I've been fishing out of a cheap kayak for 5 or 6 years now. Fell in love with kayak fishing and feel weird if I'm not in a kayak when fishing. So I decided to save enough to get a nice yak and make it that much more enjoyable. Went with the Feelfree Lure 11.5. I took it out real quick yesterday but didn't have time to fish. It's super stable. I had no trouble standing up at all. Even paddled while standing and paddled with the seat all the way up. Today I'm hoping to get out to one of the local lakes and see if I can't get some fish slime on it.
