If you love a day spent on the water fishing, it’s vital to bring all of the gear and essential items you’ll need to have a safe and enjoyable experience. Before your next fishing trip on your Rogue Jet Boat, make sure you have a few essential items packed and ready to go with you.
You don’t want to drive your car without your driver’s license, so you don’t want to operate your boat without your boating license. Make sure you have it with you in case of any run-ins with marine police units. If you intend to do any fishing, make sure you have your fishing license as well.
A Trusty Knife
Fishing often requires a lot of cutting fishing line, adjusting hooks and other devices, and maybe even some onboard filleting between casts. A knife is a very versatile and useful tool to have, so make sure you have a good one with you whenever you cast off for a day on the water.
You need to check your local boating laws to determine what type of life jackets and other emergency tools you need to have onboard. Generally, it’s a good idea to have at least one life jacket for every passenger, some type of throwable flotation device, a flare to signal for help if necessary, and a fire extinguisher.
Spending a day fishing allows you to soak up some sun but be sure to do so safely. Wear sunscreen and weather appropriate protective clothing. When applying sunscreen, remember that you’re not only exposed to the sun overhead but also the reflection of the sun’s light from the surface of the water below you.
Rods and Reels
You can’t fish without fishing equipment, so make sure you bring a reliable rod and reel with you on the boat. It’s a good idea to bring a spare just in case of an unexpected breakage, too.
Fishing is a treasured pastime, but it’s essential to fish safely and responsibly. A Rogue Jet Boat can be the perfect vessel for you and your fishing buddies to get the most out of your time on the water. Contact us today to learn more about the aluminum-crafted fishing boats we sell.
