How to Beat the Summer Heat
On the Alabama Gulf Coast there is no off-season for the avid angler. But there is one season that is more challenging than the others.
Summer, beautiful summer – a fun time for playing at the beach and in a pool, but not so much fun for fishing. Even the fish head to the cooler, deeper water in the heat of the day. How do you beat the heat of summer to enjoy your fishing time? We have some suggestions to keep your hook in the water and fish on your plate.
Even most of the cheap sunglasses today will protect your eyes from the sun's dangerous UV rays. Polarized lenses will cut down on glare in the water. A lanyard is also a good idea to keep them from going overboard.
Wear a hat or other head protection
Wide-brim hats will protect your ears, face and neck. Even a baseball cap will offer needed protection for your face.
Wear and carry proper clothing
Protecting your skin is important. You may start off with short sleeves and shorts, but having a long-sleeve shirt and even a pair of pants is a good idea if you plan to be in the sun all day. Some sportswear name brands offer clothing with sun protection.
