What To Bring With You On Your Fishing Trip
Food and Drinks:
We suggest that you bring lunch with you. We have a microwave on board if you would like to heat something up. Bring plenty to drink especially if it is a hot sunny day
Sun Block and Hat
Jacket or Sweatshirt:
It is often cooler on the water. Always be prepared to dress warmer and dress comfortably too! Best to leave your good nice white sneakers behind. Better to wear an old pair.
