Hobie just provided you an excuse to buy a Pro Angler fishing kayak. The new "Pro Angler 17T" is a tandem version of their extremely popular Pro Angler line. You can now justify its purpose to your significant other: it’s the family’s kayak, not just yours. The Pro Angler 17T can be rigged solo, traditional tandem, or face-to-face tandem. The PA 17T sounds like the perfect all-around family fishing kayak… fishing boat.
Feelfree Kayaks officially announces their latest fishing kayak in the Lure line - the “Lure 13.5”. It includes many of the standout features of its smaller cousins, the “Lure 10” and “Lure 11.5”. These include the front insulated console/cooler with integrated cutting board, transducer recess and port, and molded-in cup holders.
You had me at Pink Camo! Feelfree US has added some fishy features to the new “Move Angler” kayak. These kayaks are specifically designed for smaller paddlers, but have features anglers are looking for - like rod holders with safety leashes, and the upgraded "Kingfisher" seat. Did we already say Pink Camo? The Move Angler is now available in Blue Camo, Desert Camo and Pink Camo. See the full press release from Feelfee below.
Much of the information floating around about the new Wilderness Systems lawn chair-style seat has either been completely off base or embellished. (What do you mean? Everything you read on the internet is TRUE!) So we decided to go straight to the source, and get what we could from our contacts at Confluence Outdoor.
Of course, anyone can read any article written on YakAngler however I will say that this is geared for my lady anglers out there. More specifically, my lady yakanglers!
Power Pole is well known for their motorized stick pin technology for petrol-powered fishing boats. Hobie Cat's "Pro Angler" series of boats is the newest platform for a kayak-sized version of the Power Pole product line.
This year I volunteered at the James Island’s East Coast Paddlesports & Outdoor Festival. This event provides great opportunities for experienced kayakers, kayak anglers, and newbies to the sport. Most of the major kayak manufacturers were represented at this year’s event. This show also provides the stage for new kayak companies to allow people to demo new kayak concepts.
I visited recently with Aaron Baldwin (aka Biyakboats on the YakAngler.com forums) about his innovation - the “Biyak”. I traveled to McClellanville to meet Aaron at his shop to look over the Biyak and the pedal drive component.
