I've wanted a fishing kayak for a couple years now. I will be fishing mostly crappie and smallmouth in medium to large lakes, and perhaps doing some river trips on smallish rivers in southern MO. I don't really need something stable enough to stand in and I want to be able to cruise at a decent speed in order to set jug lines, etc.
Anyone want to talk me out of the Ocean Kayak 13? Is there a better fishing kayak out there for $1000? Any experience with the Ocean Kayak or others like it?
Any input is welcome. Thanks!
