Most kayaks you will find you like are the more expensive models but there are some cheaper models that don't have the peddle drives or other bells and whistles.
When I bought it came down to fishing hands free most of the time with the Hobie mirage drive. This has been the biggest benefit I have found for the Hobie. It is not as fast as the skinnier and lighter model kayaks but it is stable and can hold some weight.
Go to a Demo Days if you can or go to ACK in Houston or Austin and rent some to test them out. You want to make sure before dropping over a grand on a kayak. Trust me! Once you know what you like then spend away but not before then or you may regret your purchase later.
Take your time. The fish will always be there!

The basic Heritage boats, Angler and Redfish, are really good, low-priced, all-water boats. They track well, spin well, and are wind-slick.
So many people are looking for little bass boats in kayaks now - they're a lot more stable, veritable wind barges, and heavy as all get-out, so much that many don't report weight in specs anymore.
A 10' Heritage weighs 44 lbs.

For some reason, the original post made red flags start waving, and lights start flashing in my head. (It gets very ...active... In there sometimes.)

Dude’s been spamming other sections of the boards too. It’s mostly stuff that looks cut and paste from poorly translated Wikipedia entries or something. Totally weird.

Yep, I noticed too. Could be a bot of some kind... There are implementations out there that can maintain decent conversation for quite long before you realize you are talking to machine.

Or a brilliant troll playing a long game.

I’m guessing it’s a google translate from some foreign advertisements or magazines.

I have owned a couple canoes and a couple kayaks and a canoe has nowhere near the versatility of a good fishing kayak.

Canoes you have to always be worried about wind and waves, in a fishing kayak you can stay out when most boats wouldn't venture out if you have the will to do so. It doesn't even matter if you are being swamped by 3 foot whitecaps, you just keep on paddling and you will make it.

Many fishing kayaks you can stand up in and move around enough to be comfortable and can sight fish etc. All the canoes I have ever been in have been much less stable then my kayaks.

They are also much more suited to fishing as they have rod holders, transducer mounts, fish finder mounts and a lot of storage both inside and outside.

To me the only advantage my canoe had was the ability to lay completely flat and have a nap... Not a high value on my priority list though.

As for the OP it all comes down to where you will be fishing the most and what you use for gear, personal comfort level etc. I absolutely love my hobie with its hands free pedal system but they are expensive especially now with this stupid dollar... Having a good raised seat like in the predator makes a big difference on comfort and staying dry. Overall the predator is a pretty nice boat, a little heavier and not the easiest paddling boat but very good all around if you are willing to live with that.

There are lots of other threads on here that I have answered kayak questions in before. If you search through my posts can probably find more information you might need.

Real end of the world is not when AI becomes self-aware and indistinguishable from humans, but when humans become indistinguishable from AI. We are witnessing the beginning -- when AIs start talking to each other, driving unsuspecting humans into conversation and steering it.
