Recreational fishing techniques include hand gathering, spearfishing, netting, angling and trapping. Most recreational fishers use a fishing rod with a fishing line and a hook at the end of the line. The rod may be equipped with a reel so the line can be reeled in, and some form of bait or a lure attached to the hook.
Sport fishing is usually done with hook, line, rod and reel rather than with nets or other aids. Among the most common offshore salt water game fish are marlin, tuna, sailfish, shark, and mackerel. In North America, freshwater fish include trout, bass, pike, catfish, walleye and muskellunge.
