  • Most Impressive Kayak Angling Catches Caught On Camera

    We have all heard about the "one that got away", which is often accompanied by very elaborate descriptions, but very little in the way of evidence. Fortunately, thanks to how cheap and readily available digital cameras are these days, it is much easier to document evidence of great catches or epic struggles while fishing.  Read More
  • Choosing The Right Fishfinder For Kayak Fishing

    In the early days of fishing, there was very little you could do except hope you picked the right spot and wait patiently for the fish to bite after casting your line. Of course, there were a couple of things you could do to improve your chances, such as using the right bait and familiarizing yourself with the area, but luck still played a big role. The arrival of fishfinders changed things a bit as suddenly anglers could find out exactly what is going on under the water without even having to get their feet wet. Read More

"First one I bought was actually for a gift for my dad. Never would have considered it for myself. Got to the car and was reading the packaging. Piqued my interest seeing how many different ways you could use it. Opened his and tried it on a few different ways while in the Cabela’s parking lot. Went back in an bought 2 for myself. I like wearing it as a balaclava in the morning to stay..."

"Have this kayak for over a year. It has exceeded my expectations for a sub $500 kayak. It paddles easily, tracks fairly good for a 10 footer. Seems stable enough unless you really dig in with the paddle. The Scotty rod holder was a nice freebie. It seems well built, I notice no flexing or substaintial wear on the boat anywhere. Would be nice if they include an anchor trolley especially as an “angler” model...."

"Products arrived incomplete, without paddle holders & with damaged seat tension cords. Difficult to contact customer service by phone or e-mail to request missing parts, & they were unable to find the product ID - requiring more calls & e-mails. Issue is still unresolved. "

" I have owned this kayak for 2 years. I really like this kayak for fishing small waters. The seat is fantastic, but check it often for loose bolts. The wheel is nice to have on solid ground. It's a good idea to pull or push the yak with both hands placed on opposite sides of the front handle, it makes it roll better without trying to tip over. I use a longer paddle which comes in handy when paddling..."

Told it is weighed before shipping and weight was correct. Lie, water weighs a lot, would have shown a difference. They wanted pictures and model number - sent Send back the kayak, I pay freight and I have..."
