Fishing Opener: Think Boating Safety

Comments Off

It’s the Fishing Opener tomorrow. It’s time to remember to be safe out on the water. In the past, I looked at the issues with the increase in drinking while boating charges. Hopefully, we won’t see another year of increased numbers.

Some ideas to keep in mind:

  • Children in Minnesota 10 and under have to wear a life jacket at all times. And federal law for federal waters it’s 12 and under.
  • Make sure everything is in working order before you go out to far.
  • The captain is responsible for the crew and cannot be over the legal limit.
  • Always check the weather
  • Do not drive your boat at excessive or unsafe speed.
  • Make sure to be aware of other boats on the water, but don’t forget about water skiers, tubers, jet skiers, and wave runners.

Hopefully, it’s a fun and happy day for everyone.
