Hobie® Mirage® Sport excels for inshore fishing

The new Hobie® Mirage® Sport is said to be an easy-to-use watercraft that excels for fishing inshore or on smaller bodies of water. The Oceanside, California, manufacturer says: “Anglers will quickly realise the advantage of Hobie’s iconic and efficient MirageDrive® pedal propulsion system which keeps hands virtually free for casting, fighting and landing a fish. Two moulded-in rod holders can also accommodate a gaff, nets and other gear.” The installation of electronics is frustration free thanks to the Lowrance® Ready System and the lightweight hull allows for quick acceleration and a tight turning radius for close quarters fishing around docks and tree stumps. Its movable seat is a none-size fits most so it can be shared with family and friends of various heights and widths. The crafted hull shape prevents fish-disturbing water slap and an optional live well, crate or cooler can easily fit in the aft cargo area. There is never a need to go thirsty with two built-in drink holders. When the fish are not biting, sailors will enjoy the diversity offered by the optional sail kit.
