    everything is different

    for deep sea fishing:

    1) heavier tackle

    2) short and sturdy boat rod

    3) you use a conventional reel vs spinning or baitcasting

    4) you usually drift fish

    5) you use live or dead bait, no artificial


    1) light tackle

    2) all i use is artificial lures

    3) your reel doesn't need to hold much line because most lakes aren't real deep

    4) personally i find it more enjoyable because your not using this big heavy equipment

    5) the fish don't fight as hard as saltwater fish

    Source(s): fish both fresh and saltwater

    Deep sea fishing just means your fishing in saltwater 25 feat or deeper. Just a correction to the other poster, you can use bait and lures when deep sea fishing.
