Vanhunks 10'4 Shad Fishing Kayak

  • The shad 10’4ft kayak is a kayak ahead of its time, with all its attributes molded into an excellent craft for the avid fisherman and the relaxed paddler who wants to take in the sights.

    The Shad is standard fitted with a removable Tool Pod, equipped with the Tool Pod; this is an exciting maneuverable 10’4 fishing Kayak offering you excellent stability. Remove the tool pod and you can fit a fin drive, transforming your Kayak in a few easy steps. Should you wish to add a propeller drive instead, not a problem; the Shad is fully compatible with Fin Drive or Propeller Drive. You have multiple upgrade options in one Kayak. The Shad even have inserts for an electric motor on the Kayak’s stern should you decide to add an electric motor.

    When looking at the hull design, stability was paramount, and the flat bottom with Pontoon Hull keeps the Kayak on an even keel and therefore allows confidence to sit or even stand easily. The shape and sleek lines in the hull design allow for much-needed speed and easy maneuverability. The Double Pontoon Hull allows the easy flow of water through the channels, increasing traction and increasing speed.

    The Shad has an easy-to-operate adjustable foot control or hand-controlled rudder system and the system is interchangeable from one system to another. The Deep adjustable rudder provides great direct action and limits drift therefore keeping the speed of the Kayak. As a bonus, the Rudder blades are compatible with the Bixpy motor.

    The Shad is equipped with a large equipment hatch at the Kayak’s bow, a round hatch behind the paddler, and a large Tank-Well in the stern, fitted with bungee cords to secure your load. The raised deluxe aluminum seating gives you a slightly elevated approach that assists with paddling and visibility and keeps you dry should there be excess water in the craft. The seating is adjustable to the front or the back and runs on a track system.

    Overall, the Shad is a great kayak on both flat water, lakes, rivers, and smooth sea conditions. Its overall design will make your fishing experience fun.

The shipping was really fast. It actually came way earlier then I expected. Can't wait to go out on the river in my new SHAD.

Awesome Kayak

I still have not used it for fishing but it surely handles great on the water. It really glides nicely along the water and the storage compartments are perfect for anything you need to carry with you. The weight is perfect and I can handle it just by myself. Great product. Thank you Kayakish

Very Stable Kayak

A stable Kayak was all I wanted and this Kayak is just that. Me and my Son went for fishing last week and we absolutely adored this Kayak. The Shad glides through the water with ease and there is plenty of storage space and dry storage.

Great Design

Wow! Just wow. I have owned many other kayaks and this Vanhunk Shad is my absolute favourite. I fish very often in swift water rivers and this kayak handles the current like you will not believe. It is extremely nimble and paddles awesome. When I am paddling in a big river, i drop on my pedal drive and cover almost twice the distance as earlier. I believe fishing & paddling is the best way to fish as you can move in and out on cover and need not use the anchor. This has to be one of the most versatile kayak in the market. Kudos. Highly Recommended.
