The Checklist: 10 Essentials to Bring With You on Your Next Fishing Trip


If you're looking for a great way to spend time outdoors, you have plenty of options to choose from. Hiking, biking, swimming, skiing, gardening, metal detecting, and camping are only a few of the options available to people who enjoy the great outdoors. Of course, fishing can't be left out of the mix, either. Quite a few people choose to spend their leisure time waiting for their right fish to come along and take the bait. In fact, more than 850 million fishing expeditions take place each year. Whether you're planning your first fishing trip, booking a fishing charter, or simply getting ready for one of your latest outings, taking along the right equipment is essential.

Getting Geared Up for Your Fishing Adventures

Having the right gear with you is the key to making the most of your angling experiences. Having said that, knowing exactly what to bring isn't always a simple matter. After all, you want to have all the essentials, but you don't want to pack so much gear that you end up being overloaded. Though you can find more details from Johnny's Sport Fishing about certain must-have fishing equipment, we'll go over some of the basics right now.

1) Fishing Rods

This may seem like an all-too-obvious point, but your entire fishing trip experience is going to be centered around the fishing rods you bring. Be sure to have the right rods on hand. Some offer multi-purpose functionality, but others just aren't right for all types of fishing. One of the main factors to consider is the rod's length. Longer rods tend to cast farther, but shorter rods often give you more control over where your line goes.

Weight, power, and action also factor into the equation when deciding which rods to take with you on a fishing trip. You'll learn more about those elements over time, and more experienced anglers can help you understand why they're important. Eventually, you'll instinctively know which rod will work best for your plans. At the same time, it's important to remember to bring more than one rod. If one break or the line gets hopelessly tangled up in the reel and you don't have a backup, you'll have to pack up and call it a day much earlier than you expected.

About Mom: Mega Prime and Prime Mom Club host a well-deserved Relaxation Workshop for Moms

If there’s anyone who deserves some overdue pampering, it will have to be the mothers of this world. Day in and day out, pandemic or not, moms are always juggling a thousand and one responsibilities, all for the sake of their families and loved ones.

To thank all moms for their tireless efforts, Mega Prime and the Prime Mom Club have organized a one-of-a-kind virtual glamping event that allowed moms to relax and bond with fellow moms. The session, entitled All About Mom, pampered moms by giving them some me-time to relax while learning alongside their peers who share their cares and interests.

Different from the past Prime Mom Club workshops, a virtual glamping session, the perfect relaxation hotspot for our Prime Moms was created. As a way to connect with one another while also reminding our moms that it's important to care for themselves, guests were encouraged to interact with all that was in store for them. They had a blast with trivia games and other interactive game booths, as well as learning home tablescape styling hosted by Pinky Tobiano topped off with a cooking segment using Mega Prime Oyster Sauce and Canned Fruits. The online event was attended by members of the Prime Mom Club, Mega Prime’s exclusive club for moms who want to continuously elevate their homemaking skills.


Leading the event was the Prime Mom Club’s honorary member and Mega Prime’s brand ambassador, Marian Rivera Dantes, who spoke about the importance of bonding with fellow moms through shared passions such as cooking, which are good for one’s well being especially during this pandemic.

Chef Rosebud Benitez unveiled special recipes using Mega Prime Choices Oyster Sauce. She also whipped up scrumptious desserts using Mega Prime’s Canned Fruits. Together with Mommy Connh Cruz, the winner of The Search for the Next Prime Mom, both of them participated in an online cook-off and shared some practical cooking tips and ideas.

“Mega Prime deeply appreciates the efforts that all moms extend for their families and loved ones. We wanted to celebrate them and thank them for everything that they tirelessly do through Prime Mom Club. This shows our commitment to empowering moms, not just through cooking workshops but also through events that focus on their overall well-being. We hope to have more of these events for Prime Mom Club members in the near future,” said Marvin Tiu Lim, Mega Global Chief Growth and Development Officer.

The Prime Mom Club has been an avenue for moms to improve their skills as homemakers. Combining information and education with interactive and engaging events, Prime Moms are given exclusive access to enriching activities featuring experts and celebrities to guide them.
