Whether it be tackle, scents, dyes, or even fish, this is your go-to for primary storage in the kayak. Right at your feet, you will find a sealed waterproof compartment with a pivoting tackle management system that gives you access to your baits at moment’s notice. Nearby you’ll also be able to control your Guardian Retractable Transducer Shield, allowing you to control your side imagine transducer from your favorite fish finder.

These features provide endless options for customization with all Hobie accessories. The simple slide and lock design won’t require extra hardware or drilling, making customizing as easy as possible. Save space and protect your gear with the built-in horizontal rod holders on each side of the kayak. With the idea of holding six rods on each side, the truth is you can fit many more. No longer will you have to store rods standing up, risking damage from any low-hanging branches or other structures.
Behind your seat, you will find the cargo area; this open space provides the angler with many options depending on the desired outcome. From this area, you’ll be able to reach around your seat and access your fishing crate, cooler, or livewell. These items will be secured with a robust bungee in the cargo area. Whatever you need to store behind you, there is plenty of room to do so. Rubber Mesh Stowage Pockets are placed along each side of the cargo area and behind your seat for quick access. The rubber mesh lasts longer and holds items stronger than traditional webbing. Towards the back on each side of the cargo area are two paddle holders. Designed to hold each section of your two-piece paddle. Keeping an extra paddle on board without sacrificing space and hassle adds to this kayak's versatility. When you need access to your boat's hull, you will find the large 8” sealed hatch, easy to access with a waterproof seal.
