This year will be the second year that I have organized a fishing trip for my buddies and whilst I know that things went well last year, I have an eye on making sure that this year is even better. In fact, I have already been looking at Miami yacht rentals so that we can head out on to the ocean and snare ourselves some outstanding catches to write home about. I have learned a few things already about planning a fishing trip and whilst it is completely up to you and your friends where you go and what you do, there are some important points which you need to remember.
Picking the Right Spot
When it comes to picking the location for your fishing trip, I would advise that you make this a democratic process and make your decision based on a general consensus. During this time it is important that you not only consider what kind of species it is that you are looking to target, you should also be thinking about the surrounding area, the nightlife, the weather, accommodation and other important factors.
It is important to remember that this is not just a vacation and that a simple flight from point A to point B is not all that you have to consider. The reason behind this is that everyone is going to need equipment and whether they take it with them or they rent it out there, you need to bear this in mind when planning the trip.
Getting on The Water
It’s all well and goo deciding to go to a certain place because there are some exotic fish there but you need to make sure that you are going to go to the perfect spot and that you have the means to do so. Many popular fishing places have guides and charters which will take you out and show you the best spots, as part of your planning process you should already be looking into this side of the trip.
Creating a Challenge
Getting out on the water and shooting for fish is all well and good, but where is the adventure in that? Instead, why not start planning a competition so that you and the group can really ramp up the stakes with a little bit of competitive energy. If you are going to do this, I would advise that you get it planned quite early on so that everyone has time to get the energy flying around.
If it is you that is organizing the trip, you need to make sure that everyone knows exactly where they are going and when, how much it will cost and what they need to bring. I usually send out a sort of newsletter which gives everyone all of the information that they need and this ensures that I no longer have responsibility over these details.
