Fishing Christmas Gift Guide for 2020

Christmas is right around the corner and many people are starting to wonder ‘What should I get for my fishing mad husband?’ To help answer that question we have put together this fishing Christmas Gift Guide.

We have gone through all the most popular and trending fishing products of 2020 to give you a wide range of gift ideas to pick from.

We have deliberately avoided rods and reels – personally I would like to pick these out myself, so we have focused on fishing tools and tackle in this article.

Let’s dive in!

Fishing Christmas Gift Guide

We have split this article into two sections – fishing tools and fishing tackle. In each topic we have picked the best 4-5 products available.

These have been selected based on their popularity, only new products, and we have tried to give a wide range of applications and categories, so you should be able to find something that your angler will be interested in.

Fishing Tools

There is nothing as exciting as opening up a gift to find the latest and greatest fishing tools. Anything to make your fishing more interesting, effective, and comfortable.

We have found some of the more interesting gift ideas around, so have a read through to see if there is anything that meets your needs.

Intex Challenger Kayak

If you haven’t tried kayak fishing before, then I would strongly recommend giving it a go with this Intex inflatible kayak. At 9 feet long it is surprisingly stable and will allow you to get out to where the fish live which may be too far away from the bank to cast to.

With a 220 lb carrying capacity, this will suit most anglers. Once you have seen how fun kayak fishing can be you may want to upgrade to a hard kayak, but this is an excellent starting point.

Marchway Floating Dry Bag

If there is one items I should’ve bought long before I did it is a large dry bag. There is a sense of security and safety when you know your valueable possessions are safe and dry, particularly cell phones or electric car keys.

I have seen far too many people lose their valuables when they are stored loose when a fish splashes or a kayak paddle wets them. It doesn’t take much water to ruin expensive modern electronics, but it is easy to protect them with this.

Dr Meter Fishing Scale

If you care about the size of the fish you are catching or if there are local size limits then you will want a fishing scale. This model gives a wide range from 0.2 to 110 lbs, so it will handle all the fish you are targeting.

It also comes with a tape measure if you want to know the length of the fish. The LCD screen also makes the weight extremely clear and visible (which is good when you want to show your friend just how much bigger you fish is than his).

Restcloud Folding and Telescoping Net

The one problem I have with nets on a boat is that they take up so much room, particularly if you are targeting big fish like tuna or tarpon.

The beauty of this product is that the net folds up AND the handle is telescopic. Which means that this very large net doesn’t take up much room at all.

KastKing Fillet Knife

Having a high quality fillet knife is a must have for any angler. Made from stainless steel so it is corrosion resistant and will last for years even amongst the saltwater and fish guts.

The aesthetics of this knife are unreal – its design is stunning. It is available in a number of different sizes depending on the length of fish you are targeting, plus the non slip grip makes it safe to use.

Fishing Tackle

Selecting the best tackle is both a joy and a task. I have lost too many fish to low quality gear to ever buy dodgy equipment ever again. We have focused on some of the latest and greatest baits and lures available on the market.

Anything that you can do to increase your fish strike rate is worth while in my opinion.

Berkley Powerbait

The Berkley soft plastics have become a favorite very quickly amongst fishermen everywhere. Berkley manufacturer a huge number of high quality products to help you catch more fish.

These soft plastic Powerbaits are strong and attractive so you will get more strikes and won’t lose them to sharp teeth.

Spinnerbaits have always gained the attention of hungry or territorial fish. The Booyah lure has a different look to other spinnerbaits with a complimentary head and blade color pattern.

TRUSCEND Fishing Lures

These multi jointed fishing lures give the Truscend bait an extremely lifelike movement that fish are attracted to. This is a topwater specialist and will catch fish that hunt looking upwards.

Plus the twin mustad hooks means you are much less likely to get hooks straightened by that trophy fish.

River2Sea Whopper Plopper

Last on the list is the Whopper Plopper by River2Sea. If you are looking for some new lures to add to your tackle box, then I would certainly consider this as an option.

With two treble hooks it will hook more fish that strike at it.
