Pretty simple idea right? It would be almost impossible to have a successful kayak or SUP fishing trip without extra gear in a tackle tray or tackle box. Things are going to happen on the water. You’re going to get broke off by a big fish, broke off by an oyster mound or branch, lose a hook, snap your leader. Having the means to carry additional gear means more time fishing, and less time paddling back in early.There are several brands of tackle trays and tackle boxes available on the market today. They’re usually inexpensive as well, which is only an added bonus. Predominatly, brand names such as Flambeau & Plano tend to lead the pack, but there are other brands available. We’ll show you some great gift ideas on these simple products that provide immense value to anglers.
