Old Town Preda­tor PDL

Sport Fishing Gear Guide - - Kayaks & More -

This Best of Show Boats cat­e­gory at icast 2016 is a pedal-driven fish­ing boat from Old Town Ca­noe. A con­sole drops into the cen­ter of the boat, al­though in­stead of the con­sole sport­ing a trolling mo­tor, this one has ped­als. The pedal sys­tem has a 10.3:1 gear ra­tio, which lets an­glers reach speeds up to 9 kph (5.5 mph). A weed­less prop pow­ers through the wa­ter and the one-handed rud­der con­trol en­ables tight turns. With a draft of just 40 cm (16 in) this 4 m (13’) boat eas­ily nav­i­gates shal­low wa­ters.
