Very nice! Now one question. Do you think the $130 Kayak will suit your needs? I am wanting to buy some for the family when Dunhams have them on sale again.
Although this was my first trip, I really was impressed at this kayak as a fishing machine.
It had plenty of storage. the rod holders that came with the Future Beach unit were excellent and the fact that it weighs only 45 pounds but yet holds 300 pounds on the water really impressed me. This kayak really cruises through the water while paddling which is what else I was impressed by.
A few things I would like to add to the kayak to make this the ultimate fishing vessel would as follows.
1) A more comfortable seat. The seat isn't bad but after about 3 hours I needed a bit more butt padding and a higher back rest.
2) A good fish finder. I've been looking into them. While paddling around, it would be nice to know the depth and structure underneath you.
3) Electric Trolling Motor. I was surprised how fast the kayak cruised across the lake just by paddling. This unit would work fantastic as a trolling machine with a trolling motor and a down rigger.
