Start of the Season

Classic Accessories Fish SALE!

What could be better than starting off the FIRST DAY OF SPRING? Oh yeah, and it’s also the start to one of our other favorite seasons …. Fishing!

It’s that time when Spring hits the air and some eyes are only on the water. It’s gear time and we know it all to well. A trip out to the garage to take stock in your tackle. Line, reels, waders, boat, flies … wait, you read that too right. Boat? If an inflatable pontoon boat or float tube isn’t already on your check list for this season – well the wait is over …

This season is your season! We are having a HUGE Start of the Season Sale on ALL of our Pontoon Boats and Float Tubes right now through April 15th, no code needed. (It’s the BIG  one … and that’s no tall fishing tale.)

The BIG Fish Sale!

Colorado Pontoon Boat Classic Accessories

One of the biggest benefits of having an inflatable pontoon boat or float tube is the ease of them. They don’t eat up valuable garage space in the boring off-season, they are simple to assemble either at home or water-side and they get you ON the water and away from the crowd on the shores. Each of our designs have plenty of storage on the boat and they cost a fraction of what you would spend on a fishing boat. Our pontoon boats and float tubes are one of our top sellers and top reviewed products.

Inflatableguides.com says this about our pontoon boats:
(They are) “Everything an avid fisherman would want. With all the storage capabilities, there’s no need to worry about not being able to bring all the gear with you. Even with all the gear packed, you will most likely have storage space left. The smart anchor system allows you to stay in your favorite spot without drifting away, something which we really enjoyed while we were out fishing.”

Float Tubes by Classic Accessories

From pontoon boats to the smaller float tubes, we have the right inflatable for your next fishing trip for any angler, any age, any size and any price range.

One of our favorite sites to visit is Take Me Fishing where you can search by location on where are the best places to fish, boat, get licenses, download regulations, etc. There is even a page designated to FREE fishing days!

Fishing around the USWe know opening day is already here for those lucky enough for year-round fishing. We however are counting down the days, like many of the states above, to the start of the season.

Top 10 Games

Backyard Fun

Autumn is officially here and what a Summer it was! We have compiled a list of our Top 10 Backyard Games this past season. If most of these games aren’t on the deep sale aisles some of them are completely DIY. What better way to spend rainy afternoons or weekends inside making fun games for next Summer? Have them ready for the first sunny BBQ with friends and family, or if you’re lucky enough to still have warm weekends in your forecast, go grab some paint and get creative!

Here’s our list of the best Summer games with quick links below for sales or How-To’s:

DIY Jenga
Pam Garrison’s colorful Jenga post-share of a Beautiful Mess.

Our #2 comes from Maria Provenzano via the Hallmark Channel for a quick and easy how-to for Balloon Dart Board. We suggest filling them up and making it a water balloon game for an even bigger splash!

Four in a row
Giant Four-in-a-Row comes from our friends over The Home Depot where you can shop their handmade project here.

Dominos
Oversized dominoes are always fun with their high contrast and geometric patterns. This version comes from mariage.com as a backyard reception game.

Twister
This highly Pinned Twister game is fun for kids of all ages! You can even spray paint in different colors for your favorite teams, holidays, etc. Stay true to the Twister colors and simply bring the game’s spinning wheel outside. Spray paint more circles for even more players.
RingToss

Bring our your fair game with an oldie-but-a-goodie: ring toss! You can collect all sorts of sizes and shapes and designate different points. Kristi from I Should Be Mopping the Floor (great blog!) gives a vintage take on the classic game in her how-to here.

Tic-Tac-Toe DIY
So many variations of this game are out there. Our favorite is right from Taryn at tarynwhiteaker.com where she mixes neutral stones and a simple walnut stained board to bring one of our favorite games outside. Here is her How-To for the Tic-Tac-Toe project.

Ladder Golf
Amazon has great offers on ladder golf that is perfect for any backyard in various styles and finishes like this ladder golf toss by Beach Bums.

Bean Bag Toss

Across the board favorite game is the bean bag toss or cornhole to some folks.
Check out how the DIY Network spins this game here.

Lawn Chutes

Our last game (in no particular order) is Lawn Chutes and we recommend this all-in-one piece set from Etsy’s 5-star reviewed shop: The UndergroundShop

What are your favorite backyard games to play?

5-Stars


Blue skies and clear waters are calling. Summer temps have hit and while boaters hit their favorite launches, we see anglers heading towards higher elevations. Trying to beat out the warmer waters with sluggish fish, late spring and early summer devotees know they have to adapt if they want to reel in the big one.

We have been getting some really great reviews on our best selling Colorado Pontoon Boats from this year’s seasons so far. Colorado, Colorado XT and Colorado XTS to be exact.

