·         Check conditions – before heading out including wind conditions and swells. Visit for up to date reports.

·         Observe first, fish later – identify the best place to safely enter the water and look for where the waves are consistently breaking to ensure you avoid this area when fishing.

·         Wear polarised sunglasses to better identify the reef platforms and breaks before entering the water.

·         Never fish alone – stay in a group and keep an eye out for your friends and other fishers.

·         Wear appropriate clothing or wetsuits. Avoid heavy clothing, including tracksuits and work boots that become water logged and heavy.

·         Don’t panic – if in trouble stay calm and raise one arm and wave from side to side to attract attention.

·         Read the warnings and dangers on any safety signs, do not attempt to fish if you are unsure.
