Hooked up! You’re on your boat and fighting a trophy while jamming to your favorite station, “Hair Nation,” on Sirius XM. Cinderella’s song, “Don’t Know What You’ve Got (Till it’s Gone)” is playing. Reaching for your pliers, you hear the classic line from the popular tune, and ironically it’s that moment when you realize you are missing your tools.
Nothing will end a day of fishing quicker than leaving your tools behind! When prepping for a trip, every angler knows to bring their fishing rod, reel, hooks/baits, leaders, etc. One would think your pliers, fish grippers, fillet knives, and other angling tools would be a no-brainer. However, we are so used to tools being present that it can be easy to miss when loading the boat! Every angler at one time or another has left their box of favorite baits in the garage, so leaving your tools behind shouldn’t be a surprise.
Let’s take a tour through must-have tools and uses, making them top of mind on your next saltwater adventure. Smith’s Consumer Products professionally design tools for both the seasoned and beginning angler.
