We get a lot of requests for podcast topics, but here’s one of the most common ones…

How do you catch inshore slams in a new spot?

If you grew up in a place without access to saltwater (like this podcast guest did), or if you’re an experienced saltwater angler and you just want to find more spots, you’ve probably asked yourself this same question.

Here’s some good news: it’s possible to find new spots and become really consistent at catching fish in them faster than you might think.

In this podcast episode, Dilan Ekmark is sharing his system for how he went from a complete saltwater newbie to catching nice fish nearly every time he goes out.

He moved down to Florida from Ohio just six months ago, and since then he’s become a really good saltwater angler (and he doesn’t even have a boat!).

But it didn’t start out that way.

His first trip out in his new kayak in his new city was a failure.

He spent several hours on the water and didn’t even have a single bite to show for it.

But he didn’t give up.

He came up with a system for how to find spots and catch fish, and in this episode he’s going to share with you that exact system.

You’ll learn:

  • The first thing he did when he decided he was going to master saltwater fishing (after getting skunked his first few trips)
  • His 3 favorite lures that he always brings on the water
  • His favorite types of spots to catch a ton of fish
  • What he learned that took him from inconsistent angler to being able to catch fish nearly every time he goes out
  • Some common mistakes he made when he first started fishing that he doesn’t make anymore (which has resulted in several 100+ fish days)
  • And much more

I love how methodical and persistent Dilan is when it comes to fishing.

He struggled his first few times out and instead of giving up, he came up with a system of finding spots and catching fish.

What do you do when you struggle?

Are you as thoughtful and determined about catching fish as Dilan?

And here’s the cool thing…

He took one day to find some fishy-looking spots around his house.

Not a year, not a month, and not even a week.

Just one day.

And then he fished them and learned the trends.

Think you can do that?

I think so!

Now one thing he mentioned was getting a good wind and tide app.

Check out where we’ve added everything you need to plan your fishing trip:

You’ve got wind, tide, weather, satellite maps, sonar maps, and even the Strike Score to tell you how well the fish should be biting.

Great podcast. I’m another saltwater newby, I switched from bass to inshore. Only been skunked once in almost 2 years, thanks to Salt Strong. I’ve, also, found the more pre trip planning I do, the better my results are. Game plans are just as important in fishing as in other sports. Great job, Dilan
