The Mirage Pro Angler is...

The Mirage Pro Angler is without question one of my favorite new fishing kayaks I've ever owned. It transports well and handles effortlessly in strong curvy rivers to open waters. With the new features, its has more to offer than other brands plus the staff was informative and helpful in showcasing the new features. It was clear they not only sell the best fishing kayaks but they use them to. Thanks again. Brian Bowman

Could use a little more...

Could use a little more space but overall it's great.

I´ve rented one of this...

I´ve rented one of this on New Zeland! I was really cool!!! Very nice to ride it. And also you can notice the great job the engineers have done!!! Very worthy! Total recommendation!

The is the true pinnacle...

The is the true pinnacle of sit-on-top, pedal driven kayaks! An absolute game changer when it comes to a fishing kayak. Stable, steerable, seaworthy, tons of storage, are just a few descriptors of this fishing machine. Is it expensive? Well, yes, as kayaks go, but it is built to last for as long as you'll want it, so in the long run it is worth every penny. The only downside is it is heavy (100+ pounds). I could not see ever owning anything but a PA 14!

I just want to express how...

I just want to express how amazing the Mirage Pro Angler 14 fishing kayak is. If you love Kayaking and fishing is your passion, then you have got to get yourself on of these models! It provides enough tackle compartments to give you exactly what you need in almost any fishing situation, and the elevated seat gives you an awesome bird’s-eye view to help with sight fishing. It’s an absolute beast to say the least! My advice fellow kayaker and fishing enthusiast, get yourself one of these and you will not be disappointed!

My husband bought this...

My husband bought this kayak and he loves it. The seat is comfortable and it is great for fishing.

I fish and kayak in the NC...

I fish and kayak in the NC coastal waterways, at 69 I trailer the kayak, I wanted something stable, hands free and reliable. with a lot of room. The ProAngler 14 and Mirage system gave me just that.

I bought my Pro Angler 14...

I bought my Pro Angler 14 in July of 2012. So far I've fished it in Oregon Bay, the Atlantic Ocean in NC and the Chesapeake Bay. Three words. I love it. I've had it out in 3-5 footers this past October, in the Chesapeake, with no problem. I've managed to swamp it once while trying to get into the Atlantic in NC. Totally my fault for not following good sea launching practices.

I can peddle continuously for 5-6 hours and make 3-4 knots trolling speed without any difficulty. I've added rod holders, fish finder and CPVC trolling arms. I built a trailer for the yak because at 110 lbs it's a little tough for me to manhandle it on my own. I'm 66. This years plans include the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico in Pensacola and Southern Fl. I have no problem being towed out to 15 miles and left for a few hours and then being towed back in. Best yak I've ever experienced.

I've had my Hobie for...

I've had my Hobie for about one month. I love it. We live on a chain of lakes in northern Minnesota. I use the boat for fishing, exercise, and to just plain find my happy place. What are it's attributes? - fast, stable, simple, and hassle free.

I've trailered to other water twice using my canoe trailer - easy lift of 1/2 at a time right side up. On one of these occasions was in big waves and wind with a quartering sea. Not even a hint of a tendency to broach. I've outfitted it with a fish finder and ram rod holder. A headlamp with a red light setting makes night fishing a snap.

This really seems to be a unique concept well executed. Thanks Hobie. The mirage drive is brilliant.

Purchased the Pro Angler...

Purchased the Pro Angler in May 2009. I am not getting paid for this review so here goes. Took this kayak hybrid out into the bay during times of low wind and moderate wind. The stability of this hybrid is awesome, and I'm not some light short guy either. It pedals with ease. You can stretch out and enjoy the water without any fear of tipping over. You've got fishing rod storage up the wazu, incredible tackle storage and maximum room to breath. Standing up in this hybrid is more than doable.

This is a fisherman's dream. It's also very quick on the water. Thanks for reading. I am really enjoying the hybrid kayak in the salt water so understand that in fresh water... it would be that much easier to fish from.
