Default Perception Pescador 12

I am thinking about getting one for my first kayak and would like some inputs?

I think that's a great starter yak I might get one as a spare for when mY friends that don't own a yak.
A lot of the people I fish with have it seems to track pretty straight and still stable.

The Pescador is probably the best deal out there on a brand new kayak since it is the same boat as the 2007-2008 Tarpon 120.

I have thoroughly enjoyed mine as well as my wife enjoying her's.

You can't go wrong with this kayak.

Here are some reviews of it:

It is the exact hull as the 07-08 tarpon they bought the molds from WS. I own one of those tarpons and it is a fantastic boat it was my first and I still use it all the time, launches easier than the hobie so i use it for running shark bait out. And it's super light weight and pretty fast for a 12 foot yak.

I have one and I love it. It was my first kayak I owned. For the price its really a great deal. I think at sports acamdamy they have game down in price than a year ago. I havent had any problems with mine and it gets me where I need to go. For a first kayak its great. Hope to see ya in the water,... good luck

I also have one and i love it. I have had it about a year now and havent had any problems yet. My brother also has one and he loves his too. We have had it in the gulf in some pretty rough surf over at St George Island which we probably had no buisness being out in and it did just fine. For the money, its a great investment..

Told ya it was a good boat Josh! I think my dad is going to get one as well and Liz wants a yak also so I might get one and let her use my Scrambler. I cant wait till you get back so we can do some fishing. Like last spring when we went wading for the specks/reds on the grass flats except this year we will be able to cover more water in the yaks. Plus you were kinda girly walking through the grass.

The only other deal out there IMO opinion that comes close to the deal for the pescador is the Heritage Angler 12 also sold at academy http://www.academy.com/webapp/wcs/st...-1?N=581132415 which is essentialy a heritage redfish without the nice seat that the redfish has and has a smaller hatch I actualy bought one of these first before the pescador but unfortunatly had issues with it developing cracks in the scuppers and had to take it back to academy and swapped it out for a second pescador sad thing is I chat with two other's that had the same thing happen to them but if you can get lucky and get one that doesnt give you issues it's a stable yak for a great price.....just not as nice of a kayak to paddle as the pescador is.
