Ocean Kayak Tetra 12 Angler Review
The Ocean Kayak Tetra 12 Angler is an upgraded fishing kayak, that has listened to what anglers want, and then figured out how to provide exactly that. There’s a little more space in the cockpit, and the hull has improved efficiency compared to other kayak models.
The Modular Fishing Pods which are instantly recognisable with Ocean Kayaks, is present in the center console. So fishing rods can be easily stored and accessed while on the boat and you can enjoy the benefits of a variety of mounting options. The Mod Pod is also the ideal location in your kayak to mount any fish finders or electronic devices, or any other accessories you may choose to customise your kayak. As well as the mod pod, there are two flush mount rod holders, and as there’s a secure paddle keeper, so you can sit back and relax on slow moving water, enjoying a hands-free experience.
With an Ocean Kayak Tetra 12 Angler, you can easily and happily spend all day on the water, thanks to the Comfort Hybrid seat back, which means you won’t experience those familiar aches and pains that come from spending hours on water. And while comfort is a necessity in every kayak, when it comes to fishing kayaks, space and storage also become massively important.
What about storage space?
The Tetra 12 Angler has only one, but still generously sized click and seal hatch in the bow, so your gear is always dry and safe. The large tank well at the rear also comes with a bungee so any cargo held there is secure too – and of course the primary storage facility in any modern vehicle – the cup holder – is of course, present in the middle.
Side mounted carrying handles and drain plugs make for easy transportation and use, and as most size options for this kayak come in at less than a thousand dollars, it really is a great choice for any new or experienced kayak fishing fan. Ocean are a recognised, and respected name in the kayak word. Having contributed so massively to the sport as we know it today, you can shop with them confidently, knowing you’ll be taking home a reliable, durable, and quality product, that has ben designed with years of hands-on kayak fishing experience in mind.
- Good amount of storage space
- Useful Features such as Mod Pod
- Storage hatch sometimes lets in water during rougher weather
This sleek and sporty kayak looks great and just glides across the water, while still being packed with gadgets and cargo space. A Tetra 12 Angler could make most kayak anglers very happy.
