What to Bring

Fishing in the tropics even in July and August can be comfortable if you have the proper equipment. Summertime temperatures average in the high 80’s and low 90’s, spring and fall temperatures average high 70’s to low 80’s. Winter averages in the 70’s unless a cold front comes thru which can take the nighttime temperatures into the low 60’s and the daytime temperatures in the high 60’s to the low 70’s. Being prepared is the secret to being comfortable

Clothing

Loose fitting cotton shorts and shirt. If you are fair skinned you may want to bring a long sleeve shirt and long pants to put on during the strongest sun times. Sunburn is no fun.

A rainsuit can also be used to keep warm during early morning runs in the winter. 

Hat and bandana to keep sun off your head and neck.

Equipment

Good POLARIZED Sunglasses or snap-ons: A brown tint is the best for sightfishing. This may be the most important piece of equipment next to the rod and reel.

Sunblock: For your face I would get a sports cream sunscreen. This won’t burn your eyes when your sweat drips in your face while you’re fighting that 90lb tarpon. Whatever you use put it on and wash the palms of your hands thoroughly. Your hands can get very slippery when they get wet and you have sunscreen on them and the last thing you want to do is get sunscreen smell on your flies.

Camera: You’ll want some pictures so your friends won’t think your telling them “fish stories”.

Food and drink: I’ll have a cooler with plenty of ice. You supply your food. When it gets real warm, drinking lots of fluids is very important.

Fishing with kids

Fishing is fun for the whole family and can be a formative experience for youngsters. It gets kids outside and interested in nature. We love fishing with kids because they are curious and will listen when you explain to them how things work.
