Outer Banks Inlet/Soundside Best kayak for this...

Ok so this kayak , I have the 136 , is superior to anything else in tide waters. When dealing with current and wind , it just can not be beat. You do not have to drift fish. I point the kayak where I want it to go, and I turn the speed up till I barely start to move and then I just fish a popping cork for reds. Any direction I choose. Its got a Dakota Lithium 100 AH battery on it which is incredible. After 8 hours on the water , I still have 80 percent of battery left. I have a hummingbird 1198 c on a dakota lithium 18 ah battery and that works all day , no issues. Spot Lock is great , working marsh shorelines , incredible. If I have to paddle , it paddles very well , use a very long paddle. Its a bit wide for stability. Its heavy , so I trailer it and I off load at docks. I do not use kayak launch sites , they are not designed for the kind of outfit I'm running. There are some limitations with current and wind in combination , I wish it had 55 pounds thrust over the 45 , not sure why it does not , and the head should have been an I Pilot Link head instead of just I Pilot. Then it would be perfect. I will ask questions about this.

Finally, yet I want more

This kayak is simply great in so many ways. It offers the features that I've been wanting for several years in so many ways - electric, quiet, controllable, powerful - what a pleasure to use.

Great kayak but not without its quirks!

I’ve had this kayak for a little over a year and it’s a great fishing kayak. It does have a few problems though. All the bolts come loose from the rudder mount. A bolt from the seat came loose too on the last trip out. Front hatch is definitely not water tight. Also the trolling motor has an issue now due to being in spot lock and the wiring being wrapped around the trolling motor shaft. It will slow down and then speed back up again if I slightly turn the motor direction with the remote. It’s still a good fishing kayak though just needs a few improvements.

Purchased in May 2021, I upgraded from a paddle kayak when I found my AP120. I love to fly fish and this kayak allows me to slowly troll while standing and tossing flies around. Also the ability to lock into one spot and fish without an anchor is a game changer. The peddle kayaks are nice but not an option for me because I really enjoy standing while fishing most of the time with the option to sit when desired. Kayak is very stable and I feel completely balanced while standing. I use the lead acid battery for the motor and I'm able to fish two full days on the water sun up to sundown without having to recharge the battery. I've taken it out approximately 25 times in 5 months now and absolutely love it! Remote is very user friendly and if you hook into a big one you can quickly turn the motor off easily with a push of a button while standing if the fish makes a run directly under your Yak. The only downside is the kayak is heavy especially with a lead acid battery, but a good kayak cart takes care of that. highly recommend.

Great for crappie brushpiles

My new best friend. I can't say enough about the hands free advantages. Spotlock is a game changer.

11 out of 10. Over and beyond!

I went back and forth between The 106 Sportsman powered by MK and the Auto Pilot. I pulled the trigger on the Auto Pilot and I am so glad that I did. Not having to fuss with an anchor anymore is a total game changer. The boat is stable, and super comfortable to be on the water for extended periods of time. There is ample storage and very well though our features every where you look. I fish in south west Florida, and it is incredible to be able to stand and sight fish Snook, and Reds on the flats while controlling the kayak from the remote!!! I would buy this kayak again no hesitation!

A Leap Forward for Kayak Fishing

I have been fishing from the AutoPilot 120 for about 6 months in a variety of conditions and I am extremely pleased with capabilities of the is kayak. I have always been a bit skeptical of "motor powered" kayaks but the technological features of the AutoPilot intrigued me. As someone who does a lot of trolling the ability to maintain a constant troll speed in the face of wind and current is absolutely amazing. I frequently use the heading feature to "set it and forget it" and am able to have everything prepped by the time I get to the fishing grounds or get back to the launch. The real magic of this kayak is built into the motor which I power with a lithium 100ah battery. I've never come close to draining the battery even with 10+ hrs on the water. Deploying and stowing the motor is easy. The deck and storage space is more than ample. The chair is very comfortable. If I had to be nit-picky my biggest complaints would be that the gear track is too far forward forcing me to use extensions on my rod holders to make them reachable when trolling and limited access to the inside of the hull.
