Product Description and Specs

The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 is the most popular Tarpon ever. The Tarpon 120 is a versatile sit-on-top that offers stunning performance for surf play, ponds, lakes, and bays. The Phase 3 AirPro seating system adds comfort and easy adjustability. An exceptionally large rear bungee tankwell allows for storage of any gear needed for long hauls while the two hatches provide dry storage below the deck. For 2015, the footbraces have been upgraded to the Keepers XL system which offers a larger trigger and adds 5" of rail length. The Tarpon 120 kayak is known for offering excellent glide and maneuverability, and great versatility for its trim size.

The service from Austin Kayak was good. The service from Estes Freight Co was very good. I was disappointed that the Tarpon 120 did not have rod holders. My first one had rod holders. Fishing kayaks should come with rod holders. It is like buying a new car without a battery.

Q: Based on the reviews the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 seems to be the way to go for my wife and I. My question is, how is everyone transporting their Tarpon 120? At 64 lbs it's no light weight. Are you using simple roof top racks, foam blocks, or some other option? Thanks Paul
A: There are a few options to transport that kayak. I would recommend checking out the Malone SeaWing carriers with a load assist to get the kayak up on top of the car.
