It’s so easy to get ready for this trip. Since the crew covers your fishing license, full equipment, food, drinks, and catch cleaning service, you basically only need to show up. Bring your camera and keep those memories alive. Don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen, to make fishing more enjoyable.
