Crescent LiteTackle II Walkthrough: What's New with this Classic Paddlecraft?

Florida Sportsman Executive Editor Jeff Weakley walks us through the newest iteration of the LiteTackle series from Crescent Kayaks, the LiteTackle II. The Crescent LiteTackle II is a classic paddle kayak with excellent tracking capabilities all packaged into an affordable kayak platform perfect for multi-use adventures. 

IDEAL APPLICATION: Crafted for adventure with an emphasis on paddling performance, comfort, and customization. From afternoon river fishing trips to multi-day flatwater camping missions, the LiteTackle II was designed to tackle it all. Traversing shallow waters is a strong point of paddle kayaks, and vessels like these are also appreciated by kayakers making beach launches.

OVERVIEW: Multi-purpose paddling kayak benefiting from a proven hull shape and recent innovations including a new tankwell cam strap storage, a high-low seat, molded drink holders and tools/lure spaces, new forward hatch, forward and stern YakAttack GearTracs (plus a center console track, perfect for electronics), and a stern designed to mount a Power-Pole or Torqueedo, complete with access plate on rear deck. Dawn, Emerald Coast, Moonrock and Moss colors available.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES: The second generation of Crescent’s flagship model features new molded-in features like high and low seating, rod stagers, versatile storage options, and more. Same patented hull design and paddling performance of its predecessor. Cockpit floor has recesses for pad kit upgrade, among several options Crescent offers for this boat. MSRP: $1,199
