Thanks jkeithnb. Full disclosure, I am a pro-staffer for Old Town and Ocean Kayaks so I am somewhat biased towards those brands! I would be happy to demo any of the following kayaks to any one in my area should they be interested.
- Old Town Predator 13
- Old Town Predator MX
- Ocean Kayak Big Game Prowler II
- Ocean Kayak Trident 13
- Ocean Kayak Tetra 10 (ideal for kids or smaller build adults looking for a light but capable fishing kayak)
There are several other quality brands out there as well. But whatever you choose, do so after taking a demo ride or ensuring the store will let you return your kayak if you find after riding it, it isn't what you expected.
Ok, Homebrew, seeing how you're a pro-staffer. I'll apologize ahead of time for bombarding you with questions...
I just recently picked up my first fishing kayak, and OK Prowler 13T. What would be the best rod holder to mount to it in front of the cockpit. It has the Rod Pod hatch, so only a cupholder, nothing molded in for anything else. Should I look at the Yak Attack rails and sidemount a rod holder?
One other question, in the future (maybe next season) I might look into upgrading my seat. Are there better seats available for that model, preferably raised or adjustable seats.
Any advice/suggestions would be awesome! Thanks.
