CHECK IT OUT. Checklists help ensure everything is done properly – for hunting, for boating and for fishing. Make a small, pocket sized list and print it out, laminate it and attach it to boat keys or put it in the console of your truck and check every “to do” off the list before leaving the house, or when trailering a watercraft.
PEG ‘EM. A pegboard is a great way to store backup baits and other fishing items. Whether metal, plastic or composite, the various hooks, pegs and arms are perfect places to put bags of soft plastics, unopened crankbaits, and even larger lures like muskie offerings. With a few simple screws, you can have an organizational center in no time.
COLOR CODE. For waterfowl decoy trailers, or any other lock system, color code keys to the locks with a permanent marker set and plastic rings. That way each lock is quickly opened and only a little light is needed to get things done.
Stay Organized. Stay Sharp.
