Offshore, it’s common to need to cast underhanded when presenting a bait to a moving fish or sending a lure into a feeding blitz. In both cases, you must identify the target and mentally compensate for any fish movements, wind or both before letting your lure fly. You want the bait to land several feet ahead of and beyond a fish, where it can be reeled back into the fish’s path. Next, grasp the line, open the bail, bring the rod around to your side — much like a baseball player getting ready to swing a bat, but more parallel to the water — and make the cast. Again, for more distance, snap back on the rod butt during the swing. The key essentials are the same as for overhand casting, except all the movements follow a horizontal plane.
