New Guy Intro & Usual Question
« on: February 25, 2017, 09:40:47 AM »
Hey. I'm a fisherman. I have several boats I use for fishing and 'm thinking of acquiring a SUP. I have rented several times and I enjoy the sight fishing aspect. I would use it mostly in fresh water and inshore saltwater. I like the look of the Bote boats. I am 6' 200 lbs. So, Flood, Ahab or Rackham? I am not aware of anyplace to demo these boards here in northern NJ.  Also, in my search I have stumbled upon the Engle SUP, but I can't find any reviews. Have any of you seen one of these?
Thanks.

There are a couple of Pau Hanas you might want to look at. They have a 11' fishing board called the Big EZ Angler which has all sorts of places to attach stuff. They also make it in their ricochet material which is a lot tougher than the the standard paddleboard construction. They also have a 12' ricochet board called the Endurance which isn't a specific fishing board but it has a huge amount of tie-downs too. They've got all sorts of accessories for fishing that fit the board.

I was just talking to a guy who was SUP fishing in the harbor on one of these http://www.rivierapaddlesurf.com/collections/sup-touring/products/126-fish-on
It looked plenty stable and he had 2 poles, a sit on ice chest, and was about 6'3 maybe 230 range. He was paddling along side me as we were talking. It looked like it glided pretty good too.
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.
