I know there's another thread about fishing kayaks but it's five years old. Does anyone have recommendations for the best fishing kayaks?

What's your budget ?

What type of water will you be paddling on?

Transport / storage / weight limitations?

Body type/handicaps that you might like us to work around?

Budget...good question....right now very little.
mostly fresh and brackish water; slow moving.
I'm going to have to come up with a way to transport just about anything. i'm thinking maybe my transportation will be dependent on the kayak.

"Best" kayaks are a matter of preference, but most of the time , your "budget" will determine what you get.
The Hobie and Jackson brands are some of the better ones out there. Wilderness Systems and Native are also good.
Field and Stream and Ascend (Bass Pro Shops) makes a nice "entry level" fishing kayaks.
Look for something in the 12' range. They paddle nice, not too big for most any kind of water and they track good, generally.
Take a good look at the different styles of seats that each brand has to offer. Comfort is #1 when spending long hours out fishing.
If you can, try and find a local dealer where you can test ride different kayaks, before you purchase.
Hope this helps some. Good Luck with your choice.
