Now that the weather is warming up, you’re gearing up to go on your next fishing trip. What better place to get out into the great outdoors than Lake LBJ? On Lake LBJ, you’re guaranteed a fantastic fishing time- but we encourage you to take precaution in the summertime, as temperatures are still rising. So let’s get ready, gear up, and go over a few safety tips for fishing out on the water this summer!

Stay Hydrated

It’s important to drink enough fluids while you’re out there in the burning sun. In a cooler, pack plenty of ice, ice packs, and cold snacks like fruit or blocks of cheese. There’s nothing worse than dehydration when you’re trying to have a great time- and your day could easily be ruined by a heat stroke or something even worse!

Cool Down by Taking Breaks

Take frequent breaks if you need to! Sprinkle yourself with water, or take a (quiet- so you don’t scare off all of the fish) dip into the lake. Float around, dunk yourself under water, do what you need to do to stay cool.

Only Fish in Areas that are Permitted

This one is obvious- but we just want to make sure you stay out of trouble. If the signs says “No Fishing,” turn the boat around, and find a different area.

Follow Boat Safety Guidelines

Lastly, it’s immensely important to follow all boat safety guidelines when you’re out on the water. These include but are not limited to: having the proper life vests available for everyone in the boat, keeping a safe distance away from persons and other water craft, and drinking water- not alcohol. Don’t forget to watch for signs and buoys and obey the limits.

This summer, we hope you dive into a fantastic fishing time on Lake LBJ! But don’t forget- safety always comes first!
