They’ll protect your eyes from straining and the sun’s harmful rays, you’ll look great and if you’re fishing will also enable you to spot and track fish.
Check out our guide where you can learn how to pick the right pair of sunglasses.
Water ToysWater toys like tubes, lilly pads and ZUP Boards can take your day from ordinary to extraordinary and provide hours of fun. With so many to choose from, how do you know which one you’ll like the best? Lucky for you, we have some tips on how to pick the ideal water toy for you.
Yeti CoolerAs reliable as they are durable, Yeti coolers are all they’re cracked up to be. Ditch the styrofoam, gas station cooler and grab yourself a Yeti to make sure that your food and drinks stay cold all day long.
Fortress AnchorUsing a Fortress Anchor as your stern anchor will go a long way to ensuring that you have a great day on the water. It is certainly possible to simply anchor with your bow anchor, using a stern anchor ensures greater security and will hold your boat in place better.
Spend more time at the sandbar and less time trying to anchor, two anchors are better than one!
Toadfish KoozieToadfish Outfitters have come up with an ingenious koozie design that utilizes a suction cup on the bottom of their koozies. It will keep your drink in place in the event of the boat rocking or in the event of someone accidentally bumping into it.
