BETTER BEHAVED. The NDG&F issued about 100 less citations last year, including just 48 criminal trespass tickets (down from 59 in 2017). Some of the most common included not having a license, over the limit for fish and failure to have the required number of life jackets in a boat.
TIGHT. Have a waterproof container for all your adventures, where you can stash matches, kindling and other items to help start an emergency fire. Combination tools with a compass, whistle and other features up your odds in an emergency and are easily placed in a tackle box or vest pouch.
UNDERWAY. If you’re already thinking spring, the Bassmaster series is underway, with the “Granddaddy of ‘Em All” – the Bassmaster Classic – scheduled for mid-March. Check out what’s ahead and how the season has started so far at bassmaster.com.
