By Pete Gluszek, FLW Pro and SFT Pro-Staff April 29, 2014 No comments

If you're like most of us, you spend your fishing days looking for the right spot at the right time with the right bait so you can load 'em up. Cutting and re-tying, changing lures, tossing spent mounds of plastics to the floor...there isn't time for tidiness. But what happens over time when a bunch of those little bits of plastics and line end up down the drain in the floor of your boat? It could be a disaster waiting to happen. In this unique video blog Pete Gluszek re-counts a situation on Lake Erie that all big water fisherman should hear.

Soon after hearing Pete's story, the news broke of Elite Series pro Clark Reehm, who had a dipping dye pen that was rolling around on the floor of his boat  lodge in his throttle while traveling 55 MPH.  Heading towards the dock he couldn't slow down and he spun the boat out ejecting himself and his Marshall.  Sure, it was a freak accident, but serves as another reminder of why keeping the bottom of your boat clean means water safety.  Click "play video" below to see and hear Pete's story.
