The Bounty Angler is a stable, easy paddling kayak. I don't think it would be the ideal fishing kayak, but it comes equipped with a swivel rod holder and two fishing pole wells on the stern. The rod holder was missing from mine but the nice people at Pelican sent me one. The storage hatch in the bow has a nice latch and keeps your wallet, keys and cell phone dry. There is no room on the stern area for a milk crate, which many kayak fishermen favor. For the occasional angler who spends most of their time on the water just enjoying the solitude of a quiet river, it's a great choice.
