Advice on kayaks

I have been looking for a new kayak and I'm not really sure what to be looking for. I know I need space for gear and coolers but what other features should I be looking for?

Re: Advice on kayaks

Any idea where the local kayak divers / fishermen launch? Go hang out there and ask some questions (when they are returning, not rushing to get out!).

Most are happy to show you their rigs. Explain what they like and what they don't; show off any modifications they've made. I've learned a great deal in parking lots. If you play your cards right, you may very well find some new fishing / diving partners.

Once you have some idea what you want, try to find a used kayak.

Re: Advice on kayaks

U r looking for a used Ocean Kayak Scupper Pro. Yellow is the best color.
Double hatch is the best IMO.
"Scupper Pro gives u wings"
