The pressure and last-minute scramble is on to get that female angler who hooked your heart the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift! Chances are she'd rather have her kayak ready to roll with cool, useful gear than wear diamonds and pearls. Here are some my favorite gift ideas and things I can't live without on the water. If you are budget minded, there are price ranges to help the piggy bank from breaking.

Psssst, ladies - these may be good ideas for your favorite guy, too! Chances are he's got most of it already, but you never know!


Fish Grip

Fish lip gripper. The Norton "Fish Grip" comes in a range of colors - lots of ladies go for the hot pink!

Boomerang The Snip

Boomerang Tool "Snips" w/LED. These handy tools cut through braid like butter! They also have a retractable cable, so you can attach it to your tackle bag or life vest and it won't get lost. The LED light is very handy for low-light or nighttime rigging.

You could always get her both of these items!

$40 range

EGO Small Rubber Net

A net. Some nets are better suited for kayaks. I have the EGO "Small Rubber" net and I think it's a perfect size for women

$50 range

Berkley 7 Precision Grip Aluminum Fishing Pliers

A good pair of pliers. Whether you use it for removing hooks, rigging, or mounting hardware on your kayak, I consider pliers a must! A pair that has replaceable jaws, like the Berkley “7" Precision Grip Aluminum Fishing Pliers”, is nice because over time they can rust or get worn down.


YakAttack ParkNPole

A 6’-8’ “ParkNPole” by YakAttack. It’s something you may not need every outing, but I still think it’s great having one on board.



A comfy seat. Depending on her boat and time she spends on the water, she may want something a little nicer for her tush. Skwoosh makes different variations of seats that may keep her in the seat longer, giving you more time to fish too!



GoPro or another type of small, mountable HD camera. There are many on the market, so do your homework on which is right for your gal. Plus, she won't ask to borrow yours!

Holly Jones

Holly started fishing at the age of 5 in Annapolis, Maryland where she grew up. Her dad taught her how to kayak soon after, but it wasn't until the Charleston, South Carolina Boondoggle she finally merged the two together. Holly, her husband and two young children now live in Panama City, Florida and hit the water to kayak fish, as a family, every chance they get. When she isn't fishing she loves to work out at the gym, volunteer at her children's school and stay busy as a stay at home mom. Prior to becoming a stay at home mom, she worked as a Herpetologist at Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina. She loves to educate people about snakes, venomous species in particular. Any reptile questions, feel free to ask away!
