Stand-up paddleboard (SUP) fishing has exploded in popularity, and for good reason. It's a unique blend of serenity and sport, offering anglers access to hidden honey holes and a workout while they're at it. But with a new year comes a wave of new gear, and in our most recent year is no different. Let's dive into the hottest SUP fishing accessories that will have you reeling in excitement:

Tech that Casts a Line:

  • Fish finders with SUP mounts: Imagine paddling effortlessly towards hidden fish havens guided by real-time sonar! Brands like Garmin and Lowrance are now offering SUP-specific mounts for their fish finders,transforming your board into a high-tech fishing machine.
  • Waterproof phone cases with rod holders: Never miss a bite with waterproof phone cases that double as rod holders. Look for features like sunshades and glare-resistant screens for optimal use on the water.
  • Smart cooler bags: Pack your lunch and keep your catch chilled with smart cooler bags that connect to your phone. They'll monitor temperature, recommend recipes based on your catch, and even hail a ride back when your cooler starts getting light (and your belly full).

Gear that Reels You In:

  • Retractable anchors: Forget bulky anchors and tangled lines. Retractable anchors, like the new Minn Kota Aqua Anchor, deploy and retrieve effortlessly, keeping your SUP stable even in choppy waters.
  • Magnetic tackle trays: Keep your hooks, lures, and swivels organized and within reach with magnetic tackle trays. They stick to your board's metal D-rings, preventing spills and tangled messes.
  • Rod leashes with quick-release: Don't let a surprise catch send your prized possession overboard! Invest in a rod leash with a quick-release mechanism that allows you to detach it instantly if needed.

Comfort and Convenience:

  • Inflatable fishing chairs: Take a break from standing with inflatable fishing chairs that attach to your SUP's deck rings. Look for ones with built-in storage compartments for extra convenience.
  • Paddle holders with fishing rod attachments: Free up your hands and keep your paddle secure with paddle holders that also transform into fishing rod holders. You'll have everything you need within arm's reach.
  • Removable deck pads: Give your feet a break and enhance your grip with removable deck pads. Choose non-slip materials that are easy to clean and store.

Remember: Before you hit the water, always check local regulations regarding SUP fishing and ensure you have the proper safety gear, including a life jacket and whistle.

With these innovative accessories, 2024 is shaping up to be the year your SUP fishing adventures reach new heights (or depths, rather). So, grab your board, gear up, and get ready to conquer the calm waters in style!

Update on fishing accessories and what is evolving

  • Fish finders specifically designed for SUPs: These fish finders are smaller and lighter than traditional fish finders, making them more portable and easier to mount on a SUP. Some new models even come with built-in batteries, so you don't have to worry about finding an outlet to charge them.
  • SUP-specific coolers: These coolers are designed to be mounted on a SUP and are often insulated to keep your food and drinks cold all day long. Some models even come with built-in cup holders and bottle openers.
  • Paddleboard seats: These seats can be attached to your SUP to make it more comfortable to sit and fish for long periods of time. Some models even have built-in storage compartments for your fishing gear.
  • Electric SUPs: Electric SUPs are becoming increasingly popular for fishing, as they allow you to cover more water and conserve your energy for casting and reeling in fish. Some models even come with built-in fish finders and coolers.
  • Stand-up paddleboard (SUP) PFDs: These PFDs are designed to be comfortable and allow for a full range of motion while paddling and fishing. Some models even have built-in features like fishing rod holders and storage pockets.
