Every fisherman gets excited this time of year. Winter is over and the warm weather only means one thing, the start of fishing season. There’s a lot to do: wax the hull, preform engine maintenance, schedule your launch date and throw on bottom paint are a few at the top of the list.
While all this is important, most people are so focused on getting the boat ready they neglect their fishing gear & crew. Early season is a great time to prepare before problems occur and ruin many a fishing trip.
Keeping your tackle in proper working order will help prevent failure and make sure everything you need is on board.
Performing ongoing preventative maintenance on your rods and reels is a no brainer in salt water environments, but don’t forget your pre-season startup ritual.
80% of a successful fishing trip comes from having a prepared crew who know how to perform their roles on deck.
Lastly always make sure your boat is properly equipped with all safety gear required by the US Coast Guard and enough PFDs for everyone onboard. A free safety inspection from your local Coast Guard Auxiliary Squadron is a great way to ensure you haven’t forgot anything.
The spring startup can be a bit overwhelming with so much to do, but following these simple tips will get you summer ready and ensure time on the water is spent catching fish and making awesome memories.
