We know there is a lot going on right now and it’s easy to lose track of time, but Father’s Day is June 21st and we’ve hand picked some of the top gifts Dad actually needs on his kayak!
Rod Floats – We know accidents happen. We also know the actual price Dad paid for his new rod and reel he bought and it’s a little more than what he told you it costs. The YakGear Rod Floats easily slip on to any medium to small fishing rod and reel and keeps it afloat when accidents happen and believe me, they happen. With the YakGear Rod Floats, Dad can protect his gear from accidents and after all it’s cheaper than replacing the rod and reel – trust me.
FishStick Measuring Board – Most fish throughout the United States have a legal minimum length requirement in order for you to keep it for dinner. This is done to keep the fish population healthy and sustainable. It is important to know your fishing regulations in your area as they differ from state to state. Keeping undersized fish can result in hefty fines and because of this, It would be a good idea to get Dad a FishStick. The YakGear FishStick is a must have for any serious kayak angler and measurements can be custom marked according to the type of fish Dad likes to fish for as different fish have different size regulations. The YakGear FishStick can be folded down to 12 inches which is perfect for kayaks and it also floats!
Brush Grippers – Anchoring is one of the most overlooked aspects of kayaking. It only takes a small amount of wind or even the slightest current to move you off your course. That’s why we think Dad will love these brush anchors. They’re easy to stow, lightweight, and make a great backup anchor that Dad can leave in his kayak just in case he forgets to bring one. Most lakes and bays have some sort of structure that you can anchor to. The YakGear Brush Gripper clamps on tightly to brush, limbs and various other objects. Simply squeeze to open the jaws; release to close. These Brush Grippers clamps down tight for a secure hold on limbs. Specially designed with spring-loaded tension so the harder you pull, the tighter it grips!
Kayak Angler Starter Crate – This kit is a great for any Dad just getting started or even looking to outfit his kayak. Because storage is limited on a kayak, we think Dad will love this great storage option for keeping his lures and tackle safe and secure. It even comes with 2 mountable rod holders that mount directly to the crate and even a mountable storage pouch for keeping things organized- we all know how mush Dad would enjoy that!
YakStick Floating Stake-Out Stick 6ft – If paddling in “skinny” waters is more of his thing, we recommend getting Dad this lightweight Stake-Out Pole. This is a preferred method of anchoring in shallow coastal waters or even shallow lakes and ponds. This is a great alternative anchor that is extremely light weight and it even floats! What other anchor that you know of floats?.. ProTip: This can even be turned into a cool selfi-stick when using the RAILBLAZA RailMount and Camera mount!
The Fish Grip – Nobody likes getting fish slime on their hands. Not only is fish slime funky but removing It from the fish also harms the fish in a negative way which is important to know, especially if Dad has a hard time catching fish big enough to keep and releases all the small ones. The Fish Grip is a must have tool for any fisherman and is also great for taking photos of the kids and their catch, who don’t really like to touch slimy fish.
RAILBLAZA Rod Holder R with MiniPort Tracmount – One of the first things anyone adds on their kayak is a rod holder for fishing. That’s why we think this gift is virtually fail-proof for Dad. Even better, It works with Spinning, Baitcasting and even Fly reels – But wait, there’s more! This very handy kit even comes with a track mountable base which allows Dad to mount and remove this rod holder to almost any kayak with no tools required.
RAILBLAZA Rod Holder II & Tracloader SidePort Combo – With the RAILBLAZA Rod Holder II & Tracloader SidePort Combo, Dad won’t have to waste time with those pesky installations. The Tracloader SidePort allows tool-free installation into your track, giving you the ability to mount your favorite accessories to the gunnel without drilling in your boat. Better yet, this rod holder and Base can even be used on your kayak giving you more versatility.
This guide is meant to help you find the perfect gift for the kayaking Dad this Father’s Day or least spark some inspiration for your own gift ideas. Remember, Father’s Day is June 21st and it’s right around the corner!
