I have a 10, and I've got to agree with these guys. It is work to paddle around. It's great in the surf, and I have a few spots that are not a far paddle, but if you are looking to cover any distance go longer. I do like the stability of my kayak though. I can stand in it and see all around me. It just depends on how you plan to fish and where you are going. Goodluck and tight lines!

I have a 14' Tarpon Wilderness Systems kayak with a detachable stabilizer. The stabilizer is worth every penny. I sit on the side of my yak to fish. It's super fast and with the stabilizer, more stable than any other kayak that doesn't have one. It's basically impossible to flip it with the stabilizer.

Ocean Kayak, Spec or Scrambler... These kayaks won't break the bank. They're 11'6", not to short and not super long. Easy to load in and out of the bed of the truck (6' bed) without needing a rack or trailer, unlike long kayaks. I've used mine in the surf and the flats fishing and they are my go to means for duck hunting. These kayaks aren't very fancy but they work for me.

You don't want that. A friend of mine bought a pelican and where the seem is it started to leak. You want a solid mold kayak.

If you can wait a month, go to one of the Austin Kayak demo days. http://www.austinkayak.com/demo

Try a few, see what you like, then find a used one on Craigslist or TKF.

Ocean Kayak Brand and either the Speck or Scrambler XT model. I found the Speck on sale at Academy for $300. I purchased the Scrambler on CL for $400 with seat, paddles, anchor, whistle, dry storage box, and tie down strap. There's good deals out there just got to look for them.

Before I purchased mine. I fished out of a friends 13' Prowler a few times but those are quite a bit more expensive.

I did alot of research and followed the recommendations for these and bought one of each.
Perception Pescador 12 - comfortable seat with great back support.
Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 - Lightweight and very stable.
Both entry level in your price range. Try to find used if possible but not a terrible price new on these.
I like both and would recommend.
Ocean Kayak website offers a lot of information for beginners.
