The other day we were looking at the most recent questions asked on the yakangler.com forum. If you have never been to this site, it’s a great place to ask questions about kayak fishing and fishing in general. We won’t lie, we often read this site to understand what questions are currently being asked about the sport.
It’s a great source!
As we were saying, we were at this forum reading the recently asked questions and “lo and behold” we came upon a question where our site fishingkayaks.com was mentioned. It’s very surprising because we are only a small site.
What was the question? A person asked what is the best “Cheap 12 ft Fishing Kayak” to buy in 2015 for $600-700? Here’s the question and responses at the yakangler.com forum.
Why was our site mentioned? We had previously wrote a review on an inexpensive kayaks, one of our recommendations was the Sun Dolphin Journey SS Angler Kayak.
This kayak costs a little over $400 and the person was wondering if this was good enough or was it worth spending a couple hundred dollars extra?
To make a long story short, the people on the yakangler.com forum said it was well worth spending the extra money to get a higher end model if you are serious about kayak fishing. Below are the two models they recommended in the $600-700 price range. And we do agree.
- Perception Pescador 12 for $600
- Old Town Vapor 12 Angler
We trust what the people say at the yakangler forum, they have given us so much good information in the past. If you are looking for the best fishing kayak in the price range of $600-700 then you should at least look at the two models above in bullets points.
If you are looking to spend a little less (like in the $400 range) then we do think the Sun Dolphin Journey 12 foot SS Angler Kayak.
