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.

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!

We recently purchased the Saturn fk396. I have been paddling a canoe for over 60 years and also raced marathon canoes and lived out of a canoe in British Columbia when I was younger. Our first voyage proved we made the right choice. We paddle this as a canoe and I kneel in the stern and this boat tracks amazingly well with or without the skeg. I love how stable it is and I am in the process of building a sailing rig for it. Three of my friends are going to order this model as they realize as I did that it is the best inflatable available for that price and is extremely stable and lightweight as well. I highly recommend this boat. We kept up with friends in solo kayaks and I have absolutely no complaints except I wish I had ordered an inflation gauge at the same time but ordered one separately to make sure I don't overinflate it in the Arizona sun.

I took a chance on the 13' Fishing Inflatable Kayaks FK396, and it turned out to be a great choice. It's easy to handle, transport, and store. The quality has been impressive, and I have no complaints. I'm satisfied with this kayak. So far so good.
