Going to start this series a little earlier this year, some of you like to shop early and often. To see past year’s gift ideas, check here. Plus my birthday is on Thanksgiving this year, so for those of you that want to send gifts, it will serve as good gift ideas
Really, is there anything more handy then a good multi-tool on the boat or in the field. This past spring, I picked up a Leatherman Blast, and I think with a roll of duct or electrical tape and my Blast, I can fix anything I need to on my boat. It’s light and compact enough to always carry in your tackle bag or box and takes up less space then a bunch of specialty tools.
The pliers can tighten nuts, like your battery terminals which need to be checked often. The screwdriver saved my bacon when my front depthfinder mount came loose during a tourney on Lake Michigan. I also have used my knive to cut lures free from underwater ropes that I have hooked, which when throwing a $16 plus japanse crankbait or that lucky plug that catches all your fish, the blast can pay for itself very quickly!
