I am looking for recommendations on my first kayak. I have been wade fishing and fly fishing Galveston (SLP and state park) and Freeport (Drum Bay and Christmas Bay) but I want to explore more of the area. I assume you guys have some opinions on solid kayaks and reasonable expectations.
- Budget: ~$1500
Transportation: Car/SUV top for now
Storage: Outdoor under cover.
Power: I am thinking paddle because of fly line management.
Location: Inshore bays and lakes. Not offshore.
- Is it reasonable to stand and fly fish in the bays? My balance is good but I'm worried about wakes. I've already had a run in with oysters.
Do I need to a 12ft or is a 10ft sufficient?
