The picture with you in the blue kayak and the sonar looks like the kayak I have.? What type of kayak is it ?
I have a blue Old Town Derigo. What would you reccomend?
I put rod holders on mine because I was too cheap to buy one with rod holders built in.
Hope to get a second one soon? I need it to be good for fishing and playing. Thanks,
Willysol

Thats my old kayak. Its a mainstream Kingfish. For what i paid ($300) it was a good kayak but there are plenty of better ones out there. Currently Im fishing out of a Hobie Pro Angler, it is a fishing machine. As far as fishing kayaks go, I would stick with a sit on top. Youll be much happier.

The sit on top kayaks look less stable because the center of gravity is higher?? The Angler by Old Town I saw at Cabela's last year look stable and are decked out with rod holders. ??
I'm too chicken to go out on the big lake, but in bays and lakes up north or in ponds would seem ok.
I understand that people use them in the Florida Keys for shallow water casting.

Sit on tops are just as stable if not more stable than sit ins. I can stand and cast in mine just as if i was in a boat.

No offense but i do not know why people think that SOT's are unstable. Every one I know, in person or via net, that buys a sit in wishes they got on SOT once they've tried it. Big lake or no big lake.
