I've owned the Pescador 13T for a bit over two years. I keep enjoying it more. I modified it slightly for fishing. The side walls lends themselves easily to adding attachments which make fishing easier. To date Ive put two catbags in the storage holes, Added 2 YakAttack Mightymount XL Track, (6 inch) in the rear in order to add a rod holder. I can probably add two more in the rear and two in the front. I've also added two recessed mounts in the front. In addition I converted the left handle into a paddle keeper assembly similar to the right. ( not sure why they only had one). Found a couple nice seat pads that seem to fit well on the molded plastic ones. The existing seat backs seem good. I usually take my 10 year old son out fishing with me, and he has a ball. He has no trouble paddling. The canoe slides through the water easily and is very manageable on our large lake. Due to its weight I usually slide it into the back of the truck, and use a tailgate extender to secure the overhanging part. Overall a very good kayak for lake fishing with a few easy to do mods.
We absolutely love our Pescador tandem and have had many hours out on the water with my wife and I or with our daughters. The boat is very stable and easy to get in and out of. The seats are comfortable. The tracking is great and it is easy to keep it going where you want it to go when you are paddling in sync.
It is a little heavy at 70 lbs, so getting it on the J-rack on top of our GMC Yukon is a workout. But once you get the moves down, it gets easier every time. Also, building (search Youtube) or buying a scupper hole cart makes moving it to the put-in point MUCH easier. I added some Scotty fishing rod holders that work well whenever we want to fish too. Highly recommended!
Smooth ride, great tracking. It's nice to not have to constantly paddle to steer. At 13', it's a great length for a shorter, affordable tandem!
We took the boat out over Labor Day weekend, and it met all our expectations. Three different sets of total newbies were able to safely and successfully maneuver the kayak and enjoy a peaceful paddle. This kayak presents excellent value for those interested in a safe and stable recreational tandem SOT.
