BKC UH-RA220 Fishing Kayak

BKC UH-RA220 Fishing Kayak

Description

The BKC UH-RA220 11.5 foot Angler Sit On Top Fishing Kayak is like the Swiss army knife of solo fishing kayaks: It has everything an angler needs for the ultimate aquatic adventure except for a reel, bait, and a bit of luck.

This sit on top fishing kayak features four storage areas: Three are watertight and perfect for a phone, keys, wallet, and your lunch, the fourth is an open cargo area with a bungee tie-down system for keeping larger kayak fishing gear secure. So go ahead and bring your tackle box, cooler, or a dry bag filled with supplies for a multi-day kayak fishing adventure.

This sit on top kayak is stable enough for standing, so if you prefer to cast and reel while on your feet, go ahead and stand tall. Don't worry: The riptide's paddle rest keeps your keep paddle safe when your hands are busy with rod and reel, preventing overboard loss.

The UH-RA220 is an ideal 1-person kayak for the fisherman who wants to cover plenty of distance over open water or downriver and who also wants to relax in comfort once the lines are in the water. The vessel features a foot-operated rudder that helps you deftly steer the kayak around obstacles or through chop, and its 11.5-foot hull and 34-inch beam provide unparalleled stability in a solo sit on top kayak. The riptide angler can support the weight of even a larger adult and plenty of gear, too.

Your kayak comes with a two-piece aluminum paddle, a deluxe upright kayak seat, and a five year warranty, all yours courtesy of Brooklyn Kayak Company.

The Brooklyn Kayak Company BKC RA220 Angler has everything an angler needs for the ultimate aquatic adventure except for a reel, bait, and a bit of luck.

The BKC RA220 twin flush-mount rod holders and single articulating rod holder keep multiple lines deployed at one time, or just keep the rods out of your way during paddling, making transport easy.

The seat does not move up and down.

This kayak does not come with a pedal propel system. The models UH-PK13 and UH-PK14 have Propeller drive and rudder systems.

The RA220 offers more mounting options and great stability than the Vibe SeaGhost 130. Both chairs are comparably comfortable. You also get a wonderful spot to mount a fish finder or trolling motor in front of the chair which offers two threads for mounting on each side. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out anytime.

You can find shades that connect to the pole holders behind the seat and then tie off on the bow on Amazon. I could not find shades on Brooklyn Kayak site.
