Don’t forget how to run your wires


Anyone who has ever taken a battery out of a boat knows how helpful this next one is. Whether you’re trying to remember how to run your trolling motor batteries in a series or trying to make sure you don’t lose just one of the 2 dozen wires that are on your cranking battery, using a zip tie to bundle each battery terminal’s wires together is extremely helpful. Once I have one battery’s positives tied together and its negatives tied together, I’ll then tie those two zip ties together. And when it comes time to put the batteries back in the boat, I know exactly where each wire goes.

Hopefully these zip tie tips help you with your fishing. Whether you’re using them to modify baits or organize your boat, zip ties are a cheap but extremely versatile and helpful tool for me.
