MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- It is time to start thinking about restocking tackle boxes in preparation for upcoming season.
And Kevin Van Dam says "It is never too late to shop the bargains but
do not overlook your terminal tackle that often gets depleted throughout the year.
Perhaps the most overlooked item is your sinkers and weights."

- Now is a good time to inspect, clean or repair your fishing gear and evaluate your boat needs.
* Do not use tap water in your boat batteries as it contains chlorine, iron or salt that
will harm the battery. Use distilled or de-ionized water and do not put anything else
into it, just keep it full, keep it clean and keep it fully charged..
Here are Some Tips to help you
Get Ready For Spring.
By doing these things now, you will be ready to Go Fishing as soon as the weather breaks.

** Support our local Bait Shops to assure they will be there when we need them for fresh,
lively baits and current fishing info or advice as well as the latest tackle..!
  - Just a Thought..   Get Out and ENJOY..!
