Paddle Board Fishing- Nothing Like It

Paddle board fishing requires an angler to consider many elements that otherwise would not factor in to a day of fishing. When planning your paddle board fishing trip, you must consider the limits of your stamina, how far you can paddle round-trip from the ramp. When you rig the night before you must consider the weight of your gear, access to your essentials, and functionality of each piece that you bring. Depending on where you are paddling, the weather you may encounter, the tide, current, or water depth, you will bring specialty items to help you deal with each. When you load up your vehicle in the morning, you must do so in a manner that lets you get the board to and from the water quickly and efficiently. When you do start fishing, you must factor in the direction your board is drifting, how quickly you can go from paddle to rod, how much drag to use when a big fish starts to tow you around, and how to keep a fish from dragging you into the mangroves. These are some of the challenges, all easily surmountable with a little planning and practice.
