Vibe Kayaks Yellowfin 100 Walk-thru

Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Vibe Kayaks
Model:
Vibe Yellowfin
MSRP ($):
649.00
Length (ft):
10

The Vibe Yellowfin 100 is a lightweight, but fully equipped kayak from Vibe Kayaks. The nice thing about this kayak is that despite its shorter length, it comes standard with the Vibe Hero Framed Seat, which is very comfortable. Comfortable framed seats are typically only found on the longer kayaks, so this is definitely a plus for the Yellowfin 100, which is able to provide mobility as well as comfort. It features a rotomolded single piece polyethylene construction and features six scupper holes.

Just because the Vibe Yellowfin 100 is compact and lightweight doesn’t mean any sacrifices were made in terms of features. Anglers will be glad to hear that it comes fully equipped with four easy grip carrying handles, adjustable foot braces as well as a built-in cup holder. In terms of cargo capacity, it has two 9” sealed hatches with bag inserts that are within easy reach, two tackle tray holders as well as a rear tankwell that has adjustable bungee. The Vibe Yellowfin 100 also includes a mounting point for accessories from RAM, Scotty and Vibe.

Smaller, lighter kayaks such as this one are typically only useful for recreational use, but this one actually manages to be a decent fishing kayak too. If you prefer doing your angling in rivers, streams or ponds instead of big water, it is useful to have a very nimble kayak such as the Vibe Yellowfin 100.

Yellowfin is my go to kayak

I am very pleased with my Yellowfin. I have a 13ft Vibe but I use the Yellowfin more because of the versatility. I can one man carry in the back of my suv or easily load on top. The kayak paddles easy and is very easy to turn, I can swipe my fishing rod in the water for quick small adjustments while fishing. My big boat won't do that. The Hero seat supports my back for hours on the water. Vibe has found the perfect midsize fishing kayak between a big water boat and the 9 ft short boat. For my wallet, Vibe is the best value for kayak fishing.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Comes loaded with paddle and high quality chair
Cons:
A gear track recessed on each gunnel would be very nice.
