How come these deals are always 150 + miles from me. Seems like everyone is waking up to the fact you don't need to spend thousands of dollars to catch fish. I have 3 kayaks and every time I plan a trip I'm a boat or two short with nephew's son and friend etc wanting to go. I keep an eye out for cheap deals for loaners. How do flat water canoes compare to kayaks stability wise. I have a blue hole whitewater canoe,great for river fishing 16' a little long but can carry everyone's gear, that I'd never take on flat water unless I wanted to swim all day.
