Choosing The Right Clothing

Summertime anglers can wear bikinis and swimsuits so you can get a tan. When fishing May through September you should also bring a lightweight cover up (i.e.. technical micro fiber vented shirt, long sleeve tee, or lightweight cotton shirt to protect yourselves from excessive sun and wind exposure as well).


Fall, Winter, and Springtime anglers fishing October through April should dress for temperatures 10 to 15 degrees colder than the forecasted morning low temperature to account for wind chill while the boat is running to the fishing grounds.
