Here’s some tips and tricks that will help make your trip more fun and enjoyable: Make sure to have a valid saltwater fishing license. You can buy or renew your saltwater fishing license either online or by phone. 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. 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 10–20-pound test line. 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. Make sure to keep your live bait in a covered bucket or in a livewell. Consider fishing from a public pier to start. Public piers are great places to gain experience with saltwater fishing gear, rigging baits, and landing fish. When practicing catch and release, keep your catch out of the water only as long as you can hold your own breath.
