Line control on the pontoon

Often in a float trip I make forays to the bank and then back into the pontoon. I bring a shooting basket with me and lay it on the left side of the pontoon, between the rod holders. If I make a stop I simply carry the basket with me and lay it on the bank to start fishing. The line is already out and fed into the basket and ready to shoot. Before getting back in to the pontoon I shoot the line and strip it back into the basket. I carry the basket back to the pontoon. It is now ready to shoot once I get headed back down the river again. This saves lots of time in preparing the line when movong from the bank to the pontoon.
