Get in a few days of practice
One of the more important things you can do when readying for a spring fishing charter is get a few days of practice in on the water. Since you haven’t fished since last fall, you may be a little rusty.
Getting practice at a nearby body of water will get you back into the swing of things and will also ensure that your pole and gear are “de-winterized” and ready to be used on your trip.
Go a few weeks into the spring
While you may be tempted to go out on the water on one of the first few weeks of spring, it is suggested to wait a bit, as the water is still pretty cold.
Take some time for the temperatures to rise to where it will be warm enough for the fish to start coming out. If you go out too early you will more than likely be spending your trip waiting around for a fish to bite.
Head out in the afternoon
As mentioned above, it is important to go out when the water is at its warmest. Waters in the spring are typically warmer in the afternoon or early evening, making it the perfect time to head out on your charter.
While the captain of your charter should undoubtedly be aware of this, it is important to make sure you are given the opportunity to fish at peak times of the day.
