  2. 2. Stand  Up  Paddle  Boarding Paddling along the shallows you can see the shadow of the board gliding across the sandy lake bottom. Its not uncommon to see a fish cruising along close to you... so why not seize the moment and cast a line out. Some of the great fishing spots arent even accessible from a boat, but with a paddleboard you can scoot right up on a fishing hole without even being noticed. With the high vantage point of stand up paddle boards, you can see the fish about as far away as you can cast. Its nearly a perfect situation.Monday, 1 August 11
  3. 3. Stand  Up  Paddle  Boarding Look for dark spots that resemble "holes", or spots that look like steep drop offs around the edge of the lake. Youll also want to take into consideration the time of day that youre planning on fishing. Early morning and late evening are the best times to catch the fish.Monday, 1 August 11
  4. 4. Stand  Up  Paddle  Boarding When getting ready to go out on the lake, grab a backpack that has an external side pocket for drinks -most do have these. Test fit your fishing pole in this little pouch... You might need to make some small modifications to get it to stay in while paddling. Then put your lures, tackle, and anything else you plan to fish with in the bag.Monday, 1 August 11
  5. 5. Stand  Up  Paddle  Boarding When you get to the lake, scope out the wind direction. The wind tends to blow the warm top water to one side of the lake... in my experiences; the fish tend to stay in the cooler water. So paddle out to a spot that looks like it might have some fish. Weed beds or underwater debris can be a good place to start.Monday, 1 August 11
  6. 6. Stand  Up  Paddle  Boarding Reach behind your head and grab the fishing pole. Get yourself steady, and cast. You may have to repeat that process a few times, but with a little skill and a lot of luck, youll hook a fish. This is the fun part... the fish will start pulling back. Sometimes, if youve got a decent fish on the end of the line, hell actually pull you around a little bit. -Really fun.Monday, 1 August 11
