St. Croix Avid Inshore Rods

Fit for the boat or the back bays, the American-made Avid Inshore rod series is built around a lightweight, carbon-fiber blank, leading to sensitive and responsive rods that excel in fishing artificial lures for striped bass, whether jigging in deep channels or casting over sandy flats. Starting at $260

Penn Spinfisher VII Reel

The newest evolution of the reliable Spinfisher lineup touts an IPX5 waterproof rating so the gearbox and drag system are protected from corrosive salt water. The Penn Spinfisher VII Reel‘s’ rigid, full-metal body and side plate maintain alignment of the all-brass gear system. Available in standard, live-liner, long-cast, and bail-less models. Starting at $180

The Costa King Tide 6 Sunglasses pack in features like never before, with removable shields, shark-inspired venting, and no-skid hooding. Starting at $329

TAK Waterman 5-Panel Camper Hat

For the plug-tossing striper fisherman, this lightweight 5-Panel Camper Hat features a rugged-looking leather patch and an easy-to-use glide buckle closure to provide all day sun protection on the boat or the beach. $30

Rapala X-Rap Long Cast

Rip it over deep structure, twitch-and-pause it in open water, or slowly crank it in through current; however you fish it, the X-Rap Long Cast catches striped bass from the surf or from the boat. Two inline single hooks are easier on the fish than two treble hooks, and lead to safer fish handling and quicker releases. $14.49

Grundens Tourney Bib

Lightweight and equally as waterproof as their commercial-grade bibs, the athletic fit of Grundens Tourney Bibs make them a durable, flexible and comfortable choice for those warm spring or hot summer days on the boat. They are equipped with a chest and cargo pocket for easy-to-reach storage of handy tools like pliers and line nippers. $125

YETI 5-Gallon LoadOut Bucket

Whether it’s holding bait, beverages, or striper plugs and plastics, this durable 5-gallon LoadOut Bucket is far more capable of withstanding heavy loads and lugging your gear down the beach or onto the boat than the average, flimsy painters bucket. $40
