Saltwater Fishing Tips

By Fishing

Due to the different types of saltwater fish and number of saltwater fishing tips and techniques that can be applied, learning all the tricks when it comes to how to saltwater fish can be a challenge for both seasoned anglers and beginners.

Just remember, the types of fishing tackle and gear that is used for saltwater fishing differs considerably based on the species and the specific fishing techniques that are applied. Other saltwater fishing tips to keep in mind:

  1. Make sure to have a valid saltwater fishing license.
  2. Check a local tide chart when planning your inshore saltwater fishing trip. One of the most important inshore fishing tips is to plan your trips based on tidal movement.
  3. Choose the right spinning rod and reel combo. Start out with a 7-foot, medium weight spinning rod and reel combo that’s rated for 10 to 20-pound test line.
  4. Use live or natural baits or your favorite fishing lures. Natural baits, such as shrimp or baitfish, offer you the best opportunity for consistent action.
  5. Make sure to keep your live bait in a covered bucket or in a live well.
  6. Consider fishing from a public pier to start. Public piers are great places to gain experience with inshore saltwater fishing gear, rigging baits, and landing fish.
  7. When practicing catch and release, keep your catch out of the water only as long as you can hold your own breath.

Learning how to saltwater fish is as much about the adventure as it is about the fish. Many of the sport fish species can be big and mean, and the water can be big and bad. From shallow saltwater flats to deep ocean fishing, saltwater anglers chase everything from dainty speckled trout to massive blue marlin in some of the most intense and inspirational surroundings on earth.

What is (Gyo = fish Taku = imaging)?

Fish Rubbing originated in the Orient back in the early 1800′s. It has been used to preserve records of fisherman’s catches. As time has moved on, people have found the prints to be visually pleasing.The Art of Gyotaku is a delicate and ever-changing art form. The potential to create new and different works increase with each new design.Each fish rubbing is unique. The set up can be changed in a variety of ways. We can use a broad range of prints or inks. The printing stock can vary from the gentlest rice paper to a much firmer canvas.The basic method remains relatively simple. Apply paint or ink to the actual fish and lay your paper or canvas on top of it. Then rub over the entire fish and gently peel the paper off to have a look at your new creation.It is also a wonderful way to stay close to the ocean and appreciate the beauty and variety of marine life.Also, it is said that it brings good luck to the fisherman.

We are looking forward to showcasing our products in your store and helping to add to your profit in 2021! You can find more information on becoming a retailer and sign up here: https://www.fishayetrading.com/contact/wholesale/.

Unique Items for Coastal Homes

By Fishing

Fishaye Trading Company is here to help you find items to decorate your coastal home. These aren’t just any items though, they are unique Gyotaku Fish Art pieces. Artist and owner, John Doherty, has his own method of Gyotaku. “First, I mix up paint or ink and then apply it directly on the fish. Next, I simply cover the fish with fine paper or fabric and gently rub.” The Gyotaku technique that is used allows accurate images of fish to be turned into art.

Fishaye produces a lot of different products using this technique. A broad range of prints and inks can be used on anything from fragile rice paper to a firm canvas.

Some of the products that Fishaye offers include:

  • Nautical Wall Art: All Gyotaku fish prints (collages, metal, and nautical prints) are IGEN prints on premium matte paper and some include a 1/8” thick clear acrylic and foamcore backing.
  • Trays: There are two different types: driftwood and melamine. Driftwood trays are made from genuine pieces of driftwood with two galvanized dock cleats as handles. Melamine trays are thick, dishwasher safe and excellent quality.
  • Tabletop Accessories: These whimsical tabletop accessories (bowls, placemats, boarder placemats, plates, and Sillipint cups) are all made with original Gyotaku artwork and will stand out in your house. These accessories allow a no-fuss clean up, so don’t worry about putting them away when guests come over.
  • Nautical Art Accessories: Just like all of the other products, these small home accessories (single light switch plates and notecards) also use the Gyotaku technique. Single light switch plates are made of metal with the lobster image baked in the and then sealed. They are sturdy, chip resistant, and perfect for any beach house. The unique notecards come in a variety pack with ten different images and include envelopes. These would be great to send to friends and family!

All of these products are made in the United States of America, off of the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Products that use wood are made with reclaimed cedar wood, so no trees are harmed in the creating of our work.

Fishing: Good for the Body & Soul

By Fishing

When you think of fishing, you no doubt have a preconceived vision of what it’s all about. Some see it as a sport or an obsession, while others see it as a hobby to do with friends or in solitude – no doubt accompanied by an adult beverage of your choice. It can be all those things, but did you know that it can be healing to your soul and beneficial to your body? No…well, let’s talk!

  • It has fitness benefits! Yes, it may not seem like much of a workout to cast your line and reel it back in – but do that for about two hours and you’ve given yourself a low-impact cardio workout without ever setting foot in a gym. Head down to the local pond and reel in a couple of fish. Once you get the hang of that, try more active techniques like fly fishing. Up for a real challenge? Try your hand at pelagic fishing offshore for the full body work out!
  • Fresh air detoxifies our lungs. Spending time in nature with a fishing pole fills our lungs with clean air that is rich with oxygen.
  • Being around water is especially good for you. This is because moving water produces negative ions, tiny charged particles that have been shown to boost the immune system, increase metabolism, and regulate your sleep patterns.
  • A boost of Vitamin D. That’s right – being out in the sunshine can also boost your immune system and your mood. But, don’t forget the sunscreen!
  • Unplug…we live in a fast-paced, app-filled world where focusing on one thing has never been more of a challenge. Fishing has a mindful, meditative effect on the brain. According to a 2012 study, even a single trip can improve short-term concentration. Repeated sessions can build up a person’s attention span more permanently, helping them do better in education, work, and generally throughout their lives.

Other added benefits are making time to spend with buddies, eating healthier (if you’re taking your catch of the day home!) and bonding with your family on fishing trips.

So, there you have it! It may all sound like the biggest fish story you’ve every heard, but give it a try. Throw caution to the wind, take a day off and cast that line – what do you have to lose?
