Bring a camera to take snapshots of those big fish you catch or bring a video camera and catch all the action that a South Padre Island Beach fishing trip offers.
Fishing hats to block sunburn
A hat or ball cap is a good idea, especially for you guys that are getting a bit thin on top. Protect your head from the Texas sun's burning rays.
If you get seasick then motion sickness pills would be a very good idea
If you get seasick or aren't sure if you get seasick then it is a very wise idea to take your Dramamine before you leave the dock. Nothing can ruin a fishing trip worse than a guy named "RALPH".
Hat so you won't burn
The South Padre Island Beach fishing region can get very hot during the summer. Make sure you bring sunvareen, especially if you easily burn. If you are burnt up you can't enjoy your South Padre Island Beach charter fishing trip.
