RE: storage of leaders and hooks

cleaning fishboxes

My fishboxes have gotten rather stinky lately. Does anyone have sugguestions for cleaning them? So far, I've been using my normal deck soap plus some diluted bleach, but they still stink days after.

offshore temp program

Does anyone know of a good offshore water temperature program? I would love one that has lots of wrecks marked as well.

Is an offshore temp program a useful tool for locating weed lines?
