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 notice how your boat's keel line getting all marred and scarred? When you run over something in the water, or beach the boat, that keel line takes a beating. Sometimes you scar it just from rubbing the boat on the trailer while loading. Don't you wish you could just drive the boat up on a gravel bank or even the concrete boat ramp without damage?

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

Look at the accompanying photo. That white strip of material down the keel line of my big STRATOS is made of some super-tough rubber/nylon combination. It is stuck on the boat with a space-age adhesive compound made by 3M company. That keel guard is now over 6 months old. I beach the boat onto a gravel shoreline about 4-5 times a week. Not only is the boat still perfect, the keel guard material doesn't even show any wear. There are three manufacturers of these products that I know of. One is very costly and has to be installed by a dealer. The other two are in both the Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas catalogs. Each will cost you a little over $100, with the price varying by the size/length you need.

You can easily install the guard yourself. Just take your time and follow the accompanying instructions to the letter. The critical step is to clean the hull line well before applying the adhesive.

It is my opinion that ALL boats should come with these guards as standard equipment. The device is that valuable. Next to safety gear, it is the best accessory you can buy.

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
