SUP Fishing – the bite on the Baltic Sea and lakes
SUP Fishing – the new trend sport for fishing fans
“Now some butter with the fish!” Do you really want to have fun and try a new water sport? Then we have just the right tip for you: SUP Fishing.
Paddle on the waters of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and go catch some fish!
SUP Fishing combines fishing and the trendy sport of Stand Up Paddling. You move almost silently on the water with your paddle and board. When you reach a nice spot take out the anchor and the rod. The first bite won’t take long to come.
SUP fishing is not only fun in fact it also offers many other advantages. You can paddle almost silently to the fish and their territories and cast the rod 360 degrees around you. This increases your chances of success. It is also an impressive way to discover nature and train your body at the same time.
And: SUPing is a sport for everyone and it is easy to learn. After a few introductory lessons you can already start paddling. In several surf schools you can learn the necessary skills or rent the equipment.
Once you are fit in Stand Up Paddling you are ready to go. Equipped with rod and paddle it goes to the big ride. You can do trolling, fly fishing, spin fishing and mushrooming off the board. There are almost no limits to the methods.
