Tackle Tips: Two Sharpies are Better than One

Speed is everything when it comes to tournament fishing. One of the easiest, most simple ways to insure your baits are positioned quickly is to mark your lines with a Sharpie marker. Capt. Tucker Colquhoun likes to add a second color marker into the mix to distinguish between short and long rigger positions. In this case, red color is used for short, and the long rigger position is black color. Regardless of different rods being rotated through the cockpit positions, each angler can easily position a bait by looking for a specific color.
