Size and Weight
3 Waters Big Fish 120 is 12 feet (365.7 cm) in length and 36” (91.4 cm) wide. It tips the scales at exactly 100 lbs (45.36 kg) and is not exactly a small kayak. However, its larger size is part of what gives it superb stability and tracking in a variety of different scenarios. The Big Fish 120 can be easily handled and maneuvered out of the water thanks to its molded handles, as long as you have someone to help you.
You’ll be able to carry quite a bit of gear—even if you’re a large-sized person—thanks to the Big Fish 120’s 400 lb (181.4 kg) capacity. The fact that this kayak is a bit wider than other full-sized models means that it’s almost designed for bigger individuals who are looking for as much stability as they can get.
The Big Fish 120 has lots of great features that make it stand out among other, more moderately-priced kayaks.
Let’s start with the most talked-about feature of the Big Fish 120, which is the cathedral tri-hull design. This particular shape provides not only exceptional stability but also better speed compared to other kayaks that feature more traditional-hull designs.
The kayak’s seat is also very comfortable and can quickly and easily be adjusted using just one hand. This is ideal for anglers who typically don’t want to lay their rod down for something as trivial as a seat adjustment. The seat can be reclined, raised and lowered, and also flipped up to serve as a stabilization bar for standing.
The Big Fish 120’s deck features a reinforced standing platform that provides more than enough stability, even in rough waters.
The kayak has large, open storage spaces in both the front and back, which allows anglers to use these spaces as they see fit. A removable pod in the center of the kayak also doubles as an ideal location for electronics or dry storage for food and other items.
Despite featuring a molded-in rod tip protector, the rod storage design has been described as less than desirable by some anglers due to the fact that exposed hooks can possibly be too close to the angler’s legs.
The Big Fish 120 makes a strong case for one of the best fishing kayaks priced at under $1,000. The tri-hull design and reinforced standing platform offer one of the most stable rides of any kayak on the market. This kayak also has excellent speed and tracking, making it a solid choice for anglers looking for a step up from the cheaper brands of kayaks.
