While freshwater fishing is incredibly popular inland, up and down the coasts saltwater fishing draws the focus of countless anglers. It has all the same attractions as freshwater fishing with one major difference: when you go saltwater fishing, you never know just what you’ll catch or just how big the fish you reel up may be.
