Today, I want to talk about the new NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak. I know you are already rolling your eyes. But this might just be the trick for anglers who live in condos and apartments and have no space to store a roto-molded plastic kayak. I know first hand how hard this can be. Back in 2005, I worked out of a hotel in Pensacola, FL doing hurricane recovery work. I had my Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 Angler kayak with me strapped to the roof of my Honda CRV. Everywhere I went my kayak went with me. It was a real pain in the you know what to have to drag my kayak everywhere I drove. Well today you have a great option, the NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak (IK).
I know there are inflatable kayaks and there are inflatable kayaks. Most these were not designed for anglers. They were designed for recreational kayaking, not fishing. The Pike Fishing IK has been designed stem to stern for anglers. Right down to the three Scotty Mount pads that let you attach Scotty accessories such as rod holders and a fish finder mount to the kayak.
The Pike Fishing IK comes in a compact, convenient package that you can easily store in a closet and carry in the trunk of your car. This IK is constructed of top-quality heavy-duty, abrasion-resistant PVC material. Because of the IK design, it can be inflated to very high pressure. This along with the use of a rigid, drop-stitch PVC self-bailing floor gives the angler a stable, flat, rigid platform for sight fishing. The IK comes with two removable skegs which allow you to choose the one that is better for your tracking needs. A comfortable collapsible seat that adjusts to your fit is included in the package. The kayak has 32 stainless steel D-rings that lets you rig your boat exactly how you like it. Along with the seat, the package comes with an Easy Access Tackle Bag that has parallel YKK® zippers that gives you easy access to stored items and tackle. The IK is equipped with bungee lacing in the bow which provides a handy spot to lash down a small cooler, a tackle box, or a dry bag. Two nylon webbing daisy chains are provided in the stern as attachment points for clipping in those items you want close at hand. The Pike Fishing IK has two carry handles make it easy to carry or drag to and from the water. And last but not least, the IK design used top-quality Leafield C7 valves to ensure easy, reliable inflation and deflation.

The 3rd Annual Indian River Paddle Classic is now history. What another great event. Bryan Cheeks, tournament director, said "Congrats the to the 60 anglers competing in the 2011, 3rd Annual IRPC. On day made just for those fishing from a kayak. Without a ripple on the water and limited boat traffic, the fishing was surprisingly feast or famine. While some came back with stories of multiple large fish, others came back with nothing to brag about. Congrats to our "Kayak Kids" who were all given a medal and a new reel for participating!" Mosquito Creek Outdoors in Apopka donated two Engel ice chests, Florida and Florida State colors, and Coastal Charities and Strike Zone donated the yellow Ocean Kayak that were big raffle prizes.
