For beginners, our gracious staff at Broadwater accommodation holiday apartments have compiled a few fun and simple start-up tips:
Like any other sport or hobby that you plan to engage into, it is always best do some research or better yet ask some experts opinions before you decide to head on out to the bay.
If you plan to set out on your own fishing adventure, first take a quick trip at the friendly fishing gear stores or sporting goods outlet and buy some of the basics fishing equipments. Most fishing hobbyists recommend newbies to use lightweight 6-8 ft graphite pole with reels.
We also advise our guests who are planning to go on a fishing trip to bring along their tackle box which includes extra line and hook, pliers, file, knife, lighter and of course colourful artificial lures.
Like most outdoor activities it is best that to carry around a first aid kit and emergency medicines. If you plan to fishing on the daytime, bring along a bottle of sunscreen and a hat. You can also take with you an ice bucket to keep your catch fresh.