‘drlrhodes’ from Chuckey, TN gives a 5-star review:   “Received my Pontoon boat 3 months ago absolutely love it. Great company to deal with, Back their products very well. Free shipping a plus and 15% off original price being a loyalty member is just another perk. I am asked every time I take it out where I got it. Excellent product!

We love to hear from anglers and we love to see how the boats perform as well.
Check out some of our favorites from our customers:

It never gets old when you see your products out in the “real world” and National Geographic aired one project we are very proud to be apart of last week. While watching National Geographic’s ‘Earth Live’ the other day, they had a live camera mounted on “snot-bots” while researchers where collecting data from whales. Talk about a go-anywhere-pro right?

We were able to partner up with Iain Kerr not so long ago when his project took off. (no pun intended) The CEO of Ocean Alliance has been proving since 1971 that you don’t have to harm whales to learn about whales. So what you may ask does Classic Accessories Pontoon Boats have to do with whale research? Iain and his crew used our Colorado XT to act as “whales” as they tested their snot-bots out. In essence, the snot-bots would hover over the whales and collect the “blow” from the blowholes as they surfaced.

Check out the video below:

They were able to collect stress hormones, toxins and DNA of the whales in a non-intrusive manner. Iain explains, “Most of the ways these hormones are collected actually stresses the animals, the snot bots are a way to collect the data from the whales without them even knowing.

After many successful launches and collections, our Colorado XT Pontoon Boat also acted as a launch pad for the drones so that they didn’t need to fly so far from the research ship to the whale pod. It’s great to know the program is off and running and collecting data on the health of whales.

We would love to see where your Classic Accessories Pontoon Boat takes you this season! Send us photos, tag us online, show us your best catch or share your biggest fishing story.

We hope one of our inflatable pontoon boats or float tubes makes it way into your fishing season this year – from walleyes to whales!

Kayaks in the Snow

It’s the first week of January and it’s been FREEZING. Crystal clear 16 degree mornings have been the norm for awhile here in the South Seattle area. So when two of our designers got the chance to go outside today, they put on hats and gloves and ventured out to Issaquah to Kayak Academy to do some fittings.
20170106_110516_2
20170106_113433 20170106_110509

The first thing you think of isn’t kayaking when there is left over snow on the ground? No rest for the weary, but more importantly driven, designers Jake Sornsin and Gail Foster. We were lucky to find a kayak shop open at this time of year. As we say, off season is our season and the kind folks at Kayak Adventure let us fit countless kayaks and some canoes with our new covers we have lined up this year. We always are looking to find the perfect fit and this is just one way we do it.

Although Jake’s dog Tiffany gets to stay warm while he maneuvers kayaks off their stacks onto frozen ground:

Above and beyond for these two today. I think an afternoon hot chocolate is in order.

Special thanks to Kayak Adventures for letting us visit you on this freezing winter day! Check them out for lessons and to shop all their gear at www.kayakacademy.com

Labor Day Love

We are celebrating Labor Day early this year, as in today – the Friday before!
Labor Day always brings a bitter-sweet close to a fun and busy Summer filled with memories and new favorite places. It can be the last trip with the boat for the year with lazy sunny afternoons that grow shorter every day.
LaborDayCA_1
Maybe it’s the last trail ride of the season where you take off as far as the sun lets you go.

LaborDayCA_5

This is the last long weekend of the Summer to get that last camp in. The roads will be crazy, but it’s the memories of the time getting there and spent around camp that will go down in your photobooks.

LaborDayCA_3a
Or maybe it’s the last round of golf all the guys can get together for an earlier Tee Time than Twilight. LaborDayCA_4
Maybe instead of ending a season, you are looking forward to game days with the BBQ!
LaborDayCA_2a

Whether you are ending your favorite season, or looking to forward to it, we wish you
a happy and safe Labor Day filled with new memories and favorite places.
Off Season is our season … and every one in between. Get 20% off all purchases at www.classicaccessories.com NOW through Labor Day.

A trip with the Colorado

The Colorado is one of our best selling inflatable pontoon boats we carry. It’s a highly rated 9 foot high-capacity with padded/ folding seat designed to get you on the water and away from the crowd.

We wanted to thank Steve from Bel Air, Maryland for sending us his photos of his latest trip with two Colorados. Here’s what Steve shared with us:

“I had a fantastic trip with my Colorado.  I honestly couldn’t be happier that I purchased it.  It allows me to go places others only wished they could.  It always turns heads and has people always asking “what is that?”. I love that it has such an extreme amount of storage as well.  I can hold everything I need including my lunch on longer outings. Thanks to Classic Accessories I’ll never be in need of another boat. Here are some photos of my recent trip.”

We are sharing the fishing season love with 20% off our pontoon boats with discount code: 20fishing at checkout NOW through May 14th. Start your fly fishing season with 20% off today and get on the water!

Check out our short How-To assemble video with our in-house designer Lane, here.
