With more storage than you can imagine, unprecedented speed for a fishing kayak and all the great features of the smaller Trident models, the Ocean Kayak Trident 15 Kayak Deluxe Fishing Package is great for someone looking to get started with quality accessories and a longer kayak. It comes outfitted with everything you need to get on the water the day of delivery, including two professionally installed Flush Mount Rod Holders, the highly customizable Mod Pod, a Stohlquist Fisherman High Back PFD, a Bending Branches Slice Glass paddle which is great for both beginners and more advanced paddlers, a Sonar Shield and a bungee paddle leash.
Great package. I was on the Chesapeake the week I received the boat and enjoyed the ride in light breakers and moderate wind. The seat is comfortable the rudder words great with easily adjustable foot pegs. I have been kayaking for years so had no problems. I assisted a 60 year old lady for her first trip and she found it easy as well. I have added a dept finder and will soon add an anchor trolley. I can't wait for this rain to stop so I can try the fish!
It would be impossible to say enough positive things about Austin Kayak, or about the Trident 15. The customer service was 5 stars, the product was 5 stars, the ease of tracking the product and dealing with shipping was 5 stars. I was a little nervous making this purchase online. I did my homework, and a lot of comparisons with other websites and even a local vendor. Usually, I try to spend money locally, but they were unable to come even close to the price that I got here. The kayak is perfect for me. I bought it because besides fishing, I also like to kayak camp. I am 6'5" and 250 pounds, so the capacity of the kayak is extremely important. At 550 pounds, I will still be able to pack all my gear without having to worry. The kayak is extremely stable, and suprisingly fast. It is a sit on top, so you will get wet. The scuppers work as advertised. The kayak is easy to get in and out of, and very comfortable, even on long paddles.
