Be aware of fishing licence requirements and how to get a fishing licence for Canadians and non-residents of Canada. Make sure everyone in your group carries the appropriate fishing licence.
If you are fishing for longer than one day you will have to purchase an Outdoors Card.
Appropriate Clothing for the Weather
Wear polarized sunglasses. Since sun rays are much brighter on the lake, polarized sunglasses can help to reduce the bright reflection.
Wear a hat, sunscreen or long sleeve shirt and bring plenty of bottled water to hydrate on hot days.
Wear soft sole shoes, not boots. Many charters prefer that all guests wear closed toes shoes for additional safety on board the boat. Please confirm, prior to your day of departure, any rules, or recommendations the charter boat may have for proper footwear.
Food, Beverages, Supplies and Accessories
Most charter boats do not supply food, but check with your captain or guide to see what is supplied and what you are allowed to bring on board. Pack your food and beverages in a cooler to keep them fresh while you fish. Bring a second cooler for your fish and a few large ziplock bags if you are planning on bringing your catch home.
Bring motion sickness medication as a precaution.
Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture special moments, like your big catch!
