Hello everyone so this is the review of the heritage angler 10 review and setup of what I use. Starting with the specs it’s a 10 foot kayak and has a max capacity of 300 pounds which is more than enough to grow into.Check Price and Availability Here
Starting from the front there is a nice carrying handle which is very sturdy, and up in the front there is also a dry hatch and inside you can keep many items, it goes as far as the back of the kayak so there is a lot of storage space there. It is about maybe 8-10 inches wide so you can fit just about anything in there.
It comes with a rod holder which is a pretty nice quality and fits big and regular rods just fine and is very adjustable and already comes with it so you don’t have to shell out to buy a new one.
In the middle console you can keep different items personally I keep my anchor there, a three pound anchor and I have some rope for that you can just as easily put a fish finder there. Nearby it has a cup holder where you can keep your anchor or bottled water.
On the sides it has some very nice foot pegs that can be adjusted all the way to the back dependent on your size and preference. There are several holes that allow you to find exactly what suits you and the same on the other side some very durable foot pegs.
Usually I have my whistle on me, always have one of those and I small tackle box just to have handy.
Moving on to the middle area, I usually put a ruler, a 30 inch ruler to see how long the fish are and nearby I have my paddle and a paddle leash connected to the side handle to make sure it doesn’t get loose the kayak comes with two side handles on either side.
The seating is very roomy and comfortable as far as the seat itself it only comes with back rests and no bottom padding but usually that is just for support if you’re wearing your pfd usually it’s just for support since you have the cushion of the life jacket there. You could always put a seat there near the bottom cushion but for me out on the water it’s pretty comfortable. Nearby I also have my life jacket.
Usually I use a dry box where I can put my camera and other items that you don’t want to get wet there.
At the bottom there are scupper plugs, what I did was get practice golf balls which are foam golf balls which can be picked up at any stores and can fill the scupper plugs. They are a bit cheaper to fill the plugs but if you’re out there and the conditions are tough you can open it up to let the water out I usually keep them closed in the meantime.
In the back there are two flush mount rod holders and you can fit spin and bait casters in fairly well and they are very secure they won’t go anywhere unless you get into some tight brush. They are pretty nice flush mount rod holders.
Farther back there is the hatch and inside the hatch you can keep items I usually keep everything in zip locks back there with your baits and tackles.
The Heritage angler 10 is a great kayak its got a lot of basic features that go great for its price range. Definitely recommend if your looking for something in the middle to low of the pack that still provides you with all the fishing benefits you may need!Check Price and Availability Here
