outerwear for kayak fishing?

Bought a kayak (Hobie Outback with a mirage drive thanks Jerry)

What style/make PFD's and paddle gear does everybody suggest.

For the summer time I assume I'll be mostly sticking with the UV protective shirt and shorts. And any pair of shoes I feel like getting wet. And of course a lot of safety equip.

I also have two 3/2 wetsuit's a full and short.

Will these get any use? or should I be looking at dry suits or some breathable waterproof sailing gear. I hope to be using my new kayak as much as possible so any suggestion for gear would be great.

Thanks Hooper for the response.

I have a long list of items to buy and a PFD is on the top. So price is a bit of factor.

I have few in mind.

Extrasport Osprey Fishing & Striper Fishing
NRS Chinook Life Jacket
Stohlquist fisherman

There all close in price. The Stohl is on the high end. Anybody want to share your opinions if you own one.
Picked up a BARE drysuit on ebay yesterday. It's designed for wake boarding. Hopefully it will paddle/pedal worthy, and a EconoLipper. Anybody looking for a Boga style lipper should look into the EconoLipper.

Still haven't got a PFD yet still shopping
