2019 Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12 - Guardian
The Pro Angler is still the kayak of choice for competition and serious anglers. packing so much space and storage onto such a stable platform. The 12 has always been popular with anglers wanting the stability and space, without the bulk of the PA14.
There’s a non-skid deck for standing—a huge advantage for sight kayak fishing—and acres of H-Rail for mounting rod holders and electronics. All this on a spacious 14-foot platform. Hobie’s unique MirageDrive with Glide Technology provides efficient, quiet propulsion and the new Guardian Transducer cover.
Guardian Retractable Transducer Shield
The retractable Shield protects transducer on impact and retracts away for transport. Built-in transducer mount allows side scanning for optimal fishfinder performance. Pre-installed thru-hull cable plugs allow quick, no-drill, no-glue fishfinder installation.
What we like: Its a really maneuverable little Kayak, and paddles great. We sell most of these to people who want the storage and space of the pro Angler - but cannot store or transport the 14 easily. IThe addition of the Guardian makes transport even easier.
