If you love fishing as much as we do around here, you’re going to need to have a great deal of knowledge. There is a lot more to fishing than just knowing how to bait a hook and cast a line. If you try to learn everything about fishing on your own, it can be a long time before you can start catching big fish. Rather than trying to learn on your own, you should consider a booking a fishing charter. There are several reasons why working with a guide for a day or two will boost your angling hobby, no matter how much experience you already have.
Spending just one day with a fishing guide is a great way to put you ahead of the game. If you try to teach yourself, you can end up sinking a lot of money into days on the water where you catch nothing. When you work with a guide, it is almost like taking a class. Here at C2 Inshore Charters, we encourage you to take notes on what you are learning. If you book the right fishing charter, you will work with someone who wants to share their knowledge with you. This is much better than learning to fish by trial and error.
You Don’t Need to Bring Your Own Gear
Charters and guides will provide you with everything that you need. This includes rods, reels, line, bait, tackle, and any other necessary equipment. Heck, here at C2, if you book one of the longer trips, we even include food! When you are working with the equipment suggested by a professional, you will know what works and what doesn’t. Also, you won’t need to invest in your own equipment, only to find that it doesn’t work and you have wasted your money. Even if you are planning to fish for pleasure and not profit, you still need to know what equipment is best.
You Don’t Need Your Own Boat
Boats can be very expensive. Even if you have the money to buy a boat, you need to worry about where you will store it when it is not in use. You also need to make sure that the boat is clean and the engine is in proper running condition. Finally, you need to pay for gas, a trailer, fish finders, oars, and rod holders. These things can all be very expensive. One of the main reasons that people book charters is to save a substantial amount of money on a boat. There is a reason the old saying goes: BOAT stands for “Bail Out Another Thousand”!
Charters Are Adventures That You Can Enjoy and Share
Fishing on a charter boat can be a great experience. It gives you a chance to get out on the water and catch fish. You can take your friends or family members with you so that they can join in the adventure. If you are bringing along someone who has never been fishing, learning from a pro is the best way to learn. Best of all, guides have the patience to deal with anyone who is struggling to get the hang of it.
Learn New Bodies Of Water To Fish
If you typically fish in the same spots all the time, you should consider booking a charter. There are plenty of places to fish in our area. When a guide takes you out to explore new places, you can come back to these places on your own later. The guide will show you where the drop offs are, how to navigate the water safely, and secret spots that you might not know about.
Take the Pressure Off For a Day
If you want to go out on the water and just catch fish, you should book a charter occasionally. This will give you a chance to sit back and let someone else worry about the rigging and bait. Leaving these responsibilities up to someone else once in a while is a nice change of pace. Think of it as a mini-vacation!
Build a Relationship With Your Guide
If you are hoping to learn the in’s and out’s of fishing, it might take more than one day on a charter boat. Each time you fish with a guide, it will give you a chance to learn from them and build a relationship. If you are serious about becoming a master fisherman, it is important to have a good relationship with your teacher.
Whether you are trying to learn to fish for fun or for profit, the best way is from a guide on a fishing charter. Not only is it a great learning experience, it is also nice to leave the work to someone else once in a while. We would love to see you on one of ours!
