Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

Bought 2 of these as we are traveling the U.S. In our toy hauler and couldn't fit our 13' yaks inside. These roll up nicely, fit back in the bag, and paddle pretty sweet for an IK.

We looked at several makes of IK's and chose these for the NRS durability we have experienced with owning several rafts and pontoons. Exactly what we wanted as oyster shells, rocks and rough beaches have hardly left a mark on the bottoms. I suspect you could puncture one but you would have to try pretty hard.

Paddling - they track pretty well on flat water and rivers. handle class 3's and soft IV's fine but they aren't built for much more due to the low bow entry. a bit slow to respond on technical water. A bit slow on flat water and they track fine in the wind but take a ton of start up energy to get going and maintain speed in a stiff headwind. Pole holders placement and attachment points are great. A bit dodgy to stand and cast unless the water is super calm as a side chop gets them to bucking.

Solid IK for the wandering fisherman!

Best Uses

    Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

    Overall a great, strong and easy to use Kayak. I've owned a few inflatable kayaks and BY FAR this is the best so far. I had a two day fishing trip on the river in January and it performed well. River was low so went without the fin on day one and 2nd day I added the small fin and noticed handling improvement. Nice, shallow draft in the water is about 4-5 inches loaded. I put a marine cushion under the seat to raise me up, adds about 2.5 inches which makes it easier to get up/out of the kayak for fishing. I realize NRS make these to handle white water and a low seat may be best but, on a lake or slower river, I would recommend to NRS to make a 4" closed cell cushion that could velcro to the bottom of the seat to raise the seating position. Makes it easy to swing your legs over the side too. One complaint I have is the carry bag is too small, yak BARLEY fits. I checked NRS videos but, nothing specific to the Pike. Maybe I got the wrong size bag. I'm going to find a strap to keep it rolled tight to make it easier to bag.

      Exceeded my expectations in launching in surf and getting beyond 2-3 ft breakers. Very comfortable stabe craft. Easy to transport. Filling tubes was very confirmation, drop stitch floor was much like a sup. fun in the surf but tricky because of its size. Great all around IK but don't expect speed, but do expect maneuverability.

      Comments about NRS Pike Fishing Inflatable Kayak:

      I really like this boat. I use it mostly in lakes. It is extremely stable and can hold a ton of gear. The only con (for me) is the seat. I added six inches of closed cell foam (also from NRS) and shaped it into a wedge to get me up higher and support my legs. Now I can fish all day with no fatigue. I love the open cockpit. It gives me room to spread out.

      It is not a fast kayak but I'm not touring I'm fishing. Below are a couple of pictures of how I set it up. Not a lot of modifications. The seat, as mentioned. I put a piece of vinyl on the floor so I can work on it without fear of putting a hole in it (lures, hooks, pliers, etc). I have two rod holders on the tubes. I strap a dry bag in behind the seat (with NRS straps). Its my bass killing machine! I always get people commenting about how cool it is. Especially when I roll it up and put it in my trunk.

        Is the material sturdy enough to have a dog ride in the front? I am concerned the claws might puncture a hole.

          A:

          As long as they're outdoor-dog claws, that is worn by running and digging, it should be fine. For extra security just place a rubber mat in the pooch's area.

          A:

          There are D-rings that could be made to work, but they're not designed for thigh straps and aren't in ideal locations. So, yes, I'd add the Pike D-Ring Patches to anchor them.

          A:

          The C7 valves are one way air flow. If you need to release some air all you have to do is uncap the valve and press the center stem. I don't know the exact thickness of the floor. Maybe 2 or 3 inches? I would call NRS if you need an exact measurement.

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          Skip, with the drop-stitch material we use in the Pike floor, as well in other products like the SUP boards and Drifter inflatable drift boats, we don't use pressure relief valves. PR valves are used in other inflated floors to protect the internal I-beams from impact damage. Drop-stitch, with its thousands of threads joining the top and bottom material doesn't require that protection. The Pike's floor is 4" thick.

          The Pike weighs in at 51 pounds. The seat and floor insert are detachable so you could spread them into your other luggage. Place your order online. You will be contacted with shipping methods and costs. We won't process your card until you okay the charges. Another option is to go through one of our Canadian dealers. I'm told Aquabatics, in Smithers will bring it in for you, 800-748-2333.

        3 answers

          A:

          Ron, this video goes over getting your boat ready for storage - http://www.nrs.com/boating_tips/how_to_clean_store_inflatable_boat.asp - If you have room, storing it partially inflated is good. If not, fold it loosely. PVC gets very stiff when cold; if you have it stored where the temp is freezing or lower, warm it up before folding it more tightly for a trip. If stored in an area where rodents might enter, be sure to protect it from them. Some rodents will burrow into an inflatable, inflicting major damage.

          They say the best way to store these kayaks is partially inflated. But for me that defeats the purpose of buying an inflatable kayak. What i plan on doing is buying one of the storage bags for their larger boats and keep it loosely rolled in that. Ill probably slide it under a bed.

          After a thorough cleaning the best storage method is to inflate it moderately and store on a shelf in a garage or storage shed that does not allow sunlight in.
          Alternatively after cleaning ensure that IK is completely dry and then role up as per nrs video and place in its traveling container. Then store in a dark cool place.
