What's your reviews on a good kayaks fishing and outdoors use
I wouldn't characterize it as good, but I got on of the Wally world 10' sundolphin journey ss fishing yaks for father's day and I've been using the crap out of it. It feels tippy at first but you really have to lean way over to get it to tip.
Check out the Native Ultimate. Not cheap but well made and available with many options.
I have the Native Slayer 12 pro and love it.
Sit in, or sit on top?
For a sit in, I recommend an Old Town Vapor fishing edition 10ft. For a SOT, I recommend a Perception Pescador 12ft. Neither will break your bank and both are easily customize-able.
Vibe also makes some nice fishing kayaks.
Highly recommend Jackson Kayaks. Several places in the state carries them. Canoe Ky and KY Lake Outdoors ( I believe that's the place)
I have a Vibe SeaGhost 130 and am pleased with it. Have used it in the gulf, on lakes, and in creeks. If you don't have something like a mirage drive with foot pedals, you will most likely want something that paddles easily. The SeaGhost moves through the water easily enough to troll while paddling and I have stood up in mine, but it takes some practice getting used to its stability. I think they call it secondary stability or something like that. I have stood in it and ridden over boat wakes, but it was at a time when I didn't really care if I got dumped or not. I probably would have spilled out of it if I had been trying really hard to stay in it.
I made a choice of the Vibe SeaGhost over the FeelFree Lure Kayak. The FeelFree was more stable and wider, but it was slower cutting through the water. Each one has its advantages and I wouldn't mind having one of each.
Kayaks can also be very handy for accessing some public hunting lands during turkey and deer season that you might not be able to walk to.
I'm getting lazy now and mostly, only fish out of a boat. But, I do like my kayak very much and don't regret buying it.
Oh, and my Son has a Perception Pescador and he has sure caught some monsters out of it. Especially in the gulf.
I bought a Old Town Predator PDL back in April. It’s an upper end pedal kayak and it’s pretty amazing. I’ve been fishing on Barkley Lake and it handles great. With the pedal drive you can stay on spot so much easier and have your hands free to fish. I just bought a jet ski trailer today to convert to a kayak trailer since it’s rather big and heavy. If you fish calm ponds any model will work fine but if it’s windy or current I cannot stress enough how much easier a pedal yak is to fish from.
