Take a piece of pipe insulation and wrap it around any bar on your boat. Wire tie it in place and you have a great place to hook lures and other rigs for quick access.

Check your boat's VHF, if it is DSC compatible register for you free Maritime Mobile Service Identity number. Your MMSI is a unique number that registers boat and owner information in the U.S. Coast Guard's national distress database for use in emergency situations. Your MMSI number is transmitted when you make a distress call. For more information...

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.

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.

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.

If you rig with stingers try this to allow for various sizes of bait fish. Tie or crimp your stinger hook to the line. Next put a crimp at the beginning of the expected size range. Slip your hook on and then put a crimp at the end of the range. Your front hook can move between the two crimps to fit the bait.

When site fishing, trolling, or just moving around in a boat try to keep the sun to your back. The glare from the sun will make it extremely difficult to see fish if you don't.

If you are planning to release a fish handle it as little as possible. Fish have a slime coating that protects them from disease, human contact can remove the slime and leave the fish vulnerable. Wetting your hands or wearing gloves also helps.
