The smallest of the Ocean Kayak Trident line, this kayak really packs a punch. At 11 feet the Trident 11 Kayak blends stability with a considerable weight capacity which most kayaks at this length can't claim. The Trident 11 Angler is perfect for anglers who are looking for maneuverability over covering long distances in their quest for finding a honey hole. The Trident 11 features a bow hatch, large tank well and roomy cockpit. For 2014, the side carry handles have been upgraded to hard plastic handles. Features Support Track Foot braces that are easy to adjust and contoured for a comfortable feel; even with bare feet. Featuring a Comfort hybrid seat and redesigned Mod Pod the Trident 11 allows you to add customized rod holders and other accessories to the Mod Pod lid.

This is my go to kayak. I fish 75% of the time and paddle 25% of the time and feel like this kayak is built for just that ratio. It tracks well although slightly not as well as a Tarpon 120. However, what it lacks in tracking to the Tarpon it makes up for in storage space, fishing options, loading and unloading and storage. It is light for its size at about 11 1/2’ feet long and has massive storage for rods and soft sided coolers inside of the kayak. Loading this kayak on an off of my car was much easier than other brands of near the same length due to it being lighter. Another surprise advantage I discovered was how easy it is for me to stand and fish in; something I wasn’t easily able to do in the Tarpon 120. One disadvantage is that when it’s loaded down with equipment and my butt will get wet if I don’t have scupper plugs. However, scupper plugs are a very easy and cheap fix. The seat seems to be more rudimentary than other brands but is surprising comfortable anyway. Another feature that I like about this kayak is the adjustable, comfortable foot pegs. They have a bigger more ergonomic design which is really nice. For my height and size of 5’7” and 140 pounds and my fishing to paddling ratio I would highly recommend this kayak or the Tarpon 120.
Only issue was it took long to receive the kayak than stared. We live in area where FedEx turns their shipments over to local trucking companies so about 10 days to ship to Northen Idaho. Otherwise very happy with this kayak Trident 11.
