my biased opinion

Response to Canoe or kayak for fishing??

I have a 14 foot solo canoe, about 40 pounds, not as fast as a kayak or good in the wind because it rides higher, but I enjoy fishing out of it. It provides room for a tackle box and small cooler or other gear. I think weight is roughly equal or less on a solo canoe than a decked Kayak and depending on length and hull design a canoe actually draws less water so you can get into shallow areas. A sit on top works for fishing to. Stay away from decked kayaks unless you go light on tackle. Just my opinion.
