Pro-Angler Fishing Inflatable Kayaks 13' FK396

New, limited edition Luna Color FK396 V2.0 now in stock. Limited edition features fishing rod holder patches and gear tracks instead of aluminum benches.

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 V1.0 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.

FK396 V2.0 does not come with benches, but comes with sets of kayak gear tracks, and pre installed patches for fishing rod holders available here. Also, multiple sets of D-rings allows attachment of optional benches, if needed, with sets of lashing tie downs. DIY motor mount can be attached between D-rings for use with electric trolling motor.

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!

I have been using this kayak for four years and could not be happier with my purchase. The versatility of this model far exceeded my expectations. I can paddle solo or with up to 3 other people (mostly children) with me. I can move from sitting to kneeling to standing and feel comfortable in all positions. I can navigate deep and very shallow waters. I can pick up the fully equipped kayak and carry it on my shoulder to the water with ease. I can do all of this and can still pack the kayak up to fit in the trunk of my small car. I just make sure to dry it well before packing it up each time.

This boat exceeded my expectations. It is super durable and well made. I was skeptical at first but glad I went inflatable over a hard shell. Cant wait to customize with some accessories.
