THE CATCH 130 HYDRYVE II

THE CATCH 130 HYDRYVE II by Pelican brings pedal drive technology within reach on this 12’6” rudder controlled fishing kayak. Made with our proprietary RAM-X™ Premium, a multi-layer polyethylene with an advanced resin in the top layer imparting a glossy finish and providing significantly more rigidity than standard polyethylene, THE CATCH 130HDII remains light, stiff, strong, and easy to move. At only 78lbs, you won’t need any help to transport this kayak to your favorite fishing spot.
The HYDRYVE pedal system makes maneuvering in shallow water or around aquatic plants, an absolute breeze and by using the power of your legs, you’ll be able to go for long distances without getting tired. We have taken a modular approach to our design. This way if anything goes wrong, repairing the drive is easy. To prevent damage to the actual kayak, we have specially designed an independent housing in which the HyDryve sits. This ensures if too much torque is applied to the pedal drive, the kayak remains undamaged and the housing is easily replaced. It is important to note that the pedal housing is NOT a watertight structure as the "scupper hole" in which it resides is watertight. The gap between the top and bottom halves is completely normal and specifically designed in that manner to ensure easy cleaning and rinsing as well as quick drying. The pedal housing acts as a buffer between the pedal drive and the watertight hull.
The HyDryve II comes with a One-year limited warranty and features adjustable pedals as well as adjustable foot straps to ensure a comfortable position. In addition, our footrests are double-sided and optimized for either barefoot use or use with boots and shoes. And, while you have to reverse the HYDRYVE in order to go backwards, we have made sure that insertion and removal of the pedal drive is simple and quick.
THE CATCH 130HDII provides the same quality and durability you have come to expect from THE CATCH family. We have packed this kayak with the convenient features you love like multiple flush mount rod holders, several rigging tracks, bottle and tackle box holders, accessory eyelet, anti-slip carpet, an 8” day hatch with storage bag, a convenient angler ruler, and two tank wells for easy storage.
Our famous tunnel hull still provides a high level of stability to ensure an easy and relaxing sight fishing experience. We’ve also included our most recent and most comfortable ERGOCAST G2 seating system. A pocket on the backrest allows you to insert extra lumbar support with straps that adjust the level of support. Straps under the seat adjust to provide as firm or as soft a seat as you prefer. An elastic pocket and strap conveniently located on the seat allows you to keep your pliers, cutters and clippers close at hand. And, there is a large pocket on the back of the seat to provide even more space to store your gear. When you're ready to stand, simply flip the seat backwards to give yourself even more deck space to stand on.
Our unique manufacturing process allows us to include additional flotation inside the hull of all of our sit-on-tops in order to meet or surpass ABYC Standards. This overall process keeps our kayaks lighter than the competition while making them even more solid and buoyant. Made with our patented RAM-X™ PREMIUM material, an exceptionally durable high molecular weight polyethylene that contains a top layer of advanced resin, which provides more rigidity while still being conveniently lightweight, THE CATCH 130 HyDryve will provide years of fishing adventure. The wait is over, it’s time to create stories in your own pedal drive, fishing kayak. THE CATCH 130 HYDRYVE II, making the dream a reality!

Reviews & Questions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for every purpose I just purchased this at the selkirk mb location. I decided to dish out the money as I went through shoulder surgery 3 weeks ago. Absolutely love it and the drive is really smooth. My only complaint would be is the amount of scratches on the bottom. I know it's big and bulky and it was the last one on display. And over time I will probably add more scratches. Maybe I'm just really OCD and I take care of my stuff. So when purchasing cause of the size and awkwardness of it. Store employees and shipping campers could take better care of the product till the customer purchases it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple fixes Perfect for my purpose / Good price / Comfortable / Stable / Transport is a challenge. 1/ Peddle deck deformed in storage prior to sale - could have been avoided by supplying a shape retaining insert for storage. 2/ steering cable guide at the side steering station broke during set up - Could have used metal vs plastic as steering has similar stress to bicycle brake cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and stable Great kayak. I've used it heavily since the ice was off the lakes, 3-5 times a week. Had some issues but customer service sent replacement parts immediately. No issues since the parts have been replaced. It's easy to bash a new product that has some small issues but I can say I love my catch 130 and would only trade it for a Hobie costing twice as much. (I paid $1500, for $1200 this is a steal)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kayak! Great kayak for the price. I always thought a hobie was the only option for a solid pedal drive kayak, but personally I think that Pelican has designed a way more stable and simple kayak that comes ready to fish. The best feature from this kayak is its stability and hull design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pelican has The Best Customer Service! I had to replace the steering cables on an older model Catch 130H Hydrive. Customer Service at Pelican sent me new cables at no charge, the cables and fasteners were improved, easy to install and work great. They sent out the cables immediately and sent me tracking numbers by email. These people are the real deal and stand behind their products!!

watching the video , I'm not sure if I understand this correctly - if you want to go in reverse you have to pull out and reverse the pedal drive - is this correct? What happens if you just pedal backwards? thx

Asked by: Chuck
You cannot pedal backwards, the pedals don't go that far back. You do need to remove the drive system and turn it around

I have the Catch 130 and have problems with the drive squeaking. Is there anything I can do to remedy this?

Asked by: Lisa
For the squeaking, we recommend a Silicone Dry film lubricant. We specifically tested the one from Dow Corning, MOLYKOTE 557.

Which would be best for open sea and rough surf? will be in gulf by Corpus Christi TX

Asked by: Sheck
The Catch 130 Hydrive (or HDII) are recommended for slow moving waters and light waves. We test our models on lakes and slow moving streams and rivers. Not open ocean. We make recreational kayaks and do not recommend any of our models for rough surf.

Can we receive a notice when the catch 130 hd11's are available at a dealer in North Carolina this year (2020)? I've contacted every dealer you suggested and get told they've been discontinued, or they have no idea if they are going to get any in. I want.

Asked by: Gary
The Catch 130 II is not discontinued, dealers were told they could purchase as of February of this year. It should be available in stores this spring.

Does this drive have reverse?

Asked by: Craig12
You will need to remove the drive system and turn it around at 180 degrees so that you are able to pedal backwards.

Hi, I fish very shallow creeks often. Like most creeks there are deep sections and very shallow rapid sections. I am concerned with the shallow rocky rapids with the hydrive fins on the bottom. Seems like I would rip them right off???

Asked by: JMac
Our kayaks are not meant to be used in rapids, calm waters only. By pushing one of the pedals forward and the other backwards towards you this will make the fins horizontal to the bottom hull so that you do not hit any rocks. However during this time, obviously, you cannot pedal the kayak you will need to paddle. They are made pretty strong however as mentioned, our products are not meant to be used in rapids. Calm waters only.
