You can never have sufficient lures. But that is not really all you will need on the water. Pack these items to make your trip a lot more productive.
1. Flashlight: It’s handy whenever you’re out after dark, important if you are stranded and need to signal for help.
2. Adjustable Wrench: This has a wide range of uses, from opening reel covers to tightening trolling-motor bolts.
3. Split-Ring Pliers: They open up split rings and permit you to replace hooks speedily and simply.
4. Lure Dye: With Spike-It lure dye, it is possible to change a lure’s hue in seconds ($4.50 per bottle; 912-842-2653; ispikeit.com).
5. First-Aid Supplies: Do not let a minor injury ruin your day. In case you bury a hook in your hand, as an example, some simple supplies will let you take care of the dilemma on the water—and keep fishing.
6. Spare Treble Hooks: Hooks typically become dull or damaged when worked over rocks and gravel.
7. Spare Rod Suggestions: If you’ve never snapped off a rod tip, you’ll.
8. Glue Stick and Lighter: Use these to affix a new rod tip. Heat the glue stick with the lighter, apply the glue, then slide to the new tip.
