5 Hot New Summer Fishing Gifts for Father's Day

SPRO’s Spin John 80 is a spybait that has a few unique features that gives the fish a different look.

Memorial Day is in our rear-view mirror; Dad will love these cool gifts.

If you’re looking for something new to give your angling-loving Dad this Father’s Day?

Here are a few of the absolute latest fishing products on the market. This is probably the first time you are hearing about them. All are made to help you catch more fish.

Columbia PFG shirt with Realtree Fishing pattern


We love our camo, even when we’re fishing. A new Columbia PFG shirt sports the Realtree Fishing pattern. It’s pretty cool to have a shirt full of tech, plus a pattern that reflects what we love. Realtree Fishing uses actual images from depth-finders to show brushpiles and bottom contours, just like you are checking out on your down-scanning sonar. We wore this shirt recently during tackle testing and were pleased with them. $50

Plano’s Rustrictor


There are rust-inhibiting tackle boxes and accessories on the market. But none that we know of have had the rust protection built into every part of the box. Enter Plano’s Rustrictor. Close the box and a vapor corrosion inhibitor fills the space and adheres to metal, making a protective barrier. It won’t give your lures a smell or a tacky feel. You can get it in several of Plano’s popular models, from 3500 to 3700 sizes. $5.99-14.99

Custom-fitted UVS100 Custom Sunscreens


The UVS100 Custom sunscreens help reduce the interior temperature and protect the vehicle interior from damaging UV rays. These sunscreens are custom fitted to your vehicle, ensuring maximum windshield coverage. Sunscreens are ideal at the boat launch, jobsite, airport or anywhere you park. This premium quality, custom patterned folding sunscreen has a silver reflective fabric on the outer side, soft felt on the inside to help protect your interior. $66

SPRO’s Spin John 80


If you’re fishing clear, pressured water, here’s a great new lure to try out. SPRO’s Spin John 80 is a spybait that has a few unique features that gives the fish a different look. While all spybaits depend on a rolling wobble on the retrieve, the Spin John 80 has a defined roll that is designed to draw a strike from suspended fish. The 80mm bait also has swivels on each side for a better hookup. $14.99

Johnny Morris CarbonLite 2.0 baitcasting reel


Bass Pro Shops upgraded their Johnny Morris CarbonLite 2.0 reel in one very noticeable way — it’s now a 8.3:1 retrieve ratio. Anglers will appreciate being able to get a lure back to boat quickly, ripping a buzzbait or taking up liner more quickly in general with this reel. $119
