2019 Gift Guide

Christmas is closing in quicker than a bass chasing a big shad and we figured some quality gift suggestions from us would make buying from your up and coming anglers a little easier. 


Good fishing apparel is a must. Fishing conditions range from ice cold to the hottest summer days. Thankfully AFTCO makes it easy for us to adjust and stay comfortable.

AFTCO Reaper Hoodie

This hoodie is extremely comfortable and warm. The best part is the built in face mask for cold days and when you have to make long runs across the water at high speeds.


AFTCO Sun Shirts

As the title states these are made for those hot summer days. Perfect for the most extreme heat and great for keeping your skin from burning to a crisp while your chasing big fish. Nothing worse than showing up on day 2 of a tournament not being able to move because the sun fried you to a crisp.



Too often we see kids get into our boats with no eye protection. Eye protection is a vital piece of equipment for safety and catching fish. You only get two eyes and we can’t stress the importance of protecting them from the elements involved in fishing. Ever taken a tungsten weight to the eye moving at 150 MPH….NOT FUN! We don’t leave the dock without em’.

Fishing Gear

Many options for fishing gear are out there. The fact is when you are young and don’t have a lot of money it all adds up fast and you usually skimp on important items. This is a great time for parents and family to help with those expensive but necessary high quality items.

Line by Sunline

Line is the main thing connecting you to that fish in the water. If it breaks it doesnt matter how many bites you get. Sunline makes many high quality fishing lines for all situations. These are our work horse lines that cover almost all the bases.


Tackle Storage Boxes

This is another area we see young anglers skimping on because they would rather spend money on baits and reels. Storage is just as important and keeps those expensive baits organized and helps inhibit rusting. Efficiency is important and younger anglers need storage solutions to help.


Rods & Reels

The Shimano SLX rods and reels are hard to beat for the money. We have used them when fishing with our anglers and been impressed by their quality. A good 7.1 gear ratio reel and a 7-foot medium heavy rod is a must have set up for any angler that will allow them to fish a variety of baits.


Fishing Lures

Every angler needs and arsenal of lures to effectively catch fish throughout the season. We have some top picks that even we would be happy to see on Christmas Day.

Spro Bronzeye Frog

Perhaps the most iconic top-water frog on the market, the Spro Bronzeye is one of our all-time favorite ways to catch a bass. Be sure to pair a frog up with braided line like Sunline FX-2.


Spro BBZ Swimbaits

Swimbaits are all the rage right now but they are usually pricey for young anglers. The BBZ series is a great fish catching lure that can allow young anglers to learn the basics of throwing big swimbaits. Find them here ->>>>>> https://spro.com/collections/swimbait

Gift Cards

If you can’t find or make a single choice a gift card to a quality outdoor fishing store is the way to go. Local shops as well as online tackle stores provide good options for gift cards or certificates. These are especially great for picking out lures so your angler can see and select the perfect color and size.

There you have it. A gift guide for even the most experienced anglers out there. All the links to pictured items are under their pictures!

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a fantastic holiday season!

Best Fishes!
