MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.

- What To Do If Your Outboard Won´t Start - Check these
BoatUS Troubleshooting Tips.
The 1st 10 or 11 are common & familiar, but others are technical.
Sometimes it is just the emergency shutoff switch cap is out..

* Be Courteous at the ramp, be prepared before getting in line.
Before launching at the Ramp: Check to make sure the drain plug is in your boat.
When backing the trailer, Use your mirrors, put your hand on the bottom
of the steering wheel and move it in the direction you want your trailer to go.
A good rule of thumb at the ramp, is to back the trailer into the water until
the rear of the trailer is at or about in the water for bunk trailers.
If you have a roller trailers, go until the rear roller is in the water.
Now you can un-hook the winch strap from bow-eye and back down till boat floats off.

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.
