If you’re anything like me, there’s never anything wrong with getting some new fishing lures to test out. My kids often pick out fishing lures to put into my Christmas stocking, which is pretty awesome in my book. Fishing lures make great stocking stuffers, and it’s a great feeling when the kids can’t wait to tell you what they picked out for you.
As anglers we’re pretty serious about our fishing lures. We all have our favorite brand that we prefer. We all have that one special color that we have to have when we’re out on the water chasing our favorite species of fish. I think you’d also be hard-pressed to find an angler who wouldn’t get all giddy about finding a stocking chock full of fishing lures on Christmas morning. We’ll pick out a few of our favorite fishing lures from some of our favorite fishing lure companies to share with you, so hit up your local tackle shop and get that stocking stuffed!
Stocking Stuffer Ideas
Bass Assassin has been a favorite soft plastic lure of mine for years, and for good reason, they work! The curly shad in the chicken on a chain color is easily one of my most used lures. At only $4.99 for a pack of 10, it’s quality and quantity all rolled up into one. There are several colors and styles to choose from with Bass Assassin, so pick up a few packs and fill your stocking.
Savage Gear burst onto the scene a few years ago and are constantly making splashes, both on the water and at trade shows. With both freshwater and saltwater lures, there’s definitely something that you’ll fall in love with. We’ve used the Manic Shrimp with great success for shallow water redfish, and can’t wait to try out the 3D Hollow Frog for some big bass soon! Both styles of lures will definitely put a huge smile on your loved one’s face when the find these in their stocking!
Anglers who’ve used the VuDu Shrimp from Egret Baits all swear by them! Durable, and built to last, the VuDu Shrimp are perfect when targeting redfish and trout in your favorite inshore flats and creeks. The New Jumbo VuDu Shrimp is 4 inches long and comes rigged with a 1/4 oz jig ready to fish.
It’s become pretty amazing how lifelike our fishing lures have become. Live Target Lures were the first to bring out amazing graphics and give our lures a lifelike feel. The baitball lures took the fishing world by storm a few years back, and they still amaze. The Yearling Rattlebait and the Yellow Perch Jerkbait both will have your angler drooling once they open their stocking to find these beauties inside!
