One of the standout features of the Elkton Outdoors Steelhead Kayak is its universal hard mounting points, which can be used for attaching rod holders, action cameras, fish finders, and other accessories. This allows anglers to customize their kayak according to their specific needs.

The Steelhead series also boasts a rigid dropstitch floor, which provides excellent stability and a solid fishing platform for both seated and standing casting. The floor not only enhances the fishing experience but also protects the rider and the kayak from underwater obstacles. Unlike other inflatable kayaks, the Steelhead series is designed to resist ripping or tearing when encountering underwater obstacles.

The package includes a PVC kayak fishing boat, two lightweight breakdown kayak paddles, a removable skeg, a travel bag with backpack straps, two padded high back support adjustable EVA seats, two drop-in adjustable footrests, and a dual-action high volume/high pressure hand air pump.

When it comes to inflating the tandem Steelhead kayak, it takes only a few minutes to fully inflate it, allowing you to spend more time on the water enjoying your fishing experience.

The kayak comes with two skegs for long glides, but only one of them is removable. This feature provides flexibility for different water conditions.

The 12-foot Steelhead kayak is designed to handle rivers and mild rapids with ease, thanks to its rigid drop stitch floor. This feature adds stability and durability, making it suitable for various water conditions.

The side inflation tubes or chambers of the kayak are made of laminated PVC and do not have internal bladders. The use of multi-layered PVC ensures the strength and integrity of the kayak, providing a reliable and durable watercraft for fishing adventures.
