Going Into Surf Fishing Photography

The surf is always a very beautiful place given the landscape, sun and serene environment that comes with it. It is for this reason that many people have been inspired to go into beach photography, especially pictures of fishing the surf. The fact that the latter is not a reserve of just a few people is also another reason why many people are going into this kind of photography. These days, there are old-fashioned photographers, wedding photographers and nature photographers who take pictures as well. Although it might seem so, taking pictures is not as easy as it seems because it comes with a number of challenges as well. Catching the right surf fisher at the right time with the right conditions is difficult. This is especially if the person who is going about it does not have the necessary experience. There are however a number of tips that can be quite helpful to a person who is interested in taking beach pictures and below are a number of them.

The first tip that can be really helpful to a person who wants to go into beach photography is choosing the rite time of the day and getting a person fishing the surf to cooperate. The best time to take pictures of the beach landscape is early mornings and late afternoons. This is because the sun is usually up, warm and shining from a low enough angle to illuminate the subjects in an even way. Taking photos during the day is ill advised because the glare coming from the sand and water often creates high –contrast and stark photos that do nothing for the location at all. Another helpful tip is to go all the way to the edge of the water. Here it will be possible to get the best pictures devoid of any tire tracks, footprints or any other distraction that could make a photo look less natural.

The good sky factor that is always associated with the beach and surf fishing is should also be exploited when one is going into beach photography. While using this sky it is also advisable for one to be very careful because while it can be very beautiful, it can work against the photographer as well. A big formation of clouds can add another dimension on the photo and this is especially if the foreground is not interesting. Getting an eye-catching feature will also go a long way into ensuring that the person gets the best pictures. An empty, long expanse entailing white sand and blue, clear sky could be ideal for walking on a beach but it will not do much for a photograph. In many cases, hiring a guide or will pay dividends.

It is advisable to get a feature around which the whole composition is going to surround and this would probably be your surf fisherman. Most of the beaches have quite rocky headlands on every end which could be very interesting for the foregrounds. Using wide –angle lens cameras is also the best way to capture the distance and isolation that most people feel when they are on the beach. Smaller lens on the other hand exaggerate the beach perspective in effect making the background seem to stretch for many miles away thereby creating a sense of 3-dimensional depth. Beach photography still remains unchartered territory just waiting to be exploited.

Hire Dog Walking Service

Wondering what to do with your pet or pets while you are out fishing the surf? Many beaches do not allow pets on them. Those beaches that do allow pets on them have fairly strict leash laws. If you are going to fish, you don t need the interruptions of a rambunctious pet straining at the leash. Hire a dog walking service.

Dogs need a lot of exercise. After all, they have evolved to be friendly, sociable pack animals. They want to run around, chase each other, wrestle on the ground, and generally frolic. Unfortunately, too many people leave their dogs at home all day with no form of activity. These dogs can get restless, depressed, and uncomfortable which leads to bad behavior and an unhappy pet. Fortunately, even if you aren t around the house that often, there s a way to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise: a dog walking service instead of a Mount Pleasant dog day care service .

Dog walking services are most common in places like New York City – areas where professionals lead extremely busy lives and might not have the time to give their dogs exercise daily. For an affordable price, a dog walking service will make sure your best friend can exercise everyday. Some dog walking services keep prices down by walking several dogs at once. Provided that your dog is reasonably well behaved and friendly, he will get the opportunity for an exercise walk and the chance to meet some other dogs and maybe make a few friends. Other services offer solo walks for your dog for a bit more money, or group rates for all the dogs in your house. If you have a large or rambunctious dog, this might be the best option for getting it daily walks.

If you have an elderly Or infirm dog, a dog walking service might not be your best option. Many people with dogs which have special needs prefer to hire an all-day pet sitter. Pet sitters will keep your dog company and play with it, but will also take care of its bathroom, feeding and other needs.

If you have a puppy and don t have time for it, neither a dog walking service nor a pet sitter will provide you the services you need; you need an obedience school. Puppies require almost constant attention until they have been trained. If you work long hours, training can be stressful and frustrating to both you and your dog, since you won t have the time to teach him properly. Taking him to a dog training school will make things easier on both of you. He will learn basic commands as well as how to scratch at the door when he needs to go out quickly, so that you can enjoy playing with him in your free time instead of punishing him for having “accidents” or trying to get him to follow your hand signals.

Want East Coast Surf Fishing or Exotic Hiwaii Fishing?

The 50th state is, by many accounts, the most beautiful.  While I won’t pass judgement on that it s a personal thing, after all I will say that Hawaii fishing offers a diversity of targets and styles that s unmatched anywhere else in the US other than East Coast surf fishing.  Its location is obviously unique, the islands sitting, as they do, at the convergence of the trade winds as well as several different currents.  This causes there to be bountiful fishing for everyone from the absolute novice to the prize-catching trophy fisherman. If you can handle the cost of getting there, you may want to substitute this instead of fishing the surf in North Carolina.

If you re not an extreme fisherman, your best bet is to jump on a group charter and go out on the waves to fish for whatever the crew suggest.  The waters around Hawaii are rich with coral reefs, which attract everything from the Reef Triggerfish the state fish to the bull shark. Small fish like the clownfish are also easily found, as are Chilean seabass, and dozens of other beautiful, small and tasty fish. You will certainly find different varieties here as opposed to surf fishing in NC.

