6 Fishing Hacks Sure To Impress Dad This Fathers Day6 Fishing Hacks Sure To Impress Dad This Fathers Day

While dad may seem to know something about everything, this Fathers Day, its your turn to teach him a thing or two. Out wetting a line is the perfect opportunity to show him youve got a few tricks up your sleeve.

1. Fix fishy hands with mouthwash

We understand the smell of fresh fish on your hands means only one thing, a triumphant day of fishing! BUT, we also know that while the smell might remind you and dad of success on the water, it may not be a scent youre interested in wearing post Fathers Day fish-off. When preparing for Fathers Day Sailo-style, bring a travel-size mouthwash on your adventure. Pour two tablespoons in the palm of your hand and rub vigorously. This should do the trick: leave the stink behind but take the memories home.

2. Use hair ties as rod ties

Ladies, this Fathers Day prove to dad that daughters are the best fishing companions. On your Fathers Day fishing boattrip, take along a few extra hair ties, its time to let dad know those pesky rubber bands you would leave around the house are good for more than an updo. Use hair ties or scrunchies as an organizational tool to keep two-piece rods from getting bent and tangled. Just promise not to get mad at dad if a few go missing around the house

3. Garbage bags make great emergency seat covers

Rain or shine, the fish will be biting. Show dad that a little rain cant slow you down. While you can be in control of the boat you choose, you cannot control the weather. Come to your fishing excursion prepared with a few garbage bags to use as seat covers for rain. Dad will be happy you were thinking ahead when hes able to enjoy a dry seat on his triumphant trip back to shore.

4. Follow animals to fish

Follow the birds and dolphins; these animals will lead you to the fishing jackpot. Often times, birds hover over small baitfish while dolphins swim in schools with larger fish like tuna. Boats like Sailos custom 28 Whitewater open fisherman come equipped with two large live wells and a massive icebox to ensure the fish you catch stay fresh until you make your way back to land. Explain to dad that the best way to fill that icebox is to follow your animal guides!

5. No spilled reels with hot water

New line on your reel often spills because it hasnt formed memory on the spool yet. To fix this problem, run newly spooled line under some hot water for about a minute and watch it bend to conformity. Ta-da! No more tangles and twists.

6. Opt for a knowledgeablecaptain!

Did you know failed fishing adventures are often due to lack of awareness of an area as opposed to skill level? When renting a boatwith Sailo, you will have a reliable boat and can also choose to have a knowledgeable captain.
