Paddling.net has reviews on pretty much every kayak. The closest thing to a perfect fishing kayak is the Hobie Outback.

Dont know anything about that kayak but I do know there is no perfect kayak. Find one that has a good reputation for doing the kind of fishing you are going to be doing and go for it.

Don't sweat too much about your first kayak. Every yak will have its +'s and -'s. Also, what is perfect now will be insufficient later as you get more experience, fishing locations/conditions change, and you want to do different things. It's safe to say that most guys will go through a few yaks during their kayak fishing "career". I've bought 3 yaks over the years (sold one) and I have my eyes on 2 more yaks. One for long distance paddling/speed and another for tooling around the surf zone.

So, go by the opinions of others who fish the same style as you want and pull the trigger and get in on the action. Good luck and enjoy.

....and there you have the rest of the story.

Congrats on your new boat.

I purchased a Ocean Kayak Prowler Trident 13, and love it. Minnesota land of 10,000 lakes.
