Does your dad, uncle or grandpa spend long days trying to hook a bass?
If your dad loves to fish, consider getting him some new gear for Father’s Day.
There are tons of fishing accessories out there, so there is more than likely something you can find that dad doesn’t already have.
There is so much gear out there that serve different purposes depending on what kind of fishing you’re doing.
If you aren’t certain what kind of lures, bait, etc., your dad needs, then a gift card to his favorite fishing store, like Bass Pro Shops, is a safe option so that he can go and pick out whatever he wants.
If you’re looking for something reliable on the less-expensive side, a kayak is a good way to go. Kayaks are also great because they come in tons of colors and designs.
3. Lures, but shop carefully
If you do decide you want to get new lures, it’s probably a good idea to figure out what your dad uses.
Now, you could simply ask him, but that obviously eliminates the element of surprise. Another thing you could do to keep your Father’s Day gift a secret is ask his fishing friends what he uses/needs.
A backpack cooler is great because dad won’t have to worry about needing an extra hand to carry it. Plus, his lunch, snacks and drinks will stay nice and cool all day long.
5. Waterproof bag
When you’re fishing on a boat, things are bound to get wet. Having a waterproof bag is super helpful to keep any valuables, like a phone or wallet, dry while out on the water.

7. Tackle bag with lure organizers
If your dad has been using the same old tackle box for years, it may be time for an upgrade.
Tackle bags are a nice upgrade from a tackle box, and a lot of them are very affordable. These keep all fishing gear organized and allow for easy over-the-shoulder carrying.
