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.

Review: 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.

Review: Excellent boat. Good job Old Town! I was a little sceptical at first about the performance of the hull as it has a wide beam for a kayak. It is a slow starter but once you get it moving it performs very well and is easy to paddle. This boat is very stable and holds just about anything you want to put into it. I Would recomend a rudder when paddling in a wind. It tracks so much better and is easier to control. No compaints. I am very pleased with this boat. I would recomend it to anyone who needs a good fishing platform.

Review: To begin, I found Austin Kayak to be a great company in terms of customer service. Before my order shipped I received a phone call from a rep to ensure I had everything I needed and to discuss the shipping process. All the staff I dealt with was extremely friendly and helpful. I did encounter an issue however and was sent the Ocean Kayak Big Game Prowler II rather than the Predator 13 that I had ordered. While the kayak was on time it was the incorrect model. I called an Austin Kayak rep, David, who guided me through the process of refusing the package to the delivery driver (also very friendly and helpful) and got the correct kayak, the Old Town Predator 13, on its way. Although the issue was unfortunate it only cost me time and gave me the opportunity to examine the Predator's main competitor model up close. While Johnson Outdoors owns both companies, Old Town and Ocean Kayak, I did find some major differences that I believe set the Predator above the Prowler. 1: The molded in carry handles on the bow and stern. The Prowler features attached straps for the purpose, but a molded in handle can never break. 2. The no slip floor of the Predator. While it may not seem like a major point at first I have come to realize as much as I love to stand in the Predator I would miss the ribbed floor if I didn't have it. As stable as this kayak is, I can't imagine anyone sits down much. 3. Included scupper plugs. The Predator came with one-way scupper valve drains where the Prowler did not. I personally prefer to plug the scuppers as I feel it provides added stability, which may just be my opinion but take it for what its worth. With those 3 reasons in mind of why I prefer the Predator over the Prowler I'd also like to discuss a few features both incorporate into their designs that I could not do without. 1. The 3 position seat. It is extremely comfortable and easy to adjust for correct paddling posture. Just as it is intended to, the low setting is great for traveling while the higher setting is useful for providing increased vision which is huge to me because I use this boat primarily for sight fishing. My favorite part about the seat is the folded back position. I push myself through a foot or less of water most of the time while fly fishing and standing is simply the only option. I am also a fly fisherman and standing helps immensely in avoiding tangling line with paddles, poles, etc. 2. The rod pod. This locker allows you to store your rods beneath you and completely out of the way. There is no chance of catching them with a cast, hitting them on branches, or tangling lines. However should you need to switch quickly they are easily at your disposal. 3. The wide tri-hull. Being able to stand in this boat to sight fish absolutely makes it worth every penny. It is a silently, stealthy way to pursue fish and standing to increase your ability to see the fish you are pursuing is imperative. The ability to stand is for me, the most influential aspect of this boat, and the major factor in transforming fishing into a completely new experience. While not quite as major factors I do feel like it is also worth the time to mention the large, comfortable, easy to adjust foot rests, the pouches on the sides of the hull interior and seat back for storage, and the Scotty paddle holder that comes with the kayak. These features continue to add to the function of the boat and help it help you have a more enjoyable experience. To me a kayak is a tool. I bought one to allow me to access waters and pursue fish I wasn't able to before via the bank or in a motorized craft. While some tools may create unnecessary burdens this kayak has done nothing but aid and completely transform my fishing experience. I could not have picked a better boat suited for fishing than the Predator 13 and would encourage any fisherman who is serious about close quarters pursuit to purchase this boat above the competition.

Review: Like previous reviewer, I too ordered mine on a Friday and received around 10 am the following Wednesday. The carrier that ACK chose (Estes) was very professional and delivered with no issues. The kayak itself is everything I wanted in a fishing kayak. I'm around 240lbs and I've taken it on 3 extended fishing outings and feel extremely comfortable/stable in the Predator 13. I've only used it in the high seat position but standing up in it is literally as easy as just standing up. I've not attached many accessories to the kayak yet but it has plenty of room for whatever I might want to add. I highly recommend this kayak as well as ACK for fast and professional service!
