Features of Perception Pescador 12' Angler Kayak

What makes the Pescador kayak stand out is its ability to handle rougher waters.

A little chop doesn't throw the boat off balance and keeps the paddler confident and true to their course.

When it is time to call it quits for the day, the Pescador is easy to drain and carry back to the car with the carrying handles that are conveniently located close together.

This makes it easy for a single person to easily handle the kayak alone.

Let's discuss the features in details.​

Construction

Perception Sport Pescador 12 Angler Kayak

The Pescador is constructed of the highest grade polyethylene plastic and is molded from one piece instead the way some kayaks are molded and fused together and weighs 70 pounds before being stocked up with gear.

The kayak is coated with UV-protection and is strong and durable to stand up to the test of time.

The Pescador 12' kayak is so well designed and crafted that it is very difficult to break. This is particularly because it is constructed with various thickness throughout adding strength to the hull area where the feet are placed and where gear is stored.

Tracking and Stability​

The tracking keel makes the Pescador easy to steer and turn for both the experienced and beginner paddler.

The multi-chine hull adds to the tracking ability and provides optimal water contact keeping the kayak steady and true while paddling or lounging about waiting for the fish to bite.

Loading

The Pescador 12' Angler Kayak is designed with the fishermen in mind as it can hold up to 350 pounds.

There is nothing better than to bring along everything instead of wasting time deciding what to load up as this kayak can handle it all, from medium coolers to tackle boxes and so much more.

Comfort​

The adjustable seat is the highlighted feature of this kayak as it is constructed of EVA foam that contours to the body keeping the paddler snug and in position for long hours.

The backrest adjusts so that the paddler can lean back and relax while waiting for the fish to come around. The molded-in foot wells allow for the paddler to remain stable and make every stroke count especially in rougher waters.

Another great thing about this kayak is the room. Even if it is loaded with stuff, the paddler won't feel cramped or trapped. The sit-on-top design also helps with the feeling of freedom and makes getting on and off a breeze.

Conclusion

When it comes to comfort and style, the Perception Pescador 12' kayak has it all. It is a great fishing kayak for most water conditions and will keep the paddler stable and true to their course.

Here is a kayak that not only is comfortable for long fishing trips but maneuvers well and is easy to steer for all paddling levels.

By far the Pescador Angler kayak raises the bar on fishing kayaks and won't disappoint you even a bit.
