Malibu Kayaks Stealth 14 Kayak
Top of the line Fishing Kayak
The Malibu Stealth 14 is the best fishing kayak I have ever used, that is why I own 3 of them. Malibu really took the time to design a kayak that can handle it all, from paddling through breaking waves in the surf and offshore, to sight casting on the flats. The stability is unmatched by any other manufacturer, so standing in this boat is super easy. The casting platform gives you a stable, flat platform to stand on when searching for fish, as well as providing a vast amount of storage space and a baitwell. The Stealth 14 cuts through the water making an easy paddle for a boat as wide as it is, and also turns with ease. The gator hatch provides ample access to even more storage space- I can store 4-6 rods, paddle, net, PFD, dry bag, first aid kit, and still have alot of room left inside. If your a serious kayak fisherman, or just getting started and looking to learn, the Malibu Stealth 14 is the boat for you!

This is a very comfortable and stable kayak. All kinds of storage and a childs seat also. Stable enough to stand and paddle while sight fishing. Tracks great and is perfect for large bays or lakes. paddle all day and be comfortable,

Awesome fishing Kayak
I personally own two of these kayaks and have fished on them in all types of conditions, from dead calm to 25mph winds that would have kept most people off the water and my Stealth 14 has yet to let me down. This kayak has everything that a serious kayak angler looks for, a lot of dry storage to store and carry all of your gear you will need for a day on the water, it has a front gator hatch that doubles as a seat for a passenger as-well as two storage compartments in the center and a large storage compartment behind the seat area, all of these storage compartments come with locking handles and rubber seals to keep your gear dry and easily accessible to you when you need it . The Stealth 14 also gives you the ability to stand and fish with its extra wide casting deck this helps if you like to be able to see the fish and cast to them. The stealth also has a built in bait well that can be plumed to keep your bait alive or you can use it as a cooler like i do. This kayak a paddles very easily and tracts well in the water even my 13 year old son has no problem paddling the stealth 14 so as you can see this kayak has everything you need in a fishing kayak

Sturdy and Reliable
This is my first Malibu Stealth 14 and I couldn't be happier. I have been kayak fishing for over 7 years and have owned 4 different brands of kayaks. My Stealth 14 is unsurpassed in stability and storage room. I've felt closed in on other kayaks, they never felt like they had enough room in the lap area and I'm not a big guy at 5'8". The Stealth has more than enough storage room. I really enjoy the wide cockpit area and I use the live well on every trip. I don't even have to use a live well kit, I simply undo the plug in the live well are and the well refreshes itself all day long. I've had a 20"trout live all day in that live well. I also love the pocket bags in the kayak. It makes cleaning the kayak so much easier. I no longer have to worry about spilling Gulp juice in my kayak. I simply take out the pockets and wash them in the sink. I've never had so much storage area before. My favorite feature is teh ability to stand and fish. Sight fishing has opened a whole other dimension to the areas I fish. I have stood up in 30mph winds to take a picture of my fish on a measuring board with no problem. Now, I stand just as much as I sit.
