Fishing From A Standup Paddleboard (SUP)

Captain Linda Cavitt, also known as Florida Sportsman member Linda, went paddling around the Panhandle backwaters to try out her new GoPro video setup. The rig she was fishing from was a Native Watercraft Versa board, a kayak-SUP hybrid.

Notice in the video, Linda’s paddle and pushpole. “The pushpole is actually a rod blank with a few inches taken from the tip to stiffen it up,” says Linda. “I would like a new one about a foot longer though. It has the perfect flex and doubles as a stakeout pole.”

    Linda, is this pre Bote Board, or do you still use this hybrid style SUP? I'm loving my 12' Bote, but trying to figure out the best way to keep live pinfish onboard with me.
