Fishing is one of the most versatile boating activities. Whether you prefer active fishing or take a more passive, relaxed approach, you can still enjoy this popular sport. Beyond basic equipment like a rod, reel, line, lures, and bait, there are many accessories you can bring aboard to maximize your fun and leisure time. Next time you head down to the marina, consider packing some of this gear:
Old fashioned charts are reliable, but not always easy to use, especially if you want to get to a prime fishing spot and drop anchor soon so you can start enjoying your day. Instead, you can use a boat-mounted GPS, or a smaller handheld unit. For extra safety, bring two units so you can find your way home if one of them fails.
For the ultimate relaxing fishing experience, you can catch your favorite sporting event or TV show while you’re out on the water. Make sure you get a water-resistant model, because it will probably get splashed.
Different fish species prefer different water temperatures. With this electronic accessory, you can monitor the precise temperature at different depths to ensure that you’re in the right spot to make the catch you want. As the temperature fluctuates throughout the day, you can move your boat to follow the fish.
