Regular fishermen, though they may have the right equipment for typical fishing, will not have the right equipment for deep sea fishing at all. Though there are similarities in regard to generalities like needing bait, and a fishing hook, deep sea fishing equipment is far larger. Since the fish are much bigger, the equipment must be able to handle higher levels of weight and tension when reeling the fish in. Ocean fish are, by nature, enormous, especially when compared to your typical fish that you will pull out of a lake or river. The amount of equipment that you must have for deep sea fishing is far greater than anything you would bring on a normal fishing trip. You must also consider the type of bait you will bring. You need to also consider where you will be fishing on your trip.
