Get your boat ready for this year’s fishing season by stocking up on these sport fishing accessories. Sure, you already know the obvious fishing supplies you need for sport fishing like a fishing rod, bait, etc., but here we’ll highlight the boat accessories you might not already have on hand for your boat.
These boat accessories will help turn your boat into a sport fishing hub and help you catch even more fish this fishing season.
If you don’t have an outrigger kit yet, and you have a smaller boat, then you are certainly missing out. Outriggers are primarily used to create more space for your boat. An outrigger system allows your lines to go out farther in the water. Also, having your bait out farther from your boat is helpful when you go to make your turns and maneuvers, that way your lines don’t get tangled.
Reel in the fish you’ve been looking for with the help of a rod holder. Rod holders make it so that you don’t have to be holding the rod the entire time. That way you can do other tasks while having a line out, or have more lines than you have fishers in the boat. There are many different types of rod holders that you can use to help reel in more fish! Some rod holders can hold 4 rods securely, like this 4-rod aluminum rod holder. Make sure when purchasing a rod holder that you keep in mind the type of fishing rods you and your fishing buddies use because not all rod holders are designed for all types of fishing rods.
While your rod holder is allowing you to be hands-free with your fishing rod, you can clean your fish right on the spot by using a filet table on your boat. We recommend making sure that the filet table you get for your boat has drainage on the table, which will make it easier to clean. Also, most of these filet tables are easy to fold and store on your boat. Waste no time cleaning your fish by having a filet table on hand.
Knife and Plier Holder
Maybe you don’t have much room on your boat but still want to have a place to store your knife and plier set. We suggest getting a knife and plier holder set that will attach to the side of the boat. Adding a knife and plier holder to your boat will help free up some room and guarantee that you’ll be able to locate your knife and pliers quickly.
What a Catch
All these boat accessories above will help you make your boat easier and more efficient to fish in. Whether it’s fishing rod mounts, rod holder, filet tables, or knife and plier holders these fishing supplies will help your boat stay organized while out at sea so you can spend more time casting lines and reeling in fish.
