I had dinner with a friend last night and he told me about his most recent kayak purchase, the tarpon 120 by Wilderness systems.  He is a fellow Yak Angler and just raved about this boat, so after receiving his seal of approval about his new purchase,  I wanted to share this series with you fellow anglers.

While the Tarpon has always been rigged for the ultimate fishing experience; they've upped the ante with the new SlideTrax accessory system and new Orbix hinged hatch covers. Now, the sit on top that does everything can do even more.
