Prepare for the big catch with Big 5 Sporting Goods’ assortment of fishing gear, tackle, inflatable boats and apparel. Whether you are taking your young angler fishing for the first time at the lake or are a veteran saltwater fisherman with all the tricks of the trade, you can find the equipment you need.
In order to bring home the catch of the day, you need the proper fishing equipment. All anglers - whether you fish in freshwater or saltwater - need to start with a solid fishing rod. Cast your line far and wide with a spinning or baitcasting rod. In addition to a solid fishing rod, you need a dependable fishing reel to increase the distance and accuracy of your cast and to help with line retrieval. Use a spinning or baitcasting reel with a drag mechanism to reel in your catch. For your next fishing trip, shop our selection of competitively priced freshwater and saltwater rod and reel combos that let you cast right into the fishing action.
Fill up your tackle box with bait, lures, line and accessories in order to catch the big one. Use your preferred bait or lures to attract the biting catfish, trout or bass. Switch between monofilament and braided line depending on the fish you are casting for.
Make the most of your next fishing trip with an affordable kayak or inflatable boat. Row to the middle of the lake on a multi-person boat or kayak with friends or family and enjoy the day while waiting for fish to bite. Find what you need to get on the water including inflatable boat kits, budget friendly kayaks, paddles and oars at Big 5 Sporting Goods.
Ensure you have the apparel and footwear essentials for an enjoyable day of fishing. Get up to your knees in water for fly fishing with fishing boots and waders. Keep additional lures and angling supplies close at hand in a multi pocket fishing vest. And after you’ve reeled in the catch, protect your hands with gloves designed for handling fish.
The fish are out there, so get outfitted now. Shop the wide selection of fishing reels, rods, combos, tackle and gear from some of your favorite brands at Big 5 Sporting Goods including SHIMANO, Shakespeare, Sabre and more.
