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,

Thanks Flyrodder,

I checked out the pricing at . They have prices for with or without a rudder. They also have a price for a tarpon already set up for fishing. Jon seems to know his stuff, so I'd rather get an opinion about the fishing "extras" from you guys, who actually fish.

Hopefully, I can make a demo soon. I can't spend that money without taken a test drive. On a positive note, I found a neighbor who has a Ride. I'll check that out this week.

Thanks Guys

I guess I will just concentrate on the kayak, and add on as I need. I was afraid of the "non-customness" of a prepackaged fishing kayak. The Tarpon is one of the longer fishing yaks, so I'm thinking the tracking may not be SO bad without a rudder. Plus it should be easier to pivot without the rudder?
