Compared to the average sized person, big men always have a few more extra questions and concerns when looking to buy a sit-on-top fishing kayak. How much weight will it hold? Will I sink it? How many inches wide? Will it tip easy? These are definitely true concerns and questions which need to be answered before buying.
If your main concern is load capacity. There are many fine kayaks to choose from on the market which will hold a lot of weight (400, 500 and even 600+ pounds) while also providing plenty of leg room to keep a guy with long legs comfortable. Here we will review the details of one that fits these needs, the Old Town Predator MX Sit-on-Top Fishing Kayak. See image below, it’s 12 feet long and can hold up to 400 pounds
This fishing kayak is part of the Old Town Predator Series of kayaks which also includes the Predator 13 and Predator XL Minn Kota models. These two other models are a bit more expensive but worth checking out as well. If you are new to the sport, wondering about the overall quality the company “Old Town” puts into its manufacturing? This is the oldest kayak and canoe company in America and their products are highly respected.
The Apex 100 is an affordable, easy to paddle sit-on-top kayak. Light and easy to handle, this will become you go-to boat for exploring local lakes and slower rivers. An outstanding value package, the self-bailing Apex 100 comes with an adjustable padded backrest, stern storage platform with a bungee and molded footrest. Our manufacturing process allows us to insert additional flotation for increased buoyancy and safety.
This kayak is perfect for exploring lakes and cruising down slow rivers. It’s definitely not a white water capable craft, but that should be obvious based on its design. We like that its lightweight design makes it easy to transport back and forth. This Pelican Apex weighs just 40 lbs., so it’s a breeze to carry with a friend, and can be carried by one person if need be, although it’s a bit awkward to carry because of its size.
The Apex 100 offers a surprising amount of storage space. It’s easy enough to load a good 20 lbs. of camping gear onto this craft without much of an effect as far as performance goes. The storage capacity and ample space for add-on accessories make this craft a great choice for kayak fishing, as well!
This kayak has lots of dimples and spots to mount various accessories. So if you’re someone who likes to improve and accessories your boats, you’ll love the Apex 100. It’s easy to install fishing pole mounts, cleats, anchor trolleys, and any other accessories you may find useful.
