Getting The Most Out Of Your Fishing Charter Experience

One of the most thrilling things you can do during a trip to Cabo San Lucas is to take a trip on a Cabo fishing charter. If you’ve never gone on a charter fishing expedition, there are a few things you should know before you climb aboard. Here are some helpful hints to get the most out of your adventure.

Choose The Right Shoes

To stay safe and prevent slipping on a wet deck, be sure to wear a pair of shoes that provide traction. Rubber-soles with grips, such as those found on deck shoes, are the best choice. Remember that the boat may be very wet, so be prepared to part ways with your shoes in the event that they become soaked with seawater.

Bring A Personal Emergency Kit

Even if you’ve been on a boat before, you might not know how you’ll react on the choppy waters you’ll encounter on a charter fishing boat. Be sure to pack medication for motion sickness and over-the-counter pain relievers in the event you develop a headache. You’ll also need sunblock to prevent sunburn and sunburn relief lotion in the event you develop a sunburn. Remember that sunlight reflects on water, making it easier for you to get burnt even with sunblock. 

Pack A Cooler

Some charter boat companies offer light snacks and beverages, but many do not. Pack a small cooler or insulated bag with bottled water and a few snacks so you can stay hydrated and stave off hunger during a long trip. In some cases, inclement weather could extend your time at sea, and you don’t want to be without food and water until you return safely to shore.

Don’t Forget Your Camera

Cabo San Lucas is the perfect spot for fishing. You may get to see sharks, tuna and mackerel. Depending on how far out your boat takes you, it’s possible you may encounter whales as well. Be sure to have your camera with you so you can take pictures and capture video of these majestic creatures. You’ll also be able to bring back proof of your big catch to share with friends and family. Consider investing in a water-proof camera so you don’t damage your smartphone or traditional digital camera.

If you get the chance to visit Cabo San Lucas, be sure to take some time to enjoy a fishing charter trip. Whether you are an experienced angler or you’ve never fished before, you’ll have a great time as long as you are prepared when you board the boat.
