For those who love to be out on the water in the hopes of catching a fish, there is now a new way to enjoy the outdoor activity. Stand up paddleboard (SUP) fishing is the newest trend and is great for both beginner and experienced fishermen. Decking out a paddleboard to do some angling is as fun as it is to get a regular boat ready. A paddler can take along anything they need for a great time out on the water.
Deck out your SUP to match any fishing boat
Stand up paddleboard fishing accessories include mounts for rod holders, trays for bait, downriggers, fish finders, and anything else you need for a great fishing adventure. There are lots of advantages to SUP fishing that make your search to catch the big one a lot of fun!
Pack a deck cooler bag to take with you out on the water.
Great Things About Stand Up Paddleboard Fishing
- Inflatable paddleboards are simple to transport compared to other fishing vessels. While you have to haul a boat with a trailer and launch it every time you want to move to a new body of water, SUPs are much more convenient. And, inflatable SUPs are even easier to handle than hard SUPs because they are so compact, lightweight, and durable. SUPs can easily be loaded into your car or truck and moved from place to place. Some even come with a roller backpack, making hiking with your SUP possible. That way you get to that special fishing spot that may not be reachable by car.
- The flexibility of SUPs means you can fish almost anywhere. Unlike a boat, a SUP can navigate shallow waters and quickly reach spots that are more secluded with ease.SUPs are agile and fit into fishing spots where a regular boat or dingy won’t be able to reach.
- Being on a SUP gives you a lot more freedom to move around and offers a good field of vision to see any fish that may be near you. Because of the small size of the board, there is less in the way that can obstruct your movement and obscure line of sight.
- Unlike the noise of a running motor, paddleboards are silent since they use muscle power to skim along the top of the water. You won’t scare away the fish with propellers or large churns of water.
- If you are used to being out on the water, you know that standing up in a smaller boat can easily throw the whole vessel off balance. A SUP on the other hand is built to stand up on so you cast properly. You will already be accustomed to the board and how to balance so casting should not be an issue. Some SUPs can be upgraded with a kayak seat. If you’re out for a long day one of these will let you sit back and relax while you fish.
