The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 Angler Kayak comes equipped with multiple fishing accessories from Yakattack so you can fully customize your kayak for all your fishing adventures. That means you can attach the included rod holder and flag along with the Mighty Mount mini-track and two Screwball attachment accessories any way you please. Due to its customizable design, you can remove all the fishing gear when its time for a relaxing cruise over mirrored lakes or a punch-fest through ocean surf. The multi-chined hull provides a smooth ride on serene lakes and tranquil rivers. The Phase 3 AirPro seating system ensures long-lasting comfort for day-long fishing trips in this sit-on-top cockpit. Leg-lifters, a scalloped seat, and enhanced airflow make all-day paddling sweet on your seat (and back), and the Keepers foot brace lets you further customize your comfort. The Tarpon opens wide to swallow all the gear you need, with bow and midship hatches with Orbix locks for security. The cavernous tankwell at the stern is perfect for drybags full of gear, and the bungee system will definitely secure them in place. The versatile Zooka Tube from Yak Attack accommodates all kinds of fishing rods thanks to its innovative design. This open-ended rod-holder features a locked slot, two positions, and an opposite side for catchers or stakeouts. The VisiCarbon Pro flag features an orange flag with a light to keep you visible when you're fishing in the middle of the lake.
With an intuitive design that accepts a wide range of body sizes, this shorter angling sit-on-top maneuvers with ease yet still has plenty of speed to go from one hot spot to the next.
