I am 6’3″ and 235. What Kayak should I get?

My friends will get the cheapest kayak some where like Dick’s Sporting goods. ($200-$300). I am willing to spend a bit more (around $500). We will mostly be on lakes (Fishing) and a float trip every once in a while (slow Missouri rivers).

I want to be comfortable and safe. I want to keep up with my friends who are all under 200lbs, so hopefully it handles well. I sat in one at Bass Pro that seemed nice. It is the Ascend FS10.

Any opinion would be appreciated. I am new to this.
You guys have got me thinking. What Canoe would you recommend. We like to each have our own boat, so what Canoe will be easy for one person to handle, but can hold two if needed from time to time.

I am still leaning towards a Kayak though. Does anyone have an opinion on the model I mentioned?

Thank you to all.

Good inflatable kayak for ocean and fresh water fishing?

I’m looking for a good inflatable kayak that I can use in both the ocean and lakes/rivers in semi-harsh conditions when needed. I’m 6’4 220 so it needs to be big and have storage for fishing and camping gear. Looking to spend around $500, but don’t hesitate to recommend something more expensive, I want to look at all my options. So far this is what I’ve found that looks pretty good to me and is probably what I will get unless someone can recommend something better, http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Elements-Frame-Expedition-Inflatable/dp/B000O3AVNY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1290104730&sr=1-1
