This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in March of 2019. If land-based fishing doesn't provide you and your buddy with enough exercise, consider trying one of these 2-person kayaks on your next expedition. Each has plenty of room for a pair of anglers and their gear, and they offer sufficient stability to allow you to fight with any huge bass you hook. Stay away from enclosed sit-inside models, though, as they can be hard to exit if you flip over.

Editor's Notes

March 29, 2019:

There are several fine inflatable models on this list, and any one of them would make an excellent purchase for the fisherman who only gets out on the lake occasionally. If kayak fishing is more of an every-weekend event for you than a sporadic hobby, though, you'll probably want to invest in a more solid option, which is why the Vibe Yellowfin took the top spot.

One of the most important criteria to consider when doing your research is how much room you'll have available; after all, you'll need to accommodate two people and a whole lot of gear. The Ocean Kayak Malibu offers plenty of leg room, while the BKC UH-TK181 is chock-full of storage spaces.

That being said, sometimes you'll have to get out on the water by yourself, which is another reason why the Vibe Yellowfin scored such high marks. You can quickly change the seating around to suit a single paddler, ensuring that you can still enjoy your weekend even if your partner flakes. If, on the other hand, your problem is you often need to make room for a third, the Sea Eagle SE370 Sport Pro should be high on your list — especially if your third has four legs and barks.
