The Puget Sound is a spectacular place for fishing and promises truly a one-of-a-kind experience every time you’re out on the boat. There’s an abundance of fish within quick distance of downtown Seattle, making a guided tour of Puget Sounds best fishing spots a great way to spend a vacation weekend in the Pacific Northwest.

However, if you’re planning a fishing trip in Seattle, there are a few things you need to bring along in order to be prepared for the elements. When you book your trip with A Spot Tail Salmon Guide, we’ll take care of your fishing gear, bait, tackle, and bottled water (and rain gear upon request), but there are a few things you need to bring along just in case:

– Heavy-duty rain gear (poncho, hat, raincoat, rubber boots, etc.)

– Sunglasses

– Sunscreen

– Thick socks (an extra pair is a good idea) 

– Warm pants or jeans

– T-shirt

– Long-sleeve shirt

– Medium-to-heavy jacket (it gets cold on the boat!)

– Windbreaker

– Waterproof shoes or boots if possible, but not necessary 

– Chapstick

Again, we make every attempt to streamline your fishing experience so you have a memorable time, but it never hurts to be over-prepared. Many people (especially during the summer months) neglect to bring an adequate jacket or coat on the boat and end up being very cold the entire ttip. Plan ahead and dress in layers and you’ll have a great time.

Whether you’re a long-time Seattleite or just planning a trip to town, make a day out on the water part of your trip’s itinerary. A Spot Tail Salmon Guide makes it easy to bring a group along with flat rate fees and eco-tourism for non-fishermen, so the whole family can enjoy the experience.
