Ascend's ultimate kayak for anglers, the FS128T Sit-On-Top comes packed with features specially designed for fishermen.

The angler-specific design starts with an advanced Tunnel Hull design with a wider transom and flared bow sections for displacement distribution that increases primary and secondary stability. This hull design delivers the stability needed for stand up fishing while also providing solid tracking and easy paddling while moving. The FS128T features a solid casting platform for stand up fishing with a pull up assist strap to help you switch from sitting to standing fishing. The removable 360 degree swivel seating system combines 3 height options with a padded and adjustable, ergonomic seat you can swing to face the direction you wish to fish. Designed for anglers, this kayak features a fully adjustable rod tender, 4 flush mount rod holders, and molded rod tip stagers in the bow-side deck to hold rods lying prone in the kayak. Multiple storage options include watertight storage hatches with deck plate access in the bow and stern, a watertight personal hatch with deck plate near the seat, and molded storage areas with bungee in the bow and stern. The FS128T also offers a medium rectangular storage hatch with watertight cover plate in front of its seat and a larger version right behind the seat. Deep molded storage trays in the sides accept all kinds of fishing gear and tackle, while the molded dash provides catch all trays, a cupholder, and recessed areas for tackle trays beneath the seat. Adjustable foot braces provide a comfortable base while paddling for anglers from 5'2" up to 6'2". The threaded and sealed drain plug allows you to quickly drain excess water, while the 8 self-bailing scupper drains maximize draining in rough waters. The 1-1/2" scupper drains also accept kayak transducers for fish finders (sold separately). Waterproof Butyl is applied to 100% of the components installed to help maintain dry storage and further reduce water intrusion. Kayak also features an anchor trolley, pop-up paddle holders, and performance grip handles. Made from the highest quality virgin high density linear polyethylene. Length: 12' 8". Width: 33". Weight: 84 lbs. Maximum weight capacity: 350 lbs. Made in USA.

Great Yak

Great fishing yak, incredibly stable! I am 6ft 3in tall, 258lbs and have no trouble standing up and fishing from it at all, it has an unbelievable amount of storage, convenient inset areas under seat for tackle trays, rod holders behind seat and in front. Only problem I have found is that I had to remove hatches and silicone them, they did leak some.
