Five Reasons to
We’re knee-deep into Fall right now, so you might think that means you need to retire your boat until next summer. Not necessarily. Fall is actually an ideal time to get outside and enjoy a day on the water. The following are five reasons, supplied by the Take Me Fishing campaign, to get out and try your hand at boating or fishing this Fall.
1. Ideal Weather Conditions
Autumn’s weather is ideal for fishing and boating. Temperatures are cooler during the day, meaning that fish are much more active. A first-timer has a huge opportunity to catch a fish in the fall. Fewer boats on the water only helps your chances of landing that huge fish.
2. It’s Easy!
Over 90% of Americans live within one hour of navigable water. That means it’s easy and affordable to hit the water this fall. Whether you’re renting a boat or looking to buy, prices drop as the weather cools down, so you can save money and enjoy the water that is likely in your backyard waiting.
3. Stress Relief
Being near the water is clinically proven to reduce anxiety and help you to be calm. In fact, around 20% of Americans surveyed credit fishing as the reason the feel calm and relaxed.
4. It’s Good for the Environment!
No, really! The more people get out on the open water, the more money is funneled into protecting and conserving America’s natural resources. Fishing and boating give outdoor enthusiasts a way to do their part.
Fishing, canoeing, boating, swimming… they’re all good for your health! Spend an hour on the water and you’ll feel healthier and more relaxed.
