Choose the 12.5 Foot Tandem Fishing Kayak for agile maneuvering, with six rod holders built to be the perfect 2-3 Person explorer kayak.
If you are looking for a new daily driver for your paddle trips, the TK 219 is a great fishing kayak overall you might want to consider.
The kayak is designed for two people, but with its excellent design, you won’t have too much trouble maneuvering even by yourself. Although you can find bigger kayaks, we feel like the TK 219 hits the spot with its 12 feet 2 inches in length. This makes the kayak comfortable for two people even with quite a lot of gear, and it also makes the kayak very agile on the waters.
Inside the hull, everything is placed perfectly for both paddlers, which means you won’t struggle to reach whatever you need. Both paddlers get an articulating rod holder right in front of their seat, and two flush-mounted rod holders. The rear flush-mounted holders are somewhat awkwardly placed behind the seat, but you will get used to them quite quickly.
You can store things just about anywhere on the TK219. There’s a hollowed-out area in the front, two watertight storage compartments with dry bag inserts, and a rear cargo area supported by bungee cord tie-downs. The kayak’s maximum weight capacity is 440 pounds, which is plenty for two people and basic fishing gear.
If you are more into fishing than paddling, you can attach a trolling motor on the TK 219 and enjoy hands-free fishing while cruising on the lake.
The aluminum upright seats are very comfortable, and with their adjustability, you can easily spend a few hours on the waters without feeling any cramps in your body.
On the side of the hull, there are carrying handles that also act as paddle parks. You simply clip your paddles into the handles and you don’t have to worry about them wandering away while you fish. The paddles included are made from aluminum and are 86 inches in length. They are reliable and sturdy, so even if you apply more pressure they can withstand it easily.
BKC TK 219 comes with a few color options like blue, camo, grey camo, army green, desert sand, red or yellow. What’s great is that BKC kayaks use a premium plastic material that helps the colors from deteriorating fast under strong sunlight.
The TK 219 balances both performance and comfort to its fullest potential. It’s a great option for rougher conditions due to its maneuverability, and the added features inside the hull make this kayak perfect for experienced kayakers.
