Any serious angler would tell you that while you don’t necessarily need a shirt made for fishing to enjoy a day chasing bass or trout, a well-fitting, comfortable fishing shirt intentionally designed for the sport makes a huge difference.

While there are so many new brands coming out these days with performance fishing apparel, Baitium is a clear standout. Lately, it has been rising as a favorite among fishermen and fisherwomen, garnering an average rating of 4.8/5 stars on shopping platforms.

So if you’re wondering what's gotten fishing enthusiasts hooked on Baitium shirts, keep reading!


1. They’re made with recycled water bottles!

One thing that makes Baitium shirts so special is that they’re made with recycled water bottles. The innovative, soft, durable, and breathable fabric gets a new lease on life as fishing shirts instead of ending up among the 269,000 tons of plastic currently in the ocean. What’s more, Baitium gives a portion of each sale toward ocean and wildlife conservation efforts. All this is part of its commitment to sustainable fishing. Given the threat of depletion of fish stocks and the possible collapse of aquatic ecosystems, fishermen find it good to know that sustainability is a priority, not an afterthought.


2. Great fit

Fishing is a unique sport because it can be both relaxing and challenging. One moment you can be leisurely waiting for a bite, and the next, you can be summoning all your strength and stamina to reel in your catch. It’s a delicate balancing act. The last thing a fisherman wants to fuss about while playing their catch is a shirt that’s way too loose or tight. Fishermen say Baitium shirts have a nice fit, a soft but durable feel, enough breathability, and just the right amount of stretch and flex to keep up with them on your fishing adventures.



3. Designs you actually want to wear

Who doesn’t want to look great while fishing? Many fishermen certainly wouldn't mind! A thoughtfully designed shirt can give you that extra boost of confidence you need to cast or reel in more accurately. Whether their personal style leans more minimalist or they just want to show off their favorite species, fishermen appreciate Baitium’s growing range of designs. These designs are even versatile enough to take one from the beach right down to happy hour.



4. Bye, bye sunburn!

If you’d rather spend your day pursuing salmon than nursing a painful sunburn, you’d better cover up with sun-protective clothes when you’re out fishing. Baitium shirts, with their UPF material, not only make sure you’re protected from the sun’s harmful rays but also do so without sacrificing breathability and comfort.


5. Quick-drying and moisture-wicking

I sincerely hope you know this, but there’s no way around getting soaked while you’re fishing. But there is a way to keep the moisture at comfortable levels. Fishermen love Baitium shirts because they’re made of quick-drying, moisture-wicking materials, helping them feel fresh and comfortable.

Bottom line: When you’re out fishing, the fish may not care if you’re wearing a ratty old band shirt that has seen better days. But if you’re up for taking your fishing to a whole new level, Baitium’s well-made, moisture-wicking, sun-protective shirts that blend the sport with social good are going to be your best bet.

Corn as Fishing Bait: Pros, Cons, Rules, and Alternatives

The use of corn as fishing bait has been a favorite among anglers, whether pro or beginner, for quite some time. The common golden grain is a go-to for catching a variety of fish, won't burn a hole in your pocket, and can be used in a bunch of creative ways. But it’s also caused a lot of confusion and controversy among fishing enthusiasts, because of two reasons: one, some states have specific regulations in place about the use of corn as bait or in chumming, and two, because of concerns surrounding its impact to the environment and on fish.
