Hey you alumuminum boat guys: When was the last time you checked the sides (especially the extruded chine) for rough spots and nicks?

Do yourself a favor. Get a good file and check the gunwales and chine of your boat. Any little protruding nick or rough spot will grab leader and cut like crazy. File it smooth anywhere that the leader might contact.

Its time for those big fall fish and I would hate to lose a fish at the boat because the leader got nicked on a rough chine.

You are right Crabbait. I was fishing with Burner in his new boat a couple weeks ago when he lost a fish on a trim tab. If that was not bad enough it also cost him his lucky diver. File em down.
