Fathers Day Fishing Gifts


Does your Dad already have a collection of "world's best Dad" mugs? Does he just go out and buy toys as soon as he wants them, leaving no time for well intentioned children and family members? If so, here are five clever gift ideas for Dads who like saltwater fishing in Florida

1. South Florida Peacock Bass Fishing Charter

Heard of a Peacock bass? The crazy fighting fish from Brazil that some schmucks brought to Florida and now is taking over our canals? Yeah that one. It might be bad for the environment but it sure is good for anglers. These beautiful fish are best caught from a small boat with an expert guide with the right equipment. We've got just the guy and your dad should be pretty stoked, especially if he's never done this before.

2. Williamson Live Mackerel Dredge Bar

Kite fishing is a popular way of catching sailfish, but a lot of the pros are recommending using a dredge. This dredge bar comes pre-rigged with 9 baits and 6 spoon flashers to get those sails excited. 300-lb. mono throughout makes it sturdy and Live Mackerel are pre-rigged and swim upright at 1-7 knots. The dredge includes an easy-to-rinse mesh bag.

3. Leatherman Charge TTi Multi Tool

Building on the success of the Charge AL and ALX the TTi rules the world of Leathermans. Is there such thing as having too many Leathermans? Your Dad probably says "no, there's no such thing." Besides a host of obvious tools, the TTi has a sculpted titanium handle that won't rust and is comfortable and lightweight.

4. GoPro HD Hero 2 Outdoor Edition Camera

Waterproof, shockproof, nearly bullet proof, the GoPro HD Hero 2 is a great gift for any outdoors or fishing enthusiast. For Dads who love to fish, we recommend the Outdoor edition complete with headstrap mount. Although the headstrap looks pretty ridiculous it's the best way to capture Dad's next fishing fight – err you know what we mean – and it's also great for Blair Witch reinactments and inane frat house humor your Dad loves.

5. Ultra Luxury Fishing Charter Aboard a 65 Foot Viking Platinum Edition Sportfish

Unless your Dad belongs to the top 1% chances are he doesn't have a 65 Viking Platinum Edition sport fishing yacht. This 65 foot boat – we mean yacht -- is complete with luxurious staterooms, flatscreen TVs everywhere, a top of the line entertainment system, and fishing equipment and tackle all at a tournament level. Sure, a day on the water will run you almost $4,000, but that sure beats the $3+ million price tag. And for that price, the owners even been good to pay for the first 20 miles of fuel. What a bargain!
