Bass Fishing Holiday Gift Guide for the Fisherman in Your Life
Much like bass fishing, holiday gift giving for the fisherman in your life can be a gamble. Maybe you know what you’re “fishing” for but aren’t getting any bites. Or maybe you have no clue what you’re doing and simply pick up something fishing-related off the shelf and hope for the best.
If you want to get your favorite fisherman something they’re sure to love, we’ve got you covered with this all-in bass fishing gift giving guide from pros who know and love fishing:
1. Fishing Reel
Bass fishing reels can be divided into two main categories: spinning and baitcasting. The general rule of thumb is to use a spinning reel for a lighter test line (about 8 pounds or less) and a baitcasting reel for heavier lines (about 10 pounds or more).
One of our favorites here at Fishing Crown is the Flash Fishing Spinning Reel 5.2:1 Gear Ratio 13+1BB
. It gives you more control over your gear ratios to create the perfect setup, plus it packs plenty of stopping power to catch bigger fish with finesse.
If you’re not sure what your favorite fisherman prefers, he’d probably be delighted to pick one out for himself. Consider getting him a gift card with a note telling him what “you” picked for him.
2. Fishing Rod
You know what goes great with a new bass fishing reel? A clean, new rod to show it off! This is a daunting process for most gift givers, given the thousands of brands and rods on the market. If you don’t know what your fisherman likes, it might be best to set a budget and let them pick their own.
But if you’re excited to surprise them with something they love, you can’t go wrong with the Diavolo Fishing Rods ML M 1.68-2.7m. Lightweight and sensitive, this rod is designed for tournament-loving anglers who want to fuel their competitive edge and look good in the process.
3. Fishing Line Winder Spooler
Something that bass fishing lovers hate almost as much as the “one that got away?” Tangled line!
A Fishing line winder spooler helps to make line twist a thing of the past. It makes re-spooling your fishing line a breeze so you don’t have to tangle with twists and knots, which means you get to spend more time actually fishing instead of prepping. This tool is also lightweight and compact, plus it’s easy for anyone to use.
4. Multifunctional Fishing Pliers
Fishing pliers will also be a top gift giving idea for bass fishing. Hooks and lines are tiny and hard to maneuver when you have big fingers. Pliers can help make the whole process easier and faster, plus they’re excellent for undoing knots, tightening knots, removing hooks, cutting lines, and tons of other tasks!
Here’s why we love our stainless steel fishing pliers:
- They come on a coiled lanyard, so your fisherman can wear them and always have them within arm’s reach when needed
- The carbon steel finish stands up to wet conditions and won’t rust or corrode
- They’re multifunctional
- The longer needle nose offers more reach and flexibility
- They’re comfortable to grip
If you want to upgrade your gift, these fishing pliers in our store come with a fish grip to keep your catch in place.
5. Bass Fishing Five-Layer Tackle Box
Bass fishermen always need a new tackle box, especially one like this Outdoor Tackle Backpack for Fishing Hiking Hunting Camping
that makes organization a breeze. Unlike the traditional open-and-expand boxes, this one keeps compartments secure and separate so items stay put, even when the box is dropped, rolled down the bank, or falls into the water. It looks more like a toolbox than a tackle box, so you might even get two: one for his tackle and one for all the little nuts, bolts, and tools that litter his workspace in the garage.
6. Winter Fishing Warm Mask
Fishing in the cold? Now that takes some skill and dedication. Make it more enjoyable with our winter fishing warm mask. It’s designed to offer superior warmth to the neck, ears, and face while keeping the sweat, wind, and bugs off your face. Its breathable lining is moisture wicking to help you stay warm and cozy, plus you won’t have to play tug-of-war with it to keep it in place.
7. Dry Bag
For the fisherman who truly doesn’t need another pole, reel, or tackle box, you can’t go wrong with a dry bag. Dry bags are those helpful yet underutilized tools that most fishermen wish they had but always forget about until they really need one. These bags are waterproof and built to protect their important belongings or extra sets of clothes from splashes and wetness, even when it falls completely in the water.
One of our favorites is the Waterproof Large Capacity Fishing Tackle Bags dry bag, which features a remarkably similar face a bass fishing pro makes when “the big one” gets away. It also comes with a separate waterproof cellphone case so they can take pics of their prizes without the risk of damage.
8. Half Finger Fishing Gloves
Gloves pose an age-old challenge for bass fishermen: either have cold hands or hands that can’t function. Our half finger fishing gloves offer the best of both worlds: with a slim fit, these gloves offer enough warmth to keep your fingers working but also make your fingers available to hook bait, use pliers, and all the important little jobs you need to do when fishing. They offer a non-slip surface and are super breathable, so you won’t mind wearing these for an extended period of time.
