Dress for comfort on your fishing charter

Be prepared for changing weather conditions during different times of the day. Layered clothing is a great choice, as mornings are cooler and late afternoons are warmer. Always be prepared for the occasional rain shower that may stroll in. The time of year will also have a bearing on your fishing attire. Your charter Captain will will inform you the most up to date weather conditions just prior to your trip. Make sure and ask!

Be smart on your fishing charter

Adequate protection from the sun is essential for a relaxing day on the water. Protective clothing and adequate sun screening products will keep you safe. The sun’s direct rays, and the sun’s reflection off the water, can be very unforgiving for your skin, even when you are under shade. Don’t be stupid, no sunburns please.

Recommended Items to think about when packing for your inshore or deep-sea fishing charters:

  • Non-skid rubber sole shoes are a necessity
  • Dress in light colored clothing as to not retain heat on warm days
  • Lightweight micro-fiber long sleeve shirts to protect arms from the sun are ideal
  • Take your largest hat (wide brimmed is the most protection)
  • Short shorts when warm, long when cool
  • Waterproof windbreaker for possible rain and cooler mornings
  • Swimsuit, as you never know when you’ll get the urge for a swim
  • Polarized sunglasses to protect your eyes, cut the glare and to see fish better
  • Sunscreen and lip balm that protect from UVA and UVB rays
  • Seasickness medication if you’re prone to seasickness
  • Bug spray for inshore fishing by the mangroves
  • Hand sanitizer if you don’t want to smell like bait
  • Waterproof bag or backpack for your personal belongings
  • Camera or smartphone to take a picture of your best catch
When adequately prepared for your fishing charter, you can relax and enjoy the day knowing that you have every angle covered. You can enjoy the day catching a variety of fish on your Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Costa Rica and Clearwater fishing charter including but not limited to, Tarpon, Snook, Trout, Redfish, Kingfish, Grouper, Snapper, Tuna, Swordfish and Mahi.

Choosing a fishing charter Captain

It’s recommended to do your research when it comes time to select on which charter Captain you would like to spend the day with. Do some homework to help determine if a charter Captain would be beneifical for your needs. Be sure and read the reviews of any fishing charter you are considering. It’s encouraged not to only go by the star rating, but see what people are talking about.
