    get him this http://www.anglersystems.com/suremarker.html if he likes to grouper fish and mark good bottom.... I am not associated with the company just bought a rod from the guy one time at a good price and good service... Or a nice large landing net or gaff like u mentioned, or even a nice cooler

    i will prolly build him a gaff that way he can use it on both boats.

    i may use one of my big j hooks i use for shark fishing for a temp gaff or a decoration and i get to try out printing decals and applying them. never did that before.

    Spend some time with him on the boat and see what you guys need or what would be nice to have. It never ends.

    he hasnt got the new boat running yet. he got a 21 foot proline for like 3400 bucks. he has to fix the trailer and then have some one go over the motor. so its gonna be a while till that boat is done.
