If you don’t know what you want, the Saltwater Edge Inshore Anglers Gift Guide is full of awesome gifts for the kayak and center console angler. It includes our newest, best-selling and most recommended items in the inshore category, as well as some good ideas by price. If you are still jammed up, Gift Certificates are always perfect.
New: The Van Staal VR50 is so new it probably will not make it under the tree! The VR50 is capable of putting the boots to any inshore gamefish. There is simply no other reel of its size that packs a whopping 25lbs of drag and provides 37 inches per turn; all this in reel weighing less than 9 oz and fully sealed (a big plus for kayak guys). As mentioned above our original allocation is sold out, but we are confident that Van Staal can deliver to meet demand during Q1. Read our VR50 Gear Review. ($489)
Best Seller: The 30lb Boga Grip becomes one of the favorite tools of everyone who ever owns one. Great for controlling a large bass and weighing one up to 30lbs. Also, handy to safely land bluefish ($124.95)
Top Tackle: The GLoomis E6X Inshore Rods are built on a GLoomis exclusive Multi Taper Technology, utilizing a tapered mandril. This advanced process creates a very light rod with both a powerful butt and a fast, sensitive tip. The shop favorite for albies and bonito is the E6X 844S ($199.95).
Under $30: The Dexter Russell UR-Cut Filet Knife make cleaning your catch easier and safer. Dexter Knives have earned a reputation for quality and durability. The UR-Cut moldable handle material allows the user to form the handle to your unique grip, making the handle more comfortable to use and easier to grip. Custom formed to your hand to enhance control and precision of the cut making the most of your catch.
Under $50: The Simms Intruder BiComp LS Shirt is lighter more comfortable performance fishing shirt. Cut from woven polyester, the Intruder BiComp features built-in COR3™ technology that boosts quick-drying, wicking, anti-odor and UPF 30 sun protection. Knit sides and arm panels provide comfort and freedom of movement when casting, poling, or rowing. Two of the most thoughtful features, knit fabric on the cuffs that keep pulled up sleeves locked in place and a sunglass chamois located inside the bottom hem. Available in Sterling and Light Blue. ($49.99)
Under $100: Saltwater Edge Premium Striper Hoody This is, as far as we know, the heaviest weight hoody material out there. We sourced these from Kellsport in Fall River, Massachusetts and they are made in the USA. We reorder each fall, as those beloved hoodies have slowly been lost or loved to death by their owners. If you pick up or put on one of these, you’ll know it’s worth every penny ($99.95).
Going for a “Wow!”: Stay warm on windy days and foggy mornings with Simms’ Men’s Challenger Windbloc Hoodie, sheltered by a wind-blocking wall of Polartec® Windbloc hardface stretch fleece. The three-point adjustable hood extends coverage. Two zippered handwarmer pockets and one zippered chest pocket. Wear it around town as well. Add a shell for waterproof warmth. Available in Anvil and Dusk ($199.95)
