New kayaks and gear at ICAST

Every year at ICAST, one of the ever-growing areas is kayaks and kayak accessories. Here’s a look at some of the latest and greatest, starting with this NRS Pike Pro inflatable in the New Product Showcase.
This Esquif Adrondack Elite Angler canoe weighs only 45 pounds, and while it isn’t a kayak, you could get some fishing done in it for sure.
This sleek Mirage Passport 12.0 R is the latest from Hobie.
This was the strangest “kayak” at ICAST. The Trident Explorer uses a rotating foot paddle, integrated wheels and a huge fishing platform.
YakAttack’s Blackpacks are showing up on tons of kayaks these days, and they’ve added these divider cords inside so you can stow your tackle trays and whatever else easily.
Yakattack also added rotating rod holders to their Blackpak, in case you need a lower profile going under a tree or tunnel.
Also, new colors for their line of kayak accessories.
Here’s their three sizes of Blackpak.
