It’s no secret kayak fishing is one of the fastest growing segments of the recreational sport fishing market. Seen on nearly every body of water throughout the entire state, the eco-friendly and stealthy approach is hard to beat. Drawing off the enormous success of the Mirage Pro Angler 14, the newly released Pro Angler 12 is arguably the most versatile fishing kayak in existence.

Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12

Lightweight and compact, this innovative fishing platform is incredibly stable and has ample space to securely store up to six rods. What further sets this kayak apart from the competition is the unique MirageDrive. Revolutionizing the sport as we know it, two pedals drive a pair of underwater fins for the most efficient kayaking ever. Go faster and further than ever before, all with hands free operation so you can be ready to fire off the next cast. In addition, it requires less effort than traditional paddling.

Beyond this innovative propulsion system, Vantage seating provides ultimate comfort and adjustability in a lightweight, easily removable form, along with their Boa system that provides a one-handed dial for full range of lumbar support adjustment. Additional fish-friendly features include under-seat tackle storage, large front hatch with removable liner, anchor trolley system, livewell cargo area, retractable rudder system and a rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management. Furthermore, the Lowrance-ready built-in transducer mount features pre-installed thru-hull cable plugs so you can install a compatible Lowrance unit in minutes. This is the ultimate personal fishing platform with boundaries. Hobie Cat, 760.758.9100,
