Things You’ll Want to Take with You on Your Fishing Trip

Before you even decide to go on a fishing trip it is normally good practice to make a list of what you will need to take with you, or at least check things off if you already have one. If you’ve never been fishing before then this is even more important, especially if you are going out to sea. You can’t exactly moor up at the local tackle shop to buy supplies, here are things you’ll want to bear in mind;

Take the correct tackle and equipment

People can often get caught up in the finer details or get carried away so, make sure you don’t overthink things. Do a bit of research to get information about where you are going and focus on the fundamentals, rather than trying to bring every piece of tackle and equipment you own, or going on a shopping frenzy.

Dedicated fishing pack

It’s a really good idea to have a specific bag for the tape of fishing trip you are going on but, remember to keep things in order. For example, if you are going kayaking and want to do a bit of fishing, check out the benefits of a waterproof backpack for kayaking , they’re a great idea and will ensure all of your kit, including your mobile phone stay safe and dry.

Appropriate footwear

Whatever you do, do yourself a favour and get the correct footwear for the purpose. If you are going to be venturing into the water, then you will want some waders or at the very least, a pair of rubber boots. Having said that, they can take up a lot of space and, be heavy so weigh up your options. If you aren’t going into the water, then get something lightweight that offers protection against the odd stray hook.

Poles and reels

If the place you are going to offer a rental service, then that might be a wise choice, especially if it’s your first time, the last thing that you want, is to fork out loads of money only to find that you actually don’t enjoy fishing. There is also the matter of space and the weight of your equipment so, if you can hire it will save you space in the car and shave a bit of weight off of the load.

Lure them in

Getting the right lures or bait to attract the type of fish that you want is super important, you should really speak with somebody that has experience fishing where you are going to be hoping to catch a few yourself. Sometimes, even with the correct lures or bait, you could stand there all day and not get a single bite, if you have the wrong lures, or bait then you may as well go fishing at the local swimming pool.

Spare line

Always take spare line with you, you may need it more than you realise. Many a person has gone to reel in and, either had a real struggle on their hands until finally the line breaks, your hook might get caught on something and requires the line to be cut in order to free you rod, better still, you may start getting restless and reel in to cast out again only to find that some cheeky beggar has bitten straight through your line!
