The all new Predator 13 from Old Town has been completely engineered - below and above the waterline - to deliver the perfect platform for fishing and on-water sporting. Old Town Pro Staff examined seating, rod placement, paddle holders and total "fish-ability" and incorporated it all into this revolutionary boat. The Predator 13 is designed to handle larger bodies of water like lakes, bays, and coastal areas. It is outfitted with the Element seating system, featuring 3 seating positions for traveling, fishing, and standing up. The slip-resistant Exo-Ridge deck ensures that you and your gear stay dry and secure. The side-mounted paddle storage, dual tackle holders, center console with Mod Pod Cover, dual-tip rod holders at the bow, side-mounted retainer bungees, molded paddle rest, removable mounting plates, Humminbird Transducer scupper, and a large bow hatch with the Click Seal cover make this the ultimate fishing kayak. The Predator 13 alters the playing field and provides a more personal connection to your environment - and the battles that take place there. You just may find the closer you get to the water, the further you can take your game.

This kayak is excellent. Great stability and easy to fish with. However the delivery was not so enjoyable. Our kayak somehow got on the wrong truck and we had to wait longer to receive which caused us some issues as you have to be there for delivery. So we had to make special arrangements.
Austin Kayak rocks! I ordered two Predator 13 kayaks in urban camo along with some Scotty fishing products and a Kong Lasso cable for security. Absolutely love the look, design and stability of the new kayaks. My wife and I use the kayaks primarily for fishing in the local bayou/bay in NW Florida. We have installed Scotty deck mounts on most of the mounting plates along with Scotty rocket launcher rod holders and a Scotty anchor lock. As others have mentioned, the kayak is slow to get moving and can be tough to steer in windy/strong current conditions. However, the ability to stand up while fishing and easily move around the kayak makes up for these weaknesses. We leave the seat in the highest position for all our paddling and fishing which provides a nice storage space underneath for supplies/lure boxes/etc. I spoke with customer service several times at Austin Kayak regarding the kayaks/accessories. I also had to return a couple accessories that I didn't end up needing. They truly have one of the best customer service departments in the business. The kayaks arrived in perfect condition from Estes and the delivery driver helped me move the kayaks into my backyard. I have recommended the Predator 13 and Austin Kayak to all my friends looking for a kayak.
