NuCanoe Kayaks: Built for All Water & Every Adventurer

NuCanoe Kayaks: Built for All Water & Every Adventurer

Hunting, Fishing, Solo or Tandem

NuCanoe started as an idea in 2006. Tim Niemier, founder of Ocean Kayak, wanted to put “a billion butts in boats.” This idea led to the innovative NuCanoe design that enabled people to do things on the water – fish, hunt, row, dive, crab, paddle, or just relax.

18 years later, NuCanoe's ascension as a premiere do-it-all kayak platform continues to rise. Stability and maneuverability are a few standouts for every NuCanoe model. Don't let their size fool you, they are quick, easy to paddle and some of the most stable kayaks on the market. What sets NuCanoe apart from others? They are designed with anglers AND hunters in mind.

NuCanoe kayaks come as open platforms with ample accessory tracks. They are completely customizable using their vast amount of accessories to rig out your perfect kayak thats adapted to where you like to paddle and which outdoor adventure your prefer. Let's look at how you can match the right kayak for you and some of NuCanoe's best kayaks and accessories.

Matching the Right Fishing Kayak to Your Demands

The optimal fishing kayak type is very much determined by local water conditions, physical abilities, and fishing preferences. For instance, a kayak used on the calm still water of a pond is going to look vastly different from what a kayak angler is going to need to navigate the fast-moving waters of a rapid-dominated river. Price point can vary a great deal which may also sway many buyers in a certain direction. Create a budget for your kayak while also considering what you may want for accessories. Factoring in accessories to your budget can help set an appropriate price point and save you a headache later.

Another thing to consider is what your physical abilities are. Someone with lower body joint issues may have a harder time using a pedal drive vs. a fin drive or powered kayak. If you are going to be on the water for a really long time or fishing in tournaments, powered kayaks allow anglers to save energy to focus on fishing for longer periods. NuCanoe kayaks are uniquely prepared for motors with square transoms and models with built in bow mounting brackets.

We can share our expertise until we are blue in the face, but a fellow anglers words often mean more.
