Lifetime 10ft Tandem Fishing Kayak 2024

Lifetime 10ft Tandem Fishing Kayak 2024

Description

Lifetime 10 Foot, Two Person Tandem Fishing Kayak [YR] is a versatile kayak designed for both solo and tandem paddling. It has a compact length of 10 feet, making it easy to transport and store. The kayak features three fishing rod holders and a rear storage hatch, providing convenient options for fishing enthusiasts. The stable hull design of the kayak allows for a weight capacity of 500 lbs. Additionally, it comes with a 5-year limited warranty.

How wide is it? It's 36 inches wide. 120" long X 36" wide X 20" high.

What seat would you suggest for this kayak? I'm not sure if seats are universal and this is my first kayak. Most kayak seats are universal, and I would suggest getting this one for the Lifetime kayak. It fits perfectly and is as comfortable as it gets for a kayak seat. You can find it on Amazon.

On the tech details, it says a rudder is included. Does it come with it? I bought mine 2 years ago, and it said that a rudder was available for purchase. However, I opted to buy the motor mount and added a 55-pound thrust trolling motor instead. It works great without the rudder.

Can you really fish with two people in the kayak? Seems like the other person would get in the way of casting. While two people can fit in the kayak, fishing with two people can be challenging. The other person tends to get in the way of casting. It's more enjoyable to use this kayak for one person fishing. If you want to fish with a companion, it's recommended to buy a second kayak. However, for one person fishing, this kayak is fantastic!

Things we like

  • The hull is both comprehensive and sturdy.
  • A tandem kayak that is relatively short and low in weight
  • It contains a deck rigging, as well as a storage hatch on the back
  • Suitable for solo and tandem paddling
  • Installation for a trolling motor mount

Things we don't like

  • Because of the way the hull is constructed, speed might be altered.
  • It's a little tight for two duck hunters here, to be honest.
  • It is difficult to proceed linearly.

Most of them are universal .I got this one for this kayak, fits perfect and comfy (well as good as it gets for a kayak seat) http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0047D0J8O/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1402954850&sr=8-1

I bought mine 2 years ago. and it said one was available to purchase. I bought the motor mount and added a 55 pound thrust trolling motor. Its great. (I had very poor results from shoulder surgery) But I used this for about a year before the motor... no rudder , no problem.

Can you really fish with two people in the Kayak? Seems that the other person would get in the way of casting?

Two can fit for sure but fishing off if it is another thing. We tried it once and never again. The bigger kayak makes for a great one person boat... plenty of room. It just does not work for two people to fish. Two can maybe paddle around but it is more fun to just buy a second kayak. This one is fantastic for one person however!
