Gift Ideas for People That Love to Fish

Do you hear that? Sleigh bells! It’s that time of year again and if you’re anything like me, you’re scrambling for ideas. To make things a tiny bit easier, we’ve compiled a short list of great gift ideas for people that love to fish! Whether your Christmas gift-giving budget is very small or limitless, there is something on this list that is just the right size.

1. Tackle

No, not like in football. Tackle is the general term for gear. The gifting possibilities are endless. Equipment like rods, reels, lures, nets, and tackle boxes/bags are always great choices! Most gear is specific to the type and location of the fishing being done. (You can find all sorts of tackle at

2. Gadgets

Who doesn’t love the latest gadgets?!?! The days of the old school fish finders are gone. They all are high-tech and high-def. It’s just like having eyes under the water! GPS units are also popular with today’s fishermen/women. With a GPS, you get a detailed map of the lake you’re on so finding those fishing “sweet spots” is a breeze.


3. Portable Livewell

If you’re looking to give a gift to someone who is extremely good at fishing (or extremely lucky), consider a portable livewell. After all, they will need someplace to put all the fish they are going to catch! (And its way cooler than a bucket!)


4. A Floating Paradise

Let’s just get right to the biggie. How about a boat? Bass boats, jon boats, pontoons, etc. There are so many to choose from! Deciding on which type depends on whether you’re looking to exclusively fish or whether you want to cruise.

5. Boat Accessories

If your fisherman/woman currently owns a boat or if they’re planning on purchasing one in the near future, there are plenty of accessories to make their boating experience more enjoyable. A boat cover will help protect the boat from weather as well as debris and curious animals. Bimini tops make a hot day on the water a little cooler by providing a welcome shade. We also offer accessories such as replacement pontoon furniture, spare tire covers, and mooring bags.

Another great idea would to be purchase replacement life jackets, tubes to pull behind a boat, or waterskis.



Ultimate fishing experience—Gifting “things” is great, but there is nothing quite like gifting an experience. Plan a weekend trip from start to finish or buy an experience from a website like These types of gifts are truly unique and can be custom tailored to each individual’s likes and dislikes.

There you have them–5 great ideas (plus a bonus idea) for putting a smile on the face of the fisherperson in your life.
