With a wider seat well and stern stingers to carry volume in the rear of the boat, the Prowler Big Game is BIG on stability and comfort. Plenty of storage space, and a redesigned drainage system for a drier ride, make the Big Game perfect for going after the 'big one'.

O.K. Prowler Big Game Angler for Big Fisherman...

I upgraded from the Wilderness Systems Pungo to the Ocean Kayak Big Game Angler 2 years ago. I had no complaints with the Pungo, just kinda "outgrew" it. I'm 6'3" and well past 350lbs and the Big Game does great! It is slow, but it's ok, so am I. I don't see me doing any white water rapids or sea touring. I bought it to fish out of, and that is what it does best. Stability is extremely well, haven't fallen in yet and storage space is also nice. I upgraded to the comfort deluxe backrest with the optional hydration pack that attaches to the seat back, and I also have an anchor trolley rig on it. I'm planning on attaching a small trolling motor (30-36lbs... haven't decided yet) and fish finder hopefully this year.

Great kayak for fishing! If you get one you won't be disappointed.

Prowler Big Game Review

I purchased my BG about 2 years ago. I knew it was not the fastest yak about, though it's no slouch neither considering its weight and width. I wanted stability as most of my fishing is at night out at sea. The stability is simply awesome, I've not even come close to falling out of it. It's very easy to rig, plenty of deck space giving you a lot of options. Fit the center hatch and a rudder and you've got a great fishing yak. If you're intending to paddle miles on most outings this probably isn't the yak for you. The speed is ok, I can paddle a steady 3-4 knots with little effort. Tracking is ok, though the fitment of a rudder improves the tracking and makes the whole paddling experience far better. Plenty of tankwell space back aft with a large front hatch, just loads of space.
The standard seat is ok, though I'd recommend an upgrade for those longer trips on the water. Overall, a great fishing yak.

OK PBG

Ocean Kayak knows they have a winner on their hands with the OK Prowler Big Game. At nearly 13ft (12ft-9in), this monster of a kayak (69lbs), will handle any fishing condition. Gripes about it being slow are understandable, but fishing is all about patience, even when getting to the fishing grounds. (It's not the destination, but the journey.) Stability is a key factor for me, being 6'6", 260lbs, and this yak meets my requirements.

Looking forward to taking it out in the surf sometime. Already rigged for fishing, with an anchor trolley and zig cleat, I'll probably upgrade the seat by next year. Other add-ons include front rod holders, the center hatch and a fishfinder as well. This yak will carry massive loads, (up to 600lbs), so as a fisherman, I have no worries about bringing gear for camping trips. The polyethylene construction is solid and the front hatch features a battery holder that is off the bottom of the boat, keeping it dry. The boat does catch a bit of drift in the wind, but an anchor or stakeout pole generally solves this. And being a heavy kayak, it is recommended that a cart is purchased for transport to and from the water.

Having longer legs, I have no problem dipping my feet off the sides, and it's a refreshing way to fish. Hull slap is moderate, and can be tamed with more weight in the bow hatch. When transporting by car, it is recommended that the boat be put deck-side down, to save yourself $ at the pump. 36" wide crossbar pads are available that do the job nicely. I hope this review is helpful. Tight lines.

Love my Big Game,

A great dry boat not for trolling or covering great distants kind of heavy at 69#. As stable as they get, I sit side ways with my feet in the water. I have never gotten wet.
