Tips for RV Fishing Trips
Motorhomes are a great way to pursue a variety of outdoor hobbies. You can just pack up everything you need and hit the road, whether that’s to go hiking, sightseeing, or even fishing. Traveling by RV means that you can take more equipment and other essentials with you, or even some luxuries to make your trip even better. You can even make it a fishing weekend, or longer, without having to worry about finding accommodation.
If you’re planning on taking a fishing trip in your RV, then read on for some tips to help you out.
Packing fishing equipment and accessories
Of course, one of the essential tasks is making sure you have all the fishing equipment that you need. Whether you’re a regular fisher or this is your first trip, you’ll need to have the correct fishing equipment and bait for the area and type of fish you will be going after. You’ll want to make sure that your equipment is stored securely so that it won’t become damaged on the trip.
You can buy bags or other storage equipment specifically designed for fishing rods, helping to take up as little space as possible in your RV while also keeping the rods safe. Do some research into the location you’re visiting. If there’s somewhere suitable for buying bait and tackle while you’re out there, then you may be able to save some space on your journey.
Preparing your RV for the trip
Like with any RV trip, you’ll want to make sure that your RV is properly maintained for your fishing trip. Any vehicular problems or maintenance issues with your plumbing and other onboard amenities can but a dampener on the trip. As well as ensuring your RV is properly maintained, ensure that you have all the accessories you need for a safe and comfortable trip, including windshield shades for while you’re docked.
What to do with your catch
Being able to refrigerate or freeze your catch in your RV on your fishing trip is one of the many upsides of RVing compared to traditional camping. Make sure your refrigerator and freezer are properly maintained and in good working order so that you don’t have to rely on a cooler. You then have the option of cooking up your fresh catch and eating it on your trip. Simply refrigerate the fish and cook it fresh using the RV’s kitchen equipment. Or bring along an outdoor grill for a great outdoor cooking experience, which will also help to keep the fish smell out of your RV.
