2017 Holiday Gift Guide (Part3): Line, Terminal Tackle, Apparel and Accessories
(Go Pro HERO 5 & HERO 6):
When it comes to action cameras GoPro pretty much still dominates, and with good
reason, their cameras are easy to use with one button simplicity and can capture
4K video both above and under the water (up to 10m). The GoPro HERO 5 Black
Edition doesn't even need a housing to go underwater and delivers 4K video, 12MP
photos, can display pictured and video on a 2" touch display and also can be
controlled via voice.
Electronics : GoPro Hero 5 and 6
camera, the HERO 6, takes things to the next level with a proprietary GP1
processor that enables the camera to double frame rates for videos, improves
image quality, improves image stabilization, and delivers superior low light
One of the
most useful accessories is the Karma grip stabilizer
TackleWarehouse carries both
the GoPro Hero 5 ($399) and the new HERO6 Black ($499) as well as a wide range
of accessories including remotes and harnesses to help you capture all your
outdoor adventures. The GoPro
Karma grip is the official stabilizer from the company and is a
great option for anglers that are capturing action and require additional
stabilization and can even be attached to the company's Karma drone for
stabilized aerial footage.
Cuda Titanium Needle Nose Pliers
(Cuda Titanium Needle Nose
Pliers): A good
pair of pliers designed specifically for anglers doesn't have to break the bank.
Cuda is known for their quality tools which offer durable construction and
excellent ergonomics. The Cuda 8" pliers are spring loaded and feature an
integrated ring splitter that makes it easy to swap out treble hooks on the
water. The pliers are constructed using a full tang carbon steel design and are

will not slip even when wet. What angler doesn't need a trusty pair of pliers?

Storage : Tackle Warehouse Angler Backpack
Storage - Shore Anglers
(Tackle Warehouse Angler
storage on the go can be a challenge but Tackle Warehouse took matters into
their own hands and have created a really good backpack at a great price. The
backpack has been completely redone with new features and improvements including
enhanced durability, stronger zippers, reinforced handles, and beefed up
In addition to
durability enhancements the redesigned TW Angler Backpack has an improved layout
with new designated pockets for all your kit, including sunglass and smartphone
pockets with plush lining to ward off any scratches.
The backpack now also includes three built in
dual pocket worm binders and two additional zip-locking worm binders that hang
from the top of the front drop down compartment for quick bait selection on the
fly. The backpack is great for moving your tackle on and off the boat and
comfortable straps make this a great choice for shore anglers that hike from one
spot to the next.

available in grey and camouflage patterns at
TackleWarehouse for $69.99 each.
Boat Storage : Daiwa Waterproof Boat Bags
Storage - Boat Anglers
(Daiwa Boat Bags):
If you are like us you have a lot of tackle and gear to move in and out of your
boat on each trip. Daiwa's new boat bags help make the process easier with a bag
that offers an immense amount of storage and excellent water resistance to keep
all your gear dry even during a deluge.
The bottom of the new
Daiwa bag is waterproof and the upper section is constructed out of durable
vinyl and held together with double reinforced stitching for additional spray
resistance. The top of the bag consists of one oversized flap that when opened
makes it easy to stow your tackle boxes and gear quickly and is sealed closed
with a corrosion resistant zipper. It just doesn't get much easier to use than
Even when fully loaded this
bag is easy to carry with foam handles on either end, straps and a Velcro-close
handle over the center and a no-slip shoulder strap. Boat spray and rain are no
match for this tackle bag and there are two options, a small and a large size,
that are available now at
TackleWarehouse for only $39.99 and $49.99 respectively.
Riley signing off with our final pick in the
optics category : Costa Del Mar Sunglasses
We keep trying different optics and yet once we are done with our tests we find
ourselves gravitating back to our personal Costas time and time again. Costa Del
Mar sunglasses are designed with the unique needs of anglers in mind and there
are so many different frame styles to choose from as well as multiple lens
materials ranging from polarized glass to polarized plastic.
Though heavier and
significantly more expensive we still prefer the Costa polarized 580 glass lens
options over plastic as the optical clarity offered by these lenses is
exceptional, and they also resist scratches better than polycarbonate as well.
TackleWarehouse has a wide range of different Costa frame and
lens options ranging from $168 to $248 dollars depending on configuration. For
most bass fishing applications we like the gray and copper lenses that perform
well in a wide range of light conditions. Some of our favorite frames are the
sleek Fisch, Fathom, and Saltbreak styles but like all sunglasses you will want
to find a pair that matches the your personal styling and personality or that of
the lucky recipient of these quality optics.
Thanks for joining us for our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide. From all of us here at
TackleTour we wish you a very Happy Holiday Season. May your lines be tight!
