Best Fishing Kayaks of 2015

Our Top 10 Fishing Kayaks

What are the Best Fishing Kayaks in 2015 you ask? Well good thing that you asked. We asked the kayak fishing community what they thought was the best, all-around, available kayaks on the market in 2015.

We also polled our experienced and knowledgeable staff to get their recommendations based on what they thought was best in class for 2015. Here is how we ranked the current fishing kayaks on the market:

  1. The first one to make it on our list is the 2015 Hobie Mirage Outback. There were a few issues with previous models that have been addressed and implemented into this new model. This kayak is made for the serious fisherman. It has everything one needs for spending the day fishing on the water – speed, comfort, stability, and maneuverability. The new Glide Technology is why we choose the Hobie Mirage Outback as our number one pick for all-around best fishing kayak.

  6. hobie-pro-angler-12Hobie’s Mirage Pro Angler 12 (2015) continues to make this list even though many do not consider the Hobie Mirage Pro to be classified as a kayak. It’s lightweight, compact and versatile. Its Vantage Seating provides comfort and control with 4-way adjustability and lumbar support. Hobie has three models of Mirage Pro Anglers: the 17T, 14, and 12.

  7. viking-kayak-profish-reloadViking Kayak’s Profish Reload is new to the US yet still worthy of making it among the best fishing kayaks of 2015. The Profish Reload is a solid performer that truly excels in larger bodies of water such as rivers and lakes. The many features of this kayak along with its “paddability” are what landed the Profish Reload on our list. These kayaks look great, are fast in the water, but slightly less stable than some of the other names on this list.

  8. wilderness-systems-ride-115xWilderness System’s Ride 115X is a true fishing machine, as described by some. Some basic features include removable/sliding seat, bungee deck rigging, removable console, and rigid aluminum handles. The added storage is what truly makes this vessel stand out from its competition, but we also found it extremely stable for an 11′ kayak, and it’s price tag is the lowest on our list.

  9. jackson-kayak-big-tunaJackson Kayak Big Tuna makes our Best Fishing Kayaks 2015 list and is the only tandem kayak on our list. The Jackson Kayak Big Tuna has become the go-to fishing kayak for many of our staff members. The Big Tuna offers a larger capacity and variety of seating options to make any angler a success on the water.
  10. feelfree-lure-11.5Feelfree Lure 11.5 took the kayak fishing industry by storm with its multi-level “Gravity Seat” and clean, open fishing deck. The Feelfree was designed for longer paddling trips with more capacity and additional deck space. Feelfree offers Lure models in 10’, 11.5’, and 13.5’ lengths. Trust us, you are going to love being up on this seat, and to sit up this high, you need a stable kayak which is exactly what the lure is.

The Best Fishing Kayaks in 2015 Honorable Mention goes to Wilderness Systems Ride 135 Max (2015). This kayak has not yet hit the market when this list was created, or it would likely have made to our Best Fishing Kayaks 2015 list. The Ride 135 Max was designed to optimize performance and was the winner of the 2015 Kayak Anglers Choice Award Product of the Year.
