#1 Deeper PRO+ Smart Sonar GPS Portable Wireless Wi-Fi Fish Finder
Many anglers such as myself either can't afford a boat or choose not to use a boat when fishing which is the most common way individuals have built-in fish finder technology. I recently purchased one of these for myself and it's incredible having the same results and information at your fingertips with just a simple cast out into the water.
Not to mention it's below the price point of most boats included fish finder technology. In a quick nutshell, you can cast the device into the water, retrieve it and have plenty of useful information ready to go.

The Sportfisher Black is the watch that all anglers have been waiting for. Created by anglers, for anglers, this watch was designed by Hook+Gaff to be the ultimate watch for the hard-core angler who is out on the water during all hours of the day and night.
The Sportfisher Black is Hook+Gaff’s first model to utilize 24-hour illumination tritium technology that continuously illuminates the dial’s hour markers and hands.

#6 Waxhead Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Stick
Fishermen love this sunscreen because it doesn’t stink up their lures with fake coconut smell and it doesn’t deteriorate their fishing rods/lines like chemical sunscreens.
All our mineral sunscreens have a rating of 1 from EWG and are some of the safest and most effective sunscreens available — you can’t get anything healthier (for people or planet) that actually works!
