It’s finally time to pack your bags, get your fishing gear on, and prepare for your deep sea fishing adventure! Along with being an incredibly fun activity, your deep sea fishing trips are the perfect opportunity for you to reunite with family and friends. Being out at sea is also calming so you can take all the time you need to relax as you devour exquisite seafood.
However, before you head out, it’s important for you to keep some safety tips in mind to get the most out of your adventure. From wearing the right gear to ensuring safety onboard, equip yourself with all the necessary knowledge beforehand.
So what safety measures can you take on your deep sea fishing adventure?
1. Look ahead before you cast
This is essential. Make it a point always to look ahead of you before you cast your net especially if you’re fishing from near the shoreline. This is important because there needs to be some space between anglers for optimal safety.
2. Eye protection
When you’re out in the sun all day, your eyes will need some form of protection from the sun’s rays. If you wish, wear sunglasses that come with interchangeable lenses. If you’re going to be fishing after dusk then you’re definitely going to need a pair of clear lenses, as these will help you in low lighting conditions.
3. Wear safety gear
If you’re fishing with your children aboard, you need to ensure they wear a Coast Guard approved flotation device that fits them well. Moreover, make sure everyone wears generous amounts of sunscreen on all exposed areas, as the suns UV rays can be harmful to your skin. Consider wearing a hat as well to keep your head cool and protect your hair from sun damage.
4. Boating safety
Before boarding, check thoroughly if all the necessary first-aid equipment is on the vessel. Learn how to use the rescue devices properly in case emergency strikes and try to stay seated during your journey. Make sure the vessel is not carrying more weight than its capacity, and be wary not to use any alcohol on board.
