Should You Buy It Or NOT: A Review Of The Glide Sport Angler Kayak

Built in the USA by the company Emotion Kayak one of the main advantages this sit-inside kayak provides is being lightweight at 37 pounds.

In the area we live, in the backwoods there are many ponds or small lakes to explore and fish in this setting it’s much more convenient to carry a kayak from pond to pond than it is to load it back on to our vehicle.

The lightweight also provides the angler great control and maneuverability in the water.

Note: If you are new to kayak fishing. MAKE SURE you are aware the Glide Sport Angler Kayak is a sit-inside model as opposed to a sit-on-top. If you plan to fish in rough colder water be aware your sit-inside will take on some water in the cockpit. Most people would choose a sit-on-top kayak for fishing in rough and cold waters.
