Ok so ive been asking around i have a ascend 10t im getting more into fishing saltwater dont feel necessqrily comfy in rough waters with it want something bigger not really worried about weight my main concerns are stability storage the Maneuverability possibly be able to stand on and also have been looking into pedal drive kayaks ... ive been intrested in the 3 waters big game 120 the feel free moken 12.5 and the perception pescador pilot i live off the coast of jersey so id be doing inshore maybe going a mile off the beach at the most maybe even the bay but im just so torn between them because i want large space .. proper rod holders and i think thats what bothers me most about the pescador pilot is that the pole holders are kind of wack i need help and an opinion please and thank you

Well the mirage outback would be a stellar kayak for what you want to do! Yes, unfortunately with that comes price... I would get on Craigslist/Facebook marketplace and see if there are any used Native or Hobie kayaks in your area! Buying used is always a great option to save a few dollars and test the boat first!

Definitely think you are looking in the right area with those kayaks! If budget allowed, I believe stepping up to a Hobie or a Native pedal drive kayak might not be a bad idea, but I can understand if your budget wouldn't be in that area as they are expensive! I would look at the FeelFree Lure as it is very large, stable, and comfortable. Plus you could always add overdrive later if you wanted it. Do you have any dealers which would let you test paddle these kayaks?

These look pretty small from what I can tell so you should be fine in pretty much any fishing kayak. What would you say your budget is? Do you want the ability to stand? How much gear will you bring? After you answer those questions, I should be able to help out more! Thanks for watching.

Any thoughts or comments on the Vibe kayaks? Seem to be great boats for under a grand.
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Absolutely - they are great kayaks for the price and they come with a paddle. Honestly, the only reason I did the Tarpon over the Vibe is due to the fact that it has withstood the test of time. I would for sure buy a Vibe if I was entering the market now. That said, Jackson just released a kayak in the same $799 price range. Also check out the Old Town Topwater series for $999! Let me know your thoughts, these are all great yaks.

Big fish 105 vs lure 10.....
Big is $799 so $200 less
But lure has “better seat”
Wheel in rear
I can’t decide.
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Great question... personally I’d get on Facebook/craigslist and look for used FF Lure 10’s to see if you can save a bit of coin. I think the seat will be well worth it from a comfort standpoint. Otherwise, the Big Fish would be great too and you could buy/build a wheel cart for it. I hope this helps! If you have follow up questions just let me know :)

Im looking for my first kayak. Im 6’1” at 225lb. I have no idea what to look for. I saw some good reviews about tarpon 120 as well as perception pescadore pro 120 and emotion stealth pro. My budget is about $800. Any recommendations?
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
First off, i'm excited for you, you will love it! Secondly, I think that all of those are great options and I would certainly recommend looking at them in person and potentially taking them out for a test ride if possible. Aside from that, I would also look at the Vibe Sea Ghost as it is in that price range and comes with a paddle. From what I hear, they are excellent kayaks!


Lastly, don't be afraid to look at used kayaks. A FeelFree Lure (what I fish with) might be a good option due to your size. I am 6'5 and it is very comfortable for larger guys.


Let me know if this helps or if there is any further questions :) best of luck!

Hmmm, two person could be tough. I see the Ocean Kayak Malibu has a 2-person option and it appears to be a relatively stable kayak (probably not as much for the front angler). Aside from that, I see an Elkton option which looks pretty similar... I must admit, I have never experienced a 2-person kayak so I may not be the best person to ask, but I would definitely recommend trying to test ride before buying if you can make that an option at a local dealer. Hope this helps a bit - thank you for watching!

hi,one of the main features you mention is storage,but can you easily access the storage?wouldnt it be hard to get to....how stable for putting out a flounder net.thanks dave
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Great question! I think that the storage is pretty manageable to get to on the water. This kayak is not as stable as some of the wider options on the market, but you should be able to shift your body around and forward in the kayak to reach any space on the yak... As far as flounder nets go, I really have no experience with that sort of thing but based on the fact that you are looking into that style of fishing, I would recommend getting a more stable kayak. For a similar price point, you should look into the Vibe Sea Ghost, Wilderness Ride, FeelFree Lure, or Native Slayer for a bit more. Don't be afraid to look at used kayaks as you can get really good deals that way too. Let me know how else I can help!

Personally, I just use the running racks which fit my chevy equinox and strap my kayak down using ratchet straps. That works just fine. Otherwise, I am sure you will be fine with any after-market rack system. Just make sure the kayak is fastened securely but not too tight as to damage the exterior. Regarding storage, I would really recommend finding a way to get it in a garage or shed as just like anything, weather can create damage. If you have to store it outside, I would definitely purchase a nice tarp and stand it straight up in the shade somewhere.

