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?

The smallest in the Ocean Kayak Trident line, this kayak really packs a punch. At 11′ this kayak blends stability with considerable weight capacity which most kayaks at this length can’t claim. The Trident 11 is perfect for anglers who are looking for maneuverability over covering long distances in their quest for finding a honey hole. The Trident 11 features a bow hatch, large tank well and roomy cockpit. The adjustable foot braces fit most leg lengths and allow you to ride with ease – a great choice for inland waters, slow moving rivers and moderate ocean swells.

The smallest in Ocean Kayak’s Trident line, the Prowler Trident 11 angler sit-on-top kayak boldly goes where bigger boats can’t. At 11 feet 5 inches long, the Prowler Trident 11 blends stability with a considerable weight capacity of 350 to 400 pounds, a far bigger load limit than most comparably sized kayaks.
The Prowler Trident 11 angler offers plenty of space for you and your fishing gear.
As a result, the kayak is ideal for anglers who want to cover long distances in their quest to find a honey hole. In addition, the kayak is extremely maneuverable, making it easy to saunter through kelp beds, reefs, shallows, and hard-to-access lakes and streams–in short, all the places where the fish don’t expect a silent, stealthy guest to paddle close. And as with the best kayaks, the Prowler Trident 11 offers plenty of space for you and your gear thanks to a large bow hatch with an easy-to-open Cross Lock buckle, an oversized tank well with a bungee, and a roomy cockpit. Add in an adjustable foot brace–which fits most leg lengths and allows you to ride with ease–and you can easily handle inland waters, slow moving rivers, and moderate ocean swells.
To keep you comfortable during your fishing trip, Ocean Kayak also included a Comfort Plus seat back, which offers ample foam padding, a UV-resistant nylon fabric, and four-way adjustability. Finally, no angler kayak is complete without a few fisherman-specific items, and the Prowler Trident 11 complies, with two flush-mounted rod holders, a small tackle box, and a unique Rod Pod hatch that provides easy access to your fishing rods while you’re seated. Other details include a transducer-compatible scupper, a battery storage bag in the bow hatch, a molded-in cup holder, and reflective deck rigging. The Prowler Trident 11, which is compatible with Ocean Kayak’s rudder system (sold separately), comes in yellow and sand colors.
