Ok, I've been fishing out of the canoe a bunch lately and hadn't taken the skiff out in 3-4 weeks. Last time I skiffed it I got out of my "prep" routine and made a few bonehead/rookie mistakes, forgetting some key things.

I was so peeved that I decided to resurrect the checklist and update it.

Here's what I got:

-Toilet paper and baby wipes
-Trailer hitch receiver ball mount
-Boat
-Trailer winch wiring harness
-Winch remote
-Harness battery
-Charger
-Spare hub
-Keys to house AND storm shutters AND circuit breaker box AND trailer lock
-Boat plug (not to be confused with Bu….,nevermind)
-Tools
-Cordless drill
-Dremel
-Push Pole
-Dock line
-PFDs
-Flares/Extinguisher/Whistle
-Throw Cushion
-Oil/fuel stab.
-Fuel
-Extra gas cans (for trips to remote areas)
-Syphon
-GPS
-Sunscreen
-Sunglasses
-Hats
-Buffs (www.buffusa.com, not www.buff.com)
-Wade boots
-Crocs
-Fanny pack (I know…ghey, but what else am I gonna carry my shuff in when wading?)
-Fly rods
-Fly reels
-Fishing license (which state? expired?)
-Wallet (make sure wife didn't take all the money out of it)
-Pelican case
-Cell Phone (and charger)
-Tape measure
-Boga
-Fly boxes
-Leader box
-Pliers
-Scissor clamps
-Camera
-Batteries
-Monopod and leash
-(Stringer)
-(Filet knife)
-(Ziplocs)
-(2x8)
-(Ice chest)
-Water
-Anchor
-Drift sock
-Rainsuit/Fleece
-Dry pair of clothes
-"Protection"
-Seat cushions for whiners
-White box to wear over face for photos
-Wine coolers/Malt liquor
-Bobbers
-Sinkers
-Bait
-Kitchen sink

Am I forgetting anything?

You should have your man card pulled for listing the above 2 items. I mean hand it over immediatly, and go think about what you just said.

Your signature says "Bait's for women and children. ", and you still listed the above 2 items, you should be ashamed. :slimer:

LOL. Just yanking your chain. No hate mail please. Pretty cool list.

That's fricking hilarious. "go think about what you just said." Greatness!

At least you guys are starting to read into the sarcasm....

Too early. Knife play starts first then come the chootings!

Why did you ruin a perfectly good pair of underoos to make a fanny pack? You could have been Rey Feyo tonight!!

WHAT KILLS ME IS ISH USES A WINCH TO HAUL UP A BOAT THAT WEIGHS LESS THAN A CHINEESE FEMALE GYMNAST AND HAS TEFLON BUNK RUNNERS TO BOOT. THE SPARE HUB SOUNDS GREAT BUT IF MY WHEEL FALLS OFF (AND IT COULD) I'LL JUST LET THAT AXEL SPARK IT UP, BESIDES I LIKE THOSE TWELVE MILE LONG SCARS YOU SEE RUNNING DOWN THE PAVEMENT, EACH HAS IT'S OWN STORY TO TELL. WINE COOLERS...OK I GUESS IT COULD HAPPEN BUT COOLERS SUCK TRY YEAGERMIESTER, SO YOU REALLY THINK YOU MIGHT RUN INTO JOSE WEJEBE, HE'LL PROBABLY COMMENT ON YOU FANNIE WARE! PELICAN'S ARE PROTECTED YOU KNOW! sEAY CUSHIONS ARE FOR US SENIOR TYPES...NICE TOUCH ISH! wHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU USED A BOBBER, SINKER, AND BAIT WITHOUT YOUR FRIGGIN CROAKER HOOKS...**** YOU GOT TO GET IT RIGHT! KITCHEN SINK...*** ARE YOU JUST KIDDING US...**** DRAKESTERS GO HOME!

tell you what, on friday I'll let you crank it up by hand. (remember, the trailer doesn't go in the water)

didn't you want to make some cracks about cleaning the boat with a pressure washer? or actually cleaning it, period??

That first ten feet up the concrete ramp might be a little tuff, but as soon as I hit those runners...schwing no problem! About cleaning your boat you do an admirable jobl...I even clean my boat after each use although not with a pressure washer...but with that wonderful sulfur infested well water from POC...dissinfects (and kills) everything in sight.

I used to keep my hubs dry, then one day I said screw it. Hundreds of dunkings since then. I take the wheels off every three or four months and coat stuff with the heavy corrosion x, coat all the studs with the blue omc grease, and shoot some grease in the hubs.

I used to dunk too.

Then I blew a hub on Alligator Alley in the Everglades at 9 p.m. one night. I don't like mosquitos.

I also got sick of greasing and cleaning it all the time. Combine that with dragging it several 1000s of miles at a time back and forth from the Keys and LA several times a year, dragging to the middle coast ~ almost every weekend, and down to the lower coast many weekends, keeping it dry is a wiser choice for me...now I don't have to worry about it.

Does the skiff even float after you put all that crapola in it?

Here is my list...

Ice chest with half a bag of ice.
4 bottles of water
Two fly rods
tackle bag (5 lbs max)
boat bag with first aid, radio (5 lbs max)
two life vests

-Trailer winch wiring harness
-Winch remote
-Harness battery
-Charger
-Spare hub
-Keys to house AND storm shutters AND circuit breaker box AND trailer lock

-Tools
-Cordless drill
-Dremel
-Push Pole
-Dock line
-PFDs
-Flares/Extinguisher/Whistle
-Throw Cushion
-Oil/fuel stab.
-Fuel
-Extra gas cans (for trips to remote areas)
-Syphon
-GPS
-Sunscreen
-Sunglasses
-Hats
-Buffs (www.buffusa.com, not www.buff.com)
-Wade boots
-Crocs
-Fanny pack (I know…ghey, but what else am I gonna carry my shuff in when wading?)
-Fly rods

Most of it fits in that "5 lb. boat bag." I pack pretty light on the boat.

(You need more than 2 rod weights for fishing the Keys/backcountry. Shoot, you need more than 2 for POC in the summer...)

Just kidding. That's about what I carry. Except the fanny pack of course. That's just gay. :)
