Bahama 10.5 Sit-Inside Angler Kayak
Although you COULD use this kayak for just getting out on the water and paddling around with a bunch of stuff...why waste an opportunity to go fishing?
Our Bahama 10.5 Sit-Inside Angler Kayak is designed to get you to where the fish are, along with the gear you need to catch them unaware and at a price that's just as surprising. So what makes this a fishing kayak? It's extra stable, has fishing-specific features like built-in rod holders and plenty of room for the tackle and supplies you need along the way. With a sit-inside kayak the low center of gravity makes it easier to paddle and you are more sheltered from cold water. Add an optional spray skirt (sold separately) for even greater protection.
A tri-keel "Stabilizer" hull design has been incorporated into the Bahama 10.5 to enhance tracking and for superior stability so it will stay upright while you're casting, reeling in and landing your catch (as well as when you're getting in and out). Made from roto-molded polyethylene, the hull is flexible and impact resistant so it will endure years of rough handling. And with a capacity of 335 pounds including you and your gear, this kayak will hold everything you need for a day-long fishing trip.
The Bahama 10.5 features a roomy cockpit making it easy to enter and exit. You'll find several details that make this kayak comfortable for most paddlers. Adjustable foot braces allow you to customize the cockpit for the length of your legs and give you the ability to adjust your leg position throughout the day. Knee/thigh pads add extra comfort when paddling for long distances. The roto-molded seat includes a high-back, adjustable, padded back support and padded bottom, plus molded-in gear trays and a cup holder.
Beginning in the bow, you'll find a molded-in handle and the first of two areas with shock-cord rigging for securing items on top of the deck like a dry bag (sold separately). Next is a molded-in dashboard that makes a great place for keeping items you need to access quickly. Two RAM® Solo Mount recesses allow you to add RAM Solo Mount Screwballs (sold separately) so you can easily add accessories to your kayak without drilling or installing hardware.Then a pair of molded-in rod holders are located behind the seat so your rods will be out of the way while you're paddling, but easy to grab when you reach your favorite spot. At the stern is a molded-in recess with shock-cord rigging for a fisherman's storage crate or tackle box (both sold separately). Two scupper holes ensure water that makes its way into the recess makes its way out. Finally, there's a molded-in handle that doubles as a tie-off point, plus a drain plug added for convenience.
If you don't already own them or it's time to replace the ones you have, remember to order a kayak paddle and a life jacket (both sold separately) so you'll be ready to start catching your limit as soon as possible!
