One of the best and most unforgettable ways to spend your holiday is to book with a yacht charter company in Singapore and go on a sailing adventure. There are a lot of places to visit when you choose to go on a yachting trip to the southern part of the country. You can go swimming, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkelling, and other fun water activities. Aside from that, you can also enjoy exciting activities onboard, including karaoke, card games, and more.
To take your yachting excursion up a notch, you can try fishing. If you book with Valencia Yachts, we’ll take you to St. John’s and Lazarus Islands, two islands in the southern part of Singapore marked for recreational activities. These islands are incredibly rich in natural flora and fauna and are teeming with different fish species.
Here are a few fun tips to help ensure that you’ll genuinely enjoy your fishing escapade.
1. Bring the right gear
If you want to include fishing in your itinerary, you need to make sure that you have the necessary equipment with you to have a smooth and enjoyable experience. You will need a fishing rod, reel, monofilament fishing line, hooks, plastic or cork bobber, fishing weights, and lures or baits.
2. Understand basic techniques
Aside from knowing proper yacht etiquette – to ensure that you’re always safe on the boat – you’ll also need to know some basic fishing techniques. These include putting the bait on hooks, tying knots, casting the line, etc. You can watch videos online to get a good idea of how to fish correctly. You can also practice before going on a sailing adventure on board a private luxury yacht charter.
3. Check the weather
You want to go fishing with overcast skies as it is the perfect weather for such an activity. While there are species that bite the bait in other weather conditions, most tend to do so in cloudy weather only.
4. Invite family and friends
Fishing would be more fun when done with people close to you. This is especially true if it’s your first time doing it. You and your companions will definitely have loads of laughter trying to catch a fish for the first time. Plus, you get to share laughter and a one-of-a-kind experience that you and your family or friends will remember for a long time.
5. Dress appropriately
Dressing comfortably is a must. If you are in the water to go fishing, you’ll need to wear boots to protect your feet. It’s also best to wear a few layers of clothing since the weather can change so suddenly, and it can get cold really quickly. It would help if you got yourself a pair of polarised sunglasses to prevent eye strain and a hat or cap.
At Valencia Yachts, we will take you to different islands on the southern coasts of Singapore, where you can enjoy various water activities, including fishing.
