Excellent review Justin. Thank you. I fish from a flats boat in PI Sound (just got
a new Hewes Redfisher 18 last spring!). I do like having my line cutters & inexpensive pliers as separate tools for several reasons. I like the stainless 7” pliers without a tether or lanyard attached that I keep in my shorts pocket. I also like
the Boomerang line cutters that I purchase from Amazon for $10.- $12. This tool
is very light, stays sharp & attaches via a self retracting light line that I attach to
my belt/belt loop. I prefer this set up to using a combo pliers/ line cutter in a holster/case. I often fish with another angler on the stern. I keep a 2nd pair of
Pliers & line cutters in my vertical rod rack so that my fishing buddy & I do not
have to run back & forth in the boat sharing these tools.

Keep the good info coming!

Justin, great topic for inshore newbies like myself. Gave me some ideas to improve my checklist and lure/tackle storage!

Justin, great job! One suggested addition would be to let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return. Makes it a bunch easier to find you if you do not return for any reason!

Great job Justin; Thats very good info there I would suggest a pair of line scissors,I put mine on a utility reel and locate it in a handy spot on my back pack or in my Kayak. Also I carry an extra pair of sun glasses just in case.

Good checklist, Justin. I’ve heard other discussions about the importance of eliminating unnatural scents from your fishing tackle. Have you noticed any issues with the use of sun screen or bug spray in this regard? I have been trying to only use clothing, hats, gloves, etc to protect against bugs and sun burn just in case.
