The Hobie Mirage Compass is the most affordable of all Hobie’s rotomolded kayaks and is also one of the lightest, which is partly why it’s so popular. 2022+ models feature a new seat design and are available from SLH with MD180 KU or GT KU MirageDrives

Hobie Compass Mirage Fishing Kayak

Hobie Compass Mirage Pedal Powered Fishing Kayak

The Hobie Compass is our best selling fishing kayak, a favourite among our staff and customers alike and easily one of the most popular fishing kayaks in Australia. This model is a great all-rounder, equally capable on inland waterways as it is in our local bays. There’s practically no where you can’t take it and no where fish can hide.

Offering comfort (and featuring a new seat design), light weight, and excellent stability, the Compass is highly efficient and handles itself beautifully in flat water and or choppy conditions. There really is a lot to love about the Hobie Compass. Ask anyone who owns one!

The 2022+ Model Hobie Compass differs from earlier models with a newly designed (lighter weight) seat and the rear rod holders are inserts rather than being molded into the hull.

Given it’s form, size and performance, the Hobie Mirage Compass is a surprisingly light and stable kayak, making it a great all-round fishing platform that has swiftly become our best selling Hobie fishing kayak. It offers the best ‘per-kilogram’ overall performance in the range and is perfectly suited for kayak fishing WesternPort and Port Phillip Bays.

It is highly capable in any inland waterway (rivers, lakes and bays) and some of our more ambitious customers have been known to pedal them off shore in the pursuit of larger prey. Whether you want to slay the squid in close or chase the snapper out a little wider, the Compass will get you there and back with ease.

The Compass offers excellent stability for it’s dimensions, wide enough to offer good flat water stability and a smooth chine shape provides good performance in choppier conditions as well. This multi-tasking hull shape makes it a good fit for our local bays. Featuring an inverted rudder (similar to the Pro Angler series) offers a sharp turning radius, making for high maneuverability.

The refined bow shape (inspired by the Revolution series) affords the ability to reach speeds not normally achieved in kayaks of it’s dimensions. Angling-ready features include molded-in rod holders, H-Track accessory mounts and a Lowrance-Ready transducer cavity for easy and effective fish finder installations. Fitted with a breathable mesh seat at a fixed height, the Hobie Compass offers all-day comfort and an optimal pedal-stroke.
