Fishing Safety

Watch the weather In a storm, seek shelter on shore in a building or vehicle. In an electrical storm, get off the lake and out of your boat. Always follow the golden safety rule of fishing:

When in doubt, wait it out!

Don't abandon ship If your boat gets swamped, stay with it. Most people overestimate their swimming ability. Boats usually stay afloat and drift to shore.

Have a first aid kit Be prepared for cuts, sprains, bites, strains, stings and, yes, embedded hooks (get help from a doctor for those). If you're allergic to insect stings, stock a kit containing epinephrine (adrenaline).

Protect yourself from sunburn Wear a hat and use sunscreen with a sun protection factor rating of at least 15.
