PropulsionThe leg-powered Angler means no paddling, less noise, and more casts per outing. Translation, more fish. The Hydrobike drive was developed 25 years ago. It spins a highly efficient 12" propeller. It is the most advanced, and longstanding commercially tough pedal drive in the industry. It has proven itself on all oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams in 71 countries. To prove it's endurance Steve Anderson rode the bike 1,180 miles for 68 days UP the Mississippi River from the Gulf of Mexico to St. Cloud, Minnesota in 1994. In 2008, 64 year old Bob Barrett of WA commented that he had been riding his Hydrobike across Puget Sound on his journey to work for 7 years logging over 6000 miles.

Stealth, Peace and Quiet. Therapeutic
The Angler catches fish! With no motor rumbling and no noisy paddles slicing through the water you'll find the fish before they spot you. Sneak up on wary bass with nary a ripple. You'll be up close even in 12" of water. The peacefulness of the Angler allows for a very calm and relaxing experience. And on those depressing days when the fish aren’t biting, you'll be happy to be enjoying nature in solitude with our Angler. You'll be more focused and in touch with your surroundings. It's downright therapeutic!
Stable, Safe, SturdySafe for two or three riders, our rugged Angler can float 600 lbs. We built our first pontoon molds 25 years ago. Our floats will provide you with decades of flotation. The Angler is unsinkable and virtually impossible to tip. You won't worry about standing or losing your balance as you might in kayaks and canoes. Combined with the best stand-up stability in this class, the Hydrobike Angler can take you from fresh water to the open ocean with confidence. Able to handle 4-foot ocean swells, this type of stability simply can't be accomplished in kayaks or canoes.
Deck Space, Capacity, StoragePlenty of deck space, along with ample capacity and storage allows for big riders, lots of gear, and a roomy rock solid platform to wrestle the big ones! The Angler gives you more than double the deck space and much more capacity than fishing kayaks. You can even have a partner stretch out on the side deck for some sun time when the fish refuse to bite. The front storage console with a flip up lid provides extra space protected from the elements where you can store more gear, tackle, bait, ice, or extra clothing. You also get 2 mega sized drink holders molded into your storage console.
Ride High and Dry. Comfortable Vantage PointYou sit mounted high and dry on a platform raised above the waterline ... not below it. This gives you a higher vantage point to look at underwater structure when compared to canoes and fishing kayaks. The seating keeps you upright and high above the water level for an optimal line of sight, viewing angles, and comfort. You can stand and fish all day, or fish comfortably from an elevated seating position. You won't need to struggle to get up and down in the Angler. For those with knee or back issues, the Angler is the answer.
Transportability and PortabilityYou'll enjoy quick tear down and assembly without tools. You'll be in, and out of the water ... packed and ready to go in minutes. Handy carry straps mounted on the front and back of each pontoon make carrying and moving a breeze. All pieces can be transported with a pickup, van, or small trailers. Floats can be mounted on vehicle rooftops with other components stored inside. Our Hydro Pal Trailer is highway ready and the perfect compliment for transporting the Angler.
