Deep-Sea Fishing Adventures

 

Deep-Sea Fishing Adventures

by ZZ Troutski

Walking through those dark wooded areas searching for that whitetail is one thing; but now is the time to head into the open waters. Now is the time of year to embark on the truly awesome adventure of deep-sea fishing.

 

Sport fishing has, over the decades, turned into the ‘it’ outdoor sport when it comes to the fishing adventuressummertime. This is also one sport that – whether you are a novice or an experienced angler – you can find the perfect boat and charter trip for your personal deep-sea fishing adventure.

 

Planning a vacation from St. Augustine, Florida to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, to the blue waves of the California coast – deep-sea fishing is a huge part of making a memorable vacation. Five-star service is offered by many out there, and the fishing experience you can receive is unbelievable.

 

Deep-sea fish are extremely interesting creatures, living in a world all their own without ever coming out of the darkness to the surface. Although the angler enjoys the warmth of the sun on their backs, the deep-sea fisherman’s prey avoids the rays like the plague.

 

The lanternfish is the most common of the deep-sea creatures; although others include names like, the flashlight fish, the cookiecutter shark, bristlemouths, anglerfish (named for their human predators), and viperfish.

 

All the names are certainly adventurous, and the unique characteristics of these deep-sea organisms are not shared with the rest of the marine or animal kingdom. Bioluminescence marks some; they own that glow-in-the-dark body that helps them exist and ‘find’ their way in the darkness.

 

They also have other help when it comes to surviving in the horrific, frightening world that is the deep-sea. Hearty is certainly a word to choose to describe these inhabitants. Dealing with temperatures that rarely rise over three degrees Celsius and can fall as low as negative 1.8 degrees, the temperatures added to the low oxygen levels and mega-pressures, show that deep-sea fish were certainly created with instincts and abilities that other fish were not granted.

 

Because of their abilities to survive far below us, the deep-sea fish are a lot like the human brain. Being that they are tremendously elusive, hardly any studies have been able to be done on these creatures. They have been a part of the earth for a good, long time, seeing as that they have been able to evolve appropriately to the extreme region they call home.

 

In addition to bioluminescence, many deep-sea fish are blind and actually rely on other senses; they are extremely sensitive to changes in pressure, smell and have a true instinct built in to avoid being caught and brought to the surface – which makes the activity even more enjoyable for the deep-sea fisherman who wants to prove they can bring in the most unique game on Earth.

 

Anglerfish use their ‘light’ to claim territory, patrol their area and make sure no other fish are ‘taking over,’ as well as communicate and find a mate, and  temporarily blind predators so they can escape.

 

One of the most interesting areas of the deep-sea creature comes in the form of their actual birth. Some do enter the world in the depths of the darkness, but other species are actually born in sunlight-filled shallow water. Here, they actually sink as they mature. The reason they do not have the buoyancy of other fish is that the tissue in their bodies is dense – far heavier than that of the water in which they live. With a very high fat content, minimal bone structure and water accumulation, they get to their correct home quickly after birth. Slower and less agile than any other fish that swim in the light.

 

In the end, the deep-sea fishing experience is one of wonder and awe. The complete uniqueness of the creatures makes them one of the most memorable to hunt. So as you plan your summer vacation, get out there in that warm sun, ride the waves, and cast your line into the darkness. You never know what you’re going to get!
