    And I forgot my Knife .Well My buddie pulled the achor an I had a snag.My 100# line would not break.And the boat was floating down stream.My pole allmost came out of my hands.But my buddy gave me his lighter.An I burnt the string.We almost flip the boat an lost my pole.But if I had My KNIFE Icould have cut the line.:roll_eyes:
    That scary situation could had been prevented.:crazy:

So we castnetted some shad and headed home.....IDIOT

    Spare anchor
    prop
    plug for boat
    gloves
    sunblock
    tire for trailer, or tow rig for that matter
    tools....especially if you drive a ford....lol.
    enough lifejackets
    spark plugs for boat & ford
    Most things can be improvised if needed, the one exception for that however is clean underwear. That would be a trip to walmart for sure...lol. Good luck

    Put me down for:
    - Landing Net
    - Cast Net
    - Lantern
    - Bait (well, it was actually stolen by a four-legged cat, but it should still count, right?)

    I'm sure there's more, but I umm.... forget.

    Don't forget the bait, hooks, and rods! The most important thing to take on your trip is your credit card! Planty of baitshops, Wal-Marts around to fill your emergency needs:cool2:.

    Good luck, LW! Catch some Gorilla Blues!

    Well I got to come in now. Don't forget your bait bucket.

    Went to Dillon today to get some some shad. My brother and I grabbed the rods and the fishing bags. Asked the Ol'Lady to grab the bait bucket on the way out. Get to Dillon and guess what? Yep, you guessed it. No bait bucket.

    A lot of good stuff on here, but you all are forgetting something HUGE when it comes to forgetting things... your fishing license, especially if you go out of state, it's not that big a deal, until you realize you don't have it the one time an officer stops you, cause then you have to talk your way out of trouble that easily could have been avoided.... me as soon as I get to the edge of the water I check, before I put out a line (and after I've checked a few times before), I check, got myself into that habit and it's one I think I'll keep. Aside from that, well.... I'm not the one to ask, I've had to do some unique redneck improv on well more than one occasion. :wink:
