Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Angler Kayak Review

Building on the main features of the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120, the Angler version of this kayak is one of the most versatile of fishing vehicles around.

Doing this product review revealed to our team that this best-selling model succeeds where many other angling kayaks fail. While its size isn’t that immense, this SOT kayak makes up for it in performance. Tracking, stability and comfort are all at the forefront of this upgraded Tarpon 120.

In addition, there is considerable size for any sized angler and their extensive gear needs. If you are looking for a solid kayak that won’t break the bank, we can recommend this Wilderness Systems kayak.
