~ Hobie Cat, manufacturer of quality boats since 1968, has produced a new way to fish the pedal-driven Hobie Mirage Outback Fisherman kayak. This new product has taken kayak fishing to a whole new level, placing Hobie front-and-center in the kayak fishing market. The Outback has everything the serious fisherman needs and wants: stability, speed, comfort and maneuverability. And it comes with molded-in rod holders and trays, storage compartments, a plug-in cart and more!
Powered by Hobie's patented MirageDrive pedal system, fishing from an Outback Fisherman means hands-free propulsion with fingertip maneuvering, effortlessly getting you to the best spots quickly and quietly. Too good to be true, you say?
Hank Parker had his doubts 'til he fished in it, and now describes it as, "a new way to fish in a boat that will take you to places where fish have never seen a lure"!
