I agree with bill, wash and flush everything once your done, and you will be ok. My buddy goes all the time, and thats what he does and so far the only thing he has had to replace was his trailer, it ate it up after 5 years, he has a galvinized trailer now.billnorman said:I've fished a lot of saltwater and freshwater. Saltwater is worse on your stuff, including trolling motors or big motors than fresh. It rusts any hooks except the chrome looking ones, but they aren't as sharp as bass hooks. If you take a bass boat, flush the big motor, and wash any hooks you might have used cause they will rust and it spreads. I'd pressure wash the rig and trailer too, and disconnect any electronic devices and let the inside of the connector plugs dry and hit them with some WD-40. Thoroughly rinse your rods and reels as corroded guides will cut line plus they look lousy in green.
