Under 300$ Light, perfect for beginner. Read the reviews. Go to youtube and type in "pelican persuit" and watch the videos. Awesome kayak. You can add a rod holder. A milk crate for tackle box and your ready to go.
Don't get a pelican! I've heard a lot of bad things about those kayaks from being very unstable and poorly made.

Yeah, the price is cheap, but u get what u pay for

Look on craigslist you'll find good deals on some.

I have a Malibu X-Factor and an Ocean Kayak Big Game. They are both big boy kayaks and have a 600 pound capacity so I can load it up it I want/need to.

Good information in here. I've been contemplating getting one myself. I have an 18' center console that I use in the bays in Delaware but would like something to use for the lakes or rivers around here at home. I'd rather go with a kayak than a small aluminum boat.

I'm looking at buying one in the early spring. Torn between a Heritage Redfish 12', a Mad River Synergy 12', and a Wilderness Systems Ride 12'. I live halfway between two large lakes, about 3 miles from a small reservoir, and about 300 yards from a pretty big river and would love to be able to fish them in a yak. I have tested out the redfish and its pretty nice for an entry level yak.

If anyone here is relatively handy, knows how to run a drill and a jigsaw, you can build yourself a kayak. My dad and I have matching 17ft. touring style kayaks built from sheets of plywood (African Mahogany to be exact).

Now, mind you, I am NOT, I REPEAT NOT A WOODWORKER!!

I'll have to find some pics, but they came out very nicely. I have camped out of mine for a week, and could have gone longer if I brought more food. I have also fished out of mine which wasnt hard at all, you just have to have all your tackle in the cockpit or deck bag.

Here is a link to the specific model

http://www.clcboats.com/shop/boats/k...kayak-kit.html

They go like stink in the water. I can outrun an empty 18ft canoe with 2 paddlers while my kayak is fully loaded with about 100+ lbs of gear. These things are amazing!

Smile Yea!

I have 2 Hobie kayaks and YES the're expensive BUT kinda like our TACOS Ive never been disappointed with things that work! And they do work well! As far as shallow water you only peddle with minimum distance on the pedals really often OR take a run at it and if you get stuck get out and walk! The fins underneath will tuck up to the boat if u have either pedal forward. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND RENT, BORROW, WHATEVER YOU NEED TO DO B E F O R E YOU GET ANYTHING! Hope this helps. I put both kayaks on a jet ski trailer Another excellent choice, works suberb

Guys around here fish out of kyaks for sturgeon. You hook into one and let it pull you up and down the river for a while.

I have a 4 door 4x4 2008. I have 2 ocean kayak scramblers. We love em. I put them in the bed and use a bed extender that fits into the hitch. it extens the bed with a long square pipe that comes out then up and has a t on top at the level of the dropped tailgate. Works awsome and no lifting up high. We live near cape cod

Kayak fishing is pretty awesome, I have been doing it since I was 8 or so. This is a great way to get to remote places, and also an amazing secret weapon on lakes overfished by boats with trolling motors or row boats. Also once you get where you want to be as long as your bait has a pond or two of resistance you are your own trolling motor.

The Hobie fin system is supposed to be absolutely awesome and folds up above the bottom of the boat to be out of harms way. Hank Parker did a show with his son in those boats of their local creek where they actually were scraping over rock and stuff with no issues.

Self rescue even in open water is a matter of planning and practice. With a paddle float and a pump you will be able to get back into the boat and bail it out.

As far as landing big fish goes its definitely less of an issue then you think.

I go bass fishing religiously and use a kayak a great deal of the time. As soon as you get used to it you'll love it, and you can bring it anywhere no matter what the restrictions are.

I've only got a basic Pelican Potomac 120 kayak, it holds up well enough and is actually pretty stable. It's still my first one, about to upgrade to either the Old Town Vashon 146 or the Wilderness Systems Pamlico 120.

You can do alot of basic modifications to any kayak though, to make it fishing ready.

I've added many different rod holders, bungees, and etc.
