    Exclamation Check time !

    Well spring has sprung fish are starting to bite!
    Time to check the new rules and regs and go over your boat stuff to see if anything needs replacing . Things to check are such things but not limited to fire exstiguisers and one to check alot of people forget is, check your anchor rope for weak spots ,first aid kit,are your running lights and anchor light working?? In short go over your boat to keep up with the regs and go over your saftey equiptment as you never know when you might need them or to show ole Ranger Rick your up to regs!! Have a great safe and happy spring and summer !Other things you can think of please add to the list!
    Most of my lures catch more fishermen than fish !!!

    Fishing is God's way of saying he loves us!

    I have an item to add to the list. Make sure your PFDs are in good condition and EVERYONE has one onboard.

    I NEVER lied about the size of the Fish I caught....I just remember them being BIGGER!

    This may or may not be practical for some out there. These are some of the things I carry (besides the required safety equipment);

    Small(60pc SAE/Metric) Socket set
    Wrench set(SAE/Metric)
    Multi tip Screwdriver
    Electrical connector assortment,w/Stripper-crimper
    12,14,16ga wire
    Shearkeys for Jet impeller
    Spare sparkplugs
    Cable ties
    Flashlights
    Visegrips
    Channel Locks
    Drain plugs.
    Self-extinguishing ashtray(for my friends that still smoke)
    Dry towels(in case one of us happen to go in the drink).

    I can fix just about any problem on the water,I hate to be stranded. I've been there before,gas motor down,miles from the ramp and electric power fading fast. Luckily another fisherman stopped to offer a tow back. To this day(after 20yrs) I always stop to offer assistance if I see someone in trouble.

    Don't forget a small tarp. Helps in passing showers and I once "sailed" my pontoon about a mile to a launch site.
