Kayak Fishing in Louisiana
Need advice for new kayak purchase
I'm relatively new to the area (Lafayette) and plan to take up inshore kayak/fly fishing. I moved here from northwest Montana where I fished rivers from rafts, drift boats, and inflatable pontoons. I also have a fair amount of white water kayak experience.
All of that said... I've narrowed my selection of kayaks down to two:
1) Jackson Cuda 14
2)Hobie pro Angler 14
I like the Hobie, because it frees up the hands... but does the drive system work as well as advertized? What happens in shallow water? How slow is it compared to the Cuda? What are the cons to the Hobie propulsion system? Any problems with the Cuda?
Any advice would be appreciated! I've researched both boats extensively... Now I'd like to hear from the folks who paddle them (or peddle).
