The best advice anyone can give someone when they first start saltwater fishing is to dress appropriately. The clothing that you wear can protect you from all of the natural elements you will face when you’re out at sea.
Whether it’s stormy weather or extreme cold, be sure to find the best clothing for saltwater fishing here:
Wear lightweight, long-sleeved clothing
Perhaps the most formidable opponent you will face while fishing is not the water, but the sun. Spending all day in the sun without the proper protection can cause sunburn and even skin cancer. While you can put on sunscreen, it is highly recommended that you also wear long-sleeved clothing to better protect your skin. Just be sure whatever you’re wearing is lightweight so that you don’t overheat.
Don’t forget sunglasses
The sun can harm your skin, but it can also harm your eyes. Just as you should cover up your skin, then, it’s also important to cover your eyes. Sunglasses can limit the number of UV rays that reach your eyes, plus they can also protect you from other debris that may be flying around on your fishing trip.
In cold weather, layer up
If you’re saltwater fishing in the fall or winter months, then you’ll have to worry about the temperatures and the water more than the sun. Start with a breathable fabric as your first layer that will keep moisture away from your skin. On top of that, have another layer of breathable fabric that is thicker and will keep you warm. Finally, finish it off with a windproof and waterproof layer to best protect you from the elements.
Now that you’re dressed appropriately, it’s time to get out onto the water. At Morning Flight Charters, we have plenty of fishing trip options for you to choose from. Give us a call or book your trip today!
