Paddleboard Fishing Video

San Diego anglers Al and Christie Parker sent me this video they shot yesterday on the flats north of Matlacha. They were fishing from a pair of C4 paddleboards that they rented for the week from Florida Paddlesports. Al was casting a white fluke rigged on a 1/4 jig head along the mangroves when he nailed a nice slot sized redfish.

Paddleboards are a blast to fish from and it's a lot easier than you might think.  I tried it for the first time a few months ago and not only did I manage to stay dry the entire time, I also landed a 22 inch redfish using a fly rod whick I wrote a post about here.  Give it a try sometime.
