The weekend is approaching, you and your friends are thinking of how and where to spend it. If everyone from the group is feeling more adventurous than the usual then you can go ahead and plan for a fishing and camping trip.

Choose a specific location- start looking up for a good fishing a camping spot. Usually a fishing site near a lake is a good option. Try to get as much details as possible to avoid roadblocks. Ask if there is a need to secure a fishing license because some areas and states do require that. Also research on what are the kind of fishes that you will most likely be able to catch on the fishing site. Get a map that will come in handy in case your group gets lost on the way.
Prepare your things ahead of time- list down the things that you need to bring on the trip to make sure that you’ve got everything covered. Do not forget to, pack a first aid kit, a few medicines just in case someone would feel under the weather, sunscreen, a couple of fishing shirts, clean towels, mosquito repellents should also be on the list. Basic essentials for the trip such as tents, fishing rods, fishing lines baits, knife, pliers and other handy tools should be packed accordingly.
Wear the appropriate attire- It is important to dress properly for the activity do not forget to wear quality fishing clothes during the trip. The fabric should be lightweight, dri-fit and made of microfiber. It is recommended to pack a couple of pairs that will last for the entire trip.
Get a weather forecast and bring a transistor radio- The weather sometimes can be unpredictable. It’s better to schedule the trip on a sunny day since nobody for sure wants to get caught fishing in a bad weather. Remember to always be prepared.
Bring water and food- If you are planning to go fishing for only a few hours then you probably just bring water and snacks. But if you are planning to go camp out and stay for a couple of days then you might as well consider bringing a portable stove, pans and pots where you can cook your food or grill your catch of the day. Do not forget to bring plates utensils and glasses as well. If you decide to bring disposable utensils then make sure to bring a trash bag and clean as you go.
