>> WITH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
OF PRIZE MONEY ON THE LINE,
THE FISHING PROS TRAVEL
WITH A LOT OF GEAR.
BUT YOU CAN KEEP THINGS
A LITTLE MORE SIMPLE.
IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO KEEP YOUR
FISHING SUPPLIES IN ONE PLACE
SO YOU CAN JUST GRAB AND GO.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME
BASIC ITEMS YOU'LL NEED
FOR A SUCCESSFUL AND SAFE
FISHING TRIP.
A TACKLE BOX COMES IN HANDY
FOR STORING YOUR HOOKS,
BOBBERS AND SINKERS.
YOU'LL ALSO WANT TO THROW IN
SOME ARTIFICIAL LURES.
WHILE LIVE BAIT IS ALWAYS A
GOOD CHOICE, IT'S A GOOD IDEA
TO HAVE ARTIFICIAL LURES
AS A BACK-UP.
FISHING TACKLE COMES IN ALL
DIFFERENT SIZES AND STYLES
DEPENDING UPON WHAT YOU'RE
FISHING FOR.
YOUR TACKLE DEALER CAN HELP
YOU CHOOSE WHAT YOU'LL NEED
FOR YOUR FISHING TRIP.
>> I WANT TO TAKE THE KIDS
FISHING AND I JUST DON'T
HAVE A CLUE WHAT I NEED.
YOU GOT SOME SUGGESTIONS?
>> I SURE DO.
I'LL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU.
CAN YOU EXCUSE ME JUST
A MINUTE THOUGH?
ANN, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THESE.
>> THANKS!
SOME OTHER ITEMS TO KEEP IN
YOUR TACKLE BOX ARE: A PAIR
OF PLIERS FOR REMOVING HOOKS
FROM THE FISH'S MOUTH OR FOR
MASHING BARBS DOWN ON HOOKS,
A PAIR OF NAIL CLIPPERS OR A
SMALL KNIFE TO CUT LINE WITH.
ANOTHER ITEM TO HAVE ON HAND
IS A SMALL FIRST AID KIT.
IT'S ALSO A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE
A COPY OF TEXAS PARKS
AND WILDLIFE'S FREE OUTDOOR
ANNUAL ESPECIALLY IF YOU PLAN
ON KEEPING YOUR CATCH.
THE OUTDOOR ANNUAL LISTS
FISHING LIMITS AND REGULATIONS.
>> THIS LOOKS LIKE IT'S
16 ½ INCHES.
IN THE STATE OF TEXAS,
YOU CAN TAKE IT HOME!
>> AND, IF YOU PLAN TO KEEP
YOUR CATCH, IT'S A GOOD IDEA
TO HAVE SOMETHING TO MEASURE
YOUR FISH WITH AND AN ICE
CHEST TO STORE YOUR CATCH IN.
OTHER ITEMS TO ALWAYS HAVE ON
HAND ARE BUG REPELLENT,
SUN PROTECTION, HAND SANITIZER,
EXTRA WATER AND A CELL PHONE
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.
IF FISHING FROM A BOAT, YOU'LL
NEED TO HAVE A LIFE JACKET
FOR EACH PERSON ONBOARD.
AND REMEMBER, IF YOU'RE OVER 17
YOU NEED A FISHING LICENSE TO
FISH IN TEXAS - UNLESS YOU'RE
FISHING AT A STATE PARK.
YOU CAN BUY A FISHING LICENSE
AT MOST STORES WHERE
SPORTING GOODS ARE SOLD...
>> HERE'S YOUR FISHING LICENSE.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
>> ...OR ONLINE AT THE TEXAS
PARKS & WILDLIFE WEBSITE.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST,
DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!

>> IT'S PROBABLY BEEN SEVEN
OR EIGHT YEARS SINCE I'VE BEEN
FISHING, YOU KNOW, AND SO FAR
IT'S BEEN PRETTY EASY
TO PICK BACK UP.
AND AT LEAST YOU CAN TALK TO
PEOPLE WHILE YOU'RE DOING IT.
JUST EVERYBODY WALKS BY,
YOU KNOW.
THEY WAVE TO YOU.
THEY SAY HELLO.
AND MAYBE EVERYONE'S FRIENDLY
BECAUSE THEY ALL SMELL LIKE
FISH AT THAT POINT SO YOU KNOW,
TO SEE IF ANYONE STILL
LIKES THEM.
