Bay Fishing offers anglers lots of options. The bays are great places to fish for so many different saltwater fish. Depending on what part of the country you are in, you may be catching redfish, snook, sea trout, flounder, tarpon, sharks, striped bass, bluefish or striped bass. The bays usually offer a lot of protection from the wind, which allows anglers a chance to target some big saltwater fish in smaller boats. With little wind, anglers can fish comfortably in most bays with a variety of boats. Skiffs, bay boats and even kayaks will usually be quite safe in the bays. When the winds pick up, most bay boats in the 18 to 22 foot range are still suitable for fishing.
