Tips for Staying Warm During a Cold Weather Deep Sea Fishing Trip
Deep sea fishing can lead to a great haul in the winter, but staying warm while on board can be a challenge. Fortunately, with a few tricks and tips, you can stay comfortable during your journey without compromising the catch you bring in. As you board a fishing charter during the winter, follow this advice to stay warm.
Look to Layers
To make sure you’re comfortable throughout your fishing trip—not too hot, nor too cold—then dress in layers. Layering allows you to adjust the way you’re dressed according to how you feel. If you get too warm, you can shed a few layers, and if you get cold, you can add them back on again. Your core layer should always be made of a fabric that keeps moisture away from your body, such as cotton.
Pay Attention to Your Hands and Feet
If your hands and feet don’t stay warm and dry, you could feel miserable for the entire fishing trip. Wear gloves that keep your hands dry and warm, and bring multiple pairs, so you can change them if they get wet. For your feet, wear thin, cotton socks against your skin, and then cover them with thicker socks made of wool or another material designed to keep out the cold. Insulated boots will also help.
Protect Your Core
If your body’s core stays warm during your trip, you’ll be much more comfortable. Make sure that at least some of your layers of clothing are large enough to remain securely tucked in while you’re fishing. If they are not, your midriff could be exposed, which will allow the warmth inside your layers of clothing to escape.
