Tips For Cold Weather Fishing

Although many people have started winterizing their boats for the season, there are some boaters who are still cruising the Lake. Fishing is a very popular activity at the Lake of the Ozarks and fall is one of the best seasons to catch a few. However, sometimes the temperatures tend to drop significantly this time of the year. We have been lucky so far, but we can't escape the cold forever. If you are you looking to extend the boating season for as long as possible, Iguana Boat Sales offers a few tips for when the weather starts to really get cold.

1. Layer It Up
Layering is one of the best ways to stay warm while fishing. Each piece of clothing traps a layer of insulating air, which helps you stay warm. In addition, as the temperature or activity level changes, you can shed a layer at a time until you're comfy again. 

2. Put On A Cover
Did you know that we lose a majority of our body heat through our heads? Wearing a hat, especially one that covers your ears, can make a huge difference in keeping you warm while out on the Lake. No matter what type you wear, whether it is a wool hat or a baseball cap, having something on your head will keep you toasty longer. 

3. Check Your Feet
Putting on a thick pair of wool socks sounds like a good idea when it's freezing out, however, make sure you're not squeezing your feet into too tight of boots. If you want to wear thick socks while out on your boat, consider going up a size or size and a half to encourage more circulation and trap more air in the layers of socks. 

4. Keep Fingers Toasty
Although gloves are a great way to keep your hands nice and warm, they tend to keep in the way when boating. While fishing, it is nearly impossible to tie on a lure or hook with big, bulky gloves. Luckily, there are all sorts of lightweight gloves on the market today that make these tasks so much easier. 

5. Block The Wind
Windproof jackets and pants help keep the air from penetrating your layers. The more breathable the fabric, the better, as they let perspiration out, which keeps you warm and dry. 

6. Remember Your ABC's
ABC = Anything But Cotton. When deciding what to wear for your fall fishing excursion, avoid cotton. When you sweat, cotton holds onto the moisture. Synthetic fabrics or wool will wick the moisture away from your body, keeping you warm and dry. 

7. Catch Lots Of Fish
Nothing warms you up quicker than a great day of fishing.
