You have to love it when two sports start merging together to make something new happen.
BOTE is a company that makes stand up paddle boards. For those of you not familiar with SUP, it’s a hybrid form of surfing that incorporates elements of kayaking as well.
Seeing as SUP is already a bit of a hybrid sport, adding one more thing to the mix seems pretty natural.
What BOTE has done is add a rack that has a rod holder and a spot to strap down your cooler. You can lean up against it, keep a few rods in it, and stack your tackle box on top of the cooler.
If you are worried about falling down when setting the hook, don’t be—you would be amazed at how stable SUP are when you are on them.
BOTE wasn’t the only company with a fishing ready SUP at ICAST this year, but they did do it the best. Simple changes and clever additions make this an SUP we can get behind.
