Old Town Canoes & Kayaks Vapor 10 Angler Fishing Kayak

This is probably our favorite yak for the money

The Vapor is built for speed and stability, and it even has a kinda funky shape to it like a Camo Corvette with a paddle. It’s extremely stable and feature-rich, and the molded carry handles are a real nice touch. Check out our video review here

PERCEPTION Sound 10.5 Kayak

This is one of The Herds absolute favorite yaks!

The Sound 10.5 is a feature-rich sit-in at a very reasonable price for an angler model. This is one of the most stable sit-ins that you can find designed to create a stable feel, especially getting in and out of the boat. The Sound 10.5 features a ton of accessories and goodies with great rod holders and dashboard. It also has a really nice seat cause if your butt ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

Perception R15 Pescadors 100 Kayak

A terrific all-around sit-on-top kayak for lakes, ponds and surf.

At only 10 ft, this kayak is easy to transport but still stable enough for larger paddlers. A high performance, feature-rich boat at a great value.
