New & used Sea fishing tackle

Fishing at sea is practiced a lot all over the world. You can practice sea fishing in many ways and fish for different species of fish. You can do it in the Netherlands from different places from the beach, the rocks or on a boat. All ways have their charm and can be practiced in different ways.

Fishing from the beach

When fishing from the shore, you quickly think of beach fishing. Apart from this you can also make use of the many piers, harbours and breakwaters that our coast is rich in. For this, the use of long rods is a must. Beach rods have the length and ability to cast large distances of up to 200 meters. Longer rods will also make it easier to manoeuvre around obstacles and basalt blocks. A good merry-go-round is absolutely necessary to cast long distances and to accommodate enough fishing line. Luckily, for beach fishing trollies have been developed to transport your tackle box or fishing case. A pier or beach is always longer than you think and you'd like to bring your bottom line & accessories, bait, rod rests in an easy way.

There are two ways to do the so-called inshore fishing. Active and static. In the active way a paternoster is ejected by lead and slowly turned inside again. You can attach small feathers or even silver threads to the paternoster. You will see that especially the predators, such as mackerel and geep, find this interesting. If you want sea bass from the shore, there are special sea bass rods and lures for this.

Static bottom fishing is also very popular among sea anglers. The bait, such as a sawhorse, sea pier or knife lifter, is thrown as far as possible from the beach. The rod is placed in the rod support and the line is tensioned. Because the special beach rods have a subtle top, the bites are good. In this way plaice, dab and possibly tongue are your loot. Also sea bass is not dirty from a saw, so be surprised.

Fishing from a boat

When fishing from the boat you are often active. For this purpose there are special boat rods with possibly a sea mill and/or sea fishing reel. The nice thing about this way of fishing is that you can use a lot of lures. Mackerel fishing with feather paternosters is well known. Fishing with pilkers in the vicinity of shipwrecks is another spectacular activity. This wreck fishing requires a lot of your equipment, because fish such as cod have to be removed quickly from the wreck. A sea fish reel and a strong fishing line will certainly come in handy. 
With the above ways of fishing from the boat it is anchored. But in foreign countries there are often trolling at sea as well. For the biggest fish at sea this is also called big game fishing. For this purpose, special trolling rods have been developed with large sea lines to catch fish such as tuna, marlin, sharks and sailfish.

Sea bass fishing

Sea bass is a fish species that is fished specifically in the Netherlands and is therefore specifically described. Sea bass is often fished with a bass rod that has the same properties as a carp rod, therefore a carp rod is often used. You need a rod of at least 3.0 meters with a high casting weight. Underneath that you need a large windmill, at least size 4000. This way you often fish with various sea bass lures like spoons, crankbaits and pilkers. The rod must be able to cast this light lure far, but also powerful enough to master the fish. Sea bass loves clear water and is a smart fish. A fork of fluorocarbon is therefore not a superfluous luxury.
You can also fish for sea bass with a fly rod, of course with a fly reel underneath. We recommend an aftma of at least #8 to a maximum of #10 and a length of at least 2.70M.

Tip: always rinse your sea fishing gear with (lukewarm) water after fishing. This will extend the life of the material. 
With our second-hand marine fishing gear you can often tell by the condition of your equipment whether you have always done this.
