Paddleboard fishing safety 101

With paddleboarding becoming more popular in the area, fishing while paddleboarding is up and coming too. Paddleboarding is very similar to surfing, however, the user pushes the board along with a giant paddle rather than with their arms and legs. The activity can be a great workout and riders can also fish while enjoying the water. Fishing, however, can make standing on a paddleboard more difficult which is why Door County Conservation Warden Christopher Kratcha says riders need to know their boards before trying anything new.



According to the Kratcha, to ensure maximum safety riders should always wear their life jackets while out on the water and not just have it along.
