There are two different types of fishing, Offshore and in shore. They have the same basic principles as far as fishing is concerned, but the technique is a little differernt. Also the price in fuel and equipment may be just a little different too. When you go offshore its an all weekend event with one day of really fishing. Thats depending on if you have a crew or not of course but for the average joe, its an all weekend thing. The reason is when you go offshore, everything is bigger and that starts with the waves. Something is gonna get knocked loose, break, or just quit working because of the force from the waves. So usually you go on a friday fix everything from the last week, saturday you fish, and sunday you make the list of what to fix the next friday.
I grew up going offshore every weekend, we had a Sportfish and that was what we were going to do, no doubt. Never was a disccusion, come friday we were always headed to the coast. What's cool about off shore is that you can troll. Trolling is putting out the lines and putting the boat into gear and dragging the lines and when you hear the spool you set the hook and catch the fish. Along with that the fish are obviously bigger so they're more fun to fight, even the most annoying fish, the shark can be a 45 minute fight. To go offshore you have to have a big enough boat, a bass boat is going to be a little to small to take offshore, as well as most flat boats or smaller center consols. The further out you go, you have better chances of catching BIG fish.
On shore is going to be a little different, Most lakes now a days are man made. For the lakes to get rough there has to be a lot of wind compared to the ocean gravity plays its roll in. Obviously on the lake is the smaller boats and jet skis and people having a good time. No body wants to do that in the ocean because of what may be around you. If you catch 5 bass in the lake it was a good day, off shore you would use those 5 as bait. Most people have been to the lake but because of the expense, off shore is hard to make it out. If you ever get the opportuniy to go, do it but beware bass fishing will forever be a little boring afterwards.
