  1. Sorry I thought I hit submit Thursday. But I decided I’m going to hang on to the kayak. Realized come spring if I wanted a second kayak for guests I wouldn’t be able to find the same deal without traveling absurd distances. Going to close this out.
  2. Sorry no wheels included. Only have one pair which I need for my Revo.
  3. It has the tacklebox holder but when I got the kayak it did not come with the actual tackle boxes. It does have the white bucket in front. My understanding is that is not standard and something like $65.
  4. FYI boat is also located in Philadelphia area
  5. Wheels are not included with the kayak. Hull is in great shape can tell it was fished out off but no concerning marks. It comes with an oar. Electrical tape is for added grip. No upgrades are added on the Pro Angler. I purchased this kayak and brought it to the bay one time for a family member to use. Too cumbersome compared to what I’m use to. I got a good deal on it so I’m passing that on to the next person.
  6. Removed from other site to repost on SOL due to interest from an SOL member. Unlocked
  7. Awesome response lol. Thank you
  8. Is this thread a giant troll or does he really think that dolphin is a seal?
  9. Closing due to posting elsewhere from lack of interest
  10. Yup, I was there with my buddy, Evan. First time launching there for me. There was a ton of fish out there. Even saw a whale. The sand eel jig is my favorite thing to use when fishing out front. Caught sea bass, porgies, bonito and a weakie on it Friday.
  11. I ran into some Albies Friday as well. At first couldn’t get them to bite metal but threw on an epoxy and hooked up twice on 4 casts. Also jigged up a small bonito and weakfish
  12. Will get alot of strange looks as well if you start talking about bunker down south. I believe they also use the term Bonita to reference Albies. Or they'll just call it a trash fish, while its a prize gem up here lol
  13. The AI is an impressive kayak but felt too much for what I was doing. Too much to transport and bring to the beach, the tramps are nice but then you can’t fold the amas in to try to land fish. Also a big reason was mine was pre lowrance ready. Wanted my transducer in the water for down imaging and the swing arm was way too loud to drag in the water. Like I was saying if you’re doing a lot of fishing on the open water and need to cover ground then it’s an awesome kayak. If I was living somewhere we’re you could chase pelagics from the shore then I would still have it.
  14. Correct. Before both boats were named Adventure. However the Adventure Island was the same hull as the regular Adventure however with the larger mast hole and various sailing hardware. Now the 16” kayak is called the Revo 16 and no longer an Adventure. The Adventure Island is a different hull now. A lot heavier apparently.
  15. I had a 2014 Adventure Island. This was right before they re did it and added a lot of extra weight to the new hull, re did the ama’s and added the lawn chair seat. Before I purchased it I thought I would be using the sail all the time to cover a ton of ground and find fish. After I purchased it and was using it I realized how much extra you have to carry and set up. I’ve hit some impressive speeds on it, that you will not hit on a regular Revo 16. However I think the negatives outweighed the benefits. Such as always having the mast line right next to your head, and for me I had to re arrange how I normally store my rods as the mast line would catch on the rods. It is an awesome kayak, however its very niche. I now have a Revo 16 with the lawn chair seat and this is my favorite kayak I’ve had so far. If you already have a daily peddle kayak to use then the AI is an awesome addition. However I don’t think its an everyday kayak if you’re fishing structure and in the back bays. If all you do is fish the ocean beyond the breakers then maybe its a different story.
