Fishing Boats: From Little To Gigantic
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Depending on where you like to fish and the time of year that you go and your budget, the fishing boat that you end up with may be as simple as a blow up boat that holds one person and their gear to a gigantic, ocean going affair with all of the bells and whistles that every fisherman dreams of . No matter what type of boat you end up, make sure that you observe all rules for the waterway that you are using, including fishing laws and regulations and be safe.

Anytime you take a boat onto the water, no matter what size the body of water is, there is an additional element of danger to contend with. Even if you have fished a lake or river countless times, you must keep in mind that there might be hidden dangers just beneath the surface. There are some basis safety rules to keep in mind whenever fishing on the water. These rules are:

1. Know your area, and make sure that at least one person has an idea of where you will be and when to expect you back. Although the idea of having a secret fishing hole is certainly a romantic notion, it is not really very realistic in the long run.

2. Use flotation devices, regardless of your swimming abilities.

3. Take along a cell phone to use during emergencies. Hopefully you will have service, and more importantly, never need to use it, but it is best to have one if you do need to have one.

4. Save the drinking for when you’re back on the shore or preferably, at home. Drinking in a boat is not only dangerous, it is also illegal, and can cost you a hefty fine or worse.

5. Use the right size boat and motor (if you need one) for the water that you are fishing. There is nothing more ridiculous than watching someone try to get a boat that is either way too big or way too small into the water.

6. Know the limits for boat sizes for the waters that you are fishing. Some lakes have size restrictions as well as limits for the motor and the horsepower that they will put out. Some lakes have certain areas that will require motors being turned off- know before you go or you may have to pay the penalty.
