Nearshore fishing refers to a type of fishing that takes place in the waters close to the shore, typically within a few miles of the coastline. This method falls between inshore and offshore fishing, targeting species that inhabit the areas just beyond the surf zone but still relatively near the shore. Nearshore fishing is characterized by its accessibility, as it allows anglers to venture into slightly deeper waters without the need for extensive offshore travel. Anglers engaging in nearshore fishing often use a variety of boats, including small to medium-sized vessels that are suitable for navigating waters beyond the shallows. The targeted species in nearshore fishing can vary, but common catches include species like mackerel, snapper, grouper, and other fish that are found in the nearshore regions. Anglers may use a mix of live or artificial baits, and the techniques employed can include trolling, casting, or bottom fishing. Nearshore fishing provides a balance between the accessibility of inshore fishing and the potential for larger catches found further offshore. It is a popular choice for anglers seeking a diverse range of fish species while remaining relatively close to the coastline.
