I looking for a kayak for my fishing hobby. Mainly freshwater ponds and lakes but i would also like to explore some rivers and even some marshes or sounds on occasion. Iv been looking at a pelican pursuit kayak at gander mountain. I also looked at some oldtowns. Any one have any input about these? Being a college student the budget is tough so im looking to spend about 300. I was also considering the kayak in this sites classifieds section. Seems like a good deal but the gas for the trip out there will easily add another $50 being that the cost of gas is so high. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
