Trailering & Tow Vehicle Tips – Don’t Be “THAT Guy”

Jim will be sharing tips on boat and trailer setup in preparation for the upcoming fishing & boating season. Don’t be “That Guy” who breaks down on the road before the fishing trip even gets started. Jim will cover key aspects of trailering that will add to your fishing skillset. Every fisherman should consider their boat and trailer just as important as the rest of their fishing tackle. Start the season out right by avoiding unnecessary trailer problems and by being prepared to handle any unforeseen problems when they occur.
