A lot of kayak anglers won't even consider an inflatable kayak for fishing. Those guys are also missing out on river fishing on those holes behind the Class III and higher rapids. They're also hauling around their hard-to-store-without-a-garage hard plastic kayaks in trucks that get gas milage in the low teens. They're missing out on a kayak that can fit in a backpack and fit in the trunk of even some of the smallest cars - or even on the bus. It's called the NRS Pike.

2000 denier PVC is tough. The downside, of course, is weight. 50lbs isn't light for an IK, but it is light for a purpose built fishing kayak. This kayak is awesome. I have mine rigged out with a drift anchor for river steelheading, and a GPS/fishfinder for all my still water fishing. It got a lot of looks, and applause even, on the sturgeon opener on the Willamette.

The kayak is super manueverble on the small rivers, allowing me to eddy turns and peel outs with ease. Being an IK, its also crazy stable, so I can do the peel outs without fear, and stand up and do plenty of sight casting and fly fishing successfully. Usually maneuverabilty comes at the cost of straight line tracking. Not the case with the Pike, it tracks great in open and moving water alike. It responds well to all paddle commands.

My traditional SOT fishing kayaks are now gathering dust. Just throw the Pike in the backseat, all my fishing gear up front, and I'm good to go. I only wish the kayak had foot braces and a thicker seat bottom. I'll be ordering a set of glue on braces soon, and I'm still debating how to raise the seat - there are a few options there

This kayak does not come with foot braces, a paddle holder, the pack is way to small to easily repack the kayak, and I am looking at purchasing another seat that is more comfortable. For the money I think this kayak is way overpriced. I have owned several kayaks over the years and this one is the least favorite of all. After I purchased it, they put it on sale a couple days later and would not adjust the price for the dealer I purchased it from. My dealer charges a 10 percent restocking fee, so I am stuck with it now. Overall not a great experience.

Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

Spent a week on the Main Salmon in the pike. A very durable, well made boat. Took all but two 3+ rapids. Tracks fairly well without the skag in a river. In a lake with the skag is very nice. Not quite as maneuverable as a duckie in a river but performed well. Very comfortable to sit in. You need a longer paddle due to the width.

As a fishing boat it is great, you can get in a big eddy and just circle around. Sitting on a crate is easier than standing for the big one.

Liked all the d-rings and tackle bag. The placement need some refinement. A draining seat would be nice.

Biggest drawback is the slow draining after hitting some bigger waves. Can take up to 30 seconds to drain after filling the boat. But then it can't flip either! Definitely a class 2-3 boat.

I wanted a boat that I could take in the 5th wheel and use in many different ways. Just what I wanted and look forward to years of use. Overall, very pleased.

    Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

    The NRS Pike is a great boat! I've had it out several times and it tracks well with either of the included skegs. Very stable and paddles easily. I've outfitted it with some rod holders and it's a very capable fishing boat with plenty of room for gear. Great for kayak camping too. The seat, bag and pump that come with the boat are quality accessories. Mine hasn't been in any rivers yet but it seems tough enough to handle about anything.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The boat arrived quickly in great condition.

    Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

    I live in an apartment and have a small 2 seat coupe. I'm an avid fisherman and wanted a kayak to fish with. When I looked at the racks for my car and a way to mount a normal kayak in my place, the cost for those 2 solutions alone came to about $700. Someone mentioned inflatables. At first I was skeptical. After doing the research I discovered that the material and manufacturing techniques have come a long way since I was younger and used inflatables.

    I decided to go with the Pike and I'm very happy. I have many lakes, streams, creeks as well as bays and the ocean to venture in and this is something that I feel confident can handle all.

    After some trial and error I found the following deployment method works best for me. I have Wheel-Ezz mini beach cart and use that to transport the Kayak-deflated and folded, 5 gallon bucket with my stuff, a mini ice chest, K200 pump and paddles and poles to the waters edge. I also have a back-pack and a electric pump I carry on me. Once i get to the waters edge I inflate the Pike, put on the fishing rod holders and load up and tie down everything and I'm ready to go.

    One thing I do notice is when it gets hot (we have 90-106 degree days in the summer) the green plastic gets hot to the touch, when you're out in the sum so you have to be careful.

    I would really like to see a smaller 8 foot or so version of this in the 25-30 pound range. At 65 pounds you can hump the Pike, but in the 90-106 summer heat with all your other gear it's not something for everyone. A smaller lighter version would be far more mobile. I would buy it in a heart beat.

    One other thing I'd like to see is a backpack that comes apart and you lay down like a blanket. You then lay the raft on top in the middle then fold over the kayak and use snaps to secure.You can then carry it like a backpack. Other companies use this method and it seems much easier than having to fold up the kayak and getting it small enough to get into a bag.

    Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

    My wife got an inflatable paddle board. We started to hike it to remote places and paddle around. So I decided I needed something too. Not much of a paddleboard fan. I stumbled across the Pike. This thing does a little bit of everything. I've hiked it in to lakes to fish. Yes, it's a bit heavy for long distances. 50 pounds. Yes, I really do stand and cast. Yes, I really use it like a paddle board when I'm tired of sitting down. I've cruised the still water with the skeg fin attached. It tracks well with the skeg. And, as an added bonus, you can take it down the river as well. Yes, as others have said, it bails SLOW. But, if you are familiar with IK's, you expect to get wet. I took it out on a fairly big water day. I filled the boat like a washing machine a couple times but didn't flip it over. It tracks well. It's fairly maneuverable.
    So to summarize, if you want a hardshell sea kayak, go buy one. If you want a fishing kayak, go buy one. If you want a paddle board, go buy one. If you want a whitewater IK, go buy one of those. If you want ONE CRAFT that does a decent job of all of these things combined, consider the Pike.

    NRS takes care of me. Haven't had one issue with them.

      Q:

      would this IK be able to run class 1,class 2 or class 3 rivers?
      Asked on 2/10/2017 by Thomas from United States

      3 answers

      • A:

        Yes, this kayak can easily handle class I and II rapids, and up to class III+ with an experienced paddler. I have run this kayak on the South Fork American River which has about 10 class III's including a few III+, and have had several clean runs without bailing. The main difference between this IK and other IK's designed more specifically for whitewater is the increased length and slightly smaller rocker height. As long as you are a strong and experienced paddler and have a more powerful paddle you should be able to maneuver it just fine. If you are novice I would recommend running class I and II first until you get a better feel for the boat before stepping it up.
