There are only 10 shopping days left until Christmas and choosing the right gift can be a real challenge.
Wandering around tackle store or fishing section of a large department store can be as foreign to you as me attending a dance recital.
With this in mind, I thought a few pointers might help you to reduce your stress or anxiety when trying to buy that perfect gift for that bass fisherman in your life.
There are all kinds of crankbaits on the market and each will catch fish under the correct conditions, but there are two brands that raise the interest level of every bass enthusiasts.
Luckycraft and Lobina-Rico have a wide variety of hardbaits from topwater to deep divers that have excellent action in the water and the color patterns get the attention of fishermen as well as those hungry bass.
If the price range is $20 or less, this is a can't-miss choice that will bring a smile on Christmas morning. f the price range for your choice is a bit higher, then a quality spinning reel made by Shimano could be the perfect gift.
The handle is interchangeable for a left or right-handed retrieve, which is one less decision to make as a Christmas shopper.
Another hint is that the front drag is far more popular and quicker to adjust than the rear drag.
The Sedona 1500 sells for $49.95, while the Symetre is priced at $79.95 and the Stradic at $119.95.
These reels have an excellent warranty program from Shimano and would be the perfect reel for dropshotting for bass or catching trout from any of our local waters.
Probably the best Shimano deal in years is the Curado baitcasting reel, which normally sells for 199.95 and has a factory rebate of $50, which makes the cost $149.95.
This is an extremely popular reel among bass fishermen and very likely is the best Christmas sale in the fishing industry.
Now, how about selecting that fishing rod which may be one of the toughest decisions to make as a shopper for that angler in your life?
Keep in mind quality has a price tag and rods can vary from $29.95 upwards to $300 for the best in the fishing industry.
When you purchase that special gift of a quality fishing rod warranty accompanies that product, which is essentially for a lifetime and this is hard to beat!
A couple of names to look for are Rogue or Rim Country Rods, both of which have a wide varietyelection, and the guarantees are the best.
Good luck in your Christmas shopping for that angler in your life and if you are still not sure, then a gift certificate will always work.njoy the outdoors and remember the reason for the season.
