2019 Hobie Cat Mirage Pro Angler 17T


Hobie Cat
Mirage Pro Angler 17T



With innovative multiple seating options for one or two casters, the 17T is the king of fishing kayaks.

Set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating (extra tall) in the in-line tandem configuration (guide style), face- to-face (ideal for fishing with small fry), or as a single (so much space!); three steering handles cover all the possibilities. Fishing rod storage both front and rear holds an astounding dozen rods—bring the entire quiver. Customize accessory placement on more than 20 feet of H-Rail system. Both users can stand and kayak fish in comfort and each cockpit is fitted with a large rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management system; there's even additional under-seat storage. An aft battery platform stands ready to house a 12v trolling motor battery, a cooler or crate to carry even more gear. Now available with the Guardian Transducer Shield, a retractable shield that protects your transducer on impact and retracts away for transport.
