WG Boating - Nets, Flotation, Sonar

Blog by: Matt Snider , CO 12/8/2023
Part of Series: Winter Giveaway
There's something about being out on a boat/kayak/canoe/tube, rod in hand, a cast or more away from the hustle and bustle of the land.  I don't have a fishing vessel for you to win (maybe next year?) but I do have some prizes that will make your days on the water better. Big thanks to these partners in the 2023 FishExplorer Winter Giveaway for offering prizes!

Perfect for kayak or canoe fishing, the belt style PFD from Bombora in this year's event is comfortable and keeps you safer than strapping a full-sized life jacket to your rig in a "just in case" way. You learned about Bombora in the newcomers blog, and I want to mention them here and thank them again for this great prize that I know will make someone happy.  Two people actually! View their website, like them on Facebook, follow them on Instagram.  

The wonderful group at Deeper are on board with us again this year, a longtime friend of FishExplorer, offering their castable and small craft attachable sonar unit as a prize. While this is a great device for your kayak and inventive for shore fishers, it is amazing as an ice fishing companion.  Mine has come in handy for both lightweight backpacking trips and to have for friends that are new to the sport and don't have their own sonar. Drill an extra hole or put it in the one you're fishing, connect your phone, and watch like traditional sonar in the palm of your hand. The kit this year includes a convenient winter smartphone case to protect your gear. Read more about it on their website, on Facebook, and on Instagram

Ranger Nets
Also mentioned in the newcomers blog, this is a perfect place for a reminder on this prize.  Their nets are high quality with excellent baskets. The family-run group out of Michigan is offering two winners a pair of nets - each getting a trout net and a telescopic bass/walleye boat net perfect for long reaches and easy storage. Very glad to have them with us this year.  Visit them on their website, and check them out on Facebook and Instagram

We discussed the Reliefband, a wearable device to help treat motion sickness, in our WG camping blog, but it bears repeating here.  I am thankful to have this to offer in this event, and hope that it really helps someone out. Read more on their website, on Facebook, and on Instagram.

Good luck to all of you... don't wait around any longer, enter now.  Unless, of course you haven't become a subscriber to FxR+ then you can take a moment and subscribe to help us keep this thing going!
