I'm looking for a fishing kayak 12 to 13 ft long with as high of a weight capacity and stable as possible. Ideally it will be easily converted to peddle propulsion later because it will probably have to be paddle at the moment to remain in my budget. The two main kayaks I have been looking at are the Ocean Kayak Prowler Big Game 2 and the Old Town Sportsman 120. My budget for the kayak is currently $1,500.
If you can save a bit more, I really like the Old Town Kayaks for the instant reverse. I have the Predator PDL which is now called the Sportsman Bigwater PDL, and an Ocean Kayak Malibu PDL, which was recently redesigned by Johnson Outdoors(the parent company of both Old Town and Ocean Kayak) and is now called the Old Town Sportsman Salty. I love both kayaks. The PDL drives are fast and durable.
Fishing beautiful Destin / Ft Walton Beach area!
