There are some points to be aware of for those who go on a fishing tour by boat in the Bosphorus. First of all, although long telescopic rods used on the shore can be used on the boat, this will start to tire you after 15 minutes. Because you are already on the boat and you do not have to throw it away or in a certain area. On the other hand, since the current is too much, the weight of the bullets to be used sometimes reaches 300 grams. For this reason, it will be more practical to use boat reeds or boat reeds (or jig rods) ranging from 120 cm to 200 cm for boat fishing in the Bosphorus. It will be useful to choose the hard ones among the very delicate tip of these straws and the hard ones.


The reel to be used from the boat is as light as possible but at the same time strong. Because 200-300 g of weight and current strength will definitely tire you. However, if you have a machine on hand and you do not always go to the throat by boat, the machine in your hand can also be evaluated.

What is your target fish is important when fishing from the boat in the Bosphorus. The team you will use should be determined accordingly. You can use fake baits and hoes for fish such as horse mackerel, bluefish, bonito, and fresh or live baits such as garfish or horse mackerel are also important for methods such as long fishing lines, which are often used for bluefish.
