The weather is certainly cooling off here on Lake LBJ, and the water, too! But that doesn’t stop you from loading up and heading out to catch your biggest fish yet! So we’re here to give you some solid advice on staying warm while you’re out there on the water. Follow these five guidelines and you’ll be good to go!

Wear Insulated Socks and Boots

When you’re fishing, you remain still; you don’t move around much. So it’s easy for your feet to get cold, as we’re sure you know! Insulated socks and boots will greatly help out with this issue. Insulated boots will help keep your feet dry, as well.

Don’t Forget Your Hat and Gloves

Gloves will keep your hands warm and toasty, and a hat will hold in the majority of your body’s heat. It will also protect your ears from wind and mist, which can make you very, very cold!

Hand and Feet Warmers

Hand and feet warmers are wonderful inventions and extremely helpful while out on the chilly water. Stick them inside your shoes and pockets and they’ll help your extremities stay plenty warm!

Pack Protein-Packed Snacks

You must get hungry at some point while out there on the water, no matter what the weather looks like! Protein-packed snacks will not only fill you up in a healthy manner, but they’ll also keep you warm. Simply put, your body produces more heat while digesting food!

Wear a Weather-Proof Jacket

Wear a weather-proof jacket to keep out the wind, rain, mist, or splashing water. In addition to this, it’s also wise to bring along a set of spare clothing just in case something does get wet.

We hope these tips remind you to stay warm while you’re out there on Lake LBJ, having a blast! Stay safe, stay cozy, and happy fishing!
