Take advantage of available technology. Handheld computer and organizers such as the Palm Pilot can be very helpful to the bass angler. You can log conditions, create and use checklists to avoid forgetting things, and store phone numbers of new friends and contacts you meet along the way. You can also download turn-by-turn maps to your next angling destination. When you get home, you can quickly upload all the new information to your home computer for future use.
