A throw-and-go kayak for bass fishing

Feelfree’s Moken 10 weighs just 65 pounds and, at 10 feet long, is easy to cartop or slide into a pickup bed. I bought a desert camo model for $799 from Mainstream Tackle & Outdoors in Galesburg, Mich. It should shine for pulling over fallen trees in streams infested with untouched smallmouth.
At 6 feet, 2 inches and 220 pounds, I found the chair remarkably comfy with or without Kayak Kushions. With the chair in low position, the boat was plenty stable — it’s rated to carry 440 pounds. The yak was more tippy with the chair set high.
The Moken 10 is easy to get to the water without a cart. You’re not dragging it; you’re actually rolling it on Feelfree’s built-in Wheel in the Keel.
A downside? The four factory-installed tracks are wider than most standard tracks and require adapters for non-Feelfree accessories. (Six adapters from YakAttack cost $25.)
The yak comes with two flush-mounted rod holders aft of the chair. They feature thin bungees that hold rods securely. We installed a YakAttack Omega Pro rod holder to carry a third rod horizontally. A standard milk crate fits perfectly behind the seat.

Two side storage areas designed for 3600-size trays simply do not work — the boxes slide under the seat. However, this is an easy fix and, overall, we like this throw-and-go yak. We’ll show it again here after it’s fully rigged for stream duty. Learn more at feelfreeus.com.
