Just because summer is drawing to a close doesn’t mean it’s time to store away the boat for the rest of the year. There are still plenty of fall boating activities that you can do before the snow comes in. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
The perfect time for leaf peeping is when the leaves begin to turn into those brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow. Most people hop into their cars and drive along the country roads to get their view of the changing season. However, you can also hop into your boat to get an equally stunning view. In fact, leaf peeping by boat is often more relaxing, as you won’t have to worry about traffic, and you have more of a chance to sit back and enjoy the scenery.
Another enjoyable and peaceful fall activity is bird watching. Many birds spend the fall migrating south for the winter, so you’ll be able to see a wide range of species right in your own neighborhood. Simply back off the throttle, grab your binoculars, and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Just because the weather is getting colder doesn’t mean that all of the fish are gone. In fact, there are many species of fish that you can find while out on the lake this fall. The fish you will find in fall are typically larger and slower, so keep your bait small if you want to come home with a large catch.
One of the best things about fall is the fall harvest. So, why not enjoy that harvest on your own boat? A small dinner party with your closest friends or family members is a great way to spend some quality time together before the temperatures really start to drop. It can even be as simple as enjoying a pot of chili with your significant other out on the water.
After you’ve spent your day leaf peeping, bird watching, or the like, it’s time to pull your boat into the dock. At V-Dock, we have plenty of roll-in boat docks to suit your needs. Just look through our inventory or give us a call at 1-888-888-DOCK with any questions or concerns.
