I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

Old Town Sportsman 106 Kayak


The Old Town Sportsman 106 Fishing Kayak is an ideal choice for casual anglers, tournament fishing pros, and hunters. It offers a perfect balance of stability and performance in a compact, nimble design. The kayak features a quiet pontoon-style hull, making it suitable for a variety of water conditions. Plus, its lightweight nature allows for easy car topping.

All Old Town Sportsman fishing kayaks, including the 106 model, come packed with convenient features. These include customizable accessory tracks, cushioned floor pads that enhance both comfort and grip, a custom tackle box, and multiple rod holders. These features ensure that anglers have everything they need at their fingertips.

One standout feature of the Old Town Sportsman 106 is its universal transducer mounting system. This system makes it incredibly easy to mount your favorite fish finder (sold separately) and enhance your fishing experience. Additionally, the kayak includes a side-mounted hull paddle clip, which keeps your paddle secure and out of the way while you fish.

Comfort is essential for any fishing trip, and the Old Town Sportsman 106 delivers with its premium dual-layer Textilene mesh seat. This seat helps you stay cool and comfortable throughout long days on the water. Furthermore, the adjustable foot braces with snap-lock feature contribute to improved paddling performance and increased comfort.

The Old Town Sportsman 106 Fishing Kayak measures 10 feet, 6 inches in length and has a maximum capacity of 440 pounds. The usable capacity for people and gear is 363 pounds. Despite its sturdy construction, the kayak weighs only 77 pounds. Please note that the paddle is sold separately.

Here are some frequently asked questions answered for your convenience:

1. "The video shows this kayak as a pedal one yet the pictures do not indicate that it is. Is this a pedal kayak?"

This is not a pedal kayak. The model shown in the video with pedal capabilities has "PDL" in the part number and is priced significantly higher. The $999 version is the base model without the pedal feature.

2. "How many people can go in the kayak?"

The Old Town Sportsman 106 is designed for one person.

3. "Why is the Old Town Sportsman 106 priced almost $600 above MSRP?"

We do not sell the kayak at that inflated price. The seller you mentioned has included a large shipping fee on top of the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). At our store, we offer the kayak with much lower shipping fees. Visit Black Hall Outfitters for accurate pricing and inventory availability.

4. "Can this kayak be upgraded to a PDL or Minn Kota motor?"

No, the Old Town Sportsman 106 Fishing Kayak cannot be upgraded to a pedal or motor drive. It is designed to be used with paddles only.
