I loaded my gear on the SUP and headed out into the dark swamp tributary. I quickly found out 2 things about the SUPerFISHal, one that it would get into creeks so narrow and twisty that no normal boat could stand a chance and two that with a little care you could paddle it deadly quiet. It brought one of those goofy smiles to my face knowing that a critter had no chance of hearing me coming. With my Engel cooler on board I was able to sit comfortably and drift while listening for the wild pigs feeding in the palmettos.
After paddling a good distance up a winding creek I thought I heard a rustle in the leaves. As I scanned the surrounding area, a set of black legs showed up walking through the foliage. I was able to transition from standing and paddling to sitting and shooting without a sound. I was soon standing beside my first wild pig in several years and it was the perfect eating size. I slid it onto the deck of the SUPerFISHal and started my paddle out to meet up with my son and Rob who were hunting out of a Big Tuna.
As I rounded the bend Rob said “man that thing is a meat wagon!” I can see so many possibilities in the hunting world for the SUPerFISHal that I plan on trying out as time permits. The hard part will be getting my son to give it back so I can use it!!!
