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!!

Top Question & Answer
Q: the 2018 version is 32.5" wide which makes it wider than some other kayaks in which people stand in. Can you stand and fish in the 2018 pescador
A: It depends on how well your balance is! There are some people who are not able to stand on kayaks that are wider than this one.

Q: Which scupper plugs work best with this kayak? What type of track system in on the kayak? Thanks
A: We appreciate the question! You can use the Perception scupper plugs for this kayak. The tracks are by Harmony, which are very similar to YakAttack tracks.

The Yak-Gear Universal Scupper Plugs 4pack. But with 6 holes you need two sets. At least that will give ya a couple of backup if you lose one or two
