Late last spring was unusually busy at work, and weekends were more a time to try to catch up rather than catch fish. Needless to say when my buddy, Dave, called and asked me if I wanted to run over to Sanibel for a shot at some tarpon or at least a decent day of shark fishing I was all in. The next week and a half I spent dreaming of seeing that flash of silver jumping through the air, cleaning my reels and organizing my tackle. We loaded up the boat and headed out on the water around 5:15am with some frozen bait we were able to pick up when we got in the night before. We made it to Dave’s favorite fishing grounds and found a nice spot to drop anchor. While he was finishing up making sure we were secure I reached into the cooler and pulled out a nice fish to chunk up and asked him where he kept his knife. The next 20 minutes or so were spent digging through compartments trying to locate a knife …..Unsuccessfully.
That is the type of mistake you only make once, then you make sure you have a decent knife with you every time you leave the dock. A simple addition to your boat gives you the ability to keep your important tools within arm’s reach and a quick glance can ensure you have what you need on board for you trip.
