One of the most important elements of a good fishing kayak is stability, but all too often this comes at the cost of tracking, which leaves you with a kayak that is very slow and cumbersome in the water. The Third Coast Avalon 120 is a fishing kayak that offers the best of both worlds with great tracking as well as plenty of stability. This sit-on-top fishing kayak is widely available at a very wallet friendly price and has plenty to offer to newcomers to the hobby or anglers looking for a cheaper alternative to the bigger brands.

 

The Avalon 120 weighs 68 lbs and has a total length of 12' 3". It is 30" wide and offers a maximum carrying capacity of about 350 lbs. Third Coast designed the kayak to track well on just about any river, stream or lake, which is great for anglers who want something nimble out on the water. One of the best features of the Avalon 120, aside from the price, is the amount of back support that it offers. Many of the cheap fishing kayaks on the market suffer from poor seats that can leave you feeling stiff and sore after only a few hours of fishing, which is obviously not very pleasant. The Avalon 120 on the other hand, offers a seating system that has a no slip bottom, along with plush upper back cushioning. The seat has pull straps and it is adjustable, while the kayak also features an adjustable foot brace system for additional comfort.

 

In terms of storage options, the Avalon 120 comes with a fairly sizable rear storage well that also has integrated tie-down bungee cord along with recessed tackle holders. For smaller items, you can make use of the two 9" round clamshell hatches, both of which has removable bags. The kayak even has two convenient ditty trays and the fact that it includes YakAttack mounts for further gear mounting options is something that is really welcome in its price class. Of course, you also get one swivel and two flush mounted rod holders that come standard with this fishing kayak. The placement of the swivel rod holder could have been better, but the YakAttack mounts make up for this. Last, but not least, you get cushioned carrying handles and side handles for easy loading and transportation.

 

There are obviously better kayaks available on the market, but for its price range the Avalon 120 offers great value for money and solid performance.
