I live in Central Il and have access to countless strip mine lakes. Issue is most do not have boat access so my wife and I have decided a Kayak might be the best way to go as we can carry it or add a two wheel cart to pull it on instead of fishing from shore. Can you steer me to a brand or specific one that would be Sit on Top, Tandem and maybe down the line attach a trolling motor for the bigger lakes? Some of these guys are over 100 acres. I’d like to stay under 2k if possible.
Thanks for any assistance.
BTW, this is an example of what we have access to. This is 5 minutes from our home, 4 lakes 130 acres of total water
