The 5 Best Fishing Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a must for any fisherman. Knowing which fishing sunglasses to choose can be a difficult task. We put together a list of our favorite fishing sunglasses, based on the following criteria.

Polarization: Polarized sunglasses help prevent the reflection of light off the water. That makes polarized sunglasses a must-have for fishing. They reduce glare and help you see into the water, making it easier to spot fish.

Lens color: Different lens colors are suitable for different types of fishing. Amber lenses are good for freshwater fishing and are great for spotting fish due to the contrast. Gray lenses are suitable for saltwater fishing. Copper lenses are good for all-around fishing.

UV protection: Look for sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection. This will block Ultraviolet Radiation from the sun, this is important for protecting your eyes from harmful radiation.

Lens material: Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight and impact-resistant, making them a good choice for freshwater fishing. Saltwater can scratch up polycarbonate lenses so when saltwater fishing you should use a lens material that isn’t damaged as much like glass lenses.

Fit: Make sure the sunglasses fit your face well and stay in place while you're fishing. Look for sunglasses with rubber nose pads and temple tips for a secure fit. If you’ll be fishing from a boat, it’s a good idea to attach a sunglasses retainer so you don’t lose your sunglasses.

Durability: Fishing can be tough on gear, so look for sunglasses that are durable and can withstand exposure to water, sun, and salt.

Overall you’ll need to think about how you’ll be using the sunglasses and choose the one that’s right for you. You can check out all sunglasses here.

About Strike King

In 1964 Bill McEwen, a taxidermist in Memphis, TN, was making a single spin spinnerbait out of his garage. It became known as The New Original Strike King Bass Lure. In 1966 Charles Spence purchased Bill McEwen’s lure business and began referring to it as Strike King Lure Company. Shortly after, fellow anglers Charles Spence, Ray Murski, and Bill Dance become friends and set out together to grow the Strike King Lure Company. The trio of a lure maker, sales rep, and dominant tournament angler had a recipe for success. Today, more than 50 years later, the Strike King brand is one of the most recognized on the market. They are known for their KVD Perfect Plastics and Rage soft baits, Pro-Model XD Series and KVD 1.5 crankbaits, Tour Grade spinnerbaits, and a full host of other lures including soft baits, jigs, crankbaits, and buzzbaits.
