Pro-Angler Fishing Inflatable Kayaks FK396.

Easy to carry and portable to store, this fishing kayak is a must for any RV, campground or any other situation where a fishing portability is important. If you live in a condo or home near the water and want to go fishing, but have no place to dock a full size angler kayak, then this inflatable kayak will keep you ready for fishing in a moment notice.

This kayak is made of the same heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC as Saturn inflatable boats and rafts. The floor is made of a high-pressure air deck that is extremely rigid when inflated, but can be rolled up when deflated. In addition, a double layer of PVC fabric is applied to the air floor and on top of the tubes, in between the benches to prevent accidental fishing hook accidents. Rigid high buoyancy tubes make Saturn FK396 kayak so stable, that you can stand up and fish if needed.

FK396 Fishing Series kayaks come with 2 removable aluminum benches that can be used for mounting various hardware, such as rod holders, fish finder, GPS units, video cameras, dive flags, anchor mounts, or pretty much anything else you can imagine.

What makes this kayak so unique, is the multitude of ways it can be used. You can sit directly on the aluminum bench and paddle with kayak or canoe paddles. No kayak seats are needed for that! Or, you can attach comfortable foldable boat chairs with swivel platform directly to aluminum benches. You can also remove the aluminum benches, and install 2 regular kayak seats instead. It is also possible to replace the rear aluminum bench with a longer version and add a vertical plate for an optional electric motor. Or maybe even attach a custom made sail kit directly to the front bench. Configuration possibilities for this fishing kayak are literally endless!

The Saturn FK396 fishing inflatable kayak is a breeze to paddle due to its narrow profile and oversized high buoyancy tubes. However, if you need to move the kayak seat slightly higher, or your rear does not fit in between the kayak tubes, a type IV flotation cushion, that is sold for around $10 in many retail and outdoor stores, will fit nicely on the bottom of this kayak and right under the kayak seat. It also will act as a PFD in case of an emergency, or beach seat cushion once you get ashore.

Please note that this kayak is not a self-bailer. It was designed for lakes, slow rivers, oceans or bays. If you absolutely must take it to a whitewater river, you can cut out 4-6 self bailing holes in the kayak bottom to let excess water escape. Otherwise, a super absorbent ShamWow sold in many retail stores is great for getting excess water out of your non-bailing kayak. Simply put the ShamWow in the water and squeeze it outside — works as a pump!

The kayak is easy to blow up and once blown up lasted the entire week of vacation use. I used a pump for air mattresses to get most of the air in it and finished with the provided pump. It is very comfortable to fish from. \r\nI found the seat with the cushion that I purchased with the boat to be very comfortable. The boat was so stable that I even felt comfortable with an addition boat cushion under the seat to set me up a little higher. I was wondering if it would be difficult to paddle without some sort of foot bracing. I think sitting up a little higher because of the cushions under the seat made paddling comfortable even without foot bracing. In calm water my wife joined me to explore around an island. Sitting on the bench while paddling in calm water was very acceptable. Paddling in wind, the higher freeboard in an inflatable does make the wind more noticable than in an traditional kayak and an inflatable does not glide through the water quite as easily. With the skeg in though, 10 to 15 mile an hour winds were doable for me. \r\nWhen it comes to stability, the inflatable is much more stable than any fixed kayak I have ever used. Moving around in the Kayak is not a problem even in choppy water. For fishing comfort, an inflatable is better than a sit in or sit on top hard kayak. There was so much room in the kayak while I was fishing by myself that I found the velcro fasteners on the side for holding a paddle to not be necessary. I just stored the paddle in the kayak. \r\nI would have welcomed an handle somewhere on the middle of the kayak for picking it up. I would have also welcomed a bit more in the way of information on blowing up the kayak. Either materials with the boat or the pump should have that information. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase so far. After a week, I can't say about durability, but it looks and feels sturdy. I am looking forward to many more hours of fishing and would recommend the inflatable kayak for people who like to fish.

16 months ago I purchased three kayaks - 2 FK396 and 1 SK470. Soon thereafter they were put to use. My wife and I, several of our friends, and grandchildren have paddled the boats on the Great Lakes, inland lakes and rivers in Michigan, and the Intercoastal as well as rivers on the Gulf Coast of Florida. I know we have 150+ miles and many hours of paddling the boats with no problems and lots of fun times.\r\n\r\nWe transport the kayaks long distances deflated and in the zippered heavy duty storage bags which came with the boats. They fit easily in the box of my pickup truck with the kayak seats, life jackets. paddles and 110 and 12 volt air pumps included. At destination RV parks, we inflate the kayaks (mainly with the 110v pump) in about 15 minutes and carry them to the water or put the on a rack built for the pickup and drive short distances to launch sites. Generally we keep the boats inflated at our campsite for anywhere from 2 days to a month and use them frequently. When its time to travel again, deflation and packing the boats back into the bags takes about 30 minutes.\r\n\r\nOccasionally we top off the air pressure in the boats with the provided hand pumps if they remain inflated for over a week, but generally the boats retain air pressure well unless there are wide swings in the outside air temperature. We get lots of questions about the boats from other kayakers. The main point that is always emphasized is how stable our boats are on the water compared with hardsided kayaks. No one who has paddled our boats has ever come close to tipping one of them over.\r\n\r\nWe look forward to many more years of adventure and fun using the boats. Thanks again for a great/durable product at a reasonable price.

