Top Fishing Picks for Stocking Stuffers!

The Holiday Buyer's Guide series is finally coming to a close. We've had a blast making these and really appreciate all of your ideas and support along the way! We look forward to doing more of these down the road but for now, enjoy this video on Stocking Stuffer ideas, including a bunch of baits that are on huge sales! 

In this video we choose our 8 favorite lures and accessories that are sure to brighten the day of any bass fisherman when they show up in his stocking! Below are the products shown in this video. Please use the links provided to do your shopping at Tackle Warehouse for these products (or any other item... doesn't actually have to be the item we link to). We appreciate you making it possible for us to continue doing these videos!

Top 8 Products...

1) Basstrix 6" Swimbait: The Basstrix is an amazing swimbait that has proven itself from coast to coast. With the advent of the Keitech the Basstrix's popularity has begun to wain, making them even more effective! 

2) Seaguar Fishing Line: Seaguar AbrazX and InvizX are both great lines! The entire Seaguar product line is included on the Christmas Sale so get huge savings while you can!

3) Lucky Craft RTO Squarebill: We've been talking about this bait for months as its been on a big sale, that sale got even better! Now you can get these baits for nearly 75% off! Its a great crankbait at a great price!

4) Yamamoto Senko: The Senko is a deadly bait! If you're only going to buy one, make it the 5" in Green Pumpking Black Flake. 

5) Keitech Swimbait: The swimbait that has revolutionized the game! If you haven't used them yet, you need to. The 2.8 , 3.8 , and 4.8 sizes are all killers! If you need a color to start with, try "Crystal Shad". 

6) The Whopper Plopper: The Whopper Plopper is the hottest topwater bait on the market! They're hard to get but if you manage to find one, be ready to catch some big bass! Try the 130 size in Monkey Butt or Loon if you have a choice. If you don't, take whatever color you can get!

7) Trokar Hooks: Trokar makes amazing hooks but typically the prices are high to match. They're currently on a huge sale and will save you a fortune! Hint... try the dropshot hooks. 

8) Zoom Super Fluke: The Fluke is a bait that can be fished as a topwater, a slow sinking bait, a trailer, etc. Its incredibly versatile and works on just about every fishery. If you aren't sure what to buy the fisherman in your life, its a guarunteed hit! Try " White Pearl" or "Albino".
