When you’re gearing up for a new fishing adventure, in order to ensure that you have a fun experience, it’s important to pack properly! So here are five things you’ll need to bring with you if you’re planning on fishing out on Lake LBJ this spring!

The Proper Clothing

It’s getting warmer out there, but you might still need to layer your clothing. Bring adequate clothing for the weather conditions, as well as a light, weatherproof jacket. You never know what the sky is going to decide to do!


You already know how important it is to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays. There are several brands of sunscreen on the market, with a wide range of SPF. You can even find sunscreen for sensitive skin! So bring plenty of sunscreen (make sure it’s not expired!) and get ready to have a blast fishing out on the lake!

Insect Repellant

With the warmer weather, come more insects than we’re used to having around in the winter. So don’t forget your trusty insect repellent; it’ll save you so much frustration, and you can actually enjoy yourself while you’re wading through that refreshing water!

Fresh Snacks and Water

Don’t let yourself get dehydrated while you’re out there. Bring plenty of refreshing snacks, like strawberries, bananas, watermelon, or cucumber. And don’t forget to bring plenty of water bottles!

Dry Box

Bring a waterproof box that can hold your wallet, keys, and phone, and boating license. It’ll keep the most important things safe; store it underneath your boat seat if possible! You won’t lose it there.

So whether you’re fishing, swimming, or hiking near Lake LBJ, we hope you have a blast! But above all, stay safe out there; you never know what might happen! Follow your safety guidelines, and if you’re going fishing, gear up wisely!
