Dress for comfort on your fishing charter

Be prepared for changing weather conditions during different parts of the day. Layered clothing is an excellent choice, as mornings are colder and late afternoons are hotter. Always be ready for the surpise rain shower that might roll through. The time of year will also have a bearing on your fishing clothing. Your charter Captain will will inform you the most recent weather conditions just prior to departure. Don’t forget to ask!

Be smart on your fishing charter

Proper protection from the sun is essential for a perfect day on the water. Protective clothing and proper sun screening products will keep you safe. The sun’s direct rays, and the sun’s reflection off the water, can be very damaging for your skin, even when you are under shade. Be smart, no sunburns please.

Recommended Items to consider when packing for your inshore or offshore fishing charters:
  • Non-skid rubber sole shoes are highly recommended
  • Dress in light colored clothing as to not retain heat on hot days
  • Lightweight micro-fiber long sleeve shirts to protect arms from the sun are optimum
  • Take your biggest hat (wide brimmed is the most protection)
  • Short pants when warm, long when cold
  • Waterproof windbreaker for possible rain and cooler mornings
  • Swimsuit, as you never know when you’ll get the urge for a refreshing dip
  • Polarized sunglasses to protect your eyes, cut the glare and to see fish better
  • Sunscreen and lip balm that protect from UVA and UVB rays
  • Seasickness medication if you’re prone to seasickness
  • Bug spray for inshore fishing by the mangroves
  • Hand sanitizer if you don’t want to smell like fish
  • Waterproof bag or backpack for your personal items
  • Camera or smartphone to record your best catch

When adequately prepared for your fishing charter, you can chill and enjoy the day knowing that you have every angle covered. You can enjoy the day catching a variety of fish on your St. Petersburg, Costa Rica, Tampa Bay and Clearwater fishing charter including but not limited to, Tarpon, Snook, Trout, Redfish, Kingfish, Grouper, Snapper, Tuna, Swordfish and Mahi.

Picking a fishing charter Captain

It’s recommended to do your research when it comes time to select on which charter Captain you would like to spend the day with. Do some homework to help determine if a charter Captain would be suitable for your needs. Be sure and read the reviews of any fishing charter you are considering. It’s encouraged not to only go by the rating number, but see what people are talking about.
