The Perception Pescador 12.0 kayak's versatility makes it popular for both recreational paddlers and anglers. Extreme stability ensures a drier ride that's easier to get in and out of. The 375 lb. capacity rating packed into a 12-foot kayak means plenty of room for you and your gear. Compared to its shorter sibling, the longer length adds speed, storage, and stability. Multiple storage options, fish-ready features, and an incredibly comfortable seat keep you on the water for longer.

Good service. This is my 2nd yak - I've had an older Perception Caster for 8 years which I have set up for fishing in FLA Keys and like it a lot. I got the Pescador for fishing bays and backwaters in NJ - it is larger with more room and more stable, although I don't plan to stand up a lot. Based on my first trip, the wider Pescador seems significantly slower to paddle compared to the narrower Caster (although there is not a big weight difference), which is disappointing but probably the price you pay for the width and stability. If you are looking for room and stability for standup fishing, the Pescador is probably a good choice; if you are not planning to stand to fish, a narrower yak may offer better speed and easier paddling. Note also: I am 6 ft and 180 and have to put the foot rests at the max -- someone much taller could have an issue - again a tradeoff for all the room.
I just received this kayak on Thursday! The shipping was really quick for such a large item. I'm not going to lie I was really skeptical about making such a large purchase online, but dammmnn!! It got to Missouri in 3 days, no shipping damages, one small manufacture defect in the front ride side but not bad. It handle really well, totally sturdy! I've read a couple reviews that day the 2018 models are not as steady and fast. Be that as it may, this guys is super sturdy and pretty quick!! I weigh 280lbs and it holds me like its nothing!! If you're looking at this kayak... GET IT!!! P.S. The Sea Spray color is soo beautiful!!
