OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Ever seen a boat lying in the middle of the road after sliding off a trailer. Tipster sure has. The front winch ratchet broke and there were no other tie-downs in use. Most big old heavy bass rigs would not actually come off the trailer, due to their weight. However, there is always a chance.

Another real pain is when you need that spare tire mounted on the trailer, and the lock is so full of road crude and corrosion that the key won't go in. And, even if the key does go in, the lock won't open.

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with a couple of solutions.

Look at the accompanying photo. See that safety cable on the tie-down eye? It is a piece of cable coated with plastic and has a spring-loaded clip on the end. It is a good safety feature.

Now, look down at the spare tire. There is one thing you CAN see and one you CAN'T. What you can see is the covering over the face of that lock. I use a small, thick plastic bag and some fiberglass tape. Duct tape works, too. Keeps the lock clean and free of crud, you betcha'. What you can't see is that the chain around the spare tire also has a thick plastic tie wrap through a link and the trailer frame. That keeps the chain from sliding around and the heavy lock winding up on the underside of the tire. Keeping the lock topside keeps it out of the main flow of the mud and other road crud.
