Our community members are the best!

James Sauer, one of our earliest members, has been excellent, organizing meetups for the Insiders all across the state.

As a thank you, we decided to give him a free Kaku Kahuna paddleboard.

I recently delivered it to him and while we were together we figured we might as well make a fishing trip out of it!

It was right after a cold front and the wind was picking up, so it was not exactly ideal paddleboard conditions, but we were able to get on some solid fish.

Check out the video below to learn:

  • How to make adjustments when the fish aren’t biting
  • Why you should always pay close attention to rays (you never know what else might be with them!)
  • What lures we used to catch these fish

Awesome video Luke! Props to you both on not only the great catches, but cleaning up that bobber and line as well. It’s good to see an example being set on how to be a good angler and a conservationist as well!

Also just to add, I never have fished off a SUP or considered doing so, but since I joined SS, all of the videos of you guys wading/sight fishing with them have got me EXTREMELY interested. These reports have convinced me to start saving up for one. Keep up the awesome SUP videos!
