Lifetime Muskie 120 Angler Review
The Lifetime Muskie 120 Angler is an awesome and affordable option for anyone looking for a new Sit On Top fishing kayak. At a budget friendly $399, this is perfect for anyone looking to relax on their water without breaking the bank. And with the Muskie 120, you can spend plenty of time on the water catching as much as you can, without any of the familiar aches and pains of sitting in a kayak all day, or worrying about overfilling your yak with too many fish.
As the design is so light weight – only 50 lbs, it is super easy to transport and carry it to the lake or river. Even if you have to carry it over land for a little while, it comes with the front and rear T-handles, making it easier than ever to carry. And being this light weight doesn’t compromise any storage capacity, as it can still hold up to 275 lbs, so is more than capable of holding you and your catch with ease. Not only can it hold all of your fish, but it can also hold you steady and secure, even if you’re engaging in a wrestling match with a veritable sea monster. The shell is made of polyethylene, and the hull is flat bottomed, which means that it’s tough, strong, and stable.
It’s not just comfortable…
The comfort element of this kayak comes with the contoured seat back – which can fold down when being stored or transported – and the adjustable foot rest, which means this can be customised to provide a great fit to any paddler. And in terms of storage, you can really put that 275 lbs weight limit to the test, as there are plenty of storage options – from the six-inch compartments in the rear and in the center, to front and rear shock cord straps. There’s also shock cords for the 2 paddle cradles, which means you can easily fish hands free. And while you have free hands, you can try and catch as many big and impressive fish as you can by taking advantage of the 2 flush mounted rod holders and the 1 top mount swivel rod holder, all of which just increase your chances of bringing home the best catch.
And being stable and able to handle heavy weights hasn’t detracted from other aspects you’d look for in a kayak – as there are stability chine rails and deep hull tracking channels that mean you can go straight and fast in this agile and manoeuvrable kayak. It’s also super easy to store when you’re not using it, as it’s fat ended and can be stored upright. And with the 5 year warranty Lifetime offers for this kayak, you know you can buy this yak with confidence.
- Plenty of storage space
- Generous maximum weight capacity

- Built for more stability than speed
- Not ready for installation of transducer or fish finding equipment
Overall, there are very few downsides to the Lifetime Muskie 120 Angler – it could be used every weekend by a serious angler, and also be perfect for someone who only uses it once or twice a year. There’s very little this impressive kayak can’t do, and is absolutely worth considering for your next yak.
