Ready to go fishing and sailing with the family?
Fishing and sailing are sports available to everyone and perfect for the family. However, there are things that you need to consider in order to live the experience to the fullest and that everyone will have a good time. In fact, the experience starts long before you go fishing and perhaps part of the magic of this hobby lies precisely in the preparation. Please note the following:
Take the lead and get a fishing license!
The fishing license is available online and is relatively inexpensive in most states. This will give you all the information you need about the different places with access to fish like lakes and rivers. You and your employees will also contribute to conservation programs for different species and their habitats.
Choose the right place
Before you go fishing and sailing, you need to decide what is the best place to do it with the whole family. When doing this, take into account the time available for the excursion, if it is more convenient to go to a place near or far that is a safe place, but above all beautiful and an unforgettable experience. Of course, if it’s a place that is full of fish, there is a great chance that the experience will be even more exciting. Use this interactive map to find fishing and sailing locations near you.
Prepare the device properly
It is very common for the thread to get caught in plants and objects that could break it or get caught on the seabed. That’s why experts always advise you to take extra lines, sinks and hooks with you. It is also common to lose the bait. That’s why a little extra bait never hurts. Obtain and organize the necessary equipment in advance before fishing.
Security is important
You need to make sure that you have enough life jackets and that they are different sizes for all family members. A first aid kit is essential, as are torches to signal when you decide to fish offshore. A flashlight and tool kit can also be very useful in an emergency.
Food shouldn’t be missing
It is a good idea to have enough supplies for a long day and to prepare the food taking into account tastes and the number of people participating in the activity. It is ideal to bring various alternatives such as fruit and various snacks, which are preferably easy to transport and eat. Make sure you pack enough drinks to avoid dehydration, especially in children.
Check the weather forecast
It is important to know if there will be rain in the area you plan to fish in, if it is extremely cold or hot, and to have detailed information about the wave conditions and ocean currents. The internet is the best source for documenting weather conditions and can also help you take the necessary action.
It is advisable to take a portable cell phone charger with you to ensure that nobody runs out of charge. A GPS kit is also important if the sense of direction fails.
The right dress
Clothing should be comfortable, light, and have pockets for storing fishing gear. It is important to wear hats or caps, sunglasses, and sunscreen, which will need to be used multiple times during the adventure.
As you can see, there are a few things to keep in mind, but you will find that it is well worth it. Fishing can be an activity that connects the family thanks to the fun moments and memories that remain after the experience.
