SUP fishing offers a whole new spin on a classic passion

SUP fishing – Manufacturers are jumping on board to bring you the best.

Love to fish? Love to paddle board? You don't have to choose! There are boards especially designed for fishing that feature lots of volume for stability and are much wider than the typical SUP: up to 40" wide, 13’ long and 5" thick. Some of these boards can pack up to 400 lbs. Some are inflatable and others are hard boards.

Serious fishing boards sport receivers, and plugs to attach coolers, tackle boxes, dry bags, packs, nets or anything else that is needed—very slick. Some manufacturers provide custom builds. Choose how many rod holders you would like, or style of storage box that becomes a dual-purpose seat, unique strapping systems, fish finders and the like. 

Manufactures have thought of everything the fisher might want or need! One company, (Dragon Fly) devised a way to quickly click your paddle into a holder on your waist once you've hooked a fish. Another maker (Hooked SUP) has built a board so stable that they also market it to be used for tandem riding. It is tagged the world's most stable SUP.

The manufacturers below include a list of specifications to begin to find the right board for your SUP fishing needs. Is your reel finger twitching? See videos at the bottom.

And be sure to check out the links to fishing derbies at the bottom of the page. If you would like to post a fishing derby here write to info@standuppaddleboardingguide.com.
