Fishing Boat Trolling Fishing is a great day out. Have a fun day with your friends on a fishing boat in Goa with Atlantis Water Sports.
Trolling fishing in the sea is not to be confused with Trawling. Trawling is a form of industrial fishing, where a large net is towed behind a boat and catch large amounts of fish. Trolling a method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, are baited with lures or bait. We use live bait like a large prawn, Mullet, or sardine. We carefully rig these to mimick a fish swimming in the current. These are then drawn slowly through the water either by hand or by boat. You can caste the bait out with a fishing rod and slowly wind it in. Or in this case, the lines are set at the back of the boat and the boat slowly moves. The Fishing Boat moves forward, in a circle or on a zigzag course, depending on the conditions.
What will I catch?
This method of fishing attracts predatory fish. These are the ones that actively hunt other live fish. These are generally large powerful fish such as Salmon and Kingfish, both of which can grow up to very large sizes. They are also both prized for being extremely healthy and tasty to eat. It is also possible to catch a lot of the smaller Mackerel with this method. what you will catch will depend on factors such as time of year, weather, time of day and the behaviour of the fish on any given day. We have several methods of fishing in the sea for you to enjoy during your fishing expedition, please ask about these when you are on the boat.
