There were a ton of fishing accessories at this year’s iCast 2014 show for the kayak and SUP angling enthusiast.  New coolers, mounting hardware for both kayaks and SUP’s, tools to make fishing that much more enjoyable.  Here’s a look at some of the amazing new products out that really caught our attention.

 Grizzly Coolers

Back in the day, I’m not so sure we’d have classified coolers as part of fishing accessories, but it’s definitely not the case these days.  Anglers use coolers as standing platforms on kayak, as well as seats on SUP’s now, so coolers are definitely fishing accessories.  We’ve used Grizzly Coolers for some time now on both our kayaks and SUP’s. We’ll focus on the Grizzly 40 cooler, as we think it’s perfect for putting on your SUP.

Lit Coolers

A cooler’s performance shouldn’t end when the sun goes down! Patent-pending Night-Sight ® technology fully illuminates the contents of your cooler with an unbelievably bright, removable/rechargeable LED liner. Exclusive, patent-pending logo plate and windowallow for endless personal customization as well as corporate and collegiate licensing opportunities. Tough is an understatement for Lit Coolers! Heavy-duty roto-molded construction means this cooler is built to last. Built-in anchor points mean you don’t need an accessory in order to attach a ratchet strap hook or tie down. Ice retention for days is an obvious requirement, but Lit Coolers go one step further with a 2 ½ inch thick lid and easy release rubber seal to ensure the goods stay chilled. Oversized rubber feet provide greater ground clearance and stronger grip on smooth or wet surfaces.
Lit Coolers will be available in white, gray, and sage and have the option of a 22 qt., 32 qt., 52 qt., or 72 qt. cooler.
