Go ahead, hook a monster.
There are two things to cuss 'n' swear about when fishing on a kayak: 1) losing that lunker because your line broke, and 2) falling off an unstable kayak. The Old Town Predator MX Kayak is rock-steady and is like standing on the deck of a bass boat. The Predator MX (Mixed Water) comes in at a foot shorter and four pounds lighter and with a wider open deck than the Predator 13, making it ideal for moving water and fly fishing.
Engineered to meet the needs of avid anglers and weekend warriors alike, the Predator MX offers plenty of fishing-specific customized features. The shell is made from LT900 polyethylene, which delivers incredible durability and strength, while the Tri-Hull design offers superior stability and tracking. Tie into the the stand-up fishing straps to help with balance when you hook a monster. When you are moving around (either fishing or snagging a brewski from the cooler), you'll stay upright thanks to the slip-resistant Exo-Ridge deck. Should some H2O get into the kayak, eight scupper holes drain it away, and each include the Predator's patented one-way Scupper Valves.
Getting organized is a dream in the Predator with six removable, strategically-placed high-strength mounts. You can customize where you put your rod holders, fish finders, slide tracks, GPS, and POV camera. The Predator also comes loaded with retainer bungees, dual-tip holders at the bow for easy storage storing easy, and side-mounted retainers for convenient grab-and-cast. Throw those monsters you're catching all day in the large-capacity Exo-Ridge tank well, which is designed to keep all of your gear, from the cooler, battery for trolling motor, or tackle boxes dry and organized. Rounding out the features of the Predator is the side-mount paddle storage, molded paddle rest, a large bow hatch with a click seal cover, and dual tackle holders. There's a new predator in the water, and it's you.

- Q & A
Old Town Predator MX
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've kayaked for many years. The predator mx is by far one of the best kayaks I've went fishing in. I usually kayak in moderate flowing rivers with class I and ii Rapids. The kayak handles great. It's very responsive to paddling and stable. I could easily stand up in the kayak and fish in slow moving water. The molded in pole holders are of no use though if you fish with a spinning reel. Other reels would be just fine. The seat comes up some when going over the Rapids but you can strap them down with the straps provided on the kayak. The seat is very comfortable. The kayak is a little heavy for a single person to load and unload it out of a truck. I think the weight comes from it being such a sturdy kayak though. It is very well made. The dry hull is exactly that it stays dry! Old Town has a lifetime hull warranty. Backcountry is also great to buy from. Fast shipping and price matched. You can't beat that ! Yes I would recommend this kayak to a friend. I would like to have two of them but I can't ride two at the same time.
Need some videos BC...
