What To Pack for Fishing Trips on the Gulf

Spring is in full swing, and summer is almost here. It's time to plan your fishing trip with Captain Kyle and crew. You can book your fishing charter early to secure your preferred date. Summer is an ideal season for fishing due to the warm water temperatures, which attract various types of fish. However, please ensure you have some necessary items before your fishing expedition because of exposure to the sun, salt, and high temperatures. This list is just a few suggestions; everyone's needs differ, so pack the basics, but be sure to bring what you need.

Sun Protection

One essential item is sunscreen, which protects your skin from harmful UV rays. To ensure maximum protection, choose a water-resistant sunscreen with a high SPF. You can also include some SPF for your lips, too. Additionally, you can wear head coverage, such as a hat or cap, to shield your face and eyes from the sun's glare on the water.

Sunshades are another essential item that you should bring along on your fishing charter. They will provide additional protection for your eyes, reducing eye strain and damage from prolonged exposure to the sun. Polarized sunglasses are also recommended, as they help you see through the water's glare and increase your chances of spotting fish.

Hydration & Refreshments

To make the most of your fishing trip, it's essential to pack a variety of food and drink options. Consider packing snacks high in protein and fiber, like jerky, nuts, and granola bars, to keep you full and energized throughout the day. Remember to pack plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially if you're in the sun. If you prefer other beverages, consider packing sports drinks or electrolyte-replenishing beverages to help replenish vital nutrients lost through sweating. With a well-stocked cooler, you can fish comfortably and efficiently for hours.

We Provide the Fishing Gear

In summary, summertime is an optimal season to go fishing because the warm waters attract various fish species.
