Tandem kayaks are not for everyone, but if you have a partner or friend who you don’t mind spending a lot of time with they can be a good investment. Of course, a good tandem kayak should also be designed in such a way that a solo paddler can handle it on their own. One such option is the UH-TK181 by Brooklyn Kayak Company. Tis sit on top tandem kayak not only has enough space for you and your companion, but also the capacity to stow away all of your gear. In addition, it is nimble enough that you don’t have to always on a friend to come along as it can be used solo as well.

Two anglers require a lot of fishing rod holders, so it’s a good thing that the UH-TK181 delivers seven of them. Four of these rod holders are flush-mounted in order to provide stability while the other three are adjustable. If you like to get multiple lines in the water at once, then this is the kayak to get. Tandem kayaks often have to sacrifice storage space, but the TK181 has a decent sized rear storage compartment where you can secure your gear using the bungee tie-downs. For smaller items, such as keys, phones and wallets, the TK181 also has watertight storage compartments that can be found right at the feet of each angler. You don’t have to worry about losing your paddle when handling your rod either as the TK181 has two secure paddle rests.

When empty this 12'5” kayak has a hull weight of approximately 68lbs, while it’s maximum load capacity is in the range of 450 lbs. It’s not the lightest kayak on the market for its size, but four comfortable carrying handles take some of the strain out of carrying it around. The tracking is really good and maneuvering the kayak is easy, even when you are paddling on your own. The stability is also very good as this kayak is 33 inches wide, so it makes for a good fishing platform. The TK181 can also be found for sale in the region of a thousand dollars, so while it’s not the cheapest kayak on the market, it is quite affordable for a tandem and covers all the basics you need to get out and get fishing.
