Fishing During The Hot Summer In Marco Island

fishing-reelsSummer is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities especially involving the beaches. However, when doing outdoor activities during summer time, make sure that you are prepared for the hot weather.

If you are visiting Marco Island and other beach areas in Southwest Florida and want to go fishing, make sure that you go prepared for the hot weather. This is because weather in this region is relatively hotter with high humidity and hot water temperatures.

From dawn, the weather starts great with the cool overnight temperature still lingering until the morning hours. This is the perfect time to go jogging, walking, and other outdoor exercise routines. However, by mid-morning, temperature increases rapidly from hot to super-hot. Most people in Marco Island during this time already go indoors to find comfort from air-conditioning units from their homes and various establishments.

You are lucky if you are within a short distance from an air-conditioned indoor area. However, the situation might be more difficult if you choose to go outdoors during these times of the day. During the night, water temperatures have already absorbed the heat and it extends during the day from tolerably hot to extremely hot. Mid to late-morning swim is definitely not a recommended thing. If you go fishing, you are still not safe from this very hot weather especially if you are using a small boat with no shade or canopy. Even with a shade on the boat, the hot temperature can still affect your body temperature and make you feel uncomfortable.

According to one owner of a charter fishing business in Marco Island, he experienced this kind of problem one time when he took a family vacationing on the island for fishing.

The family, which includes a mother, a father, 2 teenage daughters and a younger son, has already been to Marco Island before and already knows that the weather can be really hot in the island during summer time. However, it is their first time to go fishing.

At first, the kids enjoyed the trip and also enjoyed the fishing activities since they left the marina quite early so they were still able to enjoy the cold breeze. However, by mid-morning, the temperature already became really hot, causing discomfort to the kids. Add to that are the clothes of the kids, which were obviously only meant to protect them from sun rays but not from the extremely hot temperature.

When going fishing under the hot weather, make sure to wear comfortable and appropriate clothes with lots of vents to stimulate proper air circulation inside. Make sure that the material can also wick up moisture and can dry quickly. Put enough sunscreen and as much as possible, use boats with proper covering.
