Ascend's ultimate kayak for anglers, the FS128T Sit-On-Top comes packed with features specially designed for fishermen.

This hull design delivers the stability needed for stand up fishing while also providing solid tracking and easy paddling while moving. The FS128T features a solid casting platform for stand up fishing with a pull up assist strap to help you switch from sitting to standing fishing. The removable 360 degree swivel seating system combines 3 height options with a padded and adjustable, ergonomic seat you can swing to face the direction you wish to fish. Designed for anglers, this kayak features a fully adjustable rod tender, 4 flush mount rod holders, and molded rod tip stagers in the bow-side deck to hold rods lying prone in the kayak. Multiple storage options include weathertight storage hatches with deck plate access in the bow and stern, a watertight personal hatch with deck plate near the seat, and molded storage areas with bungee in the bow and stern. The FS128T also offers a medium rectangular storage hatch with watertight cover plate in front of its seat and a larger version right behind the seat. Deep molded storage trays in the sides accept all kinds of fishing gear and tackle, while the molded dash provides catch all trays, a cupholder, and recessed areas for tackle trays beneath the seat. Adjustable foot braces provide a comfortable base while paddling for anglers from 5'2" up to 6'2". The threaded and sealed drain plug allows you to quickly drain excess water, while the 8 self-bailing scupper drains maximize draining in rough waters. The 1-1/2" scupper drains also accept kayak transducers for fish finders (sold separately). Waterproof Butyl is applied to 100% of the components installed to help maintain weathertight storage and further reduce water intrusion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharkhunter59 Great product
Bought this kayak because I am 6'1" and 220lbs and needed a kayak that was very stable and had a raised seat so that I didn't have to seat in a puddle for hours. I have taken this and rocked back and forth as hard as I could and wasn't able to flip it over. i have been able to stand on it although it is still difficult to stay up but only because it will take some time to learn how to balance better on it. I have used a trolling motor on the back and it worked well. This has tons of storage space and the inside gets a couple ounces of water inside the hull but not anything significant at all, more like a sweating thing. The seat is awesome, very comfortable. the only drawback with this kayak is that it is not a sleek and fast kayak, but what it dose have makes this easy to overlook. I am very happy with the choice i made.

I think the kayak is great. If you are looking for a great fishing kayak, this is it. It is a good price for what it offers. The storage is amazing. If you like the kayak, do not read the rest of my review. I am pointing out a lot of things but they are small and I am picky. First of all is the hatches leak which I sure you already know by now. Just put a little silicon in there and your fine. Second, it does not have any side handles on it. This makes it difficult for loading and unloading. It also makes it hard to turnover in the water if you capsize. I bought some kayak handles and bolted them on. Third, the very front and very back hatches (the circular ones) are very stiff. They are hard to turn and even harder to pull up. I bought another pair of kayak handles and bolted them onto the hatches. It works great! Fourth, the paddle holder puts the paddle right on top of the rod holders. I had to move my rods around a lot when I was putting the paddle on. Fifth, is not as big but the stand up strap is a little too short. I kept having to lean a ways down to get it. It was very difficult with a PFD on but if you just tie a little bit of rope to it, you will be fine. Last, the chord that holds the seat down is too stretchy. I love the seat but every time I would lean back when setting the hook, I would fall back with the seat. Most of the problems I have said are tiny and fixable but like I said, I'm picky and I want you to know what you are buying. Overall I think it is a great kayak and it is great for fishing. I would recommend it to anyone. The problems are fixable with about and extra 30-50 bucks but I believe it is worth it!

This is one of the most stable kayaks I've fished out of. Make no mistake if you are fishing tight areas and need to be agile this is NOT the kayak for you. This thing turns slow and wide like a massive ship. Standing up and fishing in this is not as easy as expected but overall a good sit on top. The storage is killer and there is tons of room on the deck for depth finders and rod holders.

This purchase was a result of a lot of research, as a busted up Vet, this was my best choice. I
I put rollers in the back of my truck and loading is ez.
The boat goes out at least 2 times each week. There is no problem with water in the hull via the hatches unless they are not sealed properly. The paddle needs to be a bit longer to get the proper depth on each stroke.
This craft has most of the up grades one would want to add for fishing and the room to add a live well and bait tank. It handles well with low winds and mild conditions. It is not for rough water or high wind. I use this boat in open lakes,swamps and gulf coast salt water. I have caught red fish, blue fish, black drum and yellow tail with a few sharks. This is one fun fishing machine and I would recommend it to any one that wants to fish from a kayak.