Actually I do, I just put a deposit on this boat. Now, I have to transport it and store it, so what are the best rack systems in your opinion for a small SUV? Also, what is the best way to store it in the cold New England months? Unfortunately, it will have to stay outdoors. Thank you!

Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Absolutely! Minnesota eh? I have cousins there - good news is there are plenty of fish to be caught! For your size, I would lean towards larger kayaks as they will provide more comfort on the water. I fish out of a FeelFree Lure 11.5 and would consider that a great option. If you can find a used Lure, you should be able to get close to your price range. Aside from that, I would look into other used rigs as well (Old Town, Jackson, Vibe, Perception Pescador, Wilderness Ride, etc.).... If you get to the point where you aren't finding any good used rigs, then you may want to look into the Ascend 12t and wait until BPS has a good coupon offer. I generally would prefer a major kayak brand over the Ascend due to the heavy weight of that rig, but overall it is a good kayak for the price! Let me know how else I can help!

I just picked up the ascend 128t fishing yak. It has a raised seat that goes in three positions and 33 inches wide.i Can stand on the deck while fishing and it is very comfortable sitting for long periods of time. The new ones come with yak power to where you have plenty of plug in adapters for you fish finder, batteries or whatever you need them for. Down side is its bulky and heavy. But great for fishing with arguably more storage space than any other kayak on the market

That would be a very good option! I will be jealous if you get that rig :) I wish I had more knowledge of ocean fishing but I have never done it in a yak. I have seen a lot of people do it though and I really think that kayak would suit you fine. Just make sure to take precautionary measures to start and ease into it. Also, if you go to a hobie dealer, they should let you test-ride it as well.

Absolutely there is! I would look into Ocean Kayak, Old Town, FeelFree, Hobie, and Jackson... There are a ton of kayaks that will work, but it will all depend on your budget and personal preference. If you will be in the ocean, I would recommend a longer kayak that has a good amount of stability. Let me know what follow up questions you have. I would definitely recommend going to a few kayak shops and browsing the selection.

Ascend fs128t from bass pro shops in my opinion is the most bang for you buck. It's a tank
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Great question! I would definitely recommend a larger kayak than what I showed in this video. The first thing to consider is your budget... On the lower side, the Ascend kayak at BPS would be an excellent option (but it also has a big con - SUPER HEAVY).. If you have a few more dollars, I would look into the FeelFree Lure which is a very comfortable ride which is easy to stand in. If you have even more money than that, I would look into a Jackson Big Rig or some pedal drive kayaks (Native, Hobie, Old Town)....


Pretty clear that there are a TON of good options out there huh? Don't mean to overwhelm you, I just like to give as much info as I can. Let me know what follow up questions you have and I will be happy to help. Last thing to note, bed fishing in a kayak is super tough if there is wind. I will be looking into shallow water anchor options; might be something you want as well.

Anything specific I should look for in a fly fishing kayak?
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Great question - I would look for something that can cut through water well so you have a steady ride which will keep you positioned properly. On top of that, you will definitely want stability as you will be standing a lot. I would personally look at the FeelFree Lure and other similar wide kayaks (32" or greater in width). I have never tried that before but I will one of these days! Let me know if you have any further questions. Price range, your size, and what types of water are always my main consideration points.

I am looking for a kayak I can stand on and feel stable. It would be for lake use only and need to have water tight storage. I would like to be able to add a rudder and a way to add a transducer.

Great question - I personally would look very in depth at the Vibe Sea Ghost (such a crazy good value) as well as the Bonafide SS127 (that thing looks amazing, glad you reminded me). I would steer clear of Ascend or Cabelas brand for now as the higher end brands you are considering will likely be a better long-term value. Honestly, I think you will be happy with any of the kayaks you are considering. They are all very similar! Let me know if I can help in any other way :)

Thank you for the quick reply and willingness to help. I live in Ohio. I checked out the Jackson Liska at the Columbus Ohio fishing expo last weekend. Nice kayak. This will be my first and I just want to get it right. So far I am impressed with the Bonafide SS127, FeelFree Lure 11.5, Ascend 128T and the Jackson Liska. There are so many out there and ones I haven't mentioned. There are dealers all around me like Jackson, Cabelas and so on. Let me ask you this. If you decided 1,500.00 was your budget prior to add ons and you wanted something to fish lakes from, what would you buy. Dealer or not.
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Sounds like the kayak I fish in would be a really good fit! FeelFree Lure 11.5 - take a look. Otherwise, I have heard very good things about the Vibe Sea Ghost and Jackson Coosa. What part of the country are you in - do you have dealers close by which you could test a few at?

