New guy checking in

Hey guys, used to be a member here years ago. I'm a tournament Bass guy and that's where I spend most my time but wanted to do some flats fishing. Used to saltwater fish 8-9 years ago and just getting back to it a little bit now and really having a great time! Started looking at kayaks but didn't want to spend a lot of money. Ended up getting a Field & Stream last week on a HUGE discount at ****'s Sporting Goods ($329) in Davenport (East of Lakeland). My father and I both got one. I've read plenty of good reviews and several bad but for the price I couldn't pass it up. We're looking forward to getting out some. Anyhow, I love reading all these kayak threads and just wanted to introduce myself. :USA
