This kayak is by far the best deal on a high end kayak out there today...it's one of the few kayaks out there that is at a price point that let's starter's and people on a budget get into the sport but at the same time is such a high quality and nice yak that you don't realy ever need to upgrade from it In the kayak market it's almost always an all or nothing type of deal.....you either pay a grand or close to it (sometimes much more) to get a nice kayak that gives a person high quality and lots of versatility or you can go the cheaper route that gets you on the water in a hurry but usualy with the cheaper kayaks the build quality suffer's and they usualy under perform which in turn makes you want to upgrade making you wish you spent the extra bit the first time around.

With the Pescador it's unique in that it put's you in the high end side in the kayak world without the price...

The best thing about this kayak is that it is actualy a re-named 2008 Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 with a different label and actually built by the same company as the Tarpon 120. I fell in Love with the Tarpon 120 back in 2008 when I first paddled one but was bummed out because I the price tag on those boats were between $900 and $1000 and I could not afford one. I was so happy to find out the Pescador is an exact copy of my favorite boat and I bought two; one for me and one for my wife and ended up selling the two kayaks we already had (Big Kahuna Ocean Kayak and a Heritage Redfish 12')

Some of you by now are probably wondering "how could this be a renamed tarpon 120" and I will tell you this is because Wilderness systems/Perception are owned by the same company which is confluence water sports...

I love it. I'm 5'9 260 lbs and love this Kayak. This is the 1st Kayak I have ever owned. I rolled it once but once you learn your center of balance you are fine. I've taken it on the rivers & can move with or against the tides. It has a nice seating well & the seat is very comfortable as I have already fished & Yakked for over 6 hours numerous times in it. Get it, Get on the water,& go have some fun

Color: Red Verified Purchase
I have had this kayak for about three weeks now. It is my first owned kayak. I have rented many before and finally broke down to get my own. Once i first put it in the water i wanted to see how well i could lean to know my limits. It was actually a good amount. The yak is a little wobbly at first but once you find center and know your limits it is by far the best as well as easy to manuever kayak i have ridden in. Fishing from it is very nice with a rod holder in the front a rod holder in the rear and a very nice drink holder. I reccomend tthis kayak to everyone from beginers to experts.

As a 30 year kayaker and after owning many SOT's like the WS Tarpon 160, Perception Search 15', Ocean Kayak Prowler's in 13' and 15', Bic Scapa 15', and finally my all time favorite, Ocean Kayak Prowler T (Trident), this Pescador is a good 12' kayak. And yes, it's a older WS Tarpon design that works well. If you visit West Marine online (or store) they have this same kayak called the Pompano 120 in yellow or sand for $450., sometimes a little less if on frequent sale. It does not come with a seat, but you can add a very comfortable Surf to Summit seat for under $100. that is more comfortable with better support than the Pescador/Tarpon seat..by far. The problem with the Pescador seat is that it sits low and usually in a inch of water, depending on your weight (usually over 185lbs). Where as the aftermarket seat Surf to Summit raises you a little higher and gives you a dryer butt.
The Pompano is completely set up for fishing and includes rod holders and perimeter lines that are set up for anchor and safety grabs. And if you purchase online or in store at West Marine, you have NO SHIPPING charges.

After reading many reviews, I decided to purchase the Pescador 12 at a local Sports Authority last spring. After a year of use, I have to agree with almost all of the positive comments given already. I don't know if it has been pointed out yet, but this is also the only kayak I could find near it's price that has accommodations for an after market rudder kit. I recently purchased another kayak with a rudder and find it very useful for my needs so glad it is an option with the Pescador. I have found one negative that larger paddlers may want to consider. Though I and my gear come in around 100 lbs less than it's specified 350 lbs weight capacity, it takes on a good bit of water with the front scupper plugs removed. I find that unless those plugs are in place, water comes up to the front edge of the center access hatch, not allowing me to open it without water getting in. I often surf launch where it is best to have all of the plugs removed. Once out past the surf, I need to install those front plugs then bail some water out of I need to access that center hatch. I can see why they have some Bungie staps located to cross over that hatch to help keep it secure. If that tupperware type hatch cover should get dislodged at the wrong time, it could be a major problem.
For this reason, I would say a more realistic max weight capacity for this kayak should be around 200 lbs.
