"The Pescador "Pilot" offers big performance at a small price. It allows anglers to get to their fishing spots quickly, and multiplies the number of casts they can throw,” said Evan Lyendecker, marketing director for Perception. “For the recreational user, the ability to propel a kayak without a paddle gets those who may be paddle-adverse - or even those with disabilities - into kayaking and fishing, helping to open doors to the sports we love.”
The Pescador Pilot is $1,799 USD and launches to retailers in December, 2016.
"The "Radar" is the culmination of anything and everything a kayak angler would want or need in a fishing kayak,” said Lyendecker. “The Radar was designed with S.M.A.R.T. Hull Technology that optimizes the boat for paddling, pedaling, or motoring. Versatility is also paramount, as you can choose your mode of travel and leverage fish finders simultaneously. There is nothing like it on the market today.”
The Radar 115 is priced at $1,349 USD, and the Radar 135 at $1,499 USD. Both will launch to retailers in January, 2017.
"The "A.T.A.K. 120" meets the demands of any angler who wants a smaller version of the original A.T.A.K. that took the kayak fishing world by storm. Its innovative design offers maximum comfort and increased maneuverability with the same stability, wind shedding, and walkable platform as its predecessor," Lyendecker points out.
The A.T.A.K. 120 costs $1,649 USD and will be available in six colors—Desert Camo, Dusk, Mango, Midnight, Solar, and Sonar—in November, 2016.
The patent-pending Helix PD Pedal Drive is $1,100 USD, and comes standard with a versatile and ambidextrous steering system kit that includes steering handle, rudder, patent-pending noise reduction baffles, and installation hardware. It launches to retailers in January, 2017.
The new "Kayak Krate" $124.99 USD, sophisticates the tankwell storage experience with a superior functional interface and sleek look never before seen in a fishing gear storage crate. An open main compartment accommodates larger gear and tackle boxes, and features removable dividers for detailed organization. Smaller items can be stowed in the secondary lid storage. Functional and durable inside and out, the Kayak Krate is blow-molded, water resistant, is easily lashed within a tankwell, and comes standard with three rod holders.
The future of live baitwells has arrived with the Thrive Baitwell, $299.99 USD. The Thrive Baitwell is engineered to integrate with most sit-on-top kayaks and features a unique flexible hose system to draw water from any scupper in the rear tankwell, while a pump simplifies the input/output cycle. Modern and functional, the Thrive Baitwell boasts a compact lithium battery that is chargeable by USB. Stylish and strong rubber latches secure the spring-loaded lid, and the unit is easily transported with comfortable carry handles. Three rod holders come standard for a seamless transition from baiting to fishing. Additional new accessories in the 2016-2017 Wilderness Systems line include:
