Do you have a big game sportfishing trip coming up soon? The anticipation for it is probably building, as you can’t wait to get out on the water and catch some fish. But before you get too excited about what’s on the horizon, you should spend some time making the proper preparations for your big trip. Check out some of the things you should do to make sure you’re all ready for your big game sportfishing adventure.
Pack seasickness medication, just in case.
The last thing you want to do is get seasick as soon as you get out on the water while big game sportfishing. It’ll ruin your trip. If you’re prone to seasickness, you should consider taking medication before you get on the boat. You might even want to speak with your doctor about steps you can take to manage seasickness.
Get ready to be out in the sun for hours at a time.
During your big game sportfishing trip, you’re going to be in the sun for a long time. That means you should pack a hat, a pair of sunglasses, and, of course, sunscreen. You should apply sunscreen early in the morning when you’re still on land and then reapply it throughout the day to prevent the sun from damaging your skin. Otherwise, you could end up having to cut your trip short due to too much sun exposure.
Bring a change of clothes.
You’re probably going to get wet while big game sportfishing. You could get so wet that you need to change your clothes. It’s not a bad idea to bring something to change into along with an extra pair of water repellent boots. It’s better to bring too much clothing along and not wear it than to be out on the water wishing you had another pair of clothes.
Learn about the types of fish you’ll be trying to catch.
If you’re going to be big game sportfishing with a guide, you should ask which types of fish you’re going to be able to catch during your trip. Then, you should research them ahead of time so that you know the best techniques to use to reel them in. It’ll increase your chances of bringing in some bigger fish.
