Deep Sea Fishing: How to Survive the Summer Heat

With the onset of summer comes a rise in temperatures. Despite this, there’s nothing like a Florida summer! Because of the beautiful environment and easy access to the beach, Miami is a perfect spot to spend a summer vacation. If you’re visiting from an area with a mild summer and planning to go marlin fishing in Miami Beach, you’ll want to be prepared for the warmer weather.

Staying hydrated is the first and most important step. On a normal day, you’ll need six eight-ounce servings of water, but when you’re out fishing on the water, you’ll need even more. Confusion, dizziness, dry mouth, and headaches are all indicators of dehydration, and while you may never get dehydrated, understanding the signs can help you avoid significant problems. Caffeine and alcohol is best avoided before and after spending a long day in the sun, as they can dehydrate you.

Any summer activity requires the use of sunscreen. We have more sunny days than usual, so bring plenty of sunscreen! Reapply every two hours, according to experts, and use a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF of at least 15. This will provide you with a better amount of protection against UV rays, which cause sunburn and long-term skin damage.

Protect your body by wearing sunglasses and other light-weight apparel. When going on a Miami deep sea fishing trip, sunglasses will shield your eyes from harmful UV rays while also allowing you to see clearly. Lightweight clothing will keep you cool and allow you to breathe easily throughout the day.

Above all, pay attention to your body and make sure you’re preparing and caring for it appropriately for a day full of sun and fun.
