Paddleboard fishing, it sounds a little crazy doesn’t it? But believe us, it can be done, and it happens a lot. From our limited experience with it, it’s actually quite fun!
It’s definitely a thing. There are people who have paddleboards that are completely outfitted for fishing. It is a great way to get out on the water and do some fishing. A lot of places offer stabilizers for your paddle board that act as large chairs, so you can lean back on them while you fish.
Fishing from a paddle board has a lot of benefits. It allows you to access remote coves and areas that you might not be able to with a boat. It also allows you to approach fish in a high concentrated area without scaring them. It gives you stealth. Also, it’s more economical and environmentally friendly because you don’t have to pay for gas and you aren’t emitting carbon.
Additionally, you can fit quite a bit of gear on paddle boards before you’re at risk of capsizing them. We’ve seen paddleboards fully outfitted with a cooler, rod holders, poles, and all the other equipment necessary to have a full day’s fishing excursion.
There are a few different places that you can find paddle boards if you’d like to give it a try. One we have come across pretty consistently is Paddlers Retreat. They do a great job of comparing prices and products. They even point you in the right direction if you choose to buy one. You can also rent one if you don’t know if you’d like it. There are plenty of options to get yourself on a paddleboard!
