EDDYLINE SCORES GOLD WITH AWARD-WINNING FISHING KAYAK STAR STRUCK


“And the winner is... Eddyline C-135!” When Mike Nussman, president of American


Sportfishing Association, announced the winner in Best Boat category at the ICAST tradeshow last summer, I wasn’t surprised. When he brought Tom Remsing and crew back up on stage to take Best in Show, I wasn’t surprised, either. For the past four years, fishing kayaks have taken the cake at the show’s annual press-choice awards. And Eddyline’s C-135 was a shoe-in. This kayak is as impressive on the show floor as


on the water. Eddyline took their thermoforming expertise to the next level with the C-135. The kay- aks have a sparkly, shiny finish that is as tough as it is sexy. The process also makes the boat at least 10 pounds lighter than similarly sized rotomolded boats.


Eddyline partnered with YakAttack to offer a special edition that comes rigged with Zooka Tube rod holders, GearTracs, VisiCarbon Pro light, cup holder, anchor trolley and even a special edition grey BlackPak. The base model is also available without the bling. A bow hatch and cockpit hatch with insert pro- vide enough usable storage that an angler can leave the crate at home on quick trips. The cockpit hatch is also large enough to hold a small car battery with

enough power to run electronics and a trolling mo- tor. Deck padding provides comfort and traction for a long day of stand-up fishing. I was most ex- cited about the Cloud 10 seat. The frame seat fea- tures Cloud 10’s anti-microbial, marine-grade foam and solar weave fabric that is breathable, supportive and durable. The C-135 boasts four seat positions achieved by moving the seat up, down, back and out in molded channels on the gunwales. With all the hype on the ICAST show floor, I


couldn’t wait to get the C-135 on the water. My op- portunity finally came a month later when I picked the kayak up from Appomatox River Sports (www. paddleva.com) in Hampton, Virginia, and took the boat to my favorite test grounds at Owl Creek in Virginia Beach. The first indication that this boat is special came when I picked it up. Light. Even with the YakAt- tack accessories attached and BlackPak loaded with tackle boxes, snacks, water and gear, the C-135 is light enough to use a small cart to move it to the launch ramp. The low weight and smooth finish come into


play when the wheels meet the pavement. This boat glides through the water. For a stand-up fishing kayak with wide stance and high seat, the C-135 paddles with the efficiency of a performance boat.


A channeled hull keeps the boat tracking straight. The fine entry on the stern and bow move through the water with little resistance. And the C-135 per- forms equally as well with the angler seated in the low position or standing on the seat in the high po- sition and using a SUP paddle to stalk fish. The C-135 paddles and fishes as good as it looks. And it looks really good. —Ric Burnley
