Pro-Angler Fishing Inflatable Kayaks 13' 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 Inflatable Kayak comes 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.

Type PFD IV flotation cushion

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!

  • Heavy duty 1,100 Dtex High Strength PVC fabric coated on both side with 1100 g/m2, 0.9mm. Fabric is thick, puncture proof and abrasion resistant.
  • Two Velcro straps on both tubes to secure oars when not in use.
  • High-pressure air deck floor with double layer of PVC fabric in a middle.
  • Double layer of PVC fabric on top of tubes in a cockpit area.
  • One large removable fin at the bottom for directional stability.
  • Storage space in front and bow under splash guards.

The 13' Fishing Inflatable Kayaks FK396 has been a reliable companion for my fishing adventures. Its convenience and portability make it a top choice for me. The quality is satisfactory, and I have no complaints. Overall, I'm satisfied with this kayak.

The FK396's attention to safety is commendable. The double layer of PVC fabric on the air floor and top of the tubes, between the benches, provides added protection against accidental fishing hook accidents. Additionally, the option to use a type IV flotation cushion beneath the kayak seat not only increases comfort but also acts as a personal flotation device (PFD) in case of emergency. This kayak prioritizes your safety, ensuring you can fish with peace of mind.

Stability is a top priority for any fishing kayak, and the FK396 excels in this aspect. Its rigid high buoyancy tubes offer outstanding stability, allowing anglers to stand up and fish with confidence. The kayak's narrow profile and oversized tubes make it a breeze to paddle, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable fishing experience. Whether you're casting a line or reeling in a catch, this kayak provides a stable and secure platform to pursue your passion.

The FK396 V2.0 has proven to be an excellent fishing kayak. It's compact and easy to transport, perfect for my RV trips. The kayak's construction is robust, made of 1100 Dtex PVC, like Saturn's inflatable boats and rafts.

The gear tracks and rod holder patches are a wonderful addition for my fishing needs. I appreciate the kayak's flexibility, with its multiple configuration options. For those who value portability, durability, and versatility in a fishing kayak, the FK396 V2.0 is a worthy choice.

It's important to note that the FK396 is not a self-bailer, which means it doesn't have built-in drainage holes. While this may be a consideration for those planning to use the kayak in whitewater rivers, it is perfectly suited for lakes, slow rivers, oceans, or bays. However, if you do find yourself needing to remove excess water from the kayak, a super absorbent ShamWow can easily and effectively soak up the water, acting as a makeshift pump. This demonstrates the kayak's adaptability and the ingenious solutions that can be employed when needed.

The 13' Fishing Inflatable Kayaks FK396 has been a solid performer for me. It's easy to carry and store, which is a huge advantage. The quality is decent, and I have no major issues with it. I'm enjoying my kayaking experiences with this model.

The FK396 V2.0 does not come with benches, but instead offers sets of kayak gear tracks and pre-installed patches for fishing rod holders. While some may initially see this as a drawback, it actually presents an opportunity for customization. The absence of benches allows anglers to create their own personalized setup, utilizing the gear tracks and patches to attach accessories and fishing equipment exactly where they want them. This level of customization enhances the overall fishing experience, making it truly tailored to each individual's preferences.

What sets the FK396 apart is its incredible versatility. With two removable aluminum benches, you can customize the kayak to suit your specific needs. Attach rod holders, fish finders, GPS units, or even video cameras to the benches, enhancing your fishing experience with convenient accessories. Alternatively, you can remove the benches and install regular kayak seats for added comfort. The kayak's multiple D-ring attachments allow for endless configuration possibilities, giving you the flexibility to create your perfect fishing setup.

I bought this kayak used off of the FB marketplace. I've owned the Sea Eagle, Advanced Elements, and a hardshell kayaks, so I have something to compare it to. The Sea Eagle and AE make really good kayaks, though the Saturn is definitely a step above. It tracks very well, but not as well as my hardshell, which is a high end perception kayak. It is heavy and bulky, but not any more bulky than my Sea Eagle. I will gladly sacrifice durability for weight.

The FK396 inflatable kayak has proven to be an excellent addition to my fishing gear. Its portable design is perfect for carrying around and storage. The kayak's construction, akin to Saturn's inflatable boats and rafts, is durable and reliable.

The FK396 V2.0 comes with gear tracks and pre-installed patches for rod holders instead of benches. Its adaptability is commendable, with the option to use it in multiple ways, from a canoe to a motorized kayak. I'm thoroughly impressed with the FK396's performance and flexibility.
