With just over a month to the tournaments begin it is time to prepare my boat and tackle for tournament fishing. Put balance beam, weigh- in bag, scale etc in boat. Check and or replace oxygen bottle for live well. If you are thinking about adding this system to your boat now is the time. Check trolling motor and Ray motor props for burrs and nicks also fishing line wound up behind them. Condense tackle boxes for seasonal patterns. Respool reels that I will not use until one week before tournament. ( I like to use them to make sure everything works properly ). Check battery connections and water levels as well. Trailer tires and wheel bearings. I also put a 4- way lug wrench in my truck. Trailer lugs are different than truck. Also maybe to help fellow angler if needed. I better get started since I am not fishing this weekend. Good Luck.
