My husband recently purchased his first Kayak, an Ascend FS12 and has started fishing in some local small lakes and ponds in Indiana. Now I’m wanting to purchase one so I can join in on the fun! I’m in my 30’s and 5’2and 140 pounds. I’d like to stay under $800 and he’s pushing for me to get an Ascend but after reading tons on these message boards I’m considering the following kayaks:
Perception Pescador 10’ sit on top for $449 from Academy
Perception Pescador Pro 10’ sit on top for $729 from Academy or ack.com
Wilderness Tarpon 100 for $739
Ascend 10T for $549 from bass pro
Will one of these 10ft ones be a good choice for me? Any other suggestions?
Could you also recommend a few paddles and PFDs?
Also, my 6 year old son has $300 saved up and is wanting to buy his own kayak. I was thinking of just buying him one of the cheap $100 kids kayaks and seeing how into it he is before i let him spend $300 then possibly after hes done with the kids one I’d be ready to upgrade and he could have my 10ft one. We also have a 7 and 8 year old daughter so there’s a good chance they might want to get into it too! but then I have the issue of having to transport all these kayaks!