Is the Tarpon kayak stable and safe enough to bring out to the Chesapeake Bay?
Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 2 years ago
Good question - I am not a saltwater guy so I don't know for sure but here is what I would do. I imagine a Tarpon 120 would be just fine but you should go to a local kayak shop and discuss it with one of the employees to see what most kayak anglers use in the Bay. That should provide some guidance. A lot of people likely are using bigger kayaks with more stability due to the waves.

I noticed a Frontier in the background. I was recently told that the Pursuit would be more stable because the gunnels weren't as tall/high. I have been leaning towards the Frontier 12 because the load capacity, open deck, and seat option. My question is was the gunnel statement correct or true?

Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 3 years ago
David - this is an excellent question. Honestly, I am not super familiar with NuCanoe kayaks but after looking at them, I believe this statement will hold true to an extent. They both look to be relatively stable as they are very wide kayaks - the Pursuit is a bit more traditional in the sense that it's width doesn't vary to the extent of the Frontier. Because of the deeper gunnels paired with the more pronounced v-nose, you are going to be sitting a bit lower in the water which will likely cause the kayak to be a bit more shaky on the water. Overall, I really think either option will be a good rig. Personally, I think the Pursuit looks like a rig I would enjoy more, however I highly recommend trying to test paddle each boat. Let me know if you have any further questions!

Depending on your size, you could likely stand in a Wilderness Systems Ride 115 (basic package should be less than a grand) or the Perception Pescador...

Two great yaks that are both top selling... They are relatively similar in build but the Pescador is going to be lightly wider and have a bigger seat which could be a bit more comfortable on the water. I would say that the Tarpon will likely track a bit better and paddle slightly faster though. Ultimately, I would suggest testing them both out and determining which one feels better for you, but you really can't go wrong with either of these kayaks. If you have any more questions, just let me know! Thanks for watching :)

As long as you don't A) feel the need to stand or B) have money burning a hole in your pocket, it's a clear winner. If you're over 200 lbs (I'm not), then go with the Tarpon 120.

I'm so glad to see this video! I'm in the market for my first, and my budget is just about $1,000. Number one on my list currently is the Vibe Sea Ghost, either 110 or 130. The SeaGhost comes with a toe rudder system, that no other has under $1,000.Next, I've considered the Pelican Catch NXT. FeelFree Lure 11.5 looks great, but seems to be a big jump in price compared to the others. I'd really like a full seat with adjustable positions. There aren't good options for test riding up this way. Do you have a suggestion for a place to ride some of these?

Online Outdoorsman
Online Outdoorsman - 3 years ago
Hmm it appears the closest place for you to view a Vibe in person is actually here in Northwest Arkansas (let me know if you want me to go check it out). I have heard so many good things about those kayaks so I don't think you can go wrong. Haven't heard much about the Pelican but it looks like a great ride as well. From what it looks like to me, the Pelican may be easier to stand in based on the overall shape of the kayak. The Vibe appears to track in the water better and have a few more features for fishermen. If you were to step up to the FeelFree, I don't think you can go wrong but it will be quite a bit heavier than the Vibe. That will add stability on the water, but cut on your top speed.


Overall, I think you have the right idea of viewing them in person. You should probably call Dick's Sporting Goods and see if they have any Pelicans in stock. Let me know if you have any further questions!

Thank you for watching! The one thing I will say if you want to stand and fish comfortably out of a kayak, you are generally going to have to spend a bit more money. A Hobie would be ideal but those cost an arm and a leg... I fish out of a FeelFree Lure 11.5 and it is very comfortable and easy to stand in - a lot of larger people choose this kayak. Other than that, I would look into the Native Slayer, Jackson Coosa, and you could even consider the Cabelas Fishing Kayak or the Ascend series from BPS if you are looking for a lower price.


Another thing to consider is buying used. You may be able to find a Jackson Big Rig, Old Town Predator, or other generally expensive kayaks for a deal. These things will last so as long as it appears to be in pretty good shape and doesn't have holes in it, there is nothing wrong with this route.


Let me know your thoughts, thanks again!

Welcome back from Australia. Been looking into getting a kayak. Kind of leaning toward the Feel Free Lure. Nice height adjustable, extra wide padded seat and 13.5' long. It is heavier though and more than $1k.

feelfree rocks!! i got the 13.5 .i had an avalon that was just like the tarpon.it sells like hot cakes cause its almost half price of any stand up. and everyone starting in kayaks goes for the cheapest "in case i dont like it"after the gravity chair there is no other fishing kayak and on the tarpon the seat sucks and you cant stand ... plus if weight cap is a factor the lure is less than a grand. the lure beats the tarpon hands down.

I have the Wilderness Systems Ride 115x, such a great kayak. Hope you don't mind but I shared this video with a couple kayak fishing groups on Facebook.
