It's great to be excited and enthusiastic, but not so great to be ill prepared. There are many local marine shops or on-line provisioning stores to keep you, and your first mates, safe and warm this season. For everything in one bag you may consider the Stansport Emergency Preparedness Kit An ounce of prevention...... you know the rest!
Just a friendly reminder from someone that has rushed and ended up out on the water without bug spray, sunscreen, water, band-aids, etc.
Now, catch those fish!
