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.

I keep a few half roles of 3m 33 electrical tape on board...it will stick to anything and i use it for everything.


The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?

All of the above are very good ideas. Got to add the umbrella and I will be up with the group.

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!
