As the name suggests, bottom fishing is a technique where you catch fish near the seafloor. This is a very common method in the Puget Sound and around the world. While it may not be the most active technique, it’s a tried-and-true method used to catch a variety of fish species that prefer deeper water. Using sophisticated drifting and anchoring schemes, bottom fishing is an exciting and rewarding method of fishing in open water. In the Puget Sound, bottom fishing can yield Halibut, Sand Sharks (Dogfish), Ratfish, Ling Cod, Rockfish, Squid, and Pacific Sand Dabs, also known as flounders or “flatfish,” which live in sandy flats between 40-120 feet deep. There’s plenty of potential in this abundant and little-fished area of the sound.
