Braid be still
on 3/21/2011 • Rank (1279) • Views (1310) •
To prevent braid line from slipping on the reel, first put a short but wide rubber band or two on the reel. Next spool up as usual. The braid will dig into the rubber band and stay put.

Boating bottom blues

If you are new to boating, or just in a new area and worried about hitting bottom, follow a bigger boat. If it stops fast, you stop fast.

If you want to get your live bait to swim lower, cut off the lower half of their tail fin. They will swim down more.
Pilling tie offs
on 3/21/2011 • Rank (1165) • Views (1185) •
To tie off to a pilling in a strong current, start by moving into the current until your bow is just past the pilling. Toss a long rope with a fender tied to the other end well past the pilling and drift back. The fender will carry the rope back. Catch it and tie off.
Down with dredges

If you like to pull a dredge or spreader bar, try attaching it to your down rigger cable. This makes for quick recovery and doesn't tie up a rod holder.
