Before you begin planning a camping or fishing trip it’s a good idea to create and follow a simple but dependable checklist.

Having a camping checklist will help keep you organized while you are packing for your trip as well as help you to not forget anything that you might need while you are vacationing in the wilderness…

Things you might like to take with you while away from home:

  • Lanterns
  • Stove
  • Fuel
  • Life Jackets
  • Tents
  • Sleeping Bags
  • Ice Chest
  • Rope
  • Water Cooler
  • Food (your choice, make sure you bring enough)
  • Snacks
  • Paper Plates
  • Plastic Utensils
  • Paper Towel
  • Toilet Paper
  • Drinks (your choice – not all alcoholic!)
  • Drinking Glasses (preferably unbreakable)
  • Coffee Pot & Fixings
  • Coffee Cups
  • Frying Pan
  • Garbage Bags
  • Rod & Reels
  • Bait (your choice, or whatever the fish might strike)
  • Sharp knife for scaling fish
  • Cutting board
  • Tackle Box
  • Needle-nose Pliers
  • Bobbers
  • Sinkers
  • Fishing line
  • Fishing Hooks of various sizes
  • Insect Repellent (a must!)

And of course if you’re camping anywhere near water – a boat’s a real advantage! It would be best if it’s light, safe and foldable. Hassle-free in setting up. Like this:

Finally there’s a boat that makes sense for me to own!
