We know you’re probably excited for your adventure out on the water, but it is important that you take the time to ensure you are properly outfitted before the boat leads the dock. By taking a few minutes to plan your packing list, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re prepared for practically anything Mother Nature throws your way.
Here are a few essential things to keep in mind as you pack for your upcoming fishing charter in Kailua-Kona, HI.
The harsh rays of the sun can be incredibly harmful as they reflect off the water and against your skin or eyes. You’re not even safe on cloudy days, as powerful UV rays can shine through even when it’s overcast. Protect your skin from a painful sunburn and your eyes from damage by packing a few essential sun protection items. Pack a baseball cap or an angler’s hat to keep your eyes, face and parts of your neck covered. Apply SPF 45 sunscreen liberally to ensure your souvenir won’t be a painful sunburn. Remembering to bring sunglasses not only protects your eyes, but a pair with polarized lenses may also help eliminate the glare off of the water.
Good shoes are crucial to ensuring that you’re at the top of your fishing game. As you embark on the open water, the water will splash into the boat and onto the deck. Unless you want to spend your afternoon slipping and sliding, it’s best to pack a pair of waterproof footwear. Not only will they keep you well grounded on the deck, but a good pair of shoes will also protect your feet from the water.
Lots of layers
Any experienced angler knows that the temperature on land can differ greatly from the temperature out on the water. The best way to remain comfortable throughout the day is to dress in layers. By layering, you’ll be able to avoid ever being overheated or too cool just by adding or removing a few layers. Your top layer should always include a waterproof or water resistant long sleeve shirt or windbreaker. Then throw on a button-up shirt over a t-shirt. For bottoms, wear a pair of long athletic pants over a pair of shorts. This way you won’t have to cancel your fishing charter due to being unprepared for unforeseen rain or cooler temperatures.
