Hello, for the last few weeks I have been researching and trying to find the kayak that will be right for me as my first boat. I'd been considering the perception conduit 13 at dicks, however I have found the opportunity to pick up a 17ft eclipse at the same price. I will mainly be exploring the local lakes and rivers, however I'm only an hours drive from Lake Erie and once I get my paddling skills up I may like to explore there. I'm 5'6" and 140lbs and I'm looking to primarily do exploring and fishing. Would this be a good fit for me?
