I had the pleasure of giving a prototype, Pelican kayak a test. It was a ton of fun, gliding across the lake, fishing, bow-fishing and hanging out. What is your favorite cruiser for the lake? Let me know at any of my social media outlets. ~Mia
Review and Interview: Pelican Catch 120 Kayak and Margaret Kordas, Veep of Sales for Pelican International
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the experience of test-driving, or rather test-paddling, a soon- to-be-released kayak from Pelican International.
Review (CLICK HERE to read the Interview!)
Pelican delivered theCatch 120, prototype kayak, after a local show. They did so in trade for me sharing a review about it with you all. The unfortunate part is after I’m done, I have to give it up. I say, “unfortunate” because I love it, but it will be gifted to a local non-profit organization. Stay tuned. I’ll be sharing pictures of the presentation of the kayak.

The Catch 120 is a fishing kayak. I’ve used it for fly-fishing and bow-fishing, as well as general pleasure paddling. It has an adjustable/removable seat and foot pegs, which are fabulous for shorties like me. It has multiple rod and paddle holders. The dry-storage area sports a sealed lid. It’s perfect to stow your drybag. It also comes with a recessed gear-stow area, which one of my 4-legged friends thought was quite comfortable.
The Catch 120 is very stable on the water. I was able to paddle seated or standing, with a pooch on board, in calm or rough waters. The flat deck made for easy balance while standing or seated. It’s a breeze to maneuver, even up small creek channels and other inlets. I’ve also found it comfortable to manage even when large fish are at the end of the line.
The downside of this “lightweight” fishing kayak is that it’s 12-feet long and 34-inches wide. It was difficult for me to solo-carry. I contacted Pelican to probe for additional information regarding carts, accessories other items they may offer. (CLICK HERE to continue reading)
