Fishing Kayaks

Kayak fishing is truly the new fishing platform.  If you haven’t tried it, kayak fishing is a whole lot of fun, gives you a whole new vantage point, and allows you to access water that larger boats can’t. Fishing from a kayak also gives you more stealth to sneak up on easily spooked fish, is a more active way to fish and is environmentally friendly.  It is simple, easy, and inexpensive compared to traditional boats, and no more waiting in line at the boat ramp. Outfit your fishing kayak with rod holders, fish finders, live wells, down riggers, and even motors. Hobie, Jackson, Yakattack, Railblaza and partners have thought of every accessory a kayak fisherman would need with designs focused on style and functionality for fishing on rivers, lakes, and ocean. Fish On!

  • The finish line for the Fun series is the Super Fun. The Super Fun is functional up to a 38” inseam and 280 pounds. Most of the big guys should fit comfortably and still have the performance they are looking for.

    The New Fun Series floats the amazing simplicity and versatility of the classic design to the next level of performance– and in so many ways! Rollability: you deserve the confidence that the low stern, flexible backband, and flared sidewall of our Fun series provides every level of paddler – it’s the easiest boat to roll ever!

    More Volume: improvements in leg and foot-room pump up the volume, resulting in floatier river running and bigger loops while a 1/2’’ increase in hull-width improves initial stability. Slicier Shape: the new design reduces water resistance, making it easier to get vertical in flatwater. Rounded Deck Edges: the new friendlier deck shape and softened stern edge not only allows water to run off smoother for quicker re-surfacing but also protect your hands and elbows from sharp corners, edges, or deck-lines. Faster, Looser Hull: this new hull is EASIER TO SPIN, faster on waves, and carries more speed through crisply carved turns. A slight crown replaces the grooves to create a silky smooth feel whether on sliding down small waves, big waves, or rocks.
