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.

Vanhunks Shad 10'4ft Fishing Kayak

Vanhunks Shad 10'4ft Fishing Kayak

Description

The Vanhunks Shad 10’4ft kayak is a kayak ahead of its time, with all its attributes molded into an excellent craft for the avid fisherman and the relaxed paddler who wants to take in the sights.

The Shad is standard fitted with a removable Tool Pod, this is an exciting maneuverable 10’4 fishing Kayak offering you excellent stability. Remove the tool pod and you can fit a fin drive (sold separately), transforming your Kayak in a few easy steps.

Should you wish to add a propeller drive (sold separately) instead, not a problem; the Vanhunks Shad is fully compatible with Fin Drive or Propeller Drive (both sold separately). You have multiple upgrade options in one kayak.

The Shad even have inserts for an electric motor (sold separately) on the Kayak’s stern should you decide to add an electric motor.

The Double Pontoon Hull allows the easy flow of water through the channels, increasing traction and increasing speed.

The Vanhunks Shad has an easy-to-operate adjustable foot control or hand-controlled rudder system and the system is interchangeable from one system to another. The Deep adjustable rudder provides great direct action and limits drift therefore keeping the speed of the Kayak.

As a bonus, the Rudder blades are compatible with the Bixpy motor (sold separately).

The Shad designed for fishing; we added four embedded angled rod holders to assist with storage and rod positioning. Three accessory rails can take extra fishing rod holders, accessories, or a better still to mount your fish finder (not included). A Fish Finder can be mounted to the Shad easily as there is spacing built into the Kayak’s hull for a transducer and cabling to run comfortably.
