Default Bummed Out

Yeah We are all bummed out. Fish are out there but we can't go because of weather. To to keep our interest and preparedness I suggeset the following :

Change those nasty looking hooks on our favorite lures

Check the EPIRB batteries. We spent good dollars for these devices, hope never to use them, but should we have to the batteries need to to be good.

Check fire extenguishers dates and pressure

Chech flare expiration dates

Chech back up VHF batteries

Not comprehensive so add your suggesstions.

I myself know that when the weather is good and the bite is on I'm not doing any of the above.

I always like to empty and repack my ditch bag at least once a year. I also update my important boat papers folder on the boat by laminating all my permits, fish lic., insurance binder, Seatow paperwork etc.. and throw out the old permits.

All great suggestions. Since I just retired and finally have some time, I will do all of them. The one thing I had decided to do this year was start posting stuff on this forum. I've been a member since 09, but just never posted, just read everybody else's. Funny, out of that list, the one that I had actually started was re-spooling the 50W. At least bought the line.
