Now, by no means am I a pro when it comes to catching these magnificent creatures. I am constantly learning, evolving and adapting techniques. But, like you, I had to start somewhere. I used to think chasing game fish was extremely hard and outside my capability. I assumed a launch was a minimum requirement. But after a bit of research and talking to experts I figured we didn’t need big boats with diesels, nor outriggers (although they definitely help) and big game reels. You will find when it comes to big game fishing that everyone has their own systems and their own opinion. And it’s best to listen and learn. You may not agree with the way everyone fishes, but that’s what they have found works for them. Hopefully, before long you will be helping someone set up their boat and gear.
