An earlier version of this story focused on a Wilderness Systems product that was held back from ICAST – an 11th hour decision. For now, let’s leave it as something cool is coming. Wilderness Systems reps are promising more information at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in August.

Value-oriented kayak maker Perception is showing off two new Pescador Pro models at ICAST. Available in 10 and 12 foot models, the Pescador is built around a stadium style elevated 2-position seat – a popular feature on recent mainline fishing kayaks. A large bow hatch cover conceals a bow storage well. A second one is in the stern. MSRPs and release dates were not available.
