Our very first experience with the Pelican Strike 120x Angler was in 2013 at a kayak rental business near the Gulf of Mexico. Up until this day we were not yet familiar with this model but at the end of the day we took home a great catch of Redfish and also felt extremely impressed with this kayaks performance and quality of the build. If you have been interested in this fishing kayak the following review will attempt to answer any questions you may have.

What Impressed Us The Most
The quality and the value! For those of you who might be new to the sport, this is NOT THE BEST fishing kayak you can buy. However, after paddling and fishing in it we were very surprised to learn the price this model sells for. We were guessing somewhere around $1000. Come to find out this kayak can be bought for right around $600. Not cheap but a lot less expensive then many kayaks on the market.
It has plenty of room for bigger anglers. The Hull of this sit-on-top is 12 feet long and 30 inches wide and designed with straight lines and an uncluttered deck on top. While we never had the chance to fly fish from this platform the uncluttered deck should make would make fly fishing possible compared to those with more cluttered decks.
Light weight at 57 pounds and has the capacity to carry 350 pounds.
All together, taking price, stability and performance into consideration its hard to beat the value provided by the Pelican Strike 120x Angler. It may not have a premium prices but compares very well to more expensive premium models. Learn more in the video review:
