A hybrid, this giant of the fishing kayaks is our most frequent referral to really big guys, hunters and for use as a multi-person/multi-use family boat. Depending on the fishery, the Nu-Canoe can be paddled, rowed, poled and motorized. Created by famed kayak designer Tim Niemier (Scuppers, Scramblers, Malibu II), we weren’t surprised to hear that some serious nearshore anglers consider Nu-Canoe seaworthy for coastal fishing and abalone diving in the Pacific Northwest.

Abaco 4.20

“The Abaco 4.20 (4.20 meters= 13’8”) may be the best fishing kayak ever made” for most anglers. Accommodating weight ranges from 150-240 pounds, the Abaco is a performance fishing kayak that runs silent on skinny water and is equally suited for offshore big-game kayak fishing.
