Yep, all kayaks are good for being towed around - much better than having to motor up or down on fish as you have to do with powered craft.

Incidentally, in my experience kayaks that don't have big propulsion fins sitting under the hull all the time are better at slipping through the water under tow from fish.

Love watching the kayak pick up speed as the fish tows it. Wouldn't you be better to lift the fins when you get a fish running like that?
