Stand n fish

I enjoy the kayak because I can comfortably fish in many positions and thus stay on the water longer without being aggravated and wanting to stretch my legs. As should be noted this kayak is for the bays and back waters, not open ocean, waves, or anywhere with too strong of a current. Had it for a year now and haven't had any leaks, breaks etc yet. I installed a couple of the add-ons like the skid plate, deck plate (for more standing room) and skeg. I think the skeg and skid plate are most essential to make the kayaks easier to move in the water and to protect it from the oysters below. My only complaint of the kayak is it is pretty expensive, and each accessory is no less than 125$. So between the three plus the Larry chair I got for it, prepare to drop some serious cash. I've owned three kayaks though and while its not the most versatile it certainly functions in its niche very well.
