We’ve put together our ultimate fishing kayak buyer’s guide with compiled information on every fishing kayak currently available in the U.S. Our goal at Yak Logic is to help our readers make the most informed decisions regarding kayaks and kayak fishing, and we’re pretty sure this will help out quite a bit.
Grabbing a new boat is never a cheap proposition, even for a kayak. So it’s important to do your research and buy the right kayak the first time around. Remember – buy once cry once. We do our best to keep this page updated on a regular basis. If there’s a model missing please don’t hesitate to let us know.
The fishing kayak buying guide below can be sorted by type (paddle or pedal) and style: Sit Inside (SIS), Sit on Top (SOT), or Inflatable (IK). If you’ve already got a yak and want to scope out some awesome upgrades then check out the Gear page.
Fishing Kayak Guide
We’ve identified over 200 different fishing kayaks available in the U.S. today. Since the market is constantly changing we routinely update this and sub-category lists. The list below is dedicated to fishing kayaks, of all types, only. For more detailed information on sub-categories like fly fishing kayaks, pedal driven kayaks, or convertible kayaks here. We’ve also got a pretty extensive list of SUP’s if you’re keen on standing.
New models are added here, and discontinued models are sent to the graveyard. The following stats show the average dimensions and prices for various sub-categories. Foreign kayaks are not included in this list.
