I got this kayak mainly for the ease of transporting. I am 6'1" and 200 lbs. This kayak is light and carries my weight with equipment very well. This kayak is fast and tracks straight to be only 10 foot. The water has not entered past the scuppers yet and even if it does, the seat is above the floor so I should not get wet. Seat is comfortable. I got the dusk color and it looks very good. I had a couple of issues and I have to give the customer service from ACK credit. They respond immediately. The front orbix hatch would not close properly. Wilderness Systems finally sent a replacement hatch. The main negative I see with this kayak is the orbix hatches. I always spray my boat out and quite a bit of water would always enter the hull through the hatches. I assume if caught out in a rain storm or if a wave comes over the boat, water will enter the hull. I have added silicone to see if that will help with the hatch leaks. Overall I am pleased with the kayak even with the hatch issues.

Bought this kayak after a lot of research. This is a great kayak for all the features, and especially the most comfortable seat with plenty of options for back and leg support. Only reason for 3 stars is, I would caution any bigger person to look for a larger boat, I am 6'2" and 210lbs, I would go for a wider boat as I tipped my first two times in semi rough water (12 inch wind swells on a lake). I have only used 3 times so far, and will update once I get back into the water after the winter is over. Maybe its the fact that I am used to a lower center of gravity in a sit in kayak). Just wanted larger paddlers to be informed.

Wilderness System Tarpon 100 ACK Angler Kayak is excellent. I have used it 4 times now. It is a stable kayak, moves well through the water and is very comfortable. The longest I have been on the water is about 4 hours and it is very comfortable. Wish one of the Railblaza rod holders was placed in the front instead of the rear for more convenience. Rod holders are fine, just the placement. Excellent kayak for fishing purposes. Not too heavy to load and unload by myself.

I've had this kayak for less than a year and have lost count how many times I've used it. I usually spend 4-5 hours at a time on lakes and ponds with no discomfort. I was looking for a kayak that tracked well, comfortable to sit in for long periods of time and light weight to carry. I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

Q: Mounting a Fish finder. How would u mount the Unit, Battery, and Transducer?
A: I would mount the fishfinder on a Yakattack screw ball with mighty bolt. Based on which fishfinder you are using will determine what mount you will put on the ball. Then, I would recommend a RAM Flex arm mount on a Yakattack screwball with mighty bolt (also on the track). I would consider a 12V re-chargeable batter in a battery box.

Q: Which kayak would you recommend for fishing this kayak or the feel free lure 10. I would also like to stand up every once in a while to fish also so which kayak that I listed above would be best for that?
A: Personally I would chose the Tarpon it is a little less sluggish in the water, but both are great for what you are looking for. Feel free would be your best option for standing up.
