I think you should look long and hard before choosing a new yak. There are lots of great kayaks and accessories to choose from. Go to BCO and try out a few on the lake. Get to know people with different boats find out what they like and don't like. The style of fishing you do is also something to take into consideration. Not all Kayaks can be set up the same. These are some things to consider.

Malibu stealth 12 or 14.
I have the X factor and I love it. I wish I had bought the stealth because of the livewell.

WS Rides come to mind. BCO carried both last I knew. Wave Walk 500 is another but I'm kind of biased about that one. There is so many to choose from now compared to just 5 years ago.
