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.

This is a great kayak. I choose it after reading a lot of reviews and specs and after speaking with ACK's knowledgable and helpful staff. I needed a big boy's 'yak because I weigh about 280 lbs. It's a little heavy so I use a cart to move it around. It's not a big deal to load into a pick-up bed-I just secure it with a ratchet strap and tie an orange flag onto the end. The wheel-in-the-keel is really nice for short distances (and helpful for loading) but you'll probably eventually want a cart-it just makes it so much easier. The orange camo looks really good, and the 'yak feels solidly built. I don't mind the extra effort of having a larger 'yak once I'm on the water. I have to admit its not the fastest thing on the lake though which I think is due to it's width, but its not built for speed anyway. It is, however, really stable and has a lot of legroom and space for your gear and stuff. The seat is wonderful-I won't even get into that- trust me you'll like the seat. As for ACK, I can't say enough about their service. Mine arrived on schedule and securely wrapped. Unfortunately mine had some shipping damage but ACK exchanged it immediately and with no hassle. If you want a great fishing rig I would highly recommend this one and ACK.
Love the Lure13.5. Very stable and comfortable. The only down side is this kayak is heavy so if you are putting on a rack it is a challenge.
