If you’re an avid angler then you are serious about catching fish. Your success depends on your boat and equipment, keeping both in tip-top shape is important. An on that same note, keeping your insurance current is equally important. Whether you fish just for fun or compete in tournaments, be sure your insurance is what it should be to meet your needs.
Ask your independent insurance agent if your fishing and boating insurance includes the following and discuss what you may or may not need. If you compete in fishing tournaments you will want to ask whether that is included in your policy.
- Damage Coverage
- Disappearing Deductible
- Consequential Damage Clause
- Fishing Equipment
- Protection & Indemnity (P&I)
- Medical Payments
- Tournament Fee Reimbursement
- Towing and Emergency Assistance
- Unlimited Trailering within the continental United States
And remember the importance of safety when you’re boating or fishing. In Texas alone, there are over 250,000 registered boats and the state enforces strict boating and fishing laws. Make sure you and your crew are well informed and well prepared before you leave the shore.
