Fishing rods are permitted in carry-on and checked bags; however, passengers should check with the airline to confirm that the fishing rod fits within the permitted size and weight limits.

What are you not allowed to bring on a cruise ship?

How do you ship a fishing pole?
The fishing rod should be packed for postage. If you have a telescopic or two-piece fishing rod, get it into its shortest form. Wrap separate pieces in bubble wrap individually, paying particular attention to the tip of the rod. Pack the bubble wrap with packing tape to make sure it’s in place. If you don’t have one of these fishing rods, you can make one from a piece of fishing line.
Cut a length of line that is about the same length as your rod and wrap it around the end of a small fishing hook. Make sure the knot is long enough so that it will not slip out of your hand when you are fishing. You can also make your own fishing hooks by cutting lengths of string and wrapping them around fishing lines.
Can you take fishing reels in carry on luggage?
Rods and reels are permitted as checked luggage and are also allowed as carry-on luggage by T.S.A. The only hold-up is that rod tubes can sometimes not meet size requirements set by airline carriers for carry-on items. Make sure you check with your carrier to make sure you can carry a rod tube on the plane.
If you are traveling with a child, make sure that the child is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to travel with their parents or guardians.
How do you travel with a rod and reel?
Pack them in their original case, padded with a few socks or pairs of underwear, or buy a travel reel case for additional protection. If you need to take the trolling reels with you, be sure to put them in a place that will fit in your carry-on luggage.
If you’re traveling with your laptop, you’ll want to keep it in its own case. If you don’t have a laptop bag, consider buying one, but keep in mind that it will take up a lot of space in the overhead compartment of your plane.
Do cruises have metal detectors?
You will go through a metal detector with your friend. The body scans at the airport have caused a lot of controversy, but we have yet to go through a port that has them. As long as it isn’t metal, you can keep things in your pockets. You don’t have to remove belts and suspenders. You will be asked to put your shoes and socks on.
If you are not wearing shoes or socks, we will ask you to take them off and put them in a plastic bag. Once the bag has been inspected, it may be returned to you for a fee of $25.00. Please note that this fee is non-refundable and will not be refunded if your bag is found to be in violation of TSA regulations.
Can I bring full size items on cruise?
You have to personally carry-on any boarding documentation, includingpassports, Visas, I.D, valuables, medications, and any items which require special handling.
Can you check fishing lures on a plane?
While fishing lures seem dangerous and may be flagged, they are allowed in a carry-on as long as they are wrapped well and securely stored. You’re good to go if they aren’t very big and you store them in your carry-on during the flight.
