Fishing Trip Tips
Fishing can be a relaxing way to spend your weekends. It has been proven that fishing is one of the all-time
treasured experiences of thousands of American families. However, any sport has its dangerous side and
fishing is no exemption.
Majority of fishing equipment have sharp tools such as metal hooks which may lead to accidents when the
fishing environment unexpectedly changes for the worse. Storms, hurricanes, wild currents, and other
mishaps, could spoil your fishing trip.
If you are planning to go on a fishing expedition with family or friends, here is a list of urgent situations and
what preparations you need to face each scenario.
1) Weather – Before packing up your bags and traveling to you fishing spot, consult or be aware of the
weather conditions for the day and the following days. Whether you are fishing on shores or in a boat, you
should be cautious of the conditions such as flash floods, storm movements and darkening of the skies.
When signals such as extreme lightning strikes, you should head to dry land immediately.
Having a sun-drenched day is not really an “appropriate fishing day.” You should be aware that spending
many hours with exposure to the sun could damage your skin. Be prepared by bringing sun block to avoid
sunburns. You should be aware of heat sickness symptoms such as nausea, breathing difficulty,
lightheadedness, and unable to concentrate on tasks. Prepare a supply of water or liquid beverages to keep
2) Sharp fishing equipments – Since fishing includes many sharp tools, you should always be prepared to
treat injuries by packing disinfectants such as medicated lotion or spray and hydrogen peroxide. If an
incident leads the skin to bleed, you would need bandages, cotton or paper towel. Bring your own first aid
3) Tangles – One of the most common fishing hindrances is wherein your line is caught in anything
surrounding your fishing spot such as trees, logs, etc. Try to get your line or fishing rod out of the tangle
immediately to avoid the problem that could lead into a major accident. You could either snap off the
branches of the tree or carefully and slowly remove your line away from where it is tangled.
4) Bait – When you run out of bait, it could spoil your while fishing trip. Avoid this by splitting up the rest
of the bait into halves, quarters or thirds. The worm, even if divided, could still move, so the divided worms
could still lure your target fish.
Be prepared to face any scenario to keep your fishing adventure as relaxed as possible. With all these in
mind, you could enjoy your fishing trip safely and successfully.
