I have had this out twice now and love it. It sets up in 5 minutes and the take-down is shorter. It easily fits into my car trunk, is light enough for me to carry and is the only way I could use and transport a kayak at my age (70 year old woman). Although there was a delay in the order due to the pandemic, Eco Fishing was wonderful in their communications with me. Thanks Jared.
With the onset of COVID, I was looking for a simple way to get outdoors. I landed on the Inlet Kayak by Oru and ordered through the team at Eco Fishing Shop who kept me informed through the entire process. With delays in manufacturing and slower shipping the team at Eco was transparent and kind to works with. I highly recommend them and will continue to refer my friends and family. Thanks Jared and team!
I live in a remote village in Alaska and purchased this kayak with the intention of hunting out of it for moose. After some practice it sets up easily and within 5-10 min. It packs up relatively small and light which makes it super easy to fit in a skiff with my other gear. We set up camp with the skiff and then drop into creeks and sloughs with the kayaks. The stability is great and it is easy to steer. Wind does push it around because it is so light, but so far that hasn’t been an impossible issue. I am able to fit a small pack behind the seat and have my rifle positioned between my legs with the barrel propped up on the front edge. The kayak is easy to walk over super shallow portions of the floats without difficulty. It is easy to empty of water. My only complaint is that there is no “cushion” on the seat. This is easily remedied though with a seat cushion I already own. I still plan on getting a moose with this kayak (yes, I know, it will take about 8-10 trips to get the meat out with it), but I look forward to using it throughout the year.
I recently purchased the Big Fish 105 through the EcoFishing Shop.
The service was personal and fast, and I got my kayak in only 3 days.
The Big Fish 105 is a beautiful kayak with utility. I wanted a kayak less than 12’, but it had to be stable enough to stand in, offer plenty of storage space, and allow for seamless installation of a fish finder and other electronics. The Big Fish 105 has all of this and I just love the green camo... I think it gives it a really cool look.
I love taking it out for recreational paddling and fishing trips. The open layout makes it versatile for whatever you want to carry, including generous space and easy access to your rods, tackle, and other gear.
It’s stable and smooth in the water, but can be difficult to load and unload from vehicles with higher roofs due to the inherent weight. Make sure that you invest in the proper rack, loading equipment, and cart to move your Big Fish around.
Overall, I don’t think that I could’ve chosen a better kayak than the Big Fish to have all of the features that I wanted for less than $1,000. I really love this thing.
Customer Service was great. Good communication, fast shipping. Kayak was well protected during shipping, no issues with damage. The shipping company was professional and appeared professional. I actually had a guy deliver my Kayak that didn’t appear like he was a junkie . Good experience, would order from again.
