‘Tis the season for some new fishing gear! It’s down to the wire, and this Christmas ask your loved ones for gifts that will help you get out there and catch the big one. Or if you need some help picking up some last-minute items for that hard-to-buy-for someone, these items are perfect!

  1. Ice fishing lures

For some of us ice season is just around the corner, for others it’s in full swing. Either way, now is the perfect time to stock up on some new hard water gear.

When it comes to ice lures, you can’t go wrong with the Rapala Jigging Rap. It comes in tons of colours, has multiple hooks, and moves in circles when raised and lowered in the water. This lure is a staple for ice anglers.

  1. Lure organizer

Down time over the winter is perfect for organizing your tackle box. A lure organizer is a simple gift your non-angler loved ones can pick up for you. Remember, a neat tackle box makes your life easier when you’re on the water.

  1. Ice Shelter

Wear and tear on your ice shelter is inevitable over the years. So this year ask for one that’s got the comfort and practicality you need. The Rapala Sherpa Insulated Pop-Up Ice Shelter will protect you during those long, cold winter days spent on the ice.

The best part about this shelter? Set up and take down takes minutes. You’ll be sitting pretty, waiting for those fish to bite before you know it!

  1. New rods and reels

You can never have enough rods and reels, especially if you’re a multi species angler. So ask Santa for that combo you’ve been eyeing up. The only downfall? Unless it’s ice gear, you will have to wait patiently for a few months before you’ll be able to use your new rods and reels.

  1. Fishing wear

Fish don’t care what you’re wearing, but if you’re comfortable and dressed for the elements it will make your life a lot easier when fishing. For ice fishing, you’ll definitely want to make sure you have some warm, waterproof gloves. The Interface™ Lobster Claw Ice Mittens will keep your hands warm and dry, plus they work with touchscreens.
