Well, after much deliberation I decided to purchase my own kayak and chose the Jackson Kayak Cuda. http://jacksonkayak.com/ This craft is amazing! The fine folks at Jackson really listened to kayak fisherman when designing this craft. It has 8 built in rodholders, a huge center hatch, 3 seating positions, rod tip cover and tackle stagers to mention a few. I decided on the Yellow Jacket color scheme and its gorgeous!
