i intend purchasing a sea kayak and would like some advice please.?

I will be using it for fishing, touring/camping trips and also to go snorkelling from. I am undecided but do like the look of the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 and the Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 Angler. I am leaning towards the Prowler. Any suggestions please?

    Take them for a test paddle if possible. When buying a kayak it is important that you get a good fit with the boat you are buying. For the uses you mention, it sounds like a sit-on-top will be your best choice, but it still has to fit your body. Find a shop that will allow you to test the boat. Considering the size of investment in equipment, this shouldn’t be a problem with reputable shops. (After my home and truck, my kayak is the 3rd most expensive thing I own)
