Living on Carolina Beach. Love all types of fishing from a local fresh water pond to a full day out in the Gulf Stream. Now looking to purchase a fishing/touring kayak so I can have fun and lose the weight all in one. Also to be mobile enough to camp on the numorous undeveloped barrier islands in the area. After a few hours of research I have concluded that the Hobie Quest would be the right choice. This is a lot more than I want to pay though. Is this overkill? I have been on a few multi day canoe/kayak trips but never purchased one. Is there a better fishing/touring yak out there that maybe doesn't have that popular name brand price? Let me know!
