Best Tandem for Fishing
I use this model when I'm fishing in Kona, Hawaii. You just can't go wrong with this model. Ample inner storage once you get some hatches installed and the top deck can accommodate just about any deck layout you want to customize. I have two flush mount rod holders behind the rear seat and a scotty rod holder in front of the forward seat. The fish bag cooler sit inside the hull underneath the center hatch and holds the drinks and food when not holding fish. I also use this solo. I've added extra nylon padeyes so I can hook up the kayak seat in the middle and then setup a milkcrate with rod holders where the rear seating area is. She paddles great on the flat Kona waters and can take the wake of passing charters with ease (although they are supposed to slow down when passing not motorized vessels). Surf launches and landings have been no problem, as long as you know what you are doing. This is just a great kayak whether loaded up to fish or bare bones to just cruise around and take in the scenery with a partner.
