Last Minute Shopping Ideas for the Kayak Fisherman

You waited and waited. Surely something would pop into your head. What do you get the kayak fisherman who has everything? Time is ticking quickly and you need to make a decision stat!

One thing that a fisherman always needs is more tackle. Maybe it's hooks. Maybe it's swimbaits but either way, he'll find something he needs. When it comes to tackle, the first place to stop and where you can still get it right now is Tackle Warehouse. They won't get there goodies they select by Christmas day but chances are they won't be on the lake Christmas Day.

Speaking of gift cards, if you know your giftee has been checking out some electronics or gadgets but you aren't sure which one it was, get a gift card for that too! The two places I trust the most with my time and money for kayaks and gear are Mariner Sails and HOOK1.

Not really into the gift card thing? You might have time to get to a local sporting goods store and pick up some baits. If you really don't know which ones to get, try asking a sales associate. At some of the outdoor specialty stores (NOT WALMART), the associates will have an idea of at least what they like. Try to get soft plastics in watermelon color and hard baits in a silver or white pattern. Most importantly of all, get a gift receipt. They may say to your face they love it but just in case, give them an option to return it.

Still at a loss? If it's not gift cards and not lures, a handful of cash works wonders.

May all your Christmases be bright and your stockings stuffed with soft baits and football jigs. Or cash. Cash is always good.
