Making a List and Checking it Twice or Maybe Three Times or…

Tis’ the season to start fretting about what to put under the tree or fill that Christmas stocking with for the angler, hunter or outdoors person on your list, and as you know, it’s no easy task to come up with something they don’t already have and will actually use.

What follows are some gift suggestions that would be appropriate for someone either just new to the sport(s), or for that really hard to buy for individual.

When doing your shopping it may help to think in terms of “theme packages,” such as a rod/reel/lure combo for a bass or walleye fisherman, a shore lunch kit (details below) or perhaps some lure or rod making materials.

There are also some new items on this years list, including drones, the ever-widening selection of “wearable” technology, and a source for some great “fish art.”

All of the items suggested are likely readily available either on line, or at most sporting goods stores, so the good news is that you likely won’t hear those dreaded words – “Sorry, it’s on back order.” – or have to go on eBay and pay five times the retail price for an item that has been sold out in every store from coast to coast since October.

I would be more than happy to help you out with your choices, so if you have any questions just drop me a line on either Facebook or through this site.

Happy shopping!

The Minn Kota iPilot - Gadget or Godsend?

Unlike the various choppers, blenders and other gadgets featured on those annoying infomercials, every so often a product comes along that is not only innovative and useful but delivers on the pre release hype.

Being a "gadget guy" I'm always on the lookout for some new piece of technology that will help me put a few more fish in my boat although the fact is I have consigned most of my gadget purchases to the ever-expanding bank of storage cabinets in my basement. While they all seemed like a good idea at the time, in practical terms they were not all that effective or useful.
