North Wales Kayak Fishing

This is my review of the Galaxy sturgeon 13.4 sit on top fishing kayak

The sturgeon is 13.4 inches long and 32inches wide it is made from a roto moulded  

Plastic.

When you first un-wrap the galaxy sturgeon you cant help but see it’s a top quality kayak only the best quality materials have been used in this all new kayak

 The shape is striking with water repel lines and a superbly shaped bow for cutting through the water

Image description

The kayak is rigged out superbly with

5 x balanced carry handles

safety grab lines 3 large hatches 2 g-star rod holders and some innovative mouldings not to mention superb colour combinations

Image description

The seating area is designed so that everything is directly at hand and ready to use

The placement of the hatches is ideal for the angler there is even a couple of small mesh pockets ideally placed to store a small tackle box

Starting at the large rectangular sealed bottom hinged tackle storage box the lid of this large hatch is pre marked and drilled for most rod rest types including the g-star system it has 4 pre set places for the g-star rod rest to slot in to .
All the drilled locations have moulded extra plastic underneath so if you fit a self taper it goes in to extra plastic and not through the box it even has a measuring tape marked along both sides and 2 positive locking handles to keep every thing secure.

Once the hatch is open you can see how big it is plenty of room for your fishing tackle and fish finder battery

Moving to the large 10 inch centre hatch/bait tank this is very cleverly designed the kayak comes with 2 scupper bungs for this tank well one with pre drilled holes in it and one solid.

With the drilled bung in water can circulate inside the hatch/tank to keep live bait in top condition.

The new large galaxy tackle box will also fit in here though this is an optional extra to the standard kayaks fittings


Image description

The front storage hatch has a large rubber hatch cover inside the cover is a very large nylon storage bag which can be removed for fitting a trolley inside for stowage then re-fitted for use

Image description
The rear tank well has easy fit bungee system and a moulding for a 1.5kg folding anchor this is superb and holds the anchor and chain safely and securely when not in use

The tank well has a large squared off section to make fitting a crate or box more secure


Image description

Being 13.4 ft long this kayak comes with a superb rudder system which uses strong easy glide silicone inserts for the rudder cables to run smoothly through to the foot pedal controls.

Image description

The kayak uses brass inserts for the fittings like the new g-star system it has several places pre set for later additions like a sliding rail on the front of the kayak to mount extra gadgets like front rod rests ect

Image description

The sleek lines of the hull underneath make this kayak track really well this is a very stable and quick kayak thanks to this hull design

Image description

This is superb kayak it has everything we could ever need its fixtures and fittings are superbly placed and the shape of the hull makes it a very quick stable kayak the addition of the large well placed hatches and tank well place everything directly at the anglers hand the new galaxy sturgeon 13.4 retails at £599.00 this kayak is sure to become the standard amongst us anglers
