New to fishing

Post by PJohanson » Sun Dec 09, 2018 5:23 pm

I've been paddling a StraitEdge2 and wondering what difference the Angler model really makes. Is it better when trolling? I don't use a lot of fishing gear, just a handline.

The Angler PRO is a whole other animal in comparison to the SE2. The major differences that make it "Angler" ready are: A drop-stitch floor which enables the paddler to easily stand up and sight cast. The rigid DS Floor is a rock solid platform for standing. A wider stance for added stability while standing. An aluminum frame seat just like hard-shell angling kayaks. This provides a more elevated seating position and comfort on long days. 2-Accessory Frame Systems (accessory mounting rails) which allow an angler to add after-market rail mounted accessories such as rod holders, bait-board/work station, fish finder, safety flag, mini down rigger (for trolling), etc. Lastly, it also has a removable deep fin with a fin mount that can accept an electric motor for self propulsion.
