So what are some inexpensive must haves on the boat. Mine are these "jig savers. Since I have made a few with the barrel swivel and purchased the Water Gremlin snap on sinkers my recovery rate is about 90%. If you use braid and a barrel swivel with fluorocarbon the larger snaps will slide over the barrel swivel. I feel that it doesn't disturb the brush pile nearly as much as pulling on a jig trying to pull the hook or breaking it completely off. I use both 1/2 and 3/4 oz. There have been times when I have had to drop two weights in order to save a jig. Yes there are times when no matter what you do the jig just doesn't come lose and you have to break the whole rig.

Good stuff everybody. Along with the extra fuses, extra relays have come in handy as well.

A telescoping boat hook can be handier than a shirt pocket!
