Traditionally, when it comes to fishing kayaks you have a choice between sit-in and sit on top, each with their own pros and cons. However, if you really can’t decide between the two, then a hybrid like the Ascend H12 might help you with your dilemma. It offers the best of both worlds and the result is a kayak that makes for a superb fishing platform. The H12 is 12'0” in length, while its width measures in at 32 inches. It has an average weight of 76 lbs, but can hold up to 450 lbs. With a cockpit opening that is 53.5” long and 23.5” wide, you have plenty of space to move around. For its construction, Ascend used a rotomolded, custom-crafted tunnel hull with a stepped bow and stern keel for the H12. This means you get excellent durability, without having to sacrifice stability or maneuverability.


Inside the roomy cockpit of the H12 you’ll find adjustable foot braces, along with a removable seat that can also be adjusted. Storage is not an issue with this kayak as you get soft-storage saddle bags along with a soft-storage seat back pack. In addition, it has a bow storage compartment complete with rotomolded hatch and bungees as well as a large multipurpose stern tankwell. The stern tankwell even comes with an expandable mesh cover if you want to keep your gear secured. For your accessories the H12 has forward-cockpit, port and starboard mounting rails that can be used. Of course, the H12 also has dual flush-mounted rod holders with rod leash eyelets for your fishing rods. Lastly, this kayak has a threaded, sealed drain plug and two molded-over rubber-grip carry handles.

Overall the H12 is a great kayak for anglers who need a lot of storage space and enjoy going on overnight kayak trips. It also offers plenty of stability, so you can easily stand in it, which is another plus. Considering the price, the H12 offers plenty of value for money and should definitely not be overlooked.
