You can fish off a pier or on the rocks, but real fishermen get out there in the middle of the blue. They take their boats as far from familiar territory as possible until the mainland is nothing but a blur on the horizon. That’s where all the fish are hiding, just waiting to be caught.
If you have recently decided to walk the path of a true fisherman, then there are a couple of things you should be sure are taken care of before you take that boat for a spin.
- Make sure that boat is insured. Insurance resources like http://www.insurancetown.com/ have lots of information on boat insurance. Even if you happen to live in a part of the country where boat insurance isn’t required, you’ll still want to have it.
- Stock that boat with life preservers. You’ll want to have as many life preservers are there are seats in that boat – perhaps a few extra. And don’t believe any of the macho nonsense about how you don’t need them. You do! Enough said.
- Your tackle, of course. This includes all your important fishing gear like your rod, your bait, your reels, your string, your hooks and pretty much anything else you will need to catch a real big one.
