If you have booked a fishing trip on a charter boat from our marina, then there’s a few essential things you should bring with you for your trip.
Clothing – The first thing to bare in mind is to check the weather forecast to see if it’s going to be hot or not. This will depend on the season but typically it’s going to be warm, so you should dress accordingly to what you find comfortable. If wearing shorts and t-shirt or vest then it’s essential you apply plenty of sun screen because the sun seems warmer when you’re offshore at sea. You might also want to bring a lightweight top to protect you from the spray when powering out to sea.
Footwear is important too. Even if it’s sunny you don’t want to be wearing flip flops because you could slip and fall in. So make sure your footwear has good grip on the sole to prevent this. Training shoes would be ideal.
Sunglasses and sunblock – You’ll need a good pair of polarized sunglasses as the rays bouncing off the sea can be very powerful. And sunblock should be applied liberally as mentioned above to protect you from burning.
Camera or smartphone – You never know when that huge monster fish might come biting and you really want to take a good photo if you manage to bring it in.
Food and water – Even though you’re completely surrounded by water, you’ll want to bring plenty of it to drink as it will get very warm out there. Also some light food, especially if you might think you could get sea sick.
We’ll provide all the tackle and bait for you, so you don’t have to worry about those. We always keep up with the latest fishing tackle reviews online to make sure we provide the best equipment for you.
