If budget is not a big issue ... I would recommend looking at the Hobie Kayaks. Lots of cool options for fishing. They even have an option for a live well. Check out their web site.

I don't own one but a freind does. He uses it for fishing and he raves about it. One unique feature of the Hobies is that you can propell them using foot power (no hand paddles). Allows you to troll around and activily use both hands to cast/fish.

You'll have to post pic's of your final choice.

The hobies are nice, but there are a lot of really great boats out there now. Even some canoe/kayak hybrids.

What are you looking to do with your kayak, and where are you planning on fishing?

I really like a SOT when the water gets warmer, but early in the year I do like the protection of the SIK. It'll keep you dry and warm.

Check out the canoe section of the board, there are some good members down there who can help you out.

Hiya -

I have a good friend and hardcore kayak angler that swears by his Native Watercraft brand Kayaks. He has the Manta Ray, which is a sit on top model, and raves about it.
