Don't know about everyone else but there is quite a bit that goes into preppin for a trip on the water. 1st.. Gotta look at the tide charts. I wanna be in certain places at certain points in the tide. 2nd... Bait. Get what I want out of the freezer the afternoon before we are goin. That way its ready to rock when ya hit the water. 3rd.. Make sure your batteries are up to snuff. I hate drama. LOL! 4th.. Make sure my gear is ready. That means no nics in the line,knots are good and the hook is so sharp it will cut ya if ya look at it too long. LOL! 5th.. Food is ready the day before. Drinks are in the cooler and the camera is charged up and ready. Seeins how I have issues and they are many this may seem like a bit of overkill. LOL! All I know is that when I hit the water its on. I have put a float plan together as to where I'm gonna be and at what time. The other thing is if I tell ya to be at my house at 5:00 am, that means 5am. Not 5:15. I'm leavin with out ya. LOL! Hit the WAWA for 4 bags of ice 3 for the food and one for the bait. If you have any ideas as to where ya may wanna go I'll take ya there and waste time. LOL! I take folks out on my boat to put them on fish. So "SHUT UP" and fish. LOL! Dam I enjoy the hell oughta what I do. LOL!
