Adam from Pelican Kayaks shows us their new release for 2018, the Catch 100.  This kayak is the smaller version of the Catch 120 and while it is slightly smaller, it packs quite a punch when it comes to features.

The Catch 100 comes with a redesigned handle, which was tweaked to make it more ergonomic and make it easier to handle the kayak in order to get it on and off your vehicle. It also comes with a new seat with extra padding and handy accessory pockets at the back. This is a two position seat, which means you can use it in the lower position, which gets you closer to the water, making it easier to paddle, or you could set it to a higher position which is more comfortable, allowing you to bend your knees and making it easier to cast.  The kayak also has adjustable footrests and appears to be quite stable at 34" wide.  The Catch 100 seems quite easy to stand up in, with a rope that helps you to balance when getting into the standing position.

The Pelican Catch 100 weighs 60 pounds with the seat in, and can hold up to 400 pounds in the boat.  It also provides ample space for tackle, as well as paddle holders in the side of the boat and two extra notches that can also be used as paddle holders when needed. 

The Catch 100 is expected to retail for around $670.
