I am looking for a kayak that will do well in some slow moving rivers, and very mild rapids . I want it to be a sit in kayak, and be able to have a spay skirt put on it. I want it to have lots of dry storage and fishing rod mounts( one or 2 is fine, dont need a bunch). I am looking for just specific models and companies of kayaks. The one ive seen is called The future beach Trophy 126. Ive heard good things about it. Is this a good company? Also is Advanced elements a good paddle company. I do want a good paddle, not over 100 dollars ( dont want to be up a creek without a paddle!) also i would like to put my cap off limit on the kayak at around 450 ( this can flex a bit). I know these are some very specific limitations, but i wana make shure im making the right choice, thanks!
Hobie Kayaks are pretty close to what I’m looking for. They are however, ridiculously expensive. Do you know of any other companies that sell something similar?
(it will be used for fishing)
I am looking for a new kayak for fishing in fresh & salt water. I have it between 2 models; the Wilderness systems Tarpon 120 angler and the Ocean Prowler 13 angler. Any advice??? I can’t seem to make the decision. Really would like to hear what you don’t like about each of these as well as that may be the determining factor. I will be buying the new 2010 model either way..
If you think I should consider a different kayak brand I am open to suggestions but have looked at a lot of different ones before getting to these 2.
