Daily Edge for Fri. Apr. 12

A BOATLOAD.  While SD and MN got socked with heavy snow, ND was mostly spared, though the accumulations and wind were enough to shut down the eastern edge of the state.  The system wraps up today, and the melt will be on (again) next week – and then boating season will be here.  We get you set with more prep tips for your fishing craft in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

CHARGE!  Check to see that boat batteries are in good shape and holding a charge for all of your electronics, trolling and starting needs this spring.  If they aren’t, consider replacing them to ensure power all summer.

ROPE & BUMPER. Inspect landing gear like ropes and bumpers, and make sure that there are enough to brace your boat on a dock, and that tie off ropes are in good shape to hold your craft in place temporarily (or overnight) depending on your destination.

LIGHT IT UP. Confirm lights are in working order and that bow and stern illumination meets the requirements on your waters for early or late travel.  Check interior lights as well and replace any broken or burned out bulbs for the best sight at night.

 

 

Stay Sharp!
