Just picked up a boat. Anyone give me some good basic pointers. I will be fishing from athens to germantown area. It's a 15 footer with a 50hp outboard. No fish finder yet. Had to buy the basics with the spare cash, flares, anchor, fire extingushier, etc.....

pay attention to the launch and how some of the guys who know what they are doing do it. make sure you get your coolers and other stuff in the boat before you launch it, as to lessen the amount of time your holding up the launch. i always try to be as fast as possible in and out of the water as to not hold a bunch of people up. some things, like parking the truck are normal, so i don't run around like a mad man. but if your prepared with all your other things, you should be in and out quick and not holding up the others who are itching to go fishing. good luck with her.. ohhh.. get marine stabil for your gas as well. i always add the stabil every time i put gas in. this ethanol gas is just crap for small motors of all types.
