Sit in Kayak vs. Sit on Top kayak?

Looking for a Kayak but am not sure which model to go with.

New to Kayaking and looking for a tandem kayak to be used on lakes / rivers and possible inter coastal, recreational use and fishing
Not sure which way to go. Solo won’t work. Need either a Tandem Kayak or go with Canoe (not a huge fan of canoes)

Need multipurpose for the family but preferably fishing when possible. Can go with recreational model but outfit it if possible – not just add a rod holder. Want it to still look cool.

Will use on lakes – small river and possible inter coastal in South Carolina.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Budget conscious so please no .. Hobie responses. I would love to get one if I could. I can’t.

Has anyone hear of Crescent Kayaks? If so, am looking for real reviews.
Thank you

Where to go RV camping in Arkansas?

Will be traveling in RV & would prefer a full hook up camp site. I am interested in seeing some of the beautiful waterfalls and would like to do some river tubing (or rafting – not so much into canoes or kayaks), fishing, hiking and sight seeing while we are there. Any suggestions for places I should go or see? I have never been to Arkansas and am not familiar with the area, so any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Product Description
Feel secure and stable in your kayak, or canoe while fishing with the Scotty #302 Kayak Stabilizer System. The inner bladders are easy to inflate and offer over 30 pounds of extra buoyancy. Scotty’s new Locking Brackets make installation and removal quick and easy! Remove, or reposition, the pontoons with the push of a button. This Stabilizer System can easily be adapted to fit on most canoes without drilling holes by using the Scotty #449 Portable Clamp Mount. Each pontoon includes a Scotty locking mounting system for easy installation and removal. Simply unlock and swing the system inboard to move them out of the way. The Stabilizer Kit includes two inflatable pontoons, two 28″ anodized arms with post, four #241L Locking Combination Side/Deck Mounts, and two #280 Baitcaster Rod Holders. Each 28″ anodized aluminum support arm includes a gear and post system at either end that allows you to make subtle adjustments to properly fit your stabilizer system to virtually any watercraft. The 30 inch long, 8″ diameter (zipper opening) pontoons are manufactured from heavy-duty puncture and tear resistant PVC outer shell material. The #280 Baitcaster Rod Holders, included, hold a baitcaster reels in a cushioned cradle. A slot in the front of the rod holders allow for a spinning reel to be securely held in position. The rod holders’ design has a side mounted flange, which leaves the bottom open. This allows the rod holders to accommodate trigger grips. Pistol grip rod butts easily clear the sides of the rod holders for quick rod retrieval. Rods can be secured in the holders with soft latching straps which snap over the top.
