Injuries that can occur when fishing include small hook related injuries up to the serious accidents like drowning. Here are a few things to keep in mind when planning your next fishing trip

  • All Type Of Fishing. We cover ice fishing and deep sea fishing! *
  • The Dangerous Puffer Fish. One Puffer Fish contains enough poison to kill 30 people. Yikes.

  • Let someone know you'll be gone fishing and what time you plan to be back in case something does go wrong.
  • Always be aware and careful around rocks or other dangerous creations of Mother Nature.
  • If you're fishing from a boat wear a lifejacket & always take a first aid kit in case of cuts and small injures.
