Best Sit-On-Top Fishing Kayak
Perception Sport Pescador 12 Angler Kayak
The Perception Sport Pescador 12 Angler is hands-down the favorite fishing kayak in its class. Made from the same mold by the same manufacturer as the 2008 Wilderness System's 120, the Pescador 12 Angler is undeniably considered a classic among quality SOT fishing kayaks. The Pescador 12 is touts all the benefits at half the price of its predecessor.
The Pescador 12 ships with everything you need to get immediately on the water- a rod holder in both the front and in the rear, drink holder, comfortable seat and water tight storage compartments. A comfortable soft seat allows hours of comfortable fishing and the maneuverability to sit sideways and rotate to access gear and fishing lines. The dry storage compartment and on board roominess allow plenty of room for enough gear for overnighters and camping trips.
Thanks to its tough and rigid frame work you need not worry when the wind blows a bit stronger as it is highly stable and buoyant handling 3' swells. Thanks to its multichannel hull and broad stable design, this fishing kayak tracks well and is much easier to maneuver than others in its niche. The Pescador 12 Angler is the only fishing kayak in this price range that has includes accommodations for an after-market rudder kit should a rudder be desired.
When looking for a fishing kayak offering stability and versatility then the Pescador is the right choice for you.

Sit On Top:
SOTs are the new breeds. They're essentially glorified surfboards. Rather then sitting in the kayak, as one does in a SIK, you sit on the kayak. The kayak is a hollow tube that has posts that run from the top of the kayak to the water. These posts are called scupper holes. They are what make a SOT kayak what it is because they allow water that enters the kayak to drain. There isn't any need for sponges or pumps as the kayak is self-bailing. SOTs were created as recreational kayaks that were originally used at warm water resorts as play vessels. They're popularity has been increasing each year and besides resort use they're also used for general recreation, kayak surfing and fishing. These have become very popular for fishing and offshore use. They can take a wave or a wake from a boat and self bail through the scuppers (drain holes)
