Finding The Perfect Destination for Your Fishing Trip

One thing Is Finding The Perfect Destination for Your Fishing Trip

One thing I’ve learned when planning a trip any trip is to be clear about what I want. What are my priorities? Do I want a relaxing trip, or one where I try to visit 10 European countries in 7 days? In the case of a fishing trip, am I more interested in a relaxing location or in catching lots of fish? And what is lots 20 fish a day? 20 fish an hour? Just as important, what are the goals of the friends who are going with me? Here are some of the things you want to consider in planning your fishing trip:

What kind of fish do you want to catch?

Make sure everyone in your group is on the same wavelength. Obviously, the type of fish is going to dictate the general area where you’ll go. For instance, a northern lake might be great for walleye and northern pike, but bad for bass.

Does size matter?

Some anglers are more interested in quantity lots of fish, at any size while others are interested in catching the big one. What’s important to the people on your trip? Some locations can cater to both interests, while others are better suited to one or the other.

What’s your style?

Do you like to drift? Or troll? Fish in deep water, or streams? This is probably a no-brainer make sure that the location you choose has what you need in order to fish the way you want to fish.

What’s your budget?

And more importantly how much do you like roughing it? Some people choose to camp and cook over a campfire because that’s what they want to do, regardless of the price. On the other hand, there are anglers who would prefer to stay in an upscale fishing lodge but end up in a tent anyway because that’s what they can afford.

Be sure to check with everyone involved. Whats comfortable and affordable for one person will not necessarily work for another.

Other things that affect the price are the length of the trip, what kind of fish you’re interested in, and how far you have to go. Driving an hour or two to a buddys cabin for a weekend costs a lot less than flying to Alaska to fish on the Kenai peninsula for a week.

Consider what you want out of your vacation, what the others in your group want, and how much each of you can afford. Then plan the perfect trip to meet all your needs. Happy fishing!
