Best Sunglasses For Fishing (And The Worst Sunglasses)
Not all sunglasses are created equal…
Some are polarized (which is a necessity for fishing!), some are not.
Some are glass, some are plastic.
Some are made for inshore fishing, some are made for offshore fishing.
The point is, there’s a lot that goes into choosing the right pair of sunglasses for you.
And if you don’t have the right pair specifically for you, you could:
- Lose them (for example, Wyatt’s didn’t fit right and they fell off of his face into the water)
- Miss fish that the right pair could help you see
- Cause permanent damage to your eyes because you didn’t protect them correctly.
In this podcast, I’ve got Salt Strong fishing coaches Wyatt and Mark joining me to talk all about getting the right pair of sunglasses and why it’s so important.
- Glass vs. polycarbon vs. plastic lenses
- How to choose glasses that fit
- The top mistakes anglers make when choosing sunglasses
- The best color lenses for different types of fishing (yes, this actually makes a big difference!)
- Our favorite (and least favorite) brands
- And much more

How To Choose Sunglasses For Fishing [VIDEO]
Here’s a quick recap on how to choose the right color lens for the type of fishing you’re doing:
Green and amber lens: good for inshore fishing
Yellow lens: good for low-light conditions, such as at dawn and dusk
Gray lens: all-around lens
Blue lens: good for offshore fishing
There’s a lot that goes into getting a good pair of sunglasses, right?
Here are the most important things to consider when getting a new pair:
- They’re comfortable (so you’ll actually wear them)
- They’re polarized
- They fit your face (and don’t let a ton of glare in through the sides)
Whether you get a pair that’s $25 or $250, just make sure that you have a good pair to not only help you see and catch more fish, but to also protect your eyes.
