decided that we needed to do some research on ways to still catch big fish without the capabilities of always being able to have a boat to cruse the waters for the big ones.  Lucky for us we found a great article from our friends Outdoor Life that talks about the top three spots to fish from the shoreline and the best methods those top anglers use.  

Beware of Sharks

One thing this article did not point out was the trouble with sharks.  As is the case with many of the best fishing spots in the ocean, where there are big fish, there are predators.  One thing the news has pointed out recently is that when we travel to other continents or out into the ocean we as humans are not the top predator.  Recent news from Australia or those of us that are addicted to Shark Week already knew that sharks prey the same waters hunting those very fish we are after.  So please be aware of your surroundings when using these tips and tricks when fishing from the shoreline.  You never know what might be hunting beside you!

We hope you share your shoreline adventures with us in the galleries or in the comment section below.  Either way we hope you have a Shotem and Caughtem weekend.
