If one is going out solo for an extended period of time, this kayak is perfect for storing all of that extra gear, plus drinks and food.

I bought a pelican and used it for a couple of years. It was not water tight. I used it to take out bait past the 2nd sand bar and target spanish in the gulf of mexico off Mexico Beach, FL. On my last voyage, I noticed water coming into the pelican from the seams. I was 2 miles out. I started in, but the water leaking into the pelican caused it to capsize. I was a mile and half off shore. I had to swim back in to shore just wondering if a Bull or Lemon shark was looking up at me as an tasty appetizer. Don't go cheap when it comes to your life. Pelicans are two pieces glued/welded together in the middle. They develop leaks.

I like the kayak specially the price for a 13ft pedal drive one but it has issues with leaky screws used to secure accessories. The kayak already had the recall done to the rudder base leaking issue but the problem seems to be with any screw. I noticed my issue on dry dock when it rained I would find water had seeped in to the hull and confirmed the problem by replicating the issue. I sent an email and got a reply 10 days later that did not address the problem. I replied emphasizing the issue was not in the water but on dry dock but got no response. I ended up calling to explain the issue and what I thought was the problem and was told I would get an email with instructions on how to remove the pedal deck to check the screws or seams and to email back my findings. I did not get any email and found the instructions on my own in their YouTube channel. I found that the main screws that hold the pedal drive deck to the kayak were the problem and I solved the problem by sealing the screws and the screw sleeves with silicon. I sent an email with my findings but again got no reply. The last thing you want is a leaky kayak and bad customer support. Again I like the kayak but lost confidence in pelican’s quality control and customer service. I hope I don’t have any other issues and that Pelican address this problem.

Great fishing kayak. Very stable, rudder system is great. Plenty of room for all your gear. Track system is perfect for adding your accessories. The seat is absolutely amazing. Super comfortable for the entire day on the water! Plenty of spaces to add accessories and safety gear. I mounted a 6" gear track on the stern, next to the rudder for telescopic safety flag. As with nearly every kayak, you to modify to your needs and wants. Totally satisfied with the Pelican Catch 130 HD.
