If you have a man in your life who enjoys spending time on Lowcountry waterways, he’ll appreciate new equipment that fuels his passion.

  1. Crabbing is a special part of living in Charleston. Whether he’s experienced in catching crabs or eager to try something new, the crab trap makes a great gift. Toss the trap off the dock and collect it after a day of boating or fishing. (Make sure you know the saltwater fishing regulations before you drop your crab trap into the water.)
  2. Any level of fisherman will be excited about the Penn Battle II Spinning Combo, which features the Penn Battle II Spinning reel that has full metal body and rotor. This rod and reel combo has a machined and anodized aluminum Superline Spool that allows anglers to tie superlines directly to the spool without backing. This combo features a graphite composite Battle rod with aluminum oxide guides.
  3. A more experienced angler most certainly needs a Boga Grip for capturing precision fish weights right on the side of the boat. This tool will encompass the lower jawbone of most fresh and saltwater fish so weighing fish up to 60 pounds is quick, easy and safe.

    The Boga Grip is compact and great for those catch-and-release photos. Operate the tool with one hand, but be sure to attach a float. This device is heavy so if it goes overboard, it’s gone. Plus, the Boga Grip is a great investment; it’s well made so your favorite fisherman gets years of use.

Any outdoorsman will appreciate the chance to try out a new toy on the water. So indulge his passion and then get ready for all his new fishing stories, including tales of the one that “got away.”