Bought a fishing kayak from you guys last year. It’s the FK396 model. This thing is really cool. I took your advice and stuck a swiveling fishing chair on top of one of the seats, and it’s super comfortable. I can float down the river and fish for hours. I was gonna put a little outboard motor on it, but it paddles so easy I didn’t have to.

A couple times I dropped fishing hooks on the floor of the boat, and I thought oh man, this thing’s gonna pop. But they never even made a dent in the floor. It’s crazy. When I’m done for the day, I just let the air out and put it in the little carrying case it came with. I actually leave it in the trunk of my car with your free pump so if I’m feeling the fishing itch I can just go to a nearby lake and scratch it! I could never do that with a regular boat. I get fish so much more now, and it makes me happy. Thanks for that.

I wanted to write a quick letter describing my experience with the FK396 fishing inflatable kayak that I purchased last June. We have been using an inflatable kayak for the last four years. We purchased a Sea Eagle 330 to take with us in our fifth wheel trailer as we traveled full time around the country for approximately three years. Although the Sea Eagle did a satisfactory job most of the time, we found it wanting in several areas. I like to fish in everything from small rivers and ponds to large lakes and even inshore ocean bays. I was looking for a heavy duty inflatable that I could easily mount fishing accessories to and even possibly a trolling motor. My search took me to the boatstogo.com website where I found just what I was looking for. I must admit I was extremely skeptical when I saw the low price on what seemed to be a very high quality boat. I had seen similar boats advertised for at least twice the price but the specifications and the reviews I read convinced me to give the FK396 a try. \r\n\r\nWe received our kayak in June of 2010 and I set about rigging it with a fish finder and pole holders and I made a dolly to transport it. All this was made extremely easy due to the many attachment points ( D-rings) and the aluminum platforms (seats) front and back. I was pleasantly surprised by how heavy duty this boat is and the high quality of construction as compared to my Sea Eagle and I was anxious to get it in the water.\r\nIn July of 2010 we left on an extended trip to the northwest. Our first chance to use our new boat was in the Bend/Sunriver, OR area. We kayaked down many miles of the Deschutes River as well as the Little Deschutes and put the boat in several of the local lakes. The first thing I noticed was that this kayak is built like a tank. It is extremely stable for a kayak. I am over 250 pounds and I can stand up in the boat without fear of capsizing. The wide stance of the boat gives a great sense of security and the boat tracks very nicely downstream. I turned the boat around and paddled upstream for about a quarter mile just to see how it paddled against the current. Although it is not as fast as my smaller Sea Eagle, I found I really didn’t give up very much in speed for the extra size and stability of this boat. I met a river guide on the Deschutes River who examined the boat and said it was easily as well built as the boats he uses on guided trips on up to class three or four whitewater.\r\n\r\nAfter three weeks in Bend, OR we moved on to Couer d Alene, ID where we spent a month using the boat almost every day on most of the local lakes and rivers. We used the FK396 on clam water, rough water, upstream and downstream and caught many fish out of this boat. After a summers worth of heavy use I am still very pleased with my purchase and I am apparently not the only one. I am constantly being stopped by fellow RV’ers who, like myself, is looking for a good, strong fishing platform that is still easily portable. The strength and durability of this boat is very apparent. I had this boat inflated for three weeks in Oregon and a month in Idaho and I never had to add air. Compare this to my Sea Eagle that needs to be topped off literally every time you use it. While using my Sea Eagle, I have gotten several punctures from sharp fish hooks over the years. This last summer I struck the FK396 with the same type lures that had caused punctures in my Sea Eagle and I saw no damage at all to my FK396. My next step is to mount a trolling motor and that project is currently underway. I can’t wait to try it out this spring.

Just wanted to say Thanks! This thing is awesome! So much easier than when I had my boat. In the water in five minutes. I have fished every weekend since getting it back in August. Ordering and shipping were a breeze and customer service was a big help. Thanks again!

I am all the way in East Africa, and I am crazy about fishing. I did bought the boat via a mutual friend from the US after I did saw his boat. Throughout my life I did have lots of deferent boats, but man this is a nice boat. I am using the boat in Kenya great lakes like Lake Victoria. I intend to use it also at the coast for fishing on the reefs.
