Hi there @thesunlover!

Thanks for being a part of the Community! Getting out on the water in a pedal kayak sounds like a lot of fun! 

There is a great article that specifically offers 
advice on selecting a kayak for fishing. It outlines some of the benefits of pedal kayaks as well as some different features that you may be looking for, that might confirm this is the boat for you!

In addition, I wanted to share a previous conversation where a customer was looking at similar kayaks. You might find the perspective on different models helpful as well as the great advice that was given by @REI-EthanS on the topic!

Hope this helps provide you with some more insight as you consider this fun purchase!  Please feel free to ask us anything else as questions arise!
