I still have to put the line on my reels, but that shouldn't take long right?  I mean, how many rods and reels can one person have anyway?

I did get new batteries and got them installed last night, so that was one more thing off the list.  However, when I got my boat out of storage, I found my ground wire for my trailer lights broke, so I have to fix that. 

Oh and I realized a week ago that instead of buying rod covers to keep my rods untangled in the rod locker, I could just make my own.  One week later, I only have 3 done have nine to go...Sheesh, it never ends.

I wasnt going to post on here. Figured I had too much to do and nobody cared. It just hit me how late I'm actually running this year. This is my first spring actually having all this stuff to do. Maybe if I post it all here, it will help me get more organized. Here is what I have left to do. Tow vehicle: new brakes and caliper, new exhaust, renew license plates LOL. Thats all before I can even get the boat home. Boat: install new stereo, but and install additional sonar/GPS, clean, buy and install 2 new batteries, get insurance, buy fire extinguisher, get 2 new life jackets, grease trailer bearings. The only thing I'm pretty ok with is actual fishing gear. I still need to get myself a casting rod, and a spinning rod for Veronica, but we could fish with what we have. Spool a couple more reels, and always buy more lures LOL. Oh, and buy all my park and ramp passes. I think I need to start playing the lottery, maybe I can win some money.

I tried making my own rod socks, it was just easier spending $4 for BPS ones. They work pretty good in a cramped rod box.
