Boat rental for Fishing

Fishing is an activity for capturing fish. Fishing is divided into two genres of fishing including traditional fishing and recreational fishing. Traditional fishing is any small-scale, commercial or self-sufficient fishing practice that uses traditional techniques (such as fishing rods and tackle, arrows and spears, throwing nets and trawling, etc.). Recreational fishing and sport fishing are activities more likely for pleasure such as fishing competitions instead of for commercial means. Nowadays, more and more people regard fishing as one of the leisure activities.

What should you keep in mind for fishing?

 

  • License

There are different fishing license in different countries. In France, you do need a fishing rod permit or a license for legal freshwater fishing. Private fishing also requires a fishing license from the landowner.

 

  • Location

There are usually many different fishing spots that are great for fishing. For different season, you have different locations. Asking at your local fishing tackle shop or doing a research online may be the best ways to find this information. To choose a good fishing spot, firstly you must know what fish to catch. For instance, you want to fish for bass, then the best place to fish is shallow bays.

 

  • Weather

Checking out the weather conditions for the day you are going to fishing is a very important point, especially for sea fishing. The factor of weather can decide where to fish and the type of clothes you need to use for the day.  It is always a good idea to check the tide time.

 

  • Patience

Patience is one of the most important factors for fishing. For beginners, fishing is never easy. It requires patience, time, and perseverance, but when you catch a fish, it always pays off. Fishing is a hobby for many people, it can cultivate your patience and teach us how to wait for the return.

 

  • Bait

There are many different forms of bait, from live bait (such as crabs, worms, and sand eels) to bait (such as feathers, spinners, and clamps). Many fishermen swear to use certain baits to catch certain types of fish, such as bass or cod, and certain baits are better than others at different times of the year or cannot be used at all. The choice of bait usually depends on where you are fishing, the types of fish you may catch, and the time of year.

 

  • Safety

For any angler, especially beginners, safety is the most important aspect. Many fishing spots can become very dangerous in bad weather, and even the most experienced anglers are sometimes caught. Always pay attention to tide times, especially if you are fishing in a tidal area that may be cut off. Also try to wear well-fitting clothes/footwear, even in summer fishing on the rocks is dangerous and slippery.

 

 

How much does a rental boat cost to fish?

 

Fishing has become a more and more popular activity in recent years. And there are more people choosing to fish on a boat in a warm day without wind. Renting a boat to fish can perfectly avoid the drawbacks of shore fishing. On a boat, you can have your own space in peace and you do not have the need to search for a good fishing spot in the middle of water. More importantly, fishing on a boat does not cost as much as you may think. If you are interested in going on a boat with your group while fishing in summer on a sailboat, it can cost from 300 euros to 1000 euros depending on the size of the boat in popular holiday destinations in western Europe. On opposite, during off seasons, enjoying sailing meanwhile you can go fishing costs even less from 160 euros to 700 euros on a sailboat.  Don’t forget to book your boat in advance to have available options.
