Inflatable Fishing Kayak Review Summary:
From what everyone has said about the Advanced Elements StraitEdge™ Angler, it seems that most feel this inflatable kayak is a good choice for fishing trips. Many remarked that the StraitEdge™ Angler handled well in most water conditions and was easy to maneuver.
If you prefer a lighter kayak, you may want to explore other boats. But the StraitEdge™ Angler inflatable boat will handle well for long trips and has ample storage behind the seat. It bears a reminder, for those longer expeditions, some reviewers preferred to add a little extra padding in the seat for a super comfy ride.
All in all, if you are looking for a fishing kayak that will handle well on calm rivers as well as ocean surf, the Advanced Elements StraitEdge™ Angler would be an obvious inflatable kayak choice.
Until next time, keep your paddle in the water, and your butt in the boat!
