Why SUP Fishing is the Coolest Thing Ever

HAS ANY BODY SEEN MY FISHING POLE?

If you like to fish (and who doesn’t, right?) then you absolutely have to try fishing from your iROCKER stand up paddle board.

Seriously.

For one thing, a SUP board is way better than a boat and even a standard kayak for navigating super-shallow flats. Of course, your iROCKER converts to a kayak and back to a SUP in seconds, so there’s a double bonus. (You’re welcome.)

Another reason you fishermen and women will want to try fishing from your iROCKER is that it’s unbelievably quiet under paddle. The fish won’t even know you’re coming!

But the best thing is the view. You can see directly under your stand up paddle board, getting you as close to the fish as humanly possible without being in the water. Advantage: Human.

 

Gear Up

Now, some gear junkies might tell you that you need to invest in all kinds of accessories to get your iROCKER ready for fishing. Don’t believe it.

You can have a great day of fishing from your iROCKER with your standard gear and a good pole. However, like any other sport, SUP fishing can be best experienced with some special equipment.

For instance, you’re probably going to want an attachable rod holder, right? You’ll also want a bait holder, and can use your iROCKER Cooler Deck Bag for this with no problem. If that freaks you out a little, you can order a second bag online and keep your bait separate from you snacks.

If you’re going to buy just one thing to switch up your standard SUP sesh for a little fishing SUP, you’ve got to get an attachable fishing rack, which doubles as a gear holder AND a rod holder, and that’s pretty sweet.

 

Do Your Homework

No investment in fishing gear makes up for good old-fashioned fishing know-how. Figure out where the best fishing spots are by talking to your local experts. You might be surprised how helpful the guys at the tackle store are with letting you know where to go (and not) to find the best fish.

You also should follow some avid SUP fishers online. They always have a cooler full of clever tips and tricks for catching the big one and having a great time. This guy from SaltStrong figured out a way to attach two rods to his cooler, which does triple-duty as a bait holder and live well.
