CRESCENT'S FIRST SPECIALIZED FISHING KAYAK DESIGNED TO ELEVATE YOUR FISHING EXPERIENCE ON ANY WATERWAY
We’re stoked to bring you our first kayak and flagship model of the Crescent Specialized Fishing Line. The Shoalie combines our signature paddling performance and platforms with systems designed specifically for fishing. These systems help anglers efficiently manage their rods, paddles, tackle, electronics, and comfort on the water. This is a truly versatile kayak that caters to every type of angler on any waterway.
ROD MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
CRESCENT’S DESIGN UTILIZES THE EXPERIENCE OF AN ELITE-LEVEL KAYAK ANGLER TO CREATE SEVERAL NEW FEATURES ENHANCING ROD STORAGE, STAGING, AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.
From bow to stern, this kayak has everything an angler needs to store and manage rods while on the go or on the water. The Bow Rod Securing System by Rod Saver keeps your rods strapped down during transport. Rod Butt Stops keep them stationary in the cockpit. The front tankwell features our Thru-Hull Rod Locker for safe storage. Channels along the rails holster two additional rods with bungees. Low Profile Rear-Facing Rod Holsters provide quick access at a low angle to keep your rods from hitting limbs and trees.
FORM AND FUNCTIONALITY WERE FUNDAMENTAL IN DESIGNING THIS MODEL. EVERY ASPECT OF THIS KAYAK WAS INTENTIONALLY DESIGNED TO PROVIDE THE MOST VERSATILE PLATFORM POSSIBLE.
The all-new Crescent Cam Track System is a rail and handle system with an integrated adjustable-length carry handle, tow strap, wading belt, and stand assist. The handle is fully removable for mounting accessories. This kayak features our first, molded-in Adjustable Seating System with ample tackle/gear storage. We also integrated our new Roto Release Paddle Park System for easy cross-deck paddle holding or mounting additional accessories. The kayak comes fully loaded with a pad kit, YakAttack GearTracs, PowerPole mounting points, Line Cutter/Hook Sharpener Recesses, and Cupholders.
WE PARTNERED WITH LEADING MANUFACTURERS IN KAYAK FISHING TO SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATE THE MOST INDUSTRY-RENOWNED PRODUCTS INTO THIS MODEL.
We designed this model to incorporate the best manufacturers and gear systems on the market. The Shoalie features YakAttack GearTracs throughout with additional GearTrac mounting options. Dual YakAttack RotoGrip Paddle Holders. An Anchor Wizard can be flush-mounted on either side with rear channels for drag chains or an anchor. Rear mounting points accommodate a Power Pole without affecting the anchor channels. The cockpit features a horizontal recess for a 26” Ketch Board making for easy and secure fish measuring. Boonedox Landing Gear mounting points are located on the rear tankwell.
A SPECIALIZED HULL DESIGN
DESIGNED TO TRACK STRAIGHT, PADDLE FAST, AND TACKLE ANYTHING IN ITS WAY
The hull on the Shoalie is incredibly quiet with no hull slap in rough conditions. The medium rocker profile is agile in tighter water. Our bulbous nose adds volume to keep the bow riding high through rapids and surf. Additional volume to outside chines makes for quicker second stability engagement and greater stability. The compressed hull reduces draft for shallower water navigation. A Pronounced keel makes for excellent tracking/ straight paddling across all waterways.
THE NEXT EVOLUTION IN CRESCENT'S PLATFORM
