Outdoor Retailer Gear Preview: Pro Angler 12 fishing kayak from Hobie
Published on Aug 23, 2012 01:43PM
I've been eyeing fishing kayaks for years and chances are if I were more of a flatwater angler I'd probably have picked up a Hobie. The kayaks are built by anglers for anglers and the Hobie Pro Angler 12 is a good example. Weighing in at 120 pounds, 12-feet long and a 36-inch wide hull the Pro Angler 12 can handle 500 pounds. That should be enough for any angler and his or her catch. The patented Hobie MirageDrive pedal system allows for hands-free fishing. There are spots for six rods and all kinds of gadgets. The Pro Angler 12 will be available for $2,549.
