Ready For a Fishing Vacation- This Might Help
Written by: John Anderson
It’s been a long time since you had gone for a vacation. So caught up in work, so engrossed in the nitty-gritty of everyday life- you hardly have found some time to attend to yourself. And you are not the only one my friend, there are so many of us struggling to keep pace with this fast life. You deserve a break and the best way to allow yourself a breather is to go on a vacation. Take some time off, pack your bags and head out for a few blissful days.
We knew just a vacation would not interest you- you are a fisherman! Well, at least you did go fishing every day since you accepted this high paying job at the MNC! It’s time that you pause, breathe and give yourself a chance to enjoy life. Take a fishing vacation. There, we said it! Want to make the most of this vacation- plan for a vacation abroad. There could be nothing more special than traveling to brand new location and wetting your line in the unfamiliar waters.
But where do you start? Here, let me help you.
1. Location, location, location is what matters the most when planning for a fishing vacation. Where do you want to go fish? Do you want to fish for some trout or are you game for a tiring battle with a spectacular game fish? Depending on what you are looking for, choose your holiday destination. How does the Caribbean sound?
2. Now that you know which part of the world you are going to, find out where you can fish- the fishing spots to be precise. Lakes, rivers, streams or bays, piers, shores- a little research on the internet will give you a lot of information.
3. If deep sea fishing is your thing, find out what the best charters are and how much they charge for a day out in the sea. If they allow you to bring you your own tackles or do they lend you tackles for the day inclusive of the charges. Inquire if they allow children on board, if snacks and drinks are provided etc.
4. Since you are on a fishing holiday, it would probably be best to take your own tackles. You already know what fish you are targeting, so picking up rods and lures would not be difficult.
5. One important thing that you must not miss out o is to familiarize yourself with the fishing laws and regulations of the place you are traveling to. There are different rules, dos and don’ts, size and catch limits that you are expected to follow.
6. Make sure you have inquired about the hotels and accommodations. It would be nice to come back to your clean hotel suite after a tiring day of some real great fishing.
7. Your passport, visa, permits, fishing license should not be forgotten at home! These are the most essential docs and must be carried all the time.
