Feelfree Kayaks is taking kayak fishing to a new level in stability, comfort, and versatility with the new Lure 13.5 Kayak. The Lure 13.5 offers larger deck and wide open standing platform. It features a multi-use console positioned immediately behind the bow hatch and a removable sonar pod to make electronics installation a breeze. The lid has an inlaid cutting board for prepping bait or cutting fish and is insulated so the console can be used with the optional cooler insert to keep your drinks, bait, or fish cold. An integrated transducer recess and port make for easy installation of a fish finder. The Lure 13.5 still includes all the other great feature of the Lure family like the removable multi-level, multi-position extra wide Gravity Seat, Feelfree's wheel in the keel, and Uni-Track system.

Special thanks to ack, I had the kayak on pre order and their service is great. The kayak is well made with a lot of thoughtful features like the sonar pod which makes adding a fish finder easy and allows you to remove it and take it inside in a minute. The front hatch is water tight and doesn't leak even under pressure from a hose and the insulated console hatch has a drain out so you can clean up after you have bait in there easily. The seat is great, adjusts easily and is very comfortable tho the back rest could be higher. The kayak handles chop well and is surf capable but surf launches isn't its strong suit. If there is a down side it's the weight, 95 lbs is probably with out the seat and the sanding platform is reinforced with an extra layer of plastic which is bolted down making this a heavy boat. When paddling the hull glides well but the weight and so so tracking makes having the optional rudder a must if you plan on going some distance with it, the speed is ok but your not going to win any races. All in all a very nice comfortable, very dry ride with nice features just be prepared to take a little longer if your paddling long distances.
