10 Holiday Gift Ideas for a Kayak Angler

Here are of few gift ideas put together by Shane and I for any kayak angler, beginner or pro. Forward the list to your wife and family members and you'll be all set for the 2014 kayak fishing season!!


Overboard Rods

Of course we are big fans of Overboard rods!! We truly feel they are the best value on the market. You can get a standard cork split grip built to your specifications for around $80-100 and you can get the floating Bobber series rod for $120, or customized for a little extra.

Tackle Webs

Another awesome product made by a company based in Florida. Capt. Mike Ortego has solved the issue of storage for the kayak angling population. They offer packages built for specific kayak models and individual storage options to allow you to customize your storage options.
Price Range: $24.99 - $44.99

Kanan Lures

Some of most killer lures to break onto the market in the last year or two. My Kanan Aqua Relic Fatty swimbait single handedly help me solidify my finish at the 4th and Final MAKBF event, where I was eventually able to garner Angler of the Year honors. Use the code "FAT15" and save 15% of Aqua Relic Fatty Lures (Regular price $14.95). Also, all you snakehead and Potomac River Rats check out the newest addition to the line up, Top water Frogs!!!
My personal favorite Kanan Lure. The Aqua Relic Fatty "Blaze Shad".

AFTCO Transom Bibs

The bibs are absolutely one of the most useful pieces of fishing gear/clothing that I own. Whether it is cold, raining, or snowing I wear these bibs on almost all of my fall through spring fishing trips. Extremely comfortable, breathable, and durable. Also, have some great pockets for storage.
Price: $149.99

Dizm Sunglasses

Dizm is an awesome eco friendly company that puts out a great product. All there sunglasses are polarized and they have a number of different models. Price: $95
My buddy Morgan, from TLTFF, here rockin' his Dizm's.

Bust 'Em Baits

A local Pasadena, Md company that makes fish catching plastics. They make the #1 jerkbait for stripers in any color imaginable. Also, they make 3.75" paddle tails that are killer for stripers and speckled trout!!! Brandon and CJ are also avid kayak anglers so support your fellow plastic pirates.
Price: $3.50 for a 6 pack

The new 3.75" Paddle Tails from Bust 'Em Baits

12 WT Gloves

The best light weight fishing gloves on the market. They offer a SunWt and a WorkWt model, with the WorkWt having added grip protection on the palm.
Price: $29-$39

Astral Buoyancy Kayak Shoes

Both offerings, the "Brewer" and "Rassler," are great choices for a paddle shoe. They can also be worn for all other tasks like walking or hiking with their lightweight and durable features. Also, be on the lookout for Astral's new fishing PFD set to hit the market early 2014.
Price: $99-120


 The Fish Grip

A perfect stocking stuffer!! You can never have too many either. Come in all different colors and they are easy to use. Grip strength is top notch and they truly help you not lose the fish before you get the picture.
Price: $11-$15

State Flag Headwear

Another item made by a fellow kayak angler. These are custom buffs with the Maryland Flag logo, and everyone know Maryland has one of the coolest state flags. They offer both the UV and the Polar Buff.
