Size, weight, capacity
The Prowler Big Game II Angler is far from the longest kayak in the range, at just 12 ft. 9 in. (3.9 m) long. It is quite wide though, with a beam of 34 in. (86.4 cm). This gives it a good level of stability, but keeps it easy to store and transport.
The capacity of the Prowler Big Game II Angler is the major selling point. At a whopping 600 lbs. (272.2 kg), it’s hardly surprising that this turns a few heads. Even with all the gear you can load onto this boat, it will still sit high out of the water and paddle easily.
It’s not light, though. With an unloaded weight of 86 lbs. (39 kg), you won’t be lifting this onto the roof of your car without help.
If you can’t sit comfortably all day, it’s not a good fishing kayak. It’s that simple. The Element Seating System is multi-positional and comes with a high, supportive back. This keeps you upright whether fishing or paddling and means you can stay out all day. Adjustable foot rests give you additional support as you paddle.
A kayak with this much capacity should come with loads of storage options. The Prowler Big Game II Angler does not disappoint. At the bow is an internal hatch with a Quick Seal cover to keep your gear dry and secure. At the stern is a large tank well, secured with bungee.
The Mod Pod II in front of the seat provides a range of options for storing smaller items and for rod access. Behind the seat there are two flush mounted rod holders.
Around the edge of the deck, the Prowler Big Game II Angler has six mount points. You can load up your kayak with all the gear and tech you want, without having to drill into your brand new hull. This kayak also comes with a transducer compatible scupper.
Molded in side carrying handles and bow and stern toggles make car-topping this kayak relatively straightforward.
The Prowler Big Game II Angler is a hit with anglers on the larger side, or who want to carry all the optional extras with them when they go fishing. The seat is extremely comfortable and can be easily adjusted, even out on the water. This is also a kayak which you can stand in to fish.
The width may make it slightly more difficult to paddle, but it also gives it high levels of stability. This is a boat which can contend with some rough conditions. It tracks well and, despite the weight, cruises well between fishing spots.
As you might expect, the storage options and mounting plates are a hit with anglers. No one really likes drilling into their new kayak, so these mount points are a particular bonus.
