Trinidad Fishing
MSRP ($):

BIC has a couple of fishing kayaks that are big enough to seat two people and the Trinidad is one of them. In fact, at 11'9” in length, the Trinidad is big enough to comfortably seat two people as well as one child. The Trinidad is also a very versatile kayak and will be able to get you to where you need to go with ease. Since it is 33.1” wide and has a flat hull design, this kayak also offers great stability. Thanks to the hull design you’ll find that the Trinidad offers minimal water draught, which is good news for anyone navigating shallow waters. Although it only weighs 65 pounds, this kayak can handle a maximum load of up to 440 pounds.

A good fishing kayak should offer more than just maneuverability and stability, but the Trinidad doesn’t disappoint in this regard. It has ample storage space with forward and rear round hatches. Both of these are watertight and are conveniently placed between the legs of paddlers to allow for easy access. For larger items, the Trinidad has a wide rear storage area, complete with elasticated straps to secure equipment.

One area where the Trinidad falters a bit is with comfort. Some anglers enjoy spending hours out on the water and the seats in this kayak might be ergonomic and anti-slip, but they could definitely have been a bit more comfortable. The same goes for the molded foot rests, which are all the same size. Additionally, the double rod rack that is found in the center of the kayak is placed a bit inconveniently and might get in the way of your paddle if you are not careful. This is less of a concern if you fit an electric motor to the Trinidad, but still worth mentioning.

The Trinidad was designed to be sturdy, but also environmentally friendly. It has a tough TST thermoformed construction, but is 100% recyclable at the end of its life. To help extend the life of the kayak, it has replaceable, removable rear protectors. Bow and stern carry handles make it easier to transport the Trinidad and it was also designed to stack easily, which is a plus for those who want multiple fishing kayaks, but have limited storage space. In the event that you do accidentally fall overboard, the integral survival lines on this kayak will make it easier to get back on board safely.

While there are better options available in the sub $1000 price range for solo anglers, the Trinidad isn’t a bad option for those who regularly want to take a friend or child along on the water. It is a decent fishing kayak, but bear in mind that there are a couple of issues that could be a deal-breaker for some people.
