Have you ever actually written down a top 10 list of things you have learned from fishing? Here are mine

1 gas up your vehicular and boat the day before you go fishing and wash your hands a few extra times.
2 don’t use a lot of after shave or cologne before a fishing trip
3 carry an extra life jacket you may save a fishing trip or a life!
4 carry 2 o 3 small plastic trash bags. I was in the Army 1971 -1974 and when you are fishing or in the woods you are required to clean up your area before and after.You could get an Article 15 and cost you cash.
5 double ck safety chains and your hitch
6 carry lots of water and drinks. I don’t drink but in my opinion boating - fishing and alcohol don’t work out very well.
7 ck your drain plug before you launch the boat and carry an extra. Has anyone done this? Yea me too
8 ck your spare tire pressure and if going on a long trip more than 25 miles take 2 spares
9 whenever you stop at a rest area walk around the rig and look it over
10 be more courteous on and off the water. These are my tips sometimes forgotten.

Make sure you have the "wave off the game warden" piece of paper.

Rule 11 don’t bring or invite the guy that always forgets his thing that was supposed to pitch in and now that it’s the 11th trip he forgot to bring anything….
Rule 12 don’t tell him when or where your going tomorrow

I do everyone of them every trip. Yep forgot the plug. Rule 91 NEVER trust anyone else to do your check list. I carry extra plugs tape a few tools fuses connectors short pr of jumper cables. That's about it. Oh n paddle n a boat pole n a anchor. I'd rather have n not need 👍👍

Not very relevant anymore - - Back in the day, it was smart to make sure that you had an extra shear pin or two for the prop. Anyone remember those?

Still have them in my snow blower auger. Beats having a chewed up engine.

Do care one for t-motor. Do carry prop wrench in glastron.
