What Fishing Gear, Food, and Clothing Do I Bring to the Boat?

Bring a Hat for ProtectionWhether you’re fishing on a beautiful sunny day or you’re going fishing in the rain, there are many ways to prepare for a problem-free fishing trip so long as Mother Nature is on your side. Wearing the proper clothing and being equipped with useful fishing gear can help you pull off your fishing excursion without a hitch. During your packing and planning, make sure to remember the right foods to bring on your fishing trip so that you can fully enjoy your day out on in the water. Here is a checklist of what to bring on the boat:


Fishing Gear to Bring on the Boat

  • A non-level wind reel filled with braided line (spectra). You should pair it with a rod rated according that’s between 6’ and 7’.
  • Torpedo sinkers (2 each) in 6, 8, 10 oz.
  • Bait hooks
  • Medication to prevent sea sickness
  • Hand towel
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • A cooler to keep your catch fresh
  • Sunscreen


Perfect Food to Bring on the Boat

When you’re fishing, you want to gauge the amount of food to bring with the number of hours you will be on the boat. Try to bring dry foods in plastic sandwich bags to keep everything fresh and dry. For beverages, we suggest drinks in plastic bottles that contain a cap or lid.


Clothing You Should Bring on the Boat

It’s always a very good idea to think layers when you’re fishing. Temperature drops do occur when you’re out in the waters and weather conditions can change rapidly. You can always remove layers and adjust accordingly if the temperatures rises.

During really hot weather you can wear shorts and a t-shirt and bring along a windbreaker or hooded sweatshirt to wear on top if needed.

On cooler days you can wear long pants and perhaps a light jacket to go over your hooded sweatshirt.

Rain boots or deck boots (if you own a pair) are the best to wear on your feet when you’re on the boat. If you don’t have either, you can wear flat non-slip shoes. We do not recommend that you wear sandals or flip-flops.

In addition to this checklist, you can feel free to bring a camera to make sure you capture every memorable moment of your day!
