    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.

      Fantastic fishing kayak, and a great value. Feels more durable and looks better made than some others that cost twice as much. The rigid bottom is a great feature. Extremely comfortable. Makes for a great day-touring, or short-trip camping boat too.

      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.

        The NRS Pike is simply excellent. I've used it for over a year now in every type of condition. I roll it up and strap it to the back of my motorcycle. In any given outing, i ride, kayak and fish; my 3 favorite hobbies. It is a very stable craft. I used it for river fishing. The self bailing floor is a blessing. I use it for Great Lakes fishing with a trolling motor. I use it on small lakes. It has held up very well. I will update this review with photos. Ive caught Musky and all species out of this boat. Fantastic!!

          Q:

          What is the best way to store the Pike kayak for the winter?

            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.

            A:

            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.

            Mike, there are Scotty mount attachment pads on the sides behind the seat. Putting the anchor system on the very stern would require you to get creative on fabricating a place to attach it. Could be done with some MacGyvering.

            A:

            Ricardo, here's what I answered for a similar question - "There is room in the Pike for two people. The boat, as it comes, is configured for one person. The seat is anchored to D-rings. To reconfigure it for two people you would probably want to add new D-rings to make room to move the existing seat back and make a place for a front seat." For the type of dual use you mention you could probably just put in something like a Crazy Creek Chair, Item # 71406.01, and not worry about cinching it in.

          Q:

          How does this handle in the wind? I'm probably only looking at about 200 pounds between gear and person and wondering how this handles in the middle of a lake with wind. Particularly relative to a non-IK.

            I was just fishing a lake in this boat a few days ago. It handled fine in the wind but when ever i stopped to fish I was definitely moving with the breeze. Nothing to crazy. I would just fish up wind and let it push me along. That being said I'll probably invest in an anchor at some point.

            A:

            It will be about the same as a hard sided k of he same profile. It will not be quite as responsive due to the floor/bottom. Given the ease of transport and solid construction the Pike will more than suffice for what you are wanting to do just not as fast as a non IK. Trade off is well worth it.

            A:

            It does not include a pump, Mark. We carry multiple pump options, both hand and electric. You need a high pressure pump for the drop-stitch floor insert. The Super Pump, Item # 80016.02, is probably the least expensive option; it allows you to pump on both the up and down stroke to quickly put in the major volume of air in the tubes and floor, then switch to only pumping on the downstroke to get the higher pressure. If you have questions, give us a call, 800.635.5202.

            No. You'll need to buy a pump. I got the $44 high pressure hand pump from NRS's website. I cant remember the specific name but it was $44ish. It does a good job of getting the floor ridged enough to stand on.

            A:

            Depends on the use. If you are launching and paddling through surf it will be wet, Rapids it will be wet but if you are on slower rivers, lakes or flat water sea kayaking then the solid drop stitch floor, storage net and the ability to strap and store gear on the tubes via the d- rings will keep your gear dry.
            One other off topic note- if you are launching in surf do not put your rod in the rod holder until past the breakers. I learned the hard way and need my 8wt repaired!
            Great, versatile IK!

            Ryan, the advantage of a self-bailing floor is that water that splashes over the sides can drain out through the bail holes. So, unless you are in conditions where waves are constantly coming in you shouldn't be constantly wet.

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            As you can see from the reviews, the Pike is a great fishing platform. An inflatable won't have the control of a hard shell for ocean surfing but you can certainly catch some waves. The removable skegs (fins) will help with control and you'll probably find that shifting the seat position for the different uses will improve performance. All-in-all, I think the Pike will work well for what you propose.
