Default Re: Looking for a kayak

Check craigslist for used stuff. Lots of good items out there.
In the Florida keys we rented a 'SUP' (stand up paddle board), and a two person 'sit-on-top' kayak. In higher winds, the kayak did better, and if you have a partner, one person can aim to good spots while the other casts. The SUP was super fun to cast from, and you will see a lot more fish when standing up. The SUP had nothing to catch line on, which kept things simple. Watch out for crocs and gators!

We ended up getting a little 8 foot sit-on-top kayak for here in Colorado. It is quick to get around in and doesn't get stuck in the wind like a pontoon
or a belly boat. We got a 'Lifetime Calypso' for under $200. Simple and sturdy, and it won't sink if capsized (which does happen, ask me how I know!)
