2 questions

Hi guys,

I have 2 questions. The first, I hope is not taboo. What are your feelings of canoues vs kayaks? What are the advantages/disadvantages of both?

Second, how much $ difference would there be between a Tarpon, and a Tarpon set up the way YOU guys like it set up. Also, in sot yak as long as the Tarpon, how neccessary is a rudder?

Thanks much,

If your looking to by 1 or the other go with a kayak. Its more versitile than a canoe.
Whatever kayak you might decide on getting get 1 with a rudder. It makes a lot of difference. Its like having a steering wheel on the kayak except you steer using foot peddles. I wish I would have gotten 1 for my kayak.
As for price ask Jon at:
Or go to the next Demo and try some of the other kayaks Jon has available.

When you buy a kayak don't buy 1 thats already rigged for fishing. You want to be able to rig the kayak for fishing yourself. That ways you can attach rod holders where ever you want them to be for easy access. Weasel is right you don't have to get a rudder when you buy a kayak. As I said above I don't have a rudder on my kayak and I do get by without 1. But there are a lot of advantages having a rudder on the yak.
