Materials Used on the Kayak
The NRS Pike Fishing IK is made with an abrasion-resistant, super think (1.2-mm) 2000-denier PVC material on the two main (side) air chambers. While the material adds extra weight to the boat, it also makes it that much more rugged and durable. The quality Leafield C7 valves are a superior choice for reliably locking in air as well as quick inflation/deflation times.
The high-pressure floor (up to 10 psi) is an inflatable drop-stitch PVC fabric that provides a stable and extremely rigid platform for fishing. It is self-bailing so you can get the water out quickly. The bungee lacing in the bow allows for lashing down your cooler, keg, or tackle box, and the 32 stainless steel D-rings let you rig out your kayak anyway you want.

Three pre-installed Scotty attachment pads are included so you can add a Scotty Baitcaster rod holder, a fish finder, GPS, or anchor mount. There is a pad on the floor at the front of the yak; the other two are on the side tubes next to the paddler.
There are two removable tracking fins so that you can choose the one that best suits the water conditions. As a 50-lb fishing kayak, it is not as easily portable as recreational kayaks are, but as it is designed for fishing, you’ll appreciate the way it is rigged out to carry your gear. As for performance, the shallow draft and narrow beam make it highly maneuverable to get into the tall weeds so you can lurk where the smallmouth hang out.
What We Say
Reviews on the NRS Pike Fishing IK show how impressed owners are with this $995 kayak. It looks good on the water and has the rugged durability to keep you safe and secure in both open water and moving rivers. This sleek IK will track in a straight line far better than a round-nose raft thanks to the skeg attachments. (Two are included: a short skeg for shallow water and a longer skeg for open water.) The Pike is a great inflatable kayak that has been designed exclusively for anglers who don’t want the hassle of a hard-side yak or cumbersome raft on their fishing excursions.
