If you are up North and starting the process of winterizing your boat, don’t forget to pull off the prop and inspect it. Starting out the spring with a poor functioning engine caused by unforeseen fishing line wound around the prop is less than an ideal start to the boating season. If you live in the South and continue to sport fish, every time is a good time to check the prop for tangled fishing line. This short video clip from Ship Shape TV shows a quick and easy way to remove fishing line and inspect the prop.
If you live in one of the Southern and warmer states, it’s still cold and windy as Jonas plows its way through the upper East Coast.That said, if you still need to catch your fishing itch, check out the calmer and warmer shelters of residential canals. Depending on where you live, some of you may find a very pleasant surprise. The residential canals offer protection from the cold north winds, and the dock structures create a great place for game fish to hide and ambush prey. Look for canals with a firm sandy or dark mud bottom – they can produce the best place for fish to hang out, especially if the tide is moving. The offshore bites should pick up again as the winds die down and the surface air warms. If you plan to save your catch for a few nice meals – we suggest having a Taco Marine adjustable filet table. The table fits into any rod holder and the mount locks at any angle. This FDA approved table conveniently folds flat for storage. Stay warm and catch lots of fish!
The Liquid Fire Fishing Team started off catching some bait on Wednesday and then pre-fished on Thursday. Heading out Friday morning to catch more bait, they never expected to catch the 51.82 King by 7:45 a.m. on Day 1. They also had one of their best tournament days in North Carolina, catching 14 fish throughout the day in an effort to upgrade their early morning catch.
There was still the possibility that their King could be beaten on Day-2, so they headed out Saturday morning, knowing they had to continue fishing hard to try and upgrade their fish to stay in first place. There are always bigger fish out there, so it was a long day of fishing not knowing if their fish would hold up against the other fishing teams. But by the end of the final day, Liquid Fire came away with first place and a check for $73,435 for their 51.82 lb. King! Taco Marinecongratulates the Liquid Fire Fishing Team on their big win!
This is funny but also dangerous at the same time.How would you have done things differently had you been on this fishing boat? (Note the fisherman swimming back to the boat in the background). We want to hear your tips and suggestions for these fishermen, so please comment below, thanks!

The state of Florida wants to make it’s easier for families to enjoy the world-class fishing our state has to offer.Florida is the fishing capital of the world and one of the many reasons they welcomed a record 98.9 million visitors to the Sunshine State last year.

Lots of small fish in a very big pond: The total annual impact the boating industry has on the U.S. economy is $121.5 billion with 650,014 direct and indirect jobs. Plus, 95% of boats sold in the U.S. are made in the USA, and 95% of the boats are small, 26 feet or less. That said, may the power of boating be with you!
