Sportfishing from your boat: Tricks and secret spots
Preparing your crownline for fishing
Essential equipment for sport fishing
Before setting sail in search of the big catch, it’s crucial to equip your Crownline with the right fishing accessories. From selecting sturdy rods and reels to stocking your tackle box with a variety of lures, each item is essential for a successful day on the water. Don’t forget a good sonar and GPS system to locate schools of fish, and consider installing a nursery to keep your bait or catch alive.
Modifications and adjustments to the vessel
Your Crownline can be a luxurious sanctuary at sea, but with the right modifications, it can also be an efficient fishing boat. Installing additional rod holders, a bait station and a fillet table can transform your boat into a top-notch fishing platform. Also, consider adding an awning to protect you from the sun during the long hours of waiting for the bite.
