I love fishing of any kind, but some people prefer fishing in saltwater and some people prefer fishing in freshwater. Many people feel very strongly about their decision, and sometimes you can elicit the same type of reaction from them as you would if you questioned their religion. Freshwater fishing is usually a slower paced style of fishing with more waiting in between bites and catching fish. You also may have to work harder to find fish when fishing in freshwater. However, I think that fishing off the bank in freshwater is far more productive than fishing from the beach in salt water. I also really like freshwater fishing, because it is less costly to successfully fish in freshwater. Also lures are more beneficial in the freshwater, so you can save money on buying bait, and also time because you are not having to bait your hook all of the time.
