6 Winter Fishing Tips

Have a case of cabin fever? Winter fishing not only gets you out of the house but it's just as fun as a day on the water on your boat. Well not really. Who are we kidding?!

Winter fishing does offer interesting challenges and opportunities for a great catch and a great time. So before you head out, here are some helpful winter fishing tips to help keep you safe.

  • Never fish alone! If you happen to fall in the water or encounter symptoms of hypothermia, it’s best to have help around.
  • Carry spare clothing. In case you fall in the water, you can change into dry clothes.
  • Carry extra gloves. Your hands are going to get wet, so in order to prevent frostbite, put your hands in warm, dry gloves often. And if your gloves do get wet, you’ll have an extra pair to put on.
  • Carry a thermos with warm liquid, decaffeinated tea or soup. Caffeine can exaggerate the feelings of cold so it’s best to avoid drinking it. Also, you don’t want to shock your system if you’re already suffering from exposure, so don’t drink anything that’s beyond warm. Maintain a steady flow of warm hydration.
  • Keep blankets or sleeping bags in your backpack or car.
  • Carry a cell phone or radio in case you need to call for help.
