There are plenty of expensive fishing kayaks on the market if you have the money and want the "ultimate" fishing vessel. However, there are also plenty of cheap fishing kayaks available for those who want to dip their toes in the waters before committing to anything expensive. Then there are fishing kayaks, such as the Pelican Icon 100XP Angler, that is somewhere in the middle. You'll find plenty of cheaper ones without as many features and options, as well as many more expensive ones that have a lot more features and options.

Pelican markets their Icon 100XP as a simple and easy to paddle kayak that is aimed at discriminating fisherman. To make it more appealing to anglers, they have constructed it with a multi-chine flat bottom hull, which provides this sit-on-top kayak with the level of stability that is required for fishing. It also offers decent maneuverability, as well as tracking that is good for its price range. Finally, the Icon 100XP Angler doesn't skimp on the storage space either.

Looking at the specifications, the Icon 100XP Angler is a 10 ft kayak with a width of 30.5 inches and it weighs about 49 lb. It can comfortably seat a single angler and has a maximum capacity of 325 lb. For comfort, the Icon has adjustable footrests and also helps you to maintain an efficient paddling position with its Ergocast SB Seating System. For strength as well as stiffness, the Icon has been constructed out of a multi-layer polyethylene called RAM-X Premium, which not only makes it more rigid, but also lighter.

The storage capabilities of the Icon include a quick lock hatch along with a tank well that has bungee cord. In addition, it has 3 flush mount rod holders as well as a swivel rod holder and four accessory eyelets enables you to customize your kayak with your own gear. Overall, this is not a bad kayak for its price class and it should be more than adequate for beginners to get started.
