Weather conditions out at sea can change very quick. The calmest, sunniest day on land with no wind blowing can be quite different a few miles offshore and even when the conditions are perfect it is never guaranteed that it will remain that way for the whole duration of the trip. The Skipper will factor in the likelihood (or not) of changeable conditions when deciding if a trip is good to go.
Be prepared for any eventuality is the motto on any fishing trip and especially wreck fishing trips. Sun protection including sunscreen a hat and a pair of shades are in order for those glorious sunny days or warm and waterproof clothing and footwear in case the weather should get cold and wet.
It is not worth having to spend a day uncomfortable because you didn’t bring the appropriate gear.
Consideration should be given to suitable footwear for the trip. It is most likely that the deck will become wet and so can become slippery. For your own comfort and safety footwear with a rubber sole is the most appropriate. Deck shoes, Trainers or Wellingtons are ideal.
Temperatures at sea can be considerably colder than those onshore. We recommend that you are prepared with plenty of thin layers and good fleece and a waterproof jacket. It is much easier to take a layer or two off than it is to put on an extra layer that you have left at home.
Sunscreen is something you might also want to consider as when the shines hot and the weather is calm you will burn very quickly as the sun reflects off the water all around you. Go home with a nice tan not looking like the last lobster in the pot!
