Sit on Tops Products

No Products are currently available.

What makes a kayak good for fishing or angling? First, you need great stability so you can move on the boat without worrying about tipping over or making too much noise in the water. An open cockpit, sit on top style is handy so if do fall off bringing the big one in, you can turn it back over and clamber straight back on. It also means easy access to all your gear. There should be plenty of hatches and storage options to keep everything tidy and out of the way, and maybe a big well for your catch. Cleaning fish bits off your sit on top is simple too, and much easier than getting the inside of a closed kayak clean (but if you want to do some general kayaking too, we have closed cockpit fishing boats like the Dagger Blackwater and Dagger Approach Angler). Many models come equipped with caster and flush mounted rod holders, and some have a built in anchor system or a place for a fish finder.You can also take a look at the non fishing specific models of Sit on Top or Touring Kayaks, and look to mount rod holders and anchor trollies yourself.

Boats with foot pedals or small electric motors can be found on the Open Canoeing page, and we have lots of sit on tops that can be used for all purposes- light coastal touring, a bit of surfing, some fishing, playing in the sea or the lake with the kids- but if fishing is your game, this is the page you want.

The range is big enough to let you find the perfect boat for you, but we like to tell you which ones we (and our customers) like the best to get you started. The Ocean Kayak Prowler series provide purpose-built fishing machines in different hull shapes and lenghts to suit your needs, with the flagship of the fleet being the Ocean Kayak Prowler Ultra 4.7. Smaller budgets can be catered for with Ocean Kayak Prowler Elite 4.5 or Ocean Kayak Prowler Trident 15, and smaller spaces with Ocean Kayak Prowler Trident 11.

The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 Angler is another fast boat, good for getting you to your favourite spot quickly so you get a maximum fishing time from your day. Slightly shorter, the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Angler is not as fast or as big, but is still well kitted out for fishing with two flush and one spinner rod holder, and plenty of hatches.

Fishing doesn't have to be a solo pursuit. We have plenty of sit ons for two and even three paddlers in the Sit On Top section, or the Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 XL which was designed specifically so two can fish from the same boat.
