Best ocean fishing kayak under 10′?

I’m not new to kayaking or the ocean but i am new to the idea of fishing from a kayak. i cant decided if a sit on top or a sit in style kayak is better for ocean fishing but i’ve found these so far, but i am open to suggestions on others.

    Most people in my area who do kayak fishing go with sit-on-tops, so given the choice of those 3, I’d go with the Mysto. For one, having a SOT will give you much better access to your gear. Also, the other two boats you list look more like they’re designed for calm water. If you find yourself in surf or even just some wind chop, those boats will flood pretty quickly. A sprayskirt might help if you can get one, but then you’ll have a harder time getting to your stuff.

    Also, a lot of people go with longer boats on the ocean (the Prowler series seems popular). If 10′ is the longest you can go, it’ll work, but you won’t be able to go as fast or far and you might have a harder time in the wind.
