We are well into the season of giving! So you’re shopping for the kayak angler in your life and you don’t even know where to start? We get it – when it comes to kayak fishing, there’s a lot of gear involved. It can seem like they have so much stuff already, and you don’t want to get them something they already have or are never going to use.

Here are 5 Products for the Kayak Angler On Your List:

1. Hawg Trough Fish Measuring Device

Make sure that kayak angler of yours is able to measure their personal best while also following all rules and regulations!

The Hawg Trough Fish Measuring Device has almost become the standard measuring device for fisherman across the country. Its concave design cradles the fish for simple measurement. Available in white and yellow the Hawg Trough measures fish in 1/4 inch increments from 8 inches to 30 inches in length. A word of advice: The Hawg Trough does not float but it luckily has holes on either end to attach a leash.



2. Daiwa Revros Freshwater Spinning Combo

I know it may look like they already have enough rods and reels, but coming from a kayak angler, I can honestly tell you ‘the limit does not exist’.

The Daiwa Revros spinning combo offers a great value and a new cosmetic design. The Revros reel has four ball bearings and Digigear digital gear design for smooth, easy rotation. Also featuring Daiwa’s Air Rotor for lighter weight and greater sensitivity.



3. Yak Gear Grab & Go Kayak Angler Crate Pro Series


For the kayak angler that is just getting started, this kit will provide them everything they need to be fishing like a pro!

In a sport where storage space is limited, the Yak Gear Kayak Angler Crate Kit gives kayak anglers and paddlers everything you need to get started in one simple crate. The Build-A-Crate double rod holder kit easily attaches to any crate with inside access, allowing the paddler to efficiently take advantage of all possible storage space.

Two utility leashes for rods, paddles, or accessories allow kayak anglers to stow or release the rod through a quick connect carabiner around a lightweight wrap and closure. The 3.3-lb. grapnel anchor kit is made of galvanized steel and features four 6″ tines that fold out of the way while stored for space maximization and release when ready for use.

The Pro Series kit comes with everything in the basic series, as well as a buoyant fish grip with a unique design that holds the fish’s lip without harming it. The Pro Series kit also comes with a fully adjustable Railblaza Rod Holder II, which holds any type of rod and reel, and its StarPort HD base.



4. YakAttack Omega Pro Rod Holder w/ LockNLoad Mounting System

You know that really expensive reel they just bought themselves recently? Give them something to make sure they don’t lose it.

The YakAttack Omega Rod Holder has developed “The last rod holder you’ll ever need” that offers a truly universal solution to work flawlessly with spinning, casting, larger conventional reels and yes – even fly rods of all sizes. The Omega Pro adds an extension arm to help get your reel higher off the water or helps accommodate longer rod butts. A 360 degree rotating collar offers the ability to quickly secure the rod by capturing the reel, and allows spinning reels to be stowed in the natural downward position, not hung off the side. Multiple modes allow anglers to easily stage rods for quick access or lock them in for maximum security.

The Omega Rod Holder attaches to your kayak, boat, or other watercraft with YakAttack’s brand new LockNLoad mounting system, and is exactly what you would expect from the leader in track mounting technology. Offering unrivaled track mount security and adjustability, the patent pending LockNLoad track base is the most advanced track mount ever created. You want no slip? No problem. The LockNLoad track base attaches quickly and easily with a single MightyBolt, but will not accidentally rotate or loosen from the track, even when your trolling rod takes a big hit.
