Very stable and can hold a heavy guy with ease!

Just started kayak fishing and this is my first kayak. I have to say I am impressed. I had an Old Time 17' canoe that was a pain in the @#$ to haul around and I never felt very stable in it. Not a fun thing. So when I got this Kayak I was a little concerned but all the reviews said it was very stable and they were right! I am 5'6" and a good 260# and this kayak didn't even blink when I got in. I had plenty of water clearance and felt extremely stable. Beat the canoe hands down. Short and easy to get into. I was able to put a fair amount of tackle on it with me. It is a bit slow in Kayak terms but once I got the hang of it I was able to move along a a good pace for me. Have to get used to the wind wanting to turn me around easy but I can use an anchor next time and correct myself with my paddle. I will be adding a fishfinder and anchor trolley over the winter.
For a first time Kayak I would definitely recommend this Lifetime Kayak!
