FLOAT ON.  Spring waters are still chilly, and a quick unintended dip can be disastrous.  Make sure to have a life jacket ON your body this time of year and all open water season.  Like a seat belt, it only works if you use it.

CHECK-IN.  Schedule a check-in time for every trip, letting others know when you’ll be back or calling in to give them the a-okay. Establish a grace period of 30 minutes or so to make up for weak cell coverage or a few extra casts at the end of the outing.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?  Don’t forget to leave at home the directions to the launch or location you’ll be fishing at.  In case of emergency in the outdoors, it’s key for others to have a starting point to go from, in case things head south.
