New to kayaking. Im looking for a tandem kayak that is affordable, I will be using it for mostly fishing. I am just having trouble finding a used and/or affordable one. I cant see myself spending over $700 on basically a hull… I have looked at the pelican elite but i havent seen any reviews on the elite series and its not really made for fishing. I also am not that worried about tracking I paddled 7 miles on a $100 inflatable and Im sure anything is better than an inflatable,not to mention hook resistant. And what is better sit on top or sit in? Thanks…..

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.
Sit on top tandem kayak? What’s it good for?
I’m looking at buying an inexpensive sit on top tandem kayak.
I’ve been around boats a bit — crewed on tall ships and motor vessels, and have done a bit of whitewater rafting and am swiftwater rescue certified at the tech level.
Given all that, if it’s a very basic sit on top (and I have zero experience with them), what’s the learning curve? Is it pretty safe for my (life vest wearing) 6 year old on ponds and lakes? How do they respond to currents? Is it a craft I could — after getting used to it — take out in reasonably calm ocean water? On rivers?
If my dad visits and wants to use it for trout fishing on the lake, will it work for him?
Thanks in advance!! 😀