If you re the more adventuresome type, then I d suggest targeting some of the sportfish around Hawaii.  Hawaii fishing is, in some ways, the home of sportfishing in the pacific, which specific charters designed to go after any of the numerous big fish in the blue waters off coast.

The sailfish is probably the most spectacular, with its giant and distinctive top fin.  The swordfish is its distant cousin, and has the distinct jaw that makes it one of the great prizes of Hawaii fishing, as well as a unique and top-notch predator.  If you re going after either of these two, make sure you have an experienced guide/fisherman with you, as they re not for beginners.  Either could very easily hurt you if you re unprepared for their strength and ferocity unlike the varieties in NC surf fishing.

The prize of Hawaii fishing, though, is the Thunnus orientalis, or Pacific Bluefin Tuna.   These giants can reach 1200 pounds, and their meat is among the most succulent in the world.  It is prized all over the world for Ahi sushi and sashimi, and one Bluefin can bring thousands of dollars to the lucky fisherman in the markets of Tokyo of San Francisco.  Just be aware, though, that if you hook one of these bad boys, you re in for a long fight.  The type of fight that Hemingway wrote books about!

So enjoy your Hawaii fishing trip, whichever level of adventure it may be that you decide upon.  The 50th state has it all all you need to do is look hard enough to find it!

Fly Fishing Cannot Be Compared to Surf Fishing

Moving toward a different thought than surf fishing, we look at fly fishing. It s called fly fishing when you use a heavy and thick weighted line with a fly attached to a light leader at the end. This is often such an effective way of getting your fishing off to a great start. Now buying a fly fishing rod costs a lot of money; and learning to use one can take quite a bit of time to. What do you do if you want to get in on some fly fishing action without the extra investment in time or money? Fly fishing can be done with a regular fishing rod and reel too. As surprising as it might sound, there are lots of people who get by in fly fishing without a fly fishing rod. The is absolutely NO way you can use this technique when fishing the surf.

Your choice of fishing rod for fly fishing needs to be particularly light and sensitive. With a fishing rod outfitted with a really light line, you should be able to compensate for way you lose feel without a fly rod. Your line will help you cast lightweight flys and rigs better. You get a fly that works for you, attach it to the end of the line using a cinch knot, add on a bobber a couple of feet away from the fly and get going. Right about now, you should be ready to go fly fishing with your regular rod and reel.

All you need to do is to apply a little flying oil to  a floating fly, cast your line into an area that you are interested in trying out, and fish as you always would. You ll usually find that a fly fishing rig of this kind can be really effective with sunfish. Feisty fish like these can really go for Adam flys. As you hold your rod in place, you need to keep the line somewhat tight so that you can see you what s going on. Keep an eye on the bobber to try to tell when you have a bite. With a little practice, you should be able to tell when you have even a hit.

As with most fishing ideas, this one works best for a certain time of the day right before the sun sets. Insects happen to be very active around this time of the day and land on the surface of the water all the time. Since there are so many insects landing everywhere at this hour, the fish drop their guard and go for any fly that s landing, the one from your fishing rod included. Try this rig and technique for surf fishing one time and you will pack up your gear not to return.

Bass Fishing Better than Fishing the Surf?

Let us consider bass fishing vs. fishing the surf. Additionally, let us explore the use of computers to keep track of our fishing results.

That s right, the power of computers has entered the bass fishing game – you can t escape them. Old timers might not like the idea that bass are somehow related to computers. That s not the way we did it, right? Well, did you ever keep a log when you fished for bass. Many of the old timers did; in fact, that was considered the mark of a dedicated bass fisherman, that he studied out his prey. You probably had a notebook in which you jotted down such information as the bass depths when you were catching them. When surf fishing, the parameters are a good bit different and measurements took in other parameters.

You were sure to record the cover you found there, and you must have indicated which of your array of lures and bait did the job. You kept these logs for each trip and often referred to them when fishing the same place. You were collecting information, old timer, and that s what computers do too.

Sure, there are some who can remember everything when they went bass fishing, remember the time of day they made their catch, any maybe the lures shape, color, weight and leader length, but, unless you just go once a year, you ve probably made many catches at many places throughout your bass fishing career and probably can t remember them all. That s why you kept a log. That s what a computer can do for you too, keep a log. Instead of depth, etc for bass fishing you used tide data, wind conditions and other factors when fishing the surf.

With laptop computers now available, there s no reason to keep that paper log that probably has a water stain on every page, bait juices, maybe even a spot or two of bass blood. The thing is hard to read now. Get it all into a laptop and there will no more unreadable entries to plague you again.

What, just make a document, you ask. Sure, you could do that, but there s an even better way of keeping records of your fishing excursions. You can create your own log on the internet. There the “Fisherman s Log”, essentially an online database on bass fishing. You are able to enter information on spots you ve fished for bass. You bring up the page and record the specifics of your bass hunt for the day. You can also view other fishermen s logs, an especially useful feature when you re going to places you ve never been before. You just search for the fish you re after and a report tells you everything you ll need for that day. It even allows you to  get predictions based on the data already collected. Good way to select the next spot. It ll tell you what lures to use, at what depth they ve been caught, best time of day, and the best bait to use. You can find out how they respond to baitfish activity, in general. You can get even more general information, such as their spawning habits.

Because bass follow rigid habits, knowing how they behave will give you an advantage. At least you wont be going off riding on the boat of lady luck. You ll have computer information, and it s information that puts you over the top. Get online now, and find out how, when bass fishing, information sinks the hook.
