Ocean Kayak has completely revamped their Big Game model for 2014, resulting in the Big Game II which is intended to fish both inshore and offshore.

The changes include the addition of some of the same features found in the new Old Town Predator, like the Element Seating System and the six accessory mounting plates that have been strategically placed around the perimeter of the deck.

What hasn’t changed dramatically is the hull, which still suits paddlers looking for a super stable platform to fish from and offers a very high weight capacity (can hold up to 550-600 lbs!) to handle lots of gear.

The Big Game II also easily accepts a fish finder because of its Transducer-compatible scupper and Mod Pod center hatch cover which allows easy access to the inside of the hull. See more about the specifications below.
