The waters of Boston were so ready for the 2019 Fishing Event. Starting with a healthy breakfast, the participants, organizers, and sponsors had fun gathering together and casually talking about what’s new in the fishing arena. After a few hours, when more attendees arrived, the vessels were prepared for a full day of casting aboard professional fishing boats for the participants to try, of course, with a local captain for each boat. It was an inspiring event, especially for those who were planning to start or improve their fishing skills or to create a startup fishing business.
So what are the steps in learning how to fish?
Step 1. Go to the pharmacy and buy a pack of seasick meds. If there’s one thing that can destroy your first fishing day, it’s getting seasick. You’d be surprised at how easily a beginner on the water can feel ill. Bonine is one of the most common seasick medications that beginners usually take, and it has worked for almost each one of them.
Step 2. Learn more about fishing by reading books or searching for articles about it on the web. Perhaps there might be things that you have missed checking or looking into that you’ll surely learning from your reads. Check out some fishing blogs that will help you anticipate the challenges that you will encounter when you go out to the water to fish.
Step 3. Time to choose a head boat or party boat to rent. These are types of boats that carry about 20 to 70 anglers. They also are equipped with everything – rod, bait, sinkers, reels, and hooks. The boat sellers will usually offer to help you fish and then carry the fish you’ve caught off the shoreline for you, so take their offer! It would be better to rent a boat initially as you are still a beginner, and investing in a new boat would be impractical.
Step 4. Once you’ve gotten used to operating a reel and rod, now you should find yourself a fishing pier. There’s usually at least one pay-to-fish pier for each coastal city that out into the sea, or perhaps into the river. You can buy your bait from there. By this time, you have already taken your seasick medication the night before you go fishing, but you still need to take one with you just to be safe. Once you’re off to sea, you might feel nervous as your navigating by yourself. If you are anxious about this, it will help to bring a friend along who knows fishing and can guide you along the way.
