What do i need for my fishing trip?

Everyone who plans on fishing MUST purchase an Ohio Fishing License, ideally before your trip. Most packages don’t include food or drinks, so you may want to pack snacks or lunch accordingly. While all fishing equipment is included, you’ll need to bring your own hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Soft sole shoes are best for a day on the lake, and be sure to bring rain gear, just in case.
