KAYAK WALKTHROUGH VIDEO
Take an in-depth walkthrough of the LiteTackle II with Crescent Owner, James Derbecker, on Elm Island in Georgian Bay, Ontario.
PATENTED HULL DESIGN
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES WITH ANY FISHING KAYAK IS THE SHAPE AND DESIGN OF THE HULL—SOMETHING WE AT CRESCENT TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN.
The LiteTackle II is built on the already successful hull design of the original LiteTackle and the signature paddling performance Crescent is known for. The hull has a bulbous bow that rides higher in rougher water and adds volume for standing in the cockpit. A full-length keel enhances tracking and speed. The sidewalls sit right at the water level to reduce drag and enhance secondary stability. The hull also features a transducer scupper that works with graphs mounted on the new cockpit console.
THE NEW HATCH SYSTEM & CONSOLE
THE NEW HATCH FEATURES ADDED SECURITY AND COMPRESSION WITH ACCESS TO THE ENTIRETY OF THE KAYAK'S HULL
We designed a more secure and feature-rich hatch with a webbed hinge and dual pull-tab bungees for added compression and water resistance. An adjustable rod saver keeps rods secure and doubles as a paddle park. We maintained the large tankwell interior with industry-leading storage capacity in the hull. For additional kayak fishing rigging, we incorporated a custom, anodized aluminum GearTrac in the front center console. It’s perfect for mounting graphs to use with the new transducer scupper, a GoPro for filming, or additional rod stagers like the YakAttack Bullwinkle.
COCKPIT & SEAT
AMPLE ROOM, ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT, AND INFINITELY CUSTOMIZEABLE
The cockpit on the LiteTackle II is open and clean with an extra rigid deck providing a solid standing platform. Flush-mounted YakAttack GearTracs, adjustable foot tracks, bungee paddle parks, and stash pockets come standard. The cockpit floor has a 2mm recess for our pad kit upgrade. Dual cupholders with bungees can accommodate all standard beverage sizes and stash trays are perfect for easily storing your shades, sunscreen, and tackle. Adjustable Height Seating offers ample tackle/gear storage under the seat. Our fully adjustable seats are hand-made in the Southeastern U.S. and feature a padded seat bottom. The new single-strap compression system keeps the seat extra secure and switching between the high and low positions a breeze.
DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE MORE GEAR AND PROVIDE MORE INTERNAL ACCESS FOR CUSTOM RIGGING OPTIONS
The passthrough rear tankwell in the LiteTackle II doesn’t compromise on storage fitting all popular coolers, drybags, and YakAttack BlackPaks. Dual mighty mounts add additional rigging options. We integrated our new Tankwell Cam Strap Storage System (patent pending), the quickest and most efficient way to secure gear. YakAttack GearTracs with adjustable bungees offers additional storage and rigging options. The rear deck plate doubles the internal storage and hull access—perfect for mounting a Power Pole or Torqeedo to the stern of your LiteTackle II.
