Gear Up for Spring Fishing With These 5 Things

Spring fishing is upon us. What do you need to add to your gear wish list?

Whether chasing steelhead or bass, all anglers know they better gear up for success.

These spring fishing gear choices will help you land a lunker.

1. A dry spot to sit

Many anglers carry a trusty bucket for their catch. Top that bucket with a comfortable seat like the H.T. Enterprises Polar Swivel Bucket Seat. Now that bucket doubles as a great spot to sit, and keep your keister out of the mud.

2. Nothing beats live bait

Face it, we all love our fancy lures, but when the bites get weak we break out the live bait. In early spring, keeping the bait warm enough to be lively can be a problem. Pick up a Frabill Insulated Bait Bucket and keep the minnows happy on the coldest days.

3. Protect your rods and reels

During transportation, your favorite fishing rods and reels may incur some damage. It's best to protect your investment with a case like the Guide Gear Rod and Reel Case. With a shoulder strap sling them and have more hands to carry your gear.

4. Carry your gear in one handy bag

The Okeechobee Fats T1200 Large Tackle Bag has plenty of room for your tackle and basically any other items you'd need. This way you won't have to rummage through an old tackle box when the fish are biting.

5. Don't fear the rain

Your spring fishing trip might start out with blue skies, but weather changes fast. Be prepared for rain with the Guide Gear Men's Packable Rain Suit. You can pack it down small, but it is worth quite a bit in a spring downpour.
