Sea Eagle FS126 Inflatable Fishing Boat Reviews
6 Discount Packages available. starting at $899
Hi Guys - I had a problem with a broken paddle upon first use. I did send an email to support but never received a response. I know this was all during the initial surge of Covid disruptions; but hopefully we can get this corrected now that things have settled down. I really love the boat; can someone please contact about sending a new stand-up paddle please?

It’s amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better small craft for fishing the rivers around my area
Happy happy happy! Successful launch today. The build quality on this 126 is solid. I used an electric pump to inflate and deflate and it’s very quick. I’m using a 36lb electric motor built for a kayak and the motor pushed it around the lake with no problem. Very nimble/maneuverable. I’m 6’2/215 and standing/sitting/turning around on the SUP was stable with a little lateral movement. The chair is a little low and maybe a couple inches higher would be better. Being able to swivel in the chair is easy and a great feature. It was absolutely great to be able to standup and stretch and move around to cast. Way better than sitting for hours fishing. The stand-up paddle works great. I washed the board and deflated it flat as a pancake. Rolled it up with no problems and bagged it with the backpack in the kit. Looking forward to fishing again soon. I’ve never paddle boarded before, but I think you get bang for your buck with this setup and I would definitely give it consideration.
Super happy with quality , stability , fishability and set up flexibility of the FS126. Purchased in late August and have put in 18 days on various lakes and rivers up to class 2. So let’s get right to the one negative, the 2 rod holder storage box does not hold its shape well nor is it trustworthy to hold your fishing rods as is. Guessing it will take an hour or two to make and fit some pieces to stiffen it where it will be trustworthy to hold fishing rods. As is, it is ok for holding anchor, line, skegs, shoes ect.
My wife and I have used our two FS126 on a few occasions. We are impressed with the quality of the boats. They are very sturdy and stable and let you go where other boats can't. The trolling motor works great. They are easy to store and inflate with the electric pump. The hand pump, even though large and of good quality, is a workout. Living in Florida, we had to register the boats and place numbers on the side. I purchased them from a company that I believe is on your website and glued them on myself. So far so good.show full review ▼
I was very pleased with the SUP that I received. I do wish it had been about 18'' shorter. A water craft in my state 16' or longer has to be registered so I had to come up with a way to put the registration numbers on the side of the SUP. I used stencils and painted the numbers on. Don't know how long they will last but we will see. The issue I have is that the SUP is not as stable as the videos make it look. On my first time to use it my wife and I capsized shortly into the trip. I am looking into putting pontoons on to stabilize the SUP and make it work better for my needs. I believe if I can accomplish the addition of the pontoons I will have a very good fishing craft.
Thank you for the review Ron.
The FS126 is 12'6" so it clears any 16' requirements. For any assistance on the use of your FishSup please feel free to reach out to us anytime.
To be honest, I haven't used the boat as much as I'd like. I took it on a trip to South Carolina, bumped in to a pier and put small slices into the surface of the rubber. It did not seem to cause a leak but I was surprised and how sharp the barnacles were and easily the scratch the surface layer. I'm hesitant to take into saltwater again. The rubber seems a little soft and you have to be too careful, That aside, I used it in South Carolina and again locally on pond. It's very stable. I found fishing from it very easy. A couple complaints... First...it's heavy. The guy with it on his back all neatly packed up must be a weight lifter because I can barely get the whole thing off the ground. I also found the transom a little difficult to figure out and still haven't put the motor on because it looks unstable. The seat takes a bit long to set up. That whole looping strap thing is a pain. You need to figure out how to make that easier. Lastly it's not quite Fly Fishing Friendly.show full review ▼
Only used twice so far, it's as awesome as I had hoped, a sport paddle board camper. My review is very good, but with a gaping caveat : Only 1 fill chamber. Design must strive now to re configure a fail safe something: (like X's baffling inside primary chamber + (would add stability) The craft is a sporty enough platform to endanger a wayward adventurer into a puddle with but one valve. OK SeaEagles, I wanna help you make this FS126 Great with Best Practice's for Marine applications. USA
