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 why it can be frustrating for me at times watching someone struggle at the ramp or have no clue what they are doing 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 take some time and write on the blog to share some boat launching tips in hopes that it will help some novice boater out.
