Old Town Predator MX
If you like fishing all types of water, this is the kayak for you. Like its name might suggest, the Old Town Predator MX is designed for multiple uses. This mixed water kayak can take on all your favorite spots, no matter where or what they are. Lakes, rivers, bay water... you name it, the Predator MX is ready to give you the advantage.
The Predator MX has a blunter, rounded bow, and an added rocker in the hull, allowing it to handle both the chop of open lake water, and the slow, rolling currents of your favorite river. So, if you like to fish the rivers in the Spring, and then head to the deeper parts of the lake in the Summer, check out what the Predator MX has to offer.
First, start with the tri-hull. Built of LT900 polythylene, it is incredibly strong and durable. It resists damage, and can be depended on for years of use. That's ideal when you take this kayak out on the river where partially submerged trees, and boulders present a persistent challenge.
The hull is enhanced for maneuverability in the river environment, so it will help you steer clear of most obstructions—at least the ones you can see.
With that added rocker, you have more control over the boat so you can steer around anything in your way. You can also put the boat right your want it, with less paddle movement. That means you can get in position quicker, and with less noise, increasing your chances of catching fish.
The Predator MX also has six mounting plates which you can remove if you like. Or, use them to mount your GPS, and another rod holder. The number of customization options is nearly endless, so you can outfit this kayak to suit the type of fishing you want to do. A fish finder for the deep holes in the lake, and a navigation system for cruising the tributaries of your favorite river.
So, you can focus on fishing and keep your hands free when you need them, you'll also find a handy side-mount paddle storage system that makes stowing your paddle temporarily a breeze.
The exo-ridge deck features a non-skid surface that keeps you and all your gear dry. Another excellent feature is the exo-ridge tank well. It's designed to give you more space to store gear inside where it is immediately accessible. However, it keeps the gear dry. Store your extra clothes, a battery, motor, or a cooler with drinks and food for a day out on the lake.
The Predator MX also has handy rod tip holders to hold your rod tip securely while you paddle. Just slide it into the holder and paddle. There's no more worry about your tip getting caught in the brush along the river bank, or dragging in the water. Yet, you can grab the rod fast and cast when you spot a fish.
The bow also has a storage hatch big enough for your gear. The click seal cover secures everything and keeps water out, so gear is dry for your entire trip. That's ideal when you are cruising the river on an overnight camping trip.
If you seek a boat that offers flexibility, and you crave a boat that can go from river to bay and back again without giving up vital features, look no further than the Predator MX. This kayak was designed for anglers like you.
Old Town definitely went one step farther this year in both performance and function when designing the Predator family of fishing kayaks. The sport has come a long way, and its been lead in part by innovations like the ones found in the Predator kayaks.
Whatever type of kayak fishing you plan to do this year, whether it is trolling the deeper parts of the lake, scanning the bays for schools of fish, or cruising the rivers for lunker bass, snook, or redfish. The Predator kayaks are sure to give you that vital advantage all anglers seek.
