SPRING PREP, BRING IT ON!!!
This is what I do for my spring prep.
I start by laying my gear out. Then comes hook replacement, lure organization, rod and reel maintenance, and tool inspection.
A little reel oil and some Power Pro. The nice thing about Power Pro is you can re-spool it to another reel. My bait caster has new line and the other two rods I just reversed the line, and it's just like new.
My new reel with a fresh spool, can't wait to hammer some Bass.
Next is to organize my lures and baits.
Gummy worms for Bass
With rods and reels ready, baits and lures organized, it's time to makes sure I have my tools and extras ready.
My extras are ready. Bug spray, flash light that doesn't use batteries, sharpening stone, scissors for braid, sunscreen, split ring pliers, regular pliers, sun glasses scale, and I am sure there is a few others that I bring along.
With everything in check the next step is to take a few practice runs to the river to make sure the gear is all good. This is what I do to get ready for the fishing season.
