There is no additional charge for fishing equipment on JetBlue flights; however, one item of fishing equipment will count as one of your checked bags. All regular checked baggage fees may apply, but the oversized fee will be waived. Fishing poles are exempt from the standard size requirements (62") but should still follow weight and other equipment guidelines.

One item of fishing equipment is considered:
Two rods
One reel
One landing net
One pair of fishing boots (properly encased)
One fishing tackle box [AMZ asins='B000E3E22A,B008BR23FY,B00YEH5PQO,B00SXZMQTM']

Please note: all equipment should be packed in a hard-sided container

Fishing poles are allowed as carry-on baggage provided they fit in the overhead compartment. Small hooks for fly fishing or fresh water hooks are acceptable as allowed by TSA (Transportation Security Administration). Deep sea fishing hooks are permitted in checked bags only.

Spear Guns on JetBlue Flights
Spear Guns must be in a hard-sided container or with the tip of the spear protected to prevent damage and must be within the size and weight guidelines, or excess fees would apply.

JetBlue does not allow compressed gas cylinders. If the gas cylinder cannot be removed from the spear gun, it will not be allowed.
