Versatility is the name of the game with the New Ocean Kayak Big Game II from Johnson Watercraft.
The company’s Ocean Kayak brand has released a craft which it says is equally at home fishing both inshore and offshore, unlike many boats which are designed for one or the other.
The Big Game II features the same Element Seating System found on its ICAST award-winning Old Town Predator 13 and MX models, making it one of the most comfortable boats for a whole day on the water, says Old Town.
Mounting all the latest rod holders, electronics and accessories requires no drilling into the hull thanks to the six accessory mounting plates strategically placed around the perimeter of the deck.
During pre-release tests fishing both inshore and offshore in southern Florida, David Hadden, Brand Director-Watercraft outfitted the Big Game II with Humminbird fishfinders. These can be easily mounted and assembled thanks to the Transducer-compatible scupper and Mod Pod centre hatch cover which allows easy access to the inside of the hull.
“Wherever you are fishing – in fresh or saltwater – the Big Game II is guaranteed to put you on the big one,” said Hadden.
