One of the most common fishing methods, Bottom fishing refers to the fishing technique of catching fish that feed near the sea floor.
Done from a boat and also from the land, the main aim of this fishing method is to position the bait on the bottom of the ocean and to present the bait in a way the wish is unable to resist. There are a number of different bottom fishing rigs, however, the common element amongst all rigs is the led (or sinker) to keep the bait on the bottom.
This heavy sinker can also help in casting the bait away from the boat and towards deep gullies, if your land based fishing.
The lead weight will also keep the hook and the bait stay put despite strong currents and high waves. This will give a good advantage to the angler.
