While we aren’t doing quite as cool stuff as these guys with our SUPs, Maui Jerry brought over fishing rigs this year for his annual two month trip to Haines with the goal of hooking a King Salmon.
So far the concepts of “kneel and reel” and “gaff and land” are untested, but we’re persistent and hope to get video of Jerry hooking a big King by the end of June. Stay Tuned!
If you’re interested in SUP fishing, check out Boardfisher for all the gear to rig your sweeper up right. Jerry’s rockin’ the Safari Stowaway Pack with a rod holder, gaff holder, paddle holder and plenty of space for bait, tackle and a change of underwear for when he gets dragged out to sea.
You guys ROCK! If you get any good fosh landed, let us know, we would love to post the picture and story up on our site!
