Jake’s Top Ten Christmas Gifts for the 2014 Holiday Season 1- A Troll Pro Underwater Camera Housing and a Dredge Pro too. Always fun to see what you are missing underwater or watch that trophy fish bite. 2- Under Armour Fishing Clothing and Accessories. Every fisherman should have a Under Armour Hoodie, Fishing TShirt, Guide Shirt, or Hat. The perfect gift for a fisherman that they can use while on the land or the sea. 3- Star Rods Plasma Series Inshore Trout Rod. I love the split design and the high quality cork and Fuji Guides. These rods have a great feel for the Trout and Puppy Drum fisherman in your life. 4- Need a good reel to make that trout rod a great combo. Match it with a Canyon Spinning Reel DJR-3500. This reel is smooth, has a great drag system, and has a wagon wheel handle that will help you reel in that big Gator Trout. 5- For the near shore fisherman who likes to jig for bottomfish and Amberjack. Well if you know a fisherman who loves wrestling Reef Donkeys then get them the ultimate jigging rod with top technology. Ryan White of Hatteras Jacks in Rodanthe NC builds a mean custom rod using the new Century blanks. This rod is virtually indestructible and has a great action for one that is so tough. Ryan has been building rods for years and he can make you a custom rod with colors and designs you will love. 6- Every Puppy Drum and Trout fisherman love to get Mirrolures as a stocking stuffer. Mirrolures are the best bait for these two species of fish. You can make your fisherman really happy by giving them several Mirrolures and while you are on the website buy them some Paul Brown lures at the same time! 7- Everybody needs a great cooler whether they are fishing or just having fun. The Pelican Cooler is a great cooler for bait, fish or drinks. It really holds ice to keep your contents cool and it comes with a lifetime warranty. They come in several sizes to fit your needs. 8- If you are fishing then you will need fishing pliers and knives. Calcutta Fishing makes great fishing pliers and knives. Check out their line of fishing tools and knives and fill your fisherman’s stocking with a gift they can use on land and sea. 9- While the next two choices are at the bottom of my list they should be at the top of yours. Everybody that fishes needs to be safe on the water and the first thing you need to think about is a good life jacket. That is why a Mustang Survival Jacket makes a great gift for your fisherman to make sure they are safe on the water. The Mustang Survival Jacket not only is a floatation device but it also keeps you warm if you are in coldwater. No fisherman ever plans to go overboard but if they do you want them wearing this coat. 10- Last but surely not least is one piece of safety equipment your boating fisherman cannot be without. This item is the ACR ResQLink Personal Locator Beacon. An EPIRB is great if you are where your boat is but if your boat sinks or capsizes and you are separated from it, then the location of the boat is no good to the rescuers. That is where the ACR PLB comes in handy. If you find yourself in the water and needing to be rescued, you just pop out the antenna and press the button and your position is given to the Coast Guard or other rescue personnel. No fishing trip is worth your life and this gift gives everyone a good piece of mind. Pi Jake Worthington is an avid fisherman that in 16 years had caught a large variety of fresh and saltwater fish.
