It is relatively easy to fish while standing up or sitting down. If you don’t want to go for fishing, but for a family picnic, then you can get this tandem kayak too. Lifetime Sport Fisher Kayak can be used for a family picnic or daily trips also.
Lifetime Sport Fishing kayak is a versatile and well equipped recreational fishing kayak for up to three people.
Where to use Lifetime Sports Fishing kayak?
Lifetime Sports Fishing Kayak can be used in river, lakes, flat water or in the backyard pond. You are advised to use this kayak in calm water.
Lifetime Sports fishing kayak comes with all the necessary features to maximize your fishing experience. I am pretty amazed to see the functionality and features of this kayak. Even though I have discussed some of the core features in the below part, I will still shed some lights on those points.
Some angler loves to fish while sitting; some may want to stand up, or some may want to sit side saddle. Thanks to the Tunnel Hull Design of Lifetime Sports fishing kayak, all can be done without any hassle. More of the tunnel hull design in the later part.
Fishing on kayak requires you to sit there for a long time. Thus, the multiple footrest positions allow you to sit comfortable and tirelessly.
There are fishing pole holders, two padded backrests and a 6″storage hatch for extra convenience.If you want to mount a rudder or an electronic motor for your kayak, you can do that too. The optional accessory mount can be used to mount fishing gears too.
The back seat has a slightly higher height than the front on. I kind of liked the back seat as it offers more comfort and easy paddling experience for me.
If you are taking your child with you, my suggestion is to let them sit in the front seat, and you use the back seat. In that way, you can keep track on your child while paddling.
If you don’t want to waste time on paddling and want to go and come back from fishing quickly, you can install a trolling motor for kayak. If you want to take a sip of your hot coffee, you can keep that coffee cup in the cup holder.
Just like other advanced fishing kayaks, Lifetime Sport Fishing Kayak also has paddle clips and cradles to secure the paddle when you are not using them. As we have mentioned earlier, this kayak can be used by up to three people; there are three fishing pole holders.
I have always complained about getting wet while paddling. I know this may sound weird because we are kayaking to get wet. Well, not always!!! The design of the kayak should allow the user to get wet in their wish. The design of this kayak makes sure that you don’t get wet while paddling. This is a feature that I like most about Lifetime Sports Fishing kayak.
Tunnel Hull Design
If you are a professional kayak angler, then you would know the joy of fishing while standing on the kayak. Lifetime Sport Fisher kayak’s tunnel hull design makes it easy to stand up and fish. Fishing might get boring if you don’t have any other choice but to sit the whole day.
Due to this tunnel hull design, it is relatively easy for the users to stand or sit to find the perfect position for fishing. This tunnel hull design allows you to sit side-saddle without tipping over. Usually, some people love to sit side-saddle at some point of the fishing time.
Material and Durability
This fishing kayak is made of high-density polyethylene which offers great strength and durability. The manufacturer is offering five years of limited warranty (check the warranty policy). Even though the polyethylene is cheap, it is very lightweight and provides excellent durability. The polyethylene is UV protected. Thus, it won’t crack, peel or fade.
Due to the lightweight material and space saving design, it is very easy to carry and move. There is even molded carry handles for easy moving. You can store the kayak very easily in the backyard or by using a kayak wall hanger.
An average strong man or women can take the kayak to the shore by themselves. The kayak weighs 65 pounds and has a wide width. If you are strong, then you can take the kayak to the roof of a car. There are kayak roof rack carriers for the car to move easily.
A professional angler would know that a fishing kayak should provide excellent stability. Fishing requires you to move on the deck, pull the fish from the water or other tasks which need better stability.
Lifetime Sport Fisher Tandem Kayak offers fantastic stability to the anglers. No matter whether you and your partner are sitting or standing, you will find the ultimate stability you deserve.
A fishing kayak need to provide excellent stability. Lifetime Sport Fisher kayak meets that expectation by offering brilliant stability for multiple users.
One of the great thing about this fishing kayak is the ability to change the seating position within seconds. You can fish by standing, or sideways, or extend your leg to the front, sit cross-legged and fish as you want. The kayak offers up to three people to use it at the same time.
Tracking and maneuverability
Lifetime Sport Fisher Kayak offer moderate tracking to the users. This kayak might not offer great speed, but good enough to roam on the river and lakes.
It is a common practice to offer better maneuverability to a fishing kayak. A fishing kayak requires more maneuverability than tracking to enhance the fishing experience. Maneuvrability means how well the kayak turns upon the instruction from the kayaker. Since fishing requires you to move quickly, most fishing kayaks offer better maneuverability than tracking.
Note: It is a common kayaking knowledge that if one the maneuverability or tracking is high, another will be low to moderate. Lifetime Sport Fisher Kayak offers excellent maneuverability and a decent tracking ability.
Lifetime sports fishing kayak comes with a decent storage option. Not the best but works great if you have a kayak catch cooler bag. Shock cord straps on the front cargo area can be used to keep small gears and goods. To keep loose items, you can use the interior storage hatch.
