Since most of us fish to some degree over the winter what do you guys do or not do with regard to winterizing your boats? Do you dump any stabilizer in the fuel tank? I just plan on throwing an old cover, that has a hole in it, under my newer one to help support any snow.

Definitely use stabilizer in your gas. Run your motor until the stabilized gas is running through the engine.

Most outboard manufacturers recommend that you do NOT run your engine dry, but check your owners manual. Most are available on-line.

Make sure you motor is tilted all the way down so all the water is out. Also, pull your drain plugs and make sure your livewells are dry. You may want to put your trailer up on blocks so there is no pressure on the tires over the winter.

The other choice is to fish all winter....it's up to you.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.
