Blog Piece By Mike Hogan:
The best gifts are those that the giftee will actually use. Each year at the Holidays I get asked what to get fishermen for gifts. Usually it wives and mom’s of fishing buddies so I know what they have already. So it’s easy. But even if I don’t know what your fisherman has already, I do know, that serious fisherman go through lures. Lot’s of them. So in the spirit of the Holidays, I’m adding this list of 25 high quality fishing lures every fisherman can use:
