Don't Be That Guy, Launch Your Boat Like A Boss

I've been an avid fisherman for most of my life, which means I have spent my fair share of time around boats. Being around boats for so long, sometimes I forget that other people may not have had as much practice or know the same tips and tricks I have accumulated over the years. Which is when it can be frustrating for me at times, watching someone struggle or have no clue what they are doing at the ramp or out on the water. That is exactly what I ran into yesterday at the launch as I was trying to load my boat for my weekly Tuesday night bass fishing league. So today when I got to work I thought I would write on the blog and share some boat launching tips in hopes that it will help some novice boater out.

But for the "noobies" or the first time boaters this season, here are a couple key rules to follow while using a public launch so that you wont be "that guy" on the lake this summer.
