Offshore kayak fishing is my passion but the one aspect that can make this style of fishing difficult is kayak selection. I have experimented with several kayaks over the years and I had yet to come across the perfect vessel.
I was trying to figure how I was going to get all of my gear into one of my sit on top kayaks. Most of the paddlers on this trip were taking canoes but I still preferred to use a kayak. Then it occurred to me that the best option would be a hybrid such as a Native Watercraft Ultimate 14 or a Wilderness Systems Commander 140. Because of their wide-open cockpit design, either would easily accommodate all of my gear while still providing an experience closer to my personal preferences.
