I would like to get a kayak for fishing the falls of the James River. Mostly around pony pasture. I want to fish for smallmouth and flatheads. I also may do some trips to lynhaven and rudee for flounder and trout. Any suggestions on what I should look for in a kayak. It seems like most of you guys use the sit on top model, but most the people i see on the river mostly use sit in. Most of what I have read says to ge tthe SOT, which is what i would prefer anyway. So what should I expect to spend for a starter yak. Should I go used? Any help you guys can give would help alot. Thanks.

Scott, I just bought a Tarpon SOT from Appomatox in Midlothian. Go there and talk to them. They were very helpful and helped me pick out the right kayak for my needs.

Big Cat,

Lots of good information here http://kfs.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/frm/f/1211085601 on choosing a fishing kayak. In fact, that is the title of the board this link takes you to. Good luck.

I don't think that the older Ride, previous to the newly designed 07, gets very good reviews. do a google search or check out kayakfishingstuff.com for more info. they have brand-specific forums.

Then again, 300 is a good price for a first kayak, I would think.
