Fishing out of a kayak?

Does anyone have a Kayak they fish out of?
I was thinking about getting one but have no idea what to look for.
I'll be doing mostly flats fishing in no more than 6 feet of water. Typically I'll be in 2 feet of less.
Does anyone have suggestions on what I should get?
Or better yet pics of theirs loaded in their Tacoma?

Wilderness Systems & Mad River sell fishing sell fishing model kayaks.
I have Wilderness Pungo 120 which they also market a fish model in. It has plenty of room to move around, a very comfortable phase III seating system, is flatter so its stable yet tracks well & takes a beating. I've gone remote camping in it with my friend Kurt who fished in his. I take the pictures.

Pic of it on my tacoma. Mine cost around $550 a couple a years ago with hiking club discount.

I've got a 14' Liquid Logic Pisgah that I use to get to fishing spots, but most people I know that actually fish from their kayak have sit-on-top models. They're more stable and most hang their legs over the sides (straddling the boat, essentially) for added stability when casting and reeling stuff in.

Not sure what you'll be after but I obviously wouldn't recommend the above technique with toothy fish.

Hobie and Ocean Kayak are pretty popular amongst fishermen around here.

My buddy swears by his hobie fishing kayak. His has the hobie mirage drive (peddle system).

Me and my dad fish out of a wilderness system in rivers a lot. It gets kinda tight sometimes but it gets the job done.

I was wondering about those. That'd be sweet to get me where I want to go faster. They have a tug of war video on their page, 1 guy pedaling vs two guys paddling and the 1 guy wins.
The only problem is that I like to fish in shallow water and the fins might get in the way, I see they fold up though. I wonder if it has a button or lever you can push to bring them all the way up.

Anyone recommend a cheaper one to start with?
Longhorn, Do you have any dedicated local kayak/canoe outfitters? Those places will sell blemished /factory 2nds, demos, or last year models even less expensive than new. Some even carry consignments and offer events where you can go try them out before buying.

Perception makes a pretty decent inexpensive 10' model as does Wilderness with a Pungo 100. If I was gonna buy a spare that is what I'd get.
By far, kayaking is my favorite outdoor activity come nicer weather here. VT/NH/Maine ponds/lakes offer plenty of opportunity. I'd imagine the same holds true in Minnesota.

I really don't know, but I know who I could ask... I guess that's the next best thing!

And yes, the same holds true for Minnesota!

I was out at the bar earlier and saw my brother's fiance's uncle who is a Captain on a boat that does fishing charters in Costa Rica. He said the newest thing they're doing down there is hauling kayaks off shore and letting people hook up with sailfish in them.. Pretty cool to be able to say you landed a 6 foot billfish from a kayak.

Look into piroughs. Thats what we use. You have a fair amount of room for anchor, food, cooler, stringer etc...

I don't know about a kayak but I've used my canoe on the flats many a time. A buddy and I take it along in his boat to the railroad bridge on the Banana River on the East Coast and take the canoe from there up into the no motor zone after big reds. We put it in my boat and use the canoe in the no motor zone in Cockroach Bay and behind Windom Island in Tampa Bay on the West Coast.

Me and a buddy decided to look for sand dollars. We hit a sand bar with LOTS of sand dollars. We capsized, open water with a family of jellyfish below our feet. We had to swim back 75 yards or so. pulling our kayak.

Not fun

I've got a Future Beach Trophy 126. It's got a dihedral hull, kind of like the opposite of a tri-hull found on boats. I'm not sure how good the brand is, but the kayak is really stable compared to a V or U shaped kayak hull. Mine's a sit-in that I just use in rivers and lakes. They make some sit on top models too, which would be better for salt water fishing. It's my first kayak and so far I've been happy with it, except that the seat can be kind of uncomfortable. Got it at a Dick's last fall on sale for around $400.
