The 3rd edition of Jeff Webster’s Fitting Out For Bay & Coastal Fishing magazine is available now from selected newsagents (and right here online), this square back, 132 page glossy publication is a comprehensive guide to buying a new boat and setting it up for fishing.
Experienced anglers may know how to rig up their boats for fishing, but if you’re not quite sure where to put that rod holder, how to set up your outriggers, or what size live bait tank you might need, then you’ll want to grab a copy of this first-rate magazine.
Inside the magazine you’ll find a heap of useful information, starting with a series on buying a new boat, engine and trailer. There’s a feature comparing 2-stroke and 4-stroke outboards, how to make the most of your cockpit fishing space, and another which covers what to look for when buying a fishing cuddy cabin in the popular 5.2 - 5.8 m size range. Does the perfect fishing cuddy cab exist? This chapter looks at boat size, cabin vs cockpit size, cockpit design, boat handling, ride, performance, and more.
The magazine then moves on to a series of articles on how to set up your boat for fishing bay, coastal and offshore waters. There are chapters (illustrated with a dozen or more photos) covering tackle storage, rod holders and racks, berley buckets, outrigger fishing, live bait and fish tanks, bait cutting boards, and more.
Electronics gear has not been forgotten either - with a stand-alone chapter on depth sounders (with information on digital sounders and the new “CHIRP” technology models) and another covering GPS chart plotters, marine radios and safety gear.
Rounding out the publication is a 25 page guide to some of the best bay and coastal fishing boats on the market today. In this section you’ll find an enormous variety of craft - from 4.1 m light weight car toppers through to 9.0 m offshore sport fishing craft.
Whether you’re interested in buying a new boat, or looking for set up ideas for your current rig, you’ll find Fitting Out For Bay & Coastal Fishing to be a mine of information and DIY tips and techniques. It’s the sort of mag you’ll want to thumb through time and time again - one that is worth a permanent place on your book shelf.
