Never owned a kayak and don't own a boat, I want to hit the small lakes,ponds and some rivers this year. I've been researching a little bit and it seems Certain kayaks are best for rapids and others for fishing. I was looking through basspro.com and saw the otter series, I was almost ready to drive down and pick up the xt when I realized the reviewers that were 6' tall said it was tight and not a ton of cargo room.I'm 6'0 by the way. Any kayak veterans know of some good fishing kayaks under or around 500$? I'll take all the info I can get. Thanks, would also like to prop it up in the back of a pick up truck so no 20 footers please.
